5 yr old nightmares EVERY NIGHT 2-4am, for past 3

Patient : 5 yr old nightmares EVERY NIGHT. 2-4am, for past 3 years. Usually awakes verbally stating "im scared". Then a few whimpers. Occasionally walks around the house I find her asleep on the couch. No recollection of walking down there in pitch black (which terrifies her). Occasionally she stands in the doorway until I awake then casually gets back into bed like it never happened. Tried everything from coddling to ignoring...help?
