Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a type of treatment that aims to help individuals with insomnia sleep better. Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep, or poor-quality sleep, despite having the opportunity to do so. Insomnia can negatively impact a person’s daily functioning and quality of life, as well as increase the risk for other mental and physical health problems.

Symptoms of insomnia may include difficulty falling asleep at night, waking up frequently during the night, waking up too early in the morning, feeling tired or unrefreshed after sleep, and difficulty concentrating or staying awake during the day. These symptoms may persist for a period of at least one month. Insomnia can lead to fatigue and difficulty concentrating, which can impair performance at work or school and increase the risk of accidents. It can also negatively affect mood, leading to symptoms of depression, anxiety, and irritability. Chronic insomnia is also associated with an increased risk of developing other physical health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia aims to change the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to insomnia. It typically involves a combination of education about sleep, relaxation techniques, and strategies to improve sleep hygiene (such as maintaining a consistent sleep schedule and avoiding stimulating activities before bedtime). It may also involve techniques to change negative thoughts and behaviors related to sleep (such as worrying about sleep or trying to force sleep), as well as strategies to increase exposure to natural light during the day and limit exposure to light at night.

Studies have consistently shown that CBT-I is an effective treatment for insomnia (Spielman, Caruso, & Glovinsky, 1987; Morin, Bootzin, Buysse, Edinger, Espie, & Lichstein, 2006). It has been found to be more effective than medication in the long term, and has fewer side effects (Smith, Perlis, Park, Smith, & Sateia, 2014).

My name is Nicholas James, Ph.D. I have experience working with individuals facing anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, insomnia, and caregiver strain. I focus on matching evidence-based therapies to the needs of my clients to meet their personal goals of recovery and growth.


I believe that change occurs through personal reflection, cultivating strengths and resources, and incorporating growth into everyday life. It is my goal that each session is collaborative and integrates needs, beliefs, and your background into a person-centered treatment plan.


I try to bring a genuine, humanistic atmosphere to every session. My therapeutic approach is centered in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and incorporates additional evidence-based practices to address unique needs that arise during therapy.

Benson Munyan Psychologist Orlando Florida

Benson Munyan, Ph.D.



My name is Dr. Benson Munyan. I specialize in working with those experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma. If you are reading this, there’s a good chance you’re looking for something. Whatever the origin of your story, you are here. There is no time like the present to change our tomorrow.


From our very first session, skills are introduced, demonstrated, and assigned as practice assignments between meetings. I collaboratively set each session agenda with my clients, ensuring we have time for following up since the last session, troubleshooting any problems with skills or homework, and working on new problems or material.


Let’s be honest. Sometimes, life is hard. And sometimes, it downright sucks. There, I said it. I believe we should be able to use everyday language in therapy, and that participating in therapy as our most genuine selves empowers us to better understand the challenges we’re facing as well as potential solutions.
