In brief: Cognitive behavior

Cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt) is helpful and gives a practical approach to dealing with stress induced sleep disorders.
Try to seek out someone who is certified in cbt.

In addition, good sleep habits and a generally healthy lifestyle decrease stress and promote healthy sleep.

In brief: Try these:

Have a consistent bedtime and wake up time.
No naps. No/very little alcohol. No caffeine (in coffee, tea, soda, chocolate) after noon. No reading/tv/ipad/etc in bed--"bed is for sleep or sex and nothing else". Write ur concerns/worries in a journal before bed. Try meditation/prayer/guided imagery/breathing techniques. Won't fix it immediately, but over time--better sleep!
