My Primary Care Manager suggested and referred me to Dr Glidewell. I was hesitant since insurance didn’t cover the cost. I was on prescription meds for 8 years. I started when my hubby was diagnosed with an invasive thyroid cancer. Didn’t help that I had been a shift worker for years and had this incredibly stressful job.😶. I can’t even remember when I slept through the night. I really was wanting to get off prescription meds. Regular visits, and keeping my sleep log combined with an afternoon with Dr Oka started me off on the path. I wasn’t so good at the formal mindfulness exercises but I found that I practiced mindfulness without realizing it. For me, it was worth the cost, as I used to toss and turn endlessly despite being on prescription meds. With this program, I have healthier sleep patterns and feel like I have conquered my insomnia. Even if I regress, I have a plan. Yay!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish that I had started with this book

When I was trying to figure out my insomnia puzzle, I read a lot of books related to sleep. None of them explained the very non-intuitive nature of insomnia nearly as well as this book. That is, none of them helped me to gain the understanding of how insomnia works that I was desperately searching for. After reading Glidewell's book, I now feel that I get it. That's powerful because once you understand a problem, you feel empowered to resolve it. The book also explains how to go about resolving insomnia. If you suffer from insomnia, this is the book you want to read.

Dr. Glidewell is kind and easy to work with. Having struggled with sleep for years, I really appreciated Dr. Glidewell’s expertise and guidance. It helped so much to have someone who really cared about me getting better and gave me skills and confidence that I could sleep better.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE manual for insomnia sufferers

The content of Glidewell's book is based in research and offers a willing reader proven methods to free oneself of insomnia and get off medication. The book is concise, well written and easy to follow. As a psychologist, I recommend this book highly.

Dr. Glidewell discerned quickly that I had other issues affecting my ability to sleep. So not only did he work with me on my sleep struggles but also my emotional disorder. After a year of meeting with Dr. Glidewell, I have gained better sleep habits and am sleeping better, and also now have the tools to continue to mindfully manage my emotions and choose alternative ways of thinking. Dr. Glidewell is sincere, professional, and patient. The program works if you do the work it takes.

I sleep reliably every night.

It's been a month and a half now, and I sleep reliably every night. It's not always amazing sleep, but it's sleep (although this weekend was amazing sleep - 9 hours each night!). At first, I took half of a THC/CBD gummy to help me sleep, but that was only for about a week. Now the only things I use for sleep are an eye mask (mandatory) and wax ear plugs - not even a fan in my room anymore (which is great because you can't always travel with a box fan). I find the wax ear plugs to be incredibly helpful not only for blotting out environmental noises, but for helping me hear my own rhythmic breathing - which does a great job of lulling me to sleep.

Ross M's Sleep Story

I’ve been seeing Dr. Glidewell and he’s been working with me for probably a good 7 to 8 months now. Now, it’s unbelievable, I can go to bed 10:00 to 10:30. I will sleep almost all the way through the night to 5:00 or 6:00 in the morning. I may wake up once, but I can always fall right back to sleep following the guidelines and the methods and procedures that they used in The Insomnia Clinic. (Click Ross's photo to hear his full story!)

Will L's Sleep Story

Life now is better because I can see how to beat this addiction. I can see that, with Dr. Glidewell’s help, and his advice, his encouragement, his understanding, and maybe most of all his patience, I can beat this. And if I can beat this, who knows what else I can do. (Click Will's photo to hear his full story.)

I enjoyed working with Dr. Glidewell over the course of nearly a year. We had a guided sleep recovery program (i.e. a regularly scheduled program with defined steps -- not just a-la-carte appointments). Dr. Glidewell does a good job of holding you accountable without being abrasive or impatient. He won't hesitate to speak if he thinks you're losing discipline, but he presents information in such a way that it's clear that he's giving feedback in the context of what's scientifically proven to improve sleep. I didn't feel personally judged during our sessions, and Dr. Glidewell is good about giving context to his recommendations. As an example, when I'd have a few bad nights (i.e. even if I tried all our usual strategies and failed), he'd reassure me about how the habits we were building would result in better sleep long-term. He had detail, scientific evidence, and factored in my specific context. He was reasonable in his expectations, without being too casual or laissez-faire about it. He was consistent, too, and having a reliable idea of how he'd respond helped ground me in my progress over the course of our program. It gave me the confidence to go into each night with a positive outlook towards sleep, and I felt that even if I had a bad night or two, that I didn't have to worry about every night. My experience bore this out, too, as my sleep improved markedly during our time working together. In terms of style, I'd say that he stays more on-script than off. He listened to me, though, and he used the feedback I gave about my sleep habits/patterns to inform how he presented strategies and recommendations. The CBT aspect of the program was a little prescriptive, and I would occasionally want to talk my way through issues before moving toward ways to improve, but I came to a doctor in large part because I couldn't just talk my way out of insomnia. I wanted a more scientific approach, and so his style worked for me. As a result of our sessions, I've learned more about what I can do to sleep better. I've made a few lifestyle changes, and (unsurprisingly) the more disciplined I've been, the more my results have improved. I'd recommend Dr. Glidewell to others looking to improve their experience with sleep. He does ask for commitment, but anyone with serious problems should look for a provider who takes their problems seriously. He meets that expectation, and I got what I was looking for during our work together: namely, better sleep.

Prior to coming to the Sleep Clinic, I had been struggling with getting any amount of quality sleep for months. I could only manage 4-5 hours of sleep per night, and that was waking up every 60-90 minutes. I tried both prescription and OTC meds for sleep, but nothing worked. I have been a client of the Sleep Clinic now for 6-7 months now, I am sleeping 7-8 hours every night and I only wake up once or twice per night. I have learned so much about Sleep and how important it is for overall health and recovery. The methods and practices Dr. Glidewell and his team use are very effective and produce results. Now I admit, I was skeptical at first, but the results speak for themselves. IF you are willing to put in the time and effort, (and yes, there is some effort and work you will need to do) the outcome will be well worth it. With the vast improvement in my sleep over the past 3-4 months, I am now more focused, alert and feel much more energized each day. If you truly want to improve your sleep and really, the overall quality of your life, go and see what Dr. Glidewell and his team can do for you!

Sherry B's Sleep Story

I actually feel way more rested in the morning when I get up. I still go to sleep within 15-20 minutes and it’s kind of like, kind of shocking, that I am able to wake up in the morning and not feel ran over. It’s just a wonderful feeling. (Click Sherry's photo to watch her full story.)

I love that the doctor teaching the class has 20+ years of sleep research experience, she was amazing and gave explanation for everything she taught and recommended. She was available for multiple questions after the seminar. Within 1 month of the seminar, my sleep is 1000x better than it was, I am nearly completely better and it continues to get better. I am forever grateful. I was getting zero to 30 minutes of sleep most nights, it was awful. Thank you!
