My name is Katelyn Anderson, Founder/CEO of Equip Sleeping Co. I love to connect with others through my knowledge and experience. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and therapist. I have 12+ years of experience in the mental health field with focuses on anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance use, and insomnia. I, too, have struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. I was having major sleep issues at the height of the pandemic.
As a therapist, I know that sleep issues are all too common. The majority of individuals with symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders have a difficult time falling asleep and/or staying asleep.
I started searching for resources for myself and my clients that focus on improving sleep AND mental health- only to find there weren’t any. So I decided to build a company focusing on the intersection of the two.
I created Cozy Case™ out of necessity for myself! I have always slept with a stuffed animal for comfort to self-soothe and decrease my anxiety. Despite this, I was finding myself waking more often in the middle of night. I was searching in my bedding for my stuffed animal, which was either lost in my bedding or on the floor. Once found, I was awake. My sleep cycle was disrupted and I had to settle myself all over again. I created Cozy Case™ with functionality, aesthetics, comfort, and mental health in mind. Cozy Case has drastically improved the quality of my sleep. I no longer wake up searching for comfort. I know that the plush sides of Cozy Case™ will be there for me to hug and hold no matter which way I toss and turn, which is so much better than my snoring husband! 😉
My husband, Brandon, is an Army vet and COO of our company. We’re raising our two beautiful sons just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Our son, Owen, also finds comfort in cuddling his Cozy Case™ throughout the night.
