Gentle Sleep Coaching

A Family-Centered Approach to Infant Sleep

As a Gentle Sleep Coach I offer Nights With Nonny, a family-centered approach to sleep coaching that follows an individual child's cues and developmental patterns for a peaceful night's rest.

Unlike other sleep offerings, Gentle Sleep Coaching acknowledges that all children and family situations are unique and there is no one size fits all approach to working towards a full night's sleep for the whole family. Following the individual child's cues and developmental patterns to guide the process allows for a family-centered approach that ensures a child feels secure and surrounded for a peaceful night’s rest.

The Gentle Sleep Coach Program is the first and most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available. The program involves over 80 hours of training with a faculty panel that includes 2 medical doctors, a psychologist, an attorney, lactation counselor, postpartum doulas and a family therapist. Each coach must pass an exam and participate in case mentorship with Kim West, LCSW-C (a.k.a. “the Sleep Lady”) who has been helping tired parents for over 20 years. Clinical mentorship and ongoing advanced training are required to maintain certification as a Gentle Sleep Coach.

Serving as a postpartum doula and lactation consultant and educator for over two decades, I have strived to continually gain knowledge and build a robust toolkit to best support the families I partner alongside. Moving into my formal training and certification in the  Advanced Mentorship Program of Gentle Sleep Coaching in July of 2022 seemed like the next logical step to be able to surround families with thoughtful and personalized care.
