Do Talkspace therapists have experience treating insomnia?

Yes! From our network of thousands of licensed therapists, many are trained in treating insomnia and other sleep disorders. Our matching process will pair you with a therapist trained in CBT-I who also matches any other needs and preferences you specify.

Will I get medication for insomnia?

No, Talkspace Sleep Therapy is a behavioral therapy program, designed to empower you to identify and eliminate habits that are keeping you from good rest. While sleeping pills can be a quick-fix, they can become addictive and reduce sleep quality over time.
