Finding peace and reclaiming joy.
Sleep Wise is here to coach you through the biggest challenges of this season.
The Family Coaching program is designed to help families function at their best. It’s private coaching for parents in the midst of transitions and unexpected challenges, and for children navigating life’s pressures, stressors, and anxieties. We’re here to guide you through it all, so that you don’t have to exist in survival mode.
Stephanie earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Brown University and a Master’s in Social Work from NYU. Using her clinical training and diverse experience counseling children, adolescents, and adults, she empowers each Sleep Wise family with skills to overcome their unique hurdles.
Stephanie’s therapeutic training includes:
- child development
- healthy attachment
- cognitive behavioral interventions
- family systems
- pediatric & adult sleep
Find your parenting confidence.
Underneath back-to-work stress, diaper-duty arguments, and bedtime struggles, there often lie feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and self-doubt that plague moms and dads.
By working with an experienced family coach, you’ll unpack your unique parenting experiences, beliefs, and desires. As you build inner confidence, you’ll experience transformation from the inside out.
When our kids are struggling, it can leave parents feeling helpless. The pressures of school, activities, and peers can be overwhelming. Stephanie can work with your child to untangle these complex emotions and help your child to thrive.
what to expect
You’ll meet privately with Stephanie to process your parenting journey and create custom solutions to your toughest challenges.
Convenient & Customizable
Meet with Stephanie from the comfort of home with virtual 50-minute sessions. Together, you’ll create a custom coaching schedule that works with your budget, routine, and parenting goals.
We know that nothing’s more important than your role as a parent. Stephanie will teach you practical and evidence-based strategies that you can trust to guide your family forward.
Between sessions, you’ll have tools to track your progress toward your goals, notice and record thoughts and feelings, and practice coping and grounding skills.
Who It’s For
is perfect for:
- new parents navigating life with a baby or heading back to work
- parents navigating tantrums, meltdowns, or other big behaviors in their children
- children struggling with stressors that manifest into difficulty sleeping or connecting with loving caregivers
What You’ll Learn
With 1:1 support from Stephanie, you or your child will develop
skills to thrive emotionally, mentally, and relationally.
Navigating the 4th Trimester
Post-birth healing, sleep disruptions, dramatic hormonal changes, and new family dynamics make the 4th trimester a physically and emotionally taxing season. We’ll help you stay connected to your center (and yourself) in the beautiful chaos of the newborn days.
Find your Calm
Most new moms have a vision of how they want to parent. But stressful situations can trigger even the most experienced parents, causing them to react in ways that don’t align with their parenting goals. You’ll identify your common triggers and learn self-regulation skills to parent from a place of peace.
Support Your Child
You recognize areas that your child may struggle and not know how you can best help them. Your coach can work with your child to create strategies designed to ease their stress and anxiety around certain areas of their life, and strengthen your family bond.
