My passion for working with families developed out of strong interest in overall child development, but I did not become interested in sleep until my son was born. While trying to figure out how to help our family get much needed sleep I talked to all my friends, co-workers, and clients, and it became very obvious to me that the struggles we were going through with my son were much too common. This is when I started researching everything about sleep: from biology and sleep patterns of human sleep to various methods and techniques of teaching children healthy sleep habits.

I have worked with families and young children for over 12 years as a nanny, teacher, parent coach, and social worker. From my experience of working with families I have learned that anyone can achieve a good night’s sleep with some guidance and support. I believe that every family is unique, so my approach to teaching healthy sleep habits is very individualized: I help families set their goals and decide on the methods they want to use, so that everyone feels comfortable about the approach they use to teach their children healthy sleep habits.
