Natalie Rolle has been helping people sleep using non-drug methods since 2015 when she began working with student Veterans at Colorado State University (CSU) at the Center for Community Partnerships. An important part of helping Veterans have successful higher education outcomes was the Restoring Effective Sleep Tranquility (REST) program that uses cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI). Natalie spends most of her time supporting Veterans with chronic insomnia to achieve better sleep quality resulting in improved daytime functioning and quality of life.
Natalie (MOT OTR/L) earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with an organismal concentration from (CSU) in 2012 graduating cum laude. Natalie then went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy (OT) from CSU in 2014. Subsequently she was trained in CBTI at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in both basic and advanced courses. Natalie began seeing additional clients at Northern Colorado Sleep Consultants, LLC in early 2018 where she was trained by Dr. Moorcroft in another behavioral treatment for insomnia called guided mindfulness meditation with acceptance treatment for insomnia (GMATI). This added to her experience of working with mindfulness and meditation since 2015
Natalie has multiple publications as well as given numerous presentations locally, nationally, and internationally.
She uses the same behavioral methods for insomnia and sleep-related problems as Dr. Moorcroft and enjoys working with all people in addition to veterans.
