I’ll help you find a beautiful balance between your needs and your child’s needs through a customized sleep plan based on your child’s needs, your needs and goals and the sciences of sleep biology and sleep behavior.

I’m not your typical  “Sleep Consultant.” I’m a Perinatal Mental Health Professional and Lactation Educator-Counselor.

Yet, my most important qualification for supporting you is true empathy. I created the ¨Sleep Savvy Method” because I was suffering the effects of severe sleep deprivation- even though, as a postpartum doula and former nanny, I’d known all about every “sleep training” method. 

Those methods weren’t sitting well with me and I needed to develop something more aligned with science… and my heart. It worked beautifully- and it’s been working beautifully for hundreds of other families for more than 10 years! 

I WILL HELP YOU BALANCE YOUR ETHIC OF ATTACHMENT & DESIRE TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILD’S DEVELOPMENT WITH YOUR OWN ESSENTIAL NEEDS.

The 5 Reasons Your Baby Still Wakes Up So Much (and how to get more sleep!)

We have to know WHY our babies are waking up so frequently before we can decide how to make the changes to get the sleep we all need and deserve!

The 5 Reasons Your Baby Still Wakes Up So Much (and how to get more sleep!)

Listen to the audio class and subscribe to my mailing list!

Listen to the episode and subscribe to my mailing list!

Honestly, the worst thing about sleep deprivation in the first year for me was not knowing WHY my child was still waking so frequently! 

Other sleep consultants want to put you in a one-size box and tell you, "You're doing it all wrong (co-sleeping! feeding at night! Too late bedtime!) Now make all of these changes for X of baby." But most sleep consultants don't have a firm grasp of the biological and behavioral reasons behind their recommendations. 

You're probably doing a LOT right. And your baby and your family are unique. 

This podcast episode will help you figure out what your specific sleep challenge might be keeping you and your baby waking all night and how you can move toward making the magical, gentle and respectful changes need to make your sleep dreams come true!

Im Finally Sleeping Again.

Thank you very much for this detailed plan. Our little girl is happily sleeping and without Cry-it-Out!  I felt like a new person b/c I hadn’t had that much sleep in a row in over a year.  I even started having dreams again! Thanks so much for your help. I honestly feel like a different person!

Fixed Our Days for Better Nights.

Thank you for helping us realize our sleep challenges were really gentle discipline challenges and helping us have a clear plan for dealing with all of the fighting of every boundary that Z was doing. It never occurred to me the fixing daytime challenges would help our sleep but it has tremendously and I now have such great communication with my tiny person.>

Potty as Bonding Time.

Her potty learning has actually been a great bonding time for us, especially as she becomes increasingly mobile. Everyone at her ‘baby college’ class always asks how she got so great at pottying so soon, and while a lot of it is her, I really credit and thank you.
