In 2010, Dr. Siebern joined a group of 8 sleep experts to work on a national initiative with the Veterans Health Administration to develop a training program for the national healthcare providers within the Veterans Affairs in using Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia (CBTi) to treat Veterans with insomnia.

She has been published in peer reviewed journals, national media outlets, acted as consultant with companies on sleep and scientific psychology topics, and serves on the editorial board for Sleep Science and Practice.

She has a passion for the field of sleep medicine and enjoys helping patients improve their sleep and communicating the importance of sleep health to the public.

Dr. Siebern receives many requests from individuals around the globe asking to receive CBTi treatment. Many of these individuals lack access to CBTi due to many factors. Based on this Dr. Siebern created sleepfitness with the user in mind bringing her experience as a healthcare provider certified in behavioral sleep medicine. With its efficient and simple design sleepfitness makes CBTi easily accessible and straightforward to implement.

When you are not sleeping well and you’ve chosen an online CBTi program for help you might not be inclined to:

  • read an e-book or long articles on insomnia
  • complete a series of questions about your sleep prior to starting an online program,
  • be required to do math formulas to calculate your sleep log data daily and weekly,
  • or send in your sleep log data and wait to have it calculated and sent back to you.

Sleepfitness is designed as a 6-week program with less than 1 hour of videos to watch each week so you know what you will be implementing. Upon registering you will gain access to Week 1 of the program with the 7-day free trial. Once in the site you’ll find that the sleep tracking is easy as all the calculations are done in real time and you have immediate access to view the graphed results of your sleep data. You have the option to print or email a copy of your sleep data for your records and share with your healthcare providers. Also, it is important to note that your data is YOUR data and it is not shared with your insurance company, 3rd party affiliates, or used in any research data. Sleepfitness is the only online CBTi program currently available that provides all of the above features, a 7-day free trial, and is created by an experienced healthcare provider certified in behavioral sleep medicine by the American Board of Sleep Medicine.
