Get back your natural, honest sleep.


"This has been life changing. My son also struggles with his sleep and has difficulty with
his emotions.

I'm going to teach him all of these skills. We're both going to be just fine.

Thank you, Brian."


- 'Robert'



"I highly recommend Brian Curtis if you have insomnia!

I have suffered sleep problems for over 20 years and have relied on Ambien for
several years.

After working with Brian for a relatively short period of time, I am completely off
Ambien and have exceeded my sleep goals.

He is very professional and utilizes a process that is the Gold Standard in the
industry.

I no longer dread going to bed and feel much better after a good night of sleep!

Thank you Brian!"


- 'Sandra'

Chronic Stress:

Anxiety, depressed mood, post-traumatic stress, and ongoing sleep disruption negatively impacts our mental health, physical health, and can damage relationships with the people we love.

Evidence-based treatments for chronic stress involves the learning and practice of skills to increase relaxation, skillfully change our relationship to thoughts, emotions, and stressful situations, increase engagement with meaningful activities, deepen our relationships, be more present and in the moment, discover our values, and commit to living more open, flexible, authentic lives.

Chronic Stress.

Anxiety. Depression. Trauma. Disconnection.

Sleeping and Stress: Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing recurring nightmares often go hand-in-hand with chronic stress, including uncontrollable worry, depressed mood, stress following a traumatic experience, and feeling isolated from the people we love.

Holistic, integrated treatment: Rather than focusing on only one aspect of your health and wellbeing, we will work to build an individualized treatment plan that combines science and change with compassion and acceptance to help you finally find relief from chronic stress, to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling more energized and refreshed, and to start living a more authentic, values-based life.
