Christine Lawler

Meet Chrissy: Founder of The Peaceful Sleeper

A licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, lover of sleep, and baby sleep consultant, Chrissy lives in Las Vegas with her four beautiful daughters, who are, thankfully, amazing sleepers.

Chrissy founded The Peaceful Sleeper for 2 main reasons: "I recognize how critically important sleep is in all aspects of life, and I believe that many parents are under-informed or feel unnecessary guilt when it comes to sleep training and sleep coaching your baby.

I’ve been practicing therapy for 9 years now, and I slowly started to realize that sleep issues were a common thread among all of my clients. So I got some additional training in advanced sleep medicine and learned that many of the mental health challenges we (and our children) face today stem from inadequate sleep.

My goal as a baby sleep consultant is to take the stress out of sleep training and get everyone in the family a good night’s rest. I’m here to help you enjoy motherhood–not just endure it!"
