Sleep Problems

McLean Counseling Center

Sleep is essential and significant part of our daily routine. We do spend one third of our lives asleep, and the effects of poor sleep can impact every part of our life; especially memory, mood, and the overall ability to enjoy life.
With years of experience treating sleep disorders we apply the most natural, conservative, and effective solutions to restore this most essential part of your health. The goal of our center is to treat your insomnia so you can sleep soundly again, ideally, with as little or no medication as possible.
At Mclean Counseling Center, as part of our program clients see two specialists – Ehsan Habibpour, MD and Melanie yousefi, DNP with complementary expertise in sleep disorders, pharmacology, and behavioral treatments for insomnia for the best possible outcomes.


Insomnia Services:


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia

an effective and proven method to improve and maintain sleep with minimal or no medication.


when needed, we’ll work together to find the most minimal and conservative medications to help you sleep when you need to – and we’ll continue to work on techniques to further reduce your need for medication going forward.

Comprehensive care

In addition to a complete evaluation of sleep issues and patterns, we always explore daytime factors that may be contributing to poor sleep. We’ll explore factors such as stress, anxiety, and daily habits that may be hurting your sleep at night, and give you the tools to support healthy sleep habits from every possible angle. With a background in both Sleep Medicine and Psychiatry, we offer a unique approach to achieving the best possible outcomes.

ONE in THREE adults suffers from a sleep disorder – whether it’s trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or any other sleep problems affecting your sleep schedule; a lack of sleep and fatigue can have tremendous impact on focus, energy, mood and productivity.

Insomnia most commonly results in daytime fatigue and night time frustration. By day, low energy can result in low mood, and increased anxiety – as many as 40% of patients with insomnia will also have a coexisting psychiatric condition – most often depression and or a panic disorder. Unrestorative sleep also causes memory impairment, has been associated with immune dysfunction, and can also exacerbate pain symptoms.

With years of experience in sleep medicine and psychiatry, there is no aspect of day or night that we cannot improve together.
