As a Certified Sleep Sense Consultant, I am dedicated to helping parents learn the skills to teach their children to become independent, healthy sleepers (and get themselves more sleep in the process.)
I work intimately with families to build a customized program that allows you, as parents, to feel confident in the gentle changes we will make to transform your children into good sleepers. I provide the support, knowledge and guidance for your child to improve his overall sleep in days. Hiring a sleep consultant provides the key to success, an outside person to lean on through the exhaustion and stress! Someone who has been there before, and can provide encouragement to help you get to the other side. Someone to guide you through the endless supply of sleep advice in books and online. I look forward to being this person for your family.
As a mom to three young boys, I’ve experienced plenty of sleep deprivation. With my oldest, he woke up a “mere” 6-10x per night before he started sleeping somewhat decently. With my middle son, he woke every 45-90 minutes, all night long, every night. After hitting rock bottom with my middle son, I found help through the Sleep Sense Program. It was developed by world renowned sleep expert Dana Obleman. It is a step by step sleep plan that was easy to follow, with one-on-one support and guidance through the process. I always thought I was alone in my sleep struggles, that we would never have a good night sleep. Instead, I had the support and guidance I needed to help my son (and in turn, myself!) get the sleep we both desperately needed. Within a couple of nights, Luke was sleeping well through the night, and taking solid naps. He was finally getting the sleep he needed for his health, happiness and development. My youngest son benefited from practicing good sleep skills from the start, and was a well-rested, happy baby. Once each of my boys were sleeping well, I had much more patience, my husband and I were less stressed, and our family was happier. Having the time to spend with my husband (or to have time for myself) every night has been an amazing additional benefit of my children getting the restorative sleep they need.
I understand how challenging and stressful it can be for parents to make changes to their child’s sleep habits while second-guessing every step of the process. My focus is to educate and empower parents to help their child get the quality sleep they need. I will work with you to create a customized plan based on your child’s needs, so everyone in the family can get a good night’s sleep. I provide support throughout the entire process, so you never feel lost or alone. Good sleep is possible!! Let me show you how!
