It's a Dracaena, Todd. The most common issue with them is over-watering. You don't need to water them until the top 2 inches of compost is bone-dry (stick you finger in to test.) They also don't like direct sunlight, but do need a reasonable amount of natural light. Feed then with something like Baby Bio plant food mixed according to instructions every fortnight during spring and summer. They also need re-potting into fresh multi-purpose compost every 2 to 3 years.
If you think over-watering could be the issue, don't water it now until the compost dries out and re-pot it in spring. You can cut it back at that point and new growth will come from the cut stems, but it does take several weeks before you see the first signs of buds forming on the bare stems. The bits of stem you cut off can be potted-up to make new plants.
I had one about 6 feet tall and cut it back as described earlier this year. This is it now with 2 of the babies:
