Meet Beth

 

I have loved caring for other people’s babies since I was in middle school and was trusted with both toddlers and newborns from a young age. I have my bachelor's degree in human biology from Biola University, I taught in Irvine Unified School District in Southern California as a middle school science & health teacher for three years, and then I became a mommy and I have been home with my babies since then. I was born and raised a California girl until we moved our family to the Kansas City area in December of 2019. As a mommy to three little ones, ages 3 years, almost 2 years, and 3 months, my time is spent at parks, play dates, Target, & Chick-fil-A.

 

As a certified sleep consultant, I will be the middle ground between the advice of your pediatrician and mommy friends since my background in science, experience as a classroom teacher, current mommy life, and specialty maternity/infant/child sleep education has given me the perfect blend of experiences to be able to sympathize with your difficulties and offer proven strategies to guide your family through and past this. My approach is team-led, meaning that I support the parents and child equally in the process of improving sleep. I NEVER recommend cry-it-out, but use a holistic method that uses all we know about our little ones' brains and bodies to naturally achieve improved sleep.

 

I am a natural reader and researcher, so when my own babies were born I read about popular sleep methods and combined those tools with my own understanding of the human body and brain to meet all of my babies’ physical, sensory, mental, and emotional needs to set them up for quality sleep. Becoming accredited by the International Parenting and Health Institute in the Holistic Science of Sleep Method was a perfect fit for me because this method allows me to find the root of the problems that are causing the sleep disruptions, mend those, and use minimal behavioral tools to achieve naturally full, restful nights of sleep and quality naps for infants and toddlers. 

 

What this means for you is that I use holistic, science-based, proven techniques with minimal to zero tears to meet the sleep needs of your entire family.

FAQ

What sleep training methods does Beth use? Holistic and integrative sleep optimizing. I believe that many times, disrupted sleep behavior is pointing to an underlying need of the brain or body of your little one. I believe that your baby or toddler's body wants to sleep, but there are things getting in the way preventing quality sleep. I spend the first two weeks of our time together making every effort to optimize sleep naturally without sleep training. I do not assume that sleep challenges are always a behavioral issue to be resolved by training. If after at least two weeks of working together, you desire further improvements and I agree in my professional opinion that there is a behavioral component at play, then I may make recommendations of developmentally appropriate customized sleep training methods that fit your expressed preferences. I am trained in nearly all sleep training methods, am equipped to guide you with customization made for your child, and will walk through the process with you. However, there are many cases where sleep training is not needed, and my expertise is in finding the root of sleep issues to resolve them without any sleep training! consulting with Beth look like? I utilize an integrative and holistic approach to uncover the root issue behind disrupted sleep and offer natural strategies within your parenting style to improve sleep for your family. I do not offer quick fixes or a one-size-fits-all program, but one that is science-based and long-lasting. Every support package begins with a thorough intake process in which I learn about your entire family dynamic and child. You select the time frame for which you would like support, and I walk with you in parenting (with an emphasis on improving sleep!) for that time. Two initial consultation sessions, daily emails, weekly phone calls, a customized written sleep plan, and emailed written notes following each of our conversations will equip and support you toward success in meeting your goals!

 

We co-sleep and would like to continue. Can Beth still help? Whether you are a proponent of bed-sharing, room-sharing, or independent sleep, I can help you improve your sleep! I will not be asking you to stop bed-sharing if that is what you want to do. I want you to reach your goals for what is best for your family!

We still nurse at night and are not ready to give that up. Can sleep still be improved? Absolutely! I will not be asking you to stop feeding your baby overnight. Many healthy babies are not ready to night-wean until after 12 months of age (or later!), but that does not mean that frequent or lengthy night wakings need to happen!
