Unlike traditional cry-it-out or Ferber-oriented sleep training, this approach (as pioneered by Kim West LCSW-C) gradually scaffolds sleep skills without having to leave them alone to cry. I mean, no one's learning anything when they're hysterical.


A gradual sleep training approach allows you to stay with your child and gradually wean down what you do to help. The process takes everyone's strengths and challenges into account. This is anything BUT "one size fits all." 


  • It's tolerable for both the child and the parent

  • It's do-able. There's no "talking yourself into it."

  • It really works even for bright, intense, persistent kiddos

  • It's customizable to fit your unique family and goals

What is "A Gradual approach to sleep"
and how does it work?

fussy baby

A gradual approach  can really work!

Even when nothing else has....

Please note...

I am currently not taking new clients. HOWEVER, feel free to book a 15-minute phone call! I am happy to chat with you and refer you to my short list of fellow Gentle Sleep Coaches who have done training with me on livewires.

PLEASE NOTE: This is for children 6mos - 5yrs and right now, only in the US/Canada.


Online courses are coming!!!

I'm currently creating short, self-paced courses meant to help walk you through the elements of sleep and where things get sticky with livewires so that you can bust through some of those stubborn issues. A Kickstarter course coming SOON!
