About Steph

Born and raised in Montreal, Steph (she/her) currently resides in Toronto with her husband and two daughters. After the birth of her first child, Steph noticed a lack of postpartum support for parents, as well as a lack of sleep support options that did not include cry-it-out. Fighting against the conventional behavioural "sleep training" model, Steph pursued her trainings in the sleep field and created Sleep Parenting, a community and philosophy, focused on the developmental and emotional needs of children, as well as the role attachment plays with sleep. A lifelong learner, Steph is completing ongoing studies with the Neufeld Institute in Vancouver, Canada. She pinches herself every day that she found her passion in life.

My passion is empowering parents to trust their instincts.

As an advocate for infant emotional health, I can ensure your child’s development is the primary focus, as well as making sure everyone is getting the sleep they need!

Love from families I've helped...

Steph and her Sleep Parenting program has completely changed my life.

I went from living in a constant state of anxiety, anger, fear and tiredness, to feeling competent, rested and empowered. Sleep was the one area of parenting that we just had no idea how to handle. I hadn't felt like myself in months and felt like my sanity, life and relationships were spiralling out of control and that I was getting further and further away from ever getting it all back.

And then Steph happened! The opening online questions of the program only made me more confident that we needed this program in a bad way and I am so glad we took the plunge. 

The knowledge we gained on how to parent through the ups and downs of sleep and seeing the progress our daughter has made in becoming an AMAZING sleeper is quite honestly priceless. Restful nights, happy baby, predictable days/nights, improved relationship with partner, family and friends,  all of this plus more is what I've gained from this program.

I have and will continue to recommend this program to others because I believe this is the best program out there that accommodates each individual families goals and parenting style.

I will not forget how I felt at the beginning and how far I (we) have come because of this program and because of this I will be forever grateful!


(Eberle's mom)

Steph is a miracle worker and changed our lives completely.

I was amazed by how quickly we saw results. Our lives revolved around trying to get my son to sleep prior to this program. It was stressful and exhausting for us. We truly didn’t feel anything could possibly help our son sleep well as other programs had failed.

With Steph’s help, my son quickly went from being parented to sleep and sleeping in our arms; to sleeping independently in his crib. We couldn’t believe it!!  Our son is a happy and well rested baby and we are able to function better because we are able to rest ourselves.

It was extremely important to us to avoid any cry it out sleep training tactics as it didn’t suit our parenting style. With this program it is completely tailored to your individual goals, parenting style and babies temperament. This helps make the transition to better sleep stress free and something we could feel good about.

Throughout the program we were provided with ongoing support from Steph who is extremely knowledgeable, empathetic and non judgmental in her approach. The knowledge and tools we gained from this program will help us through our ongoing sleep journey with our child. We are better equipped to help ensure he is getting the best quality and quantity of sleep he needs as he grows.

We can’t thank Steph and her team enough for everything they have done for us. They truly have changed our lives completely for the best.

Thank you Steph!!


(Connor's mom)

Our daughter's sleep was a mess. No one in our family was sleeping, but we were not desperate enough to let her cry it out. We just knew that it wouldn’t work for us or for her based on our personalities.

Then we met with Steph - and thank goodness we did!

We were able to develop a plan that was specifically adapted for our baby, her needs, and our family as a whole. Soon after our meeting, our bedtime routine moved to a consistent 30 minutes (including nursing!!), and she was falling asleep independently. Shortly thereafter, we were able to put her down for naps – in her crib!!

Steph offered so much support throughout the program that we were able to hit all of our goals, and then some, before the end of our work together.

With Steph and her Sleep Parenting program, not only did we gain essential knowledge about babies’ sleep patterns, needs, and ways of communication, but we gained confidence in our own abilities and instincts.

We know our baby, we know what she needs, and we know what to do to help. Yes, she sleeps and naps so much better, but this program has given us much more than that. We know that when she doesn’t fall asleep like her regular self, something else is up and we can go back to the basics and help her once again.This isn’t going backwards, this is moving through her needs, and it is totally okay.

Everything is okay. Actually, everything is perfect – so imperfectly perfect.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
