One of my core beliefs around sleep work and parenthood in general, is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. This is the pillar of my approach as a Pediatric Sleep Consultant. There are certainly scientifically proven learnings about sleep for humans of all ages, but these teachings are a guide to creating something tailored to your family and child’s needs. We’ll work together and listen to your baby to give them the gift of restorative sleep.
As you know, I am a mom. And I am a sensitive mom at that. I bring that energy to my coaching. As a result, I will always be sensitive and respectful to your feelings. Chances are, I have felt similarly during my own parenting journey.
My methodologies are evidence-based and my techniques are respectful. This means that sleep work doesn’t have to involve endless hours of crying or leave you feeling emotionally drained. Instead, you can experience many moments of connection to your child throughout the process and sleep train in a way that feels aligned with who you are as a parent.
Another core contributor to my approach comes from the experience of raising my daughter, who has a neurodivergent diagnosis. This means that the mainstream messaging around parenting strategies and solutions often doesn’t fit my child’s needs. Through this journey, I have developed a deep sense of compassion, empathy, and understanding of diversity – all of which I bring to my work. I consider it a privilege to work with other families navigating the nuances and differences that a diagnosis such as autism brings to the journey around sleep.
With this said, inclusivity is a top priority at Slumber and Shine. I am dedicated to creating a safe, welcoming space for families of all races, abilities, religious backgrounds, LGBTQ identities, and diverse structures.
