About Me

Hello! I'm Nicole Bullard, a mom of 2, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant.

I received my Master's of Science degree in Counseling and Behavioral Psychology in 2010 and became board certified in Behavior Analysis that same year.  I have worked with families for 20 years and children with autism for 15 years, and it was then when I realized the devastating effects that sleep deprivation can have on children and their families.

My passion for sleep began long before having children, but it wasn't until my daughter was born in 2016 and my son was born in 2019 that I gained some humbling perspective.  If sleep deprivation is affecting your mental and physical health, your relationships, your job and your overall well-being, I have been in your shoes and I am here to help you through it.

Like many other sleep consultants, my children have given me hands-on experience in the world of pediatric sleep and all of its ups and downs.  My background in human behavior and my degree in counseling and behavioral psychology allows for a deeper understanding of all the variables involved, which sets me apart from your typical sleep consultant.  I hope I can support you on your journey to better sleep with a customized plan that works best for your family.

My Philosophy

My sleep plans are tailored to your family's needs and comfort levels.  I personally do not believe a "cry it out" method or extinction is necessary to teach a child to sleep.  I allow parents to choose their approach depending on their comfort level with crying and protest, after I educate them on the various options and the expected duration of each.  

Sleep is essential to all aspects of our physical and mental well-being.  As a parent, our emotional well-being and cognitive function is essential for the health and wellness of our children, and a lack of sleep can jeopardize this.  In addition, I believe that a healthy relationship with sleep can begin in as early as infancy.  When you invest in teaching your child to learn to fall asleep independently, you are giving them a gift of health and happiness that they can carry into adulthood.
