Infant and Child Sleep Coach

Hi! I’m Carin and I’m an Infant and Child Sleep Coach with Tender Transitions.

I’ve lived all over the world but now call Bloomington, MN home. I live with my husband, daughter, Beatrice, and our dog, Harry. I am the Artistic Director of a theater company, a professional bespoke knitter, a tuba player in a brass quintet, and passionate about sleep! (Whew!) I’ve always had a non-traditional schedule, artistic bent, and juggled lots of interests. I also love helping people.

Before Beatrice was born I did lots of research and thought I was fully prepared for every eventuality. When she was born we struggled so hard to do the right things with her sleep, and we had read ALL the books, but it was overwhelming and everything seemed to be contradictory. But the marathon of sleeplessness just went on and on… and it was agonizing. In the moment of each nap and each night-waking, we ended up always trying different things and clinging to what USED to work… it all ended up just digging us deeper into a sleepless hole.

We needed help… we needed a guide.

Enter Tender Transitions. One-on-one coaching that guides every step of the way… it is not hyperbole to say that Leann changed our life, plain and simple. She helped us teach Bea how to fall asleep on her own, and the experience was so inspiring that I knew I wanted to give that same life-changing help to other families.

In 2019, I trained through the Sleep Sense program, as well as working under Leann, to become a Tender Transitions Infant and Child Sleep Coach. Sleep is as important as eating and breathing, and I love helping families give their children the gift of sleep!

“We have a one-year-old boy! He is amazing and we want the best for him. Unfortunately, after getting sick he developed a significant sleep regression. We were lucky enough to have a friend that referred us to Leann, Carin and the Tender Transitions’ team. We had a great experience and we are all now sleeping through the night. We can’t say enough great things about Carin and the plan we received! Thank you again for everything!”

“Our daughter’s ability to learn how to nap in her crib has been a total game-changer in terms of what our days look like. It is so much easier to get little things done. And her nights are also really good. We can think more clearly and are in better moods. We felt like Carin was very understanding and empathetic to our concerns and questions and because of her, We are significantly more well-rested.”
