I offer consultations to families in the Bay Area and (by phone or Skype) in the U.S. and internationally. You can contact me at
Here's my background:
I see families in my private practice for individualized consultations. Some parents think of me as an infant sleep consultant, a breastfeeding specialist, a toilet training guru, or a parent coach. All of those descriptions are true, and I do a lot more!
Over the years I have worked in many settings. I have led parent groups, consulted with schools, and trained other professionals-teachers, social workers, pediatricians and nurse practitioners- in audiences large and small. I’ve written four books for parents and write monthly columns for Parents’ Press, a publication for parents in the Bay Area. I’ve been a radio columnist and a media commentator.
When my children were young I had days when I was “at home” and days when I “worked” and many days when I did both, giving me a understanding of parents who are in each of these roles. Parents know that when they come to consult with me about any issue related to their child that they will be talking to someone who understands them and will support them with the kind of insight that comes from years of experience and training.

I also offer SLEEP CONSULTATIONS to families in person, by telephone, or Skype.
