Attention Tired Parents
Have you and your family been struggling with any of the following:
You dread naps and bedtime.
You are exhausted and are fighting with your spouse or partner.
You need to rock, bottle or breast feed to sleep and back to sleep and it seems to be taking longer and your child is waking more than ever
It takes hours to get your child to sleep and back to sleep and he/she wakes before 6:00am.
You feel like you spend the entire day trying to get your baby/toddler to sleep.
Your toddler is getting out of bed multiple times at night.
Your toddler stopped napping but still seems exhausted during the day or throwing tantrums.
Your own lack of sleep is affecting your job, your ability to parent well and your outlook on life in general.
You have tried cry it out or other methods that just didn't work.
You feel desperate and don’t know where to turn.
You are an intelligent, loving parent and you don't have the time or energy to weed through a lot of science and theory to get to a sleep solution for your family
You are unclear on how to handle sleep disruption caused by illnesses, travel, and developmental changes.
Welcome to Julie Kennedy Consulting
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Gentle Sleep Coach®.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Washington State University and Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Gonzaga University. I live in Bellevue, Washington with my husband and three boys.
I was just starting my own private practice when my oldest son was 15 months, and I found out I was pregnant with twins! So that was put on hold, and four and a half years later I become a Certified Gentle Sleep Coach, trained by Kim West, LCSW-C (aka “The Sleep Lady®”).
Sleep Coaching Services
If you feel your family’s situation is unique or complex (or you are just plain too tired to see a clear way out) and you wish me to review your history and create an individualized plan with you then an individual coaching plan is the right solution! This is for children 5mos through 6yrs.
During these approximately 30min phone calls I will guide you through a review of your sleep log, recommend possible changes to the initial plan, answer questions that you have and provide additional support that you may need since our last discussion.
For families discussing one child and who wish to receive follow up phone calls for support and future help. This plan is for children 5mos-6yrs old.
What Families Are Saying
I just wanted to tell you that you are amazing. It has only been one week and D has slept through since night 4. Bedtime routine used to take 45 minutes and now it takes 8. I cannot thank you enough for helping us with the tools to get our life back, and our sweet son. He has gone from an over-tired tantrum toddler, to our sweet and funny boy who gives all the snuggles. Thank you sooooooooooooooo much! This was the best money I have ever spent in my life. Thank you!
My partner and I found Julie after interviewing several other sleep consultants. I don’t think we are the typical client for using a sleep professional, in that we didn’t have any huge issues when we started. We were first time parents with a 4 month old and he was just starting to build some consistent sleep habits. Julie helped give us more confidence as new parents and she saved us countless hours by helping us have more consistent naps and all of us having better sleep through the night.
