frequently Asked Questions
Step 1: Choose your perfect package. If you’re not sure which package to choose or you’d like to connect ahead of time to make sure we are a good fit, book a complimentary discovery call with me.
Step 2: After you purchase a package, you will receive a link to my calendar to book your 60-minute consultation. In the meantime, you will complete an intake questionnaire that will give me all the information I need to create a personalized sleep plan for your family. I will also send you some checklists and other materials to review and work through as you’re waiting to get started.
Step 3: On the date/time you select for our consultation, we will meet on Zoom to review your sleep plan. I will walk you through it, answer any questions you have about it, and make sure you’re feeling clear & confident about next steps.
Step 4: After you pick a start night to begin your plan, your support period will begin! Depending on selected package, you will have access to me via email and/or Voxer messaging. For babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, I will also follow along with your child’s sleep on a digital sleep tracking log that you will fill in daily (it’s super simple – promise!) These support tools are helping for making sure all your questions are answered and we reach your sleep goals. At the end of the day, my goal is to not only get your family sleeping well, but make sure you feel comfortable, supported, and confident throughout the entire process.
Step 5: CELEBRATE all the sleep that your family is now getting!
Listening to your child cry is really, really hard. But I’ll be 100% honest with you (now & always) that there will likely be some crying during the learning process. There is no perfect formula to ensure zero crying. Crying is one way that babies protest the newness, and while tears are not necessary for sleep training to be successful, they can be a byproduct of habit change.
But even though some tears are inevitable, they are also manageable! I will provide you with a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to sleep training that serves to minimize unnecessary tears by accounting and controlling for the many variables associated with learning to sleep. I will also give you a clear plan for handling the tears that accompany habit change so that you can show up in a consistent and confident way for your baby.
Using my background in child development & infant mental health, I will teach you methods to minimize the crying and support you through the anxiety it may cause you. Many families tell me that the amount of tears they experience on a daily basis after sleep training is far fewer than what they were experiencing before when sleep was a struggle.
