From an early age, Erin developed a passion to help families which led her to a career as a family therapist.

When she became a mom and recovered from postpartum depression with sleep deprivation, she knew that she wanted to help more families become rested, healthy, and happy. Erin received her certification from the Center for Pediatric Sleep Management in order to change the lives of more families by providing them with the right tools and compassion needed to become well rested.

Working with Erin was a fantastic experience. She was incredibly understanding and available to help consult with the many questions I had as we underwent sleep training for my 5 mo. old. She listened carefully to his history and came back with an incredibly thorough sleep plan for my son, and also provided multiple options for how we can approach sleep training depending on my comfort levels with crying. She was always very responsive and communicative and had so many great ideas and suggestions for how we can make modifications to his sleep schedule. At the end of our engagement, she also provided a list of FAQs that covered a lot of my future questions like what to do when he starts teething or gets sick. Our son went from being incredibly needy for naps and overnight sleep to being able to put himself down and self-soothe. Erin's help was an absolute game changer for our family!

We are deeply grateful for Erin's help with our toddler's sleep journey. Before we started working with Erin, I was dreading the prospect of potentially having several more months go by before we could settle back into a routine with our girlie sleeping in her own bed in her room by herself, as I didn't know how we would make the switch happen. Learning about Erin's services was a godsend. Erin helped us get our girlie back to sleeping comfortably in her own bed, and her guidance throughout this journey was invaluable. From the initial conversation to understand our situation, to coming up with our sleep plan, making sure we were comfortable with it, and to always being there for questions along the way while we implemented the sleep plan. Having Erin's support helped with committing to and sticking with the plan, and it worked out really well. Her feedback along the way was very helpful, provided peace of mind, and I appreciated being able to bounce off ideas or questions. In hindsight, it is amazing how much progress we made in a short time period. Initially, I didn't think that was possible, but here we are! We are finally able to catch back up on sleep and all of us can settle into our sleep rhythms. We would not have been able to get there without Erin's help. I highly recommend working with Erin to support your little one's sleep journey - she is a blessing to work with.

Hiring Erin to help with our son's sleep was one of the best decisions we have made. Our son is 4.5 months old and would not sleep for naps or overnight. We would hold him to sleep and then try to put him down in his crib but he would wake minutes after putting him down. My partner and I were exhausted and losing patience. Erin really took the time to understand our comfort level with sleep training methods and provided us with a sleep plan we knew we could follow through with. Our son is now a great sleeper. He is having longer naps and sleeping longer stretches at night. He is also happier and we are truly becoming well rested, thanks to Erin's support and compassion. She has given me my confidence as a mom, and her experience working with couples in her therapy practice also helped us as my partner and I needed help getting on the same page about sleep training our son. I have recommended her to all of my friends.

Bedtime had been pushed back to 9:30 or later and my kid wasn't falling asleep till 10 or later and a parent had to be in bed with him which of course meant that the parent was also falling asleep. It was not great. So, my husband and I hired a sleep consultant to help us get our 4 year old to sleep at a reasonable time by himself. AND IT WORKED! After we hired Erin, lights out is now by 8:15, and no one has to be in my kid's room. He doesn't even leave his bed, let alone his room. And he stays in his room till 7am! We are now able to go on dates again! IT'S AMAZING. Erin was extremely flexible, not judgemental at all, and so very, very supportive. She helped us think through challenges and develop systems that we could easily maintain. And, helped talk us through the ridiculous situations and behavior my kid threw at us during the process of changing bedtime. Highly recommend her :)

Erin helped my son to transition from a crib to a toddler bed, fall asleep quickly and calmly at bedtime and remain asleep in his room at night. After only 2 weeks, my son has moved from waking multiple times a night crying to sleeping in 9-10 hour chunks which has made such a massive improvement on our family's ability to rest and recharge. I am so grateful for Erin's assistance and expertise and calm, supportive attitude. I would recommend her to anyone who needs sleep support and coaching for their child. Thank you, Erin!
