My name is Melissa Griffing, owner of Rested Roots Sleep Consulting. I am a wife to my wonderful husband and a mom to two amazing and fiery little boys.
As a first time mom, I was pretty lucky. I already had a Master’s in Counseling, specializing in parent training and child therapy. So, right off the bat, I was ready with a set of skills pertaining to children 2.5 and up! However, I quickly realized that I had no idea what to do with a child younger than 2! My first lesson in motherhood: sleep deprivation! I was also simultaneously witnessing parents of children in my therapy practice complain about unhealthy sleep habits. My experience, along with the experiences of the parents I was working with, led me to become a Certified Sleep Sense Consultant.
I am so excited to be offering another piece of the parenting puzzle to help families bring some much-needed rest back into their lives!
