What People Are Saying

"We contacted Beth because of sleep issues with our 4-month-old.  After doing our own reading and research, my husband and I were uncertain which approach was best.  Beth helped us navigate the tremendous amount of (often conflicting) information out there, and developed a simple yet well-considered sleep coaching plan that suited both our daughter and our own needs.  Besides the plan itself, Beth was wonderfully supportive: available, communicative and deeply empathic.  I would definitely recommend Beth to parents for sleep concerns and beyond." --Hannah  

 

 "She is fully awake now when I lay her down for bed. We have progressed from her being fully asleep when I lay her down for bed, (and if she wasn't she would cry her little heart out) to putting her down fully awake, telling her good night as she coos and smiles and rolls over and closes her eyes. It takes an enormous amount of stress off us to be able to do that. Your guidance saved us!! Thank you again for all your help and support!" --Kristina

"The sleep guru of Western Massachusetts (and well beyond), Beth's an utterly amazing, insightful resource..." --Kate

"Beth...your balanced wisdom was a lifesaver in the ocean of panic-inducing, all-or-nothing, and wildly contradictory messages!" - Kathleen and Paul

"So, THANK YOU.  Sleep is improving the nights, which improves the mornings, which improves the good-byes before school, and therefore improves the whole day!" --Lara

"I wish we had met with Beth sooner. I felt like she threw me a lifeline at a time when we as a family were really struggling with sleep. Her flexibility, compassion, and nonjudgmental attitude made it possible to develop a plan that worked for our family. We are all sleeping much better which is such a relief!" --Jane

Her years of work with young children combined with her knowledge of sleep and sleep disorders makes her uniquely qualified to help tired parents and their children find the solutions they need." --Alexandra

*****

"As parents, we often sought Beth’s advice and wise, warm counsel. She knows kids, loves them, and recognizes the range of development and its bumpy, individual, and unique path in each child.  Beth was endlessly patient, upbeat, and reassuring with us despite our protective, nervous, perhaps neurotic worries about our precious daughter!" --Jennifer

*****

"Beth’s great knowledge of sleep issues, combined with her years of experience with children, have made her a crucial support for us. We have relied on her expertise and kind ear many a bleary-eyed time and have always come away feeling educated and affirmed."  --Maggie and Barry

*****

"Beth Haxby was our son's preschool teacher and a profound support system for our family. I feel confident in referring families to her for support and guidance, as she supported us and even helped us with some great strategies for our older son. Her style is warm and touched with good humor and I'd be happy to recommend her to any family seeking her guidance." --Amy

*****

"We recommend Beth very highly. She listened to us and to our son every step of the way and made us all feel that we were working together with her toward our goals. We felt very lucky to have had her. " --Jim and Jackie

*****

"Our daughter loved having Beth as a teacher.  We particularly looked forward to parent teacher meetings because Beth invariably provided us with invaluable and insightful information about our child’s progress. These meetings were a truly creative dialogue between parent and teacher.  Beth always seemed to be someone for whom teaching was a calling and not just a job...Beth has a great capacity to listen, assimilate information, and respond thoughtfully." --Rufus and Reina

*****

"My children were both fortunate enough to have Beth Haxby as their preschool teacher. My older daughter in particular was very shy and had a great deal of separation anxiety. Beth's wonderful, easy going, laid back but commanding approach to my daughter and her classroom was the perfect combination for Sarah to ease her way from home to school. Beth was extremely supportive to me as parent and very loving to Sarah.  By not applying any feeling of pressure, Beth paved the way for a peaceful transition for both parent and child."  --Kate
