Hey there, I'm Crystal!

I'm a certified pediatric sleep consultant and the owner and founder of Rest Within Reach. With a background enriched by 13 years in education, a former nanny and the firsthand experience of being a mom, I understand the many challenges that come with becoming parents for the first time and bringing home a new baby.

The sleepless nights, the endless soothing attempts, the short naps, the constant rocking-I've been there. I get it.

It's this personal experience that fuels my passion to help parents like you navigate the often challenging path to peaceful nights. I bring a blend of professional expertise and empathetic understanding to the table. It gives me immense joy to empower parents with the tools and guidance they need to help their littles become independent sleepers so that everyone can get the rest they deserve.

"Crystal was amazing to work with! We are still in touch because she is so personable and easy to talk to. When it came to sleep training I was not feeling very confident. I was in the middle of the horrible 4 month sleep regression (which came early for my son), and wasn’t sure it was the right thing to do. Once speaking to Crystal I had the confidence to move forward. She listened to my concerns and really made the plan tailored perfectly for my son."

My own journey...

Everything began with my own sleep trials and triumphs. I've also walked that sleep-deprived path. My first kiddo, while I would describe her now as an "easy baby", well toddler, she was a challenge in the early months. Not only did we have a traumatic birth with her, she wouldn't latch so that made nursing a challenge followed by a tongue tie that lead to an exclusively pumping breastfeeding journey. Coupled with the fact that I had no support for the greater part of the day nor family living close by. Needless to say, I was not only still recovering but I was extremely exhausted, mildly depressed and physically and mentally drained.

Sleep became this elusive thing we chased like a treasure hunt, with nights filled with never ending wake-ups and sleepless marathons. I've been in your tired shoes, and I'm here to share not just professional advice but the genuine understanding of the sleep rollercoaster. That challenging experience fueled my passion to help parents like you navigate through the twists and turns of baby and toddler sleep.

So what do you say? Let's tackle those sleep hurdles together and turn your nights from chaotic to calm.

"We reached my goals completely in only 3 days!

I am so glad that I had Crystal to help me through this process and get my son sleeping *like a baby*! Highly recommend!!"
