LogIn Page for Treebook No Longer Works

After completing the "Creating the Friendship" video I now get the following error when I attempt to sign into my Treebook site:

treebook/app/views/devise/sessions/new.html.erb where line #4 raised:

undefined method `user_session_path' for #<ActionDispatch::Routing::RoutesProxy:0x00000100fdeea8>

4: <%= simple_form_for(resource, :as => resource_name, :url => session_path(resource_name), html: {class: "well"}) do |f| %>

I've checked the project files and mine match what's provided on the website, I've migrated my DB - I'm not sure where I'm supposed to look. I checked the routes.db as well and I can't find any errors.

Any suggestions? Every other part of the site works except for the login screen.

The problem WAS in the routes.db!

I had

post "/login" => 'devise/sessions#create', as: :new_user_session

when it should be

post "/login" => 'devise/sessions#create', as: :user_session

All is well in treebook land!
