Hi! I’m Patty! I have a passion for helping people and love children. If you are reading this, I am guessing you are a new parent having difficulty at nighttime with your little one. As mother of three, with a degree in Psychology, I have the practical experience and the education to help you develop the perfect sleep training approach for your baby, assuring a well-slept, happy baby and family.
A little more about me…
I was born in Rochester, Michigan. My twin brother, Peter, and I were the last set of twins born to my mother, who had THREE SETS OF TWINS! (Wow!! My mom was and still is a Superstar)! In fact, one of my siblings is the Red Wings’ own Karen Newman and she’s a twin, too! (See Karen’s Testimonial about how I helped her and her twins!) As you can imagine, it was a loud and raucous household, but my mom knew how to manage it and getting us all to stick to a regular sleep schedule was key. Both personal experience and my mom have been an invaluable resource to me.
At U of M I studied Psychology and focused on Child Development. Soon after, I had my first son, Jordan, and began my ‘real world’ training. The hands-on experience was quite a bit different than the classroom instruction. In all, I have three children. My siblings, with whom I am very close, had another 15!
I am currently finishing my Masters in Counseling, raising my children and helping out with my nieces and nephews as well. In today’s busy world, it takes an entire family working together to raise a happy baby, and a healthy, well-slept family makes it all so much easier! I truly believe that a well-rested family is a happy family. To that end, I would love to help you guide your baby to learning the best way to get a full night of peaceful sleep every night. Combining the latest research and techniques, my experiences as a mom and my personal background, I will help you get the sleep you need and deserve!
