Eileen Henry is a RIE® Associate and one of the first child sleep consultants in the U.S.

She is a pioneer in creating a non industry of what is now called “child sleep consultant “ and she has been helping families, all over the world, for almost 2 decades.

Eileen’s sleep program is unique and will transform your experience not only with sleep but as a parent. Compassionate Sleep Solutions is the only child sleep program based in the science of Attachment Theory and Regulatory Theory. It offers a middle ground in the realistic likelihood that infants and toddlers will express frustration, change and disappointment in their cry.

Every family has different goals in sleep. Eileen’s expertise is in the following:

1. Assessing if your goal is in line with what your child is capable of at this stage of development.
2. Co-creating the optimal physical and emotional environment that promotes peaceful and predictable sleep.
3. Supporting parents in honing their intuition, tuning into their child and deepening family relationships based in respect and authenticity.

“My goal with each family is to create a foundation of wellbeing in the home that fits their own values and desires around this basic act of self love – sleep.” Eileen Henry, RIE Associate and Founder of Compassionate Sleep Solutions.
