Nest Family Sleep Consulting

Healthy Sleep is ESSENTIAL

My customized approach to sleep consulting will support and empower your family so you can have a calmer, well rested, and peaceful household.

Does Your Family Need Help With:

  • Bedtime struggles
  • An  overtired, cranky  child
  • Night wakings
  • Transitioning your child to their own bed or bedroom
  • Creating an age-appropriate schedule
  • Early  morning  wakings
  • Napping
  • Managing  the  stress  and  anxiety  of  parenting
  • Sleep  regressions
  • Making  sense  of  all  of  the  conflicting  advice  about  sleep?



I use a customized, holistic, integrative approach to child sleep with my clients. I think of myself as a sleep investigator. After we determine your sleep goals, I will look at all of the potential factors that can impact your child’s sleep, including but not  limited to;  schedule, nutrition, socialization, sleep environment, developmental stages, and the emotional well being of the family and  the  child. My method is not one size  fits  all,  but  rather a completely customized, step by step  plan. You will learn the connection between your own health and wellbeing, and your child’s. Together, we will get to the root of the real underlying causes of your child’s sleep challenges, and build healthy habits that will last for years to come. 

Why is Making Sleep a Priority SO Important?

Sleep is like water, oxygen, and food. We need it to survive! Your infant, or child’s brain development also depends heavily on sleep. Children who sleep more have longer attention spans, and can better regulate their moods.  Also ,during sleep, every part of our bodies are repairing and growing. When we don’t get enough sleep, our bodies produce the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline to get us through the day. Infants and children are even more sensitve to becoming overtired and overstimulated. So, the overtired child is running on stress hormones. This is why overtired children often seem hyperactive and full of energy.

When your child isn’t sleeping, neither are you. The cycle of exhaustion can cause everyone in your house to dread naps and bedtime. It doesn’t have to feel that way! Book a free 15 minute call today to see how I can help restore the peace back into bedtime!

”Thank you, again. I can't say it enough! Life is so much more manageable than it was a few months ago. I can't believe how different I feel and how much more I'm able to enjoy her now that we're both sleeping through the night!”
