Hi, I’m Carrie! My husband and I, along with our three boys live in Centennial, Colorado. My journey into Sleep Consulting started in the summer of 2018. I found myself in the most stressful and lonely place I’d been in my entire life. I woke up each morning feeling anxious about what lay ahead of me. I dreaded nap time and bedtime. Exhausted and frustrated, I was not capable of being the mother, wife or person I truly was. I was desperate and knew I couldn’t go on like that.
We had been trying everything we could think of to get our youngest to sleep: rocking and patting, attempting to prop up the pacifier so it wouldn't fall out, purchasing every type of swaddle blanket, hovering by his room hoping to catch him at the perfect moment after a short nap to help him back to sleep. Some nights we even resorted to holding him. All. Night. Long. None of this worked! We needed help. This is when I found Sleep Sense.
The first thing I learned was that you have to teach your baby to sleep! Who knew? Our little guy was doing his best, but he just didn’t have the skills he needed to put himself to sleep. After implementing the methods of Sleep Sense he was sleeping through the night in a few short DAYS. He started taking great naps as well. It was the biggest relief I’d ever felt.
This personal victory led me on a journey to become a Certified Sleep Consultant. I have completed an extensive training program under Dana Obleman, founder of Sleep Sense. My desire is to support families who are ready to make a change to their child's sleep habits. There is a misconception out there that when you have young kids you will always be tired. On the contrary, I believe that you can make sleep a priority and your entire family will reap the benefits!
Almost four years into this career, I can tell you that I absolutely love what I do! I get the privilege of coming alongside incredible families who only want the best for their children. I get to teach them, guide them and cheer them on as they work with their children in an incredibly life-changing way.
If you have found yourself in that desperate place where you need someone to come alongside you so that your family can thrive, I would be honored to meet you. My desire is for each member of your family to feel restored each morning when they wake after a good night of sleep.
If you'd like to chat more, I'd love to meet you!
