Hi! If you're here, I'm guessing your little human is struggling with sleep, which means YOU are having some rough nights, too. I am so glad you're here - I will help you transition your rough nights into restful sleep! 

I have always valued sleep and been more of a morning person. When the clock strikes 10pm, it is LATE and time for bed! I like spending my evenings playing games or relaxing on the couch with my husband, and dog and cat. It is truly relaxing because we know "lights out" means our daughter will sleep until morning.


But it wasn't always like that. 

I get it! I've been where you are, too. In June 2020 of Covid, I was laid off at 8 months pregnant. Then, when my daughter was two months old, we found out she had ALCAPA, a rare congenital heart defect and she needed emergency open-heart surgery where she spent almost 3 months in the hospital fighting for her life and recovering. She inspired my book My Scar is Beautiful.

When we returned home, even with all that she had been through she was the best baby! Rarely fussy, always happy, and smiling. So, when she would cry, my panic alarms would go off. didn't know if she was waking up crying because her heart was still in pain or if it was nightmares of what she'd been through. Turned out she was now just a normal 6 month old. So, I get it. I know the anxiety and frustration that comes with crying and the challenge of getting through the day with little to no sleep. I had physical and emotional PTSD and it was overwhelming and scary and I felt helpless. I'd stay up just watching the monitor to make sure she was breathing.

So, I dove into all the books to help her sleep and once she slept better, I realized the power and importance of getting quality, restful sleep. We were exponentially less stressed and my mental health and confidence as a parent improved drastically! My husband and I were well-rested and had time and energy to spend on each other and our daughter. She began to hit more developmental milestones and stopped waking overnight.

As it was during the peak of Covid-19, I knew returning to the corporate world with a high-risk child was not an option for me. I've always been passionate about making a difference for others, so when I realized that improving their sleep could transform others’ lives, I knew I had found my purpose!

As a parent, I understand the benefits of restful sleep and wanted to provide guidance to other moms and dads in navigating the overwhelming amount of information available on the internet, in books, and through courses. I'm committed to helping families overcome their children's sleep struggles and attain a good night's sleep.

"I genuinely love and am committed to helping families go from feeling tired of being tired, overwhelmed, frustrated, and dreading bedtime, to feeling relaxed, empowered, and confident with easy, enjoyable, peaceful nights and naps.

Everyone deserves to Sleep Tight Tonight ."

As a certified pediatric sleep consultant, I understand the weight and frustration of needing help but not knowing where to turn. That’s why my mission is simple: give my clients the wellness education, tools and resources that they need to identify the cause of their problems, understand the processes to fix them, and put a plan together that’s personalized and effective.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to establishing healthy and independent sleep habits for children. So, whether your child is struggling with bedtime, naps or overnights, I will help you find solution.

Sleep deprivation is no joke and very real. Parenthood is hard and being sleep deprived makes it nearly impossible. You desperately want sleep. Your partner desperately wants sleep. And your child wants sleep! You can Google parenting/sleep advice, you can sift through Facebook groups, you can even read books, but let's be honest. Some of the information is conflicting, confusing, and can even be outdated or unsafe. OR you can let me help you and together we can get your family sleeping better in a matter of days.

I am passionate about helping others sleep again  - and it is life changing!

Sleep training requires trust. I know this. And I am grateful my clients choose to put their trust in me! My services are not one-size-fits all.

I welcome you with open arms including, but not limited to traditional, LGBTQ+ families, single-parent or multiple parent families, adoptive or foster families, grandparents caring for the child, and any other type of family that you may identify as.
