The kind words of others tell the story of their experience.
"We contacted Angela when our family was at a breaking point: each night felt like facing a battle—both exhausting and terrifying. Our 5 month old was waking up three times per night and staying awake for 1-2 hours with each wake-up. Angela’s thorough and detail-oriented but focused intake enabled us the chance to reflect on what we’ve been doing and gain insight into how our behavioral patterns were feeding into our baby’s patterns. Angela took the time to understand our parenting style and our values before compiling a plan that felt comprehensive, concrete, and most of all, feasible! Just having a written plan in black and white was so helpful in the middle of an endless night when minutes feel so long and the fuses are short.
She also had very helpful insight into what we could do during the day to get our daughter to nap better and ultimately to sleep better at night. And her 24-hour schedule was a godsend that really helped our nanny navigate the days. She kept us on the right track by checking in and helping us to navigate unforeseen challenges, including on the weekends.
After a week of following Angela’s plan, our baby was waking up once, napping more consistently, and we felt like tired humans rather than zombies. Thank you, Angela!!!"

"After 11 months of struggling with sleep because of my baby girl (11 months old at the time) waking up 2-3 times a night and co-sleeping with us, I needed help. We reached out to Angela and I told her about our struggle but I didn't want to try the "cry it out" method. She listened to our concerns, worked with us to come up with a plan that worked best for our girl. She made sure we were comfortable with the plan before starting. She offered us a lot of support during the process. And it was magical. It took 3-4 days for our girl to fall to sleep on her own in her own crib and sleep through the night, without "crying at out"!!! I highly recommend Angela to any parents!"

"Angela is totally legit! Our 3 year old son used to take about an hour to put down, and would get so upset if we left the room until he was fast asleep, but with her suggestions of role-playing with stuffed animals and making a specific set of rules for bedtime, within ONE attempt we were able to put him down in about 15minutes. No leaving the room, no crying, and now he demands we remind him the rules of bedtime before going to bed. Absolutely terrific advice for our toddler; it's been months now, and bedtime routines are so easy!"

"Angela supported us with our son's sleep from the time he was 4 months to 7 months, after reading books, working with a postpartum doula, seeking help from our pediatrician, and even trying another consultant. Our son was completely unable to sleep if not held - he was in our arms all night, every night. Angela worked hard to understand what was going on and we never felt judged, only supported. She made sure to understand *our* goals, and made a plan to get there, including multiple modifications to get to the bottom of our son's sleep issues. Infant sleep is not linear and it's not perfect, but our baby is happier, sleeping alone in his crib each night, and most importantly, we have several tools to turn to on the harder nights s he continues to develop and change, as babies do! One of the most valuable things about working with Angela is that she really supported me emotionally, and I felt I could be vulnerable around my fears and worries. It wasn't "all business". I would recommend her to any parent!"
