Childhood is a Transformation. So Too is Parenthood.
(A Little Help Can Go A Long Way)
Supporting Infant Development with Empathy, Evidence, and Experience
Helping our children grow and develop is joyful and fulfilling, but it can also be overwhelming.
As parents we support our children through countless transformations, yet parenthood also changes us profoundly.
Parents are often concerned about sleep, infant and child development, and feeding/mealtimes.
It's OK to ask for help.
Challenges with infant sleep, development, and feeding require a holistic, evidence-based, and compassionate approach that acknowledges a family’s strengths, and a child’s uniqueness. It also requires a biological-, and attachment-based approach that does not force change, but rather encourages small shifts in the environment around a child that create long-lasting, positive changes in child and family development.
I provide assessment, education, and recommendations for supporting sleep, infant development, and eating.
I work with families to identify strengths, needs, and options to create environments that are nurturing and healthy for the whole family.
I value your knowledge, intuition, and vision for your family, your children, and yourself.
You are there for your child. A little help can go a long way.

I have found it is difficult to find professionals who value attachment theory in their clinical practices, so I am eager to spread the word about Heather’s unique approach to families who value authentic connection and evidence-based research. Heather is reflective, articulate, and thorough in her professional approach without sacrificing warmth and relatability.

Heather is fabulous and her information is always totally in line with what we [Attachment Parents] are looking for, and that can be tough to find when looking for support around sleep.
Heather listened to our challenges with incredible compassion. She acknowledged the efforts and progress that we had made which felt very validating. She was knowledgeable about so many topics (sleep, feeding, reflux, available resources, etc.) and was able to suggest several practical strategies to us. We really appreciated the support and reassurance that Heather provided.

Heather's compassionate and knowledgeable approach to infant sleep has had such a positive impact on our family! Heather empowered us to continue to honor our baby's needs through attachment-based parenting, while also balancing our entire family's needs for sleep and self-care. Her unique perspective has had a long-lasting effect for our family and I highly recommend Heather's support to any new parent!
