About me

Hi! I'm Naré Panossian and I am a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant and a practicing Physician Assistant. It is my passion to bridge my medical knowledge with helping families teach their children independent sleeping skills. I have 3 little ones myself that I have sleep trained and I know just how difficult it can be as a parent constantly feeling exhausted. My main goal is to help provide the entire family with the rest they need and deserve! I do this by using gentle techniques that is customized to each family's specific needs. I work with families that have newborns up until 11 years old. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or to set up a free sleep evaluation. Looking forward to working with your family soon :)

Service introduction

When families choose to work with me, they are putting trust in me with their child’s sleep and well-being and I take this responsibility VERY seriously. As a parent, you also need to be comfortable with your new sleep plan in order for it to work for your child and family. My approach to improving your child’s sleep is pretty simple: 1) Safety: With my medical background, I always stay up to date on the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for sleep to ensure your child’s sleep plan is best yet safe for your child. 2) Honesty: I will always give you honest information regarding your child’s sleep and needs-this will give you all the motivation needed to make changes to your child’s sleep habits. 3) Easy Plan: I will lay out an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan that lets you make some choices about what is the right approach for your child. (Being a mom of 3, I know very well that each child is unique, and nobody knows your child better than you do, which is why I will listen and get you involved in the decision-making process.) 4) Accommodating: I know all too well that life happens and can become unpredictable with kids. That is why my sleep plans are accommodating to each family’s unique situation and different parenting styles. 5) I will show you how to measure success: No, you shouldn’t expect your child to sleep 12 uninterrupted hours on the first night (although it does happen!) I will tell you what you should expect along the way.
