I quickly realized how important sleep was to my girls’ development and behavior. Word got around and I became the go-to sleep guru for my friends, and friends of friends, so much so that I was inspired to start my own sleep consulting practice. I completed an extensive sleep-training program covering all aspects of baby and children’s sleep to become a certified infant and child sleep consultant through the Family Sleep Institute.
In 2019, I added to my toolbox by becoming certified as a child behavior consultant through Sharyn Timerman and The Early Years, Inc. Child Behavior Certification Program.
It is my goal to empower parents and provide them with the necessary tools to build foundations that will last a lifetime, to encourage respect and cooperation, and to provide strategies to set clear and respectful boundaries that promote cooperation and calmness in the home.
My reputation for having a warm and non-judgmental personality immediately puts parents at ease. Through custom sleep plans, behavior recaps, 1:1 consultations, ongoing parental support, guest lectures, and group classes, I guide parents to teach their children to become healthy sleepers and to turn parenting challenges into learning opportunities. Together we can decrease the struggle and increase the cooperation with your children to help make parenting enjoyable and fun.
When I am not helping families get a better night’s sleep and bringing peace to their homes, I enjoy a balanced life spending time with my husband and my three girls, cooking, baking, and staying active.
