Coaching/Product Options:

Parent Coaching

Are you trying to find a way to deal with your child’s hitting, biting, or other forms of aggression?  (You want to give a clear message that the behaviour is not acceptable, but you don’t know how to do that without punishing.)

Are you trying to orchestrate transitions that work for everyone without losing your cool?

Are you trying to figure out how to honour your child’s emotions during temper tantrums, anger, or frustration, and help them move through their feelings without hurting themselves or others?

Are you exhausted, and trying to figure out how to have a better night’s sleep, while still supporting your child’s night-time needs?

Are you trying to decide when and whether to start potty-training, and how to go about it without stickers or M&M’s?

Are you working through sibling issues, and wondering how they can possibly be so mean to each other, when you love each of them so much?

Are you wanting to choose the right schooling situation for your child and family, but you’re overwhelmed with the choices that are available?

Are you looking ahead to the next phase in your child’s growth, and wanting to understand more about what to expect and how to prepare the physical, mental, emotional, or social environment that your child will thrive in?

Have you already read a bunch of books or attended classes, and do you need some specific, honed-in time to figure out which steps come first for you to get you from where you are now to being the parent you want to be?


Or are you just so overwhelmed that the idea of trying to figure it out on your own is exhausting?

Sleep Coaching

1.5 hour Get-on-Track Session

Many parents these days have fears about creating bad habits that will ruin their child’s sleep forever. This reassuring option is for families with more sleep questions than sleep issues, who have read conflicting information, or are trying to figure out a strategy for moving forward with their little one. I will help you tune in to your child’s personality as it affects sleep, tune in to your own intuition, and get you on track so that you feel peaceful and confident with your approach to your baby’s sleep moving forward.



Reset Sleep Program

This package is for families with mild to severe sleep issues.

This package includes:

    • Get Sleep Now Audio/Workbook for your review before we meet
    • Sleep Inventory (completed by you and reviewed by me before we meet)
    • 1.5 hour initial meeting, including detective work, tour of your home, and creating an initial strategy
    • Second meeting within 1 to 2 weeks
    • 3.5 hours of coaching, in person, by Skype, or by phone.

Strategizing in three areas:

    • Helping you understand how babies sleep and how your baby’s sleep will improve
    • Helping you improve your own sleep immediately
    • Helping your baby learn to sleep better, gently and consistently
    • Urgent phone access for an immediate conversation depending on my availability, or an emergency appointment within 48 hours.

Helping a baby learn to sleep is not a quick fix, and illnesses, teething, introduction of solids, and developmental stages have big effects on sleep. This package will help you to see measurable improvement in your baby’s sleep, help you to get more sleep right away, and give you confidence about supporting your baby’s sleep moving forward.
