Tender Transitions

Sleep Coach in Twin Cities

Serving Parents Worldwide!

You’re feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and discouraged because your child isn’t sleeping.

Being perpetually sleep deprived does not have to be your life.

We’ve got you! And we are here to help.

Work With Us

We’re a team of sleep coaches who help exhausted and overwhelmed parents teach their child to sleep easily and independently. You want your child to sleep better but you don’t know how to make it happen. We’re here for you. We provide compassionate sleep strategies that help the whole family sleep again and get back freedom to do the things you love.

Who We Work With

We work with parents who recognize that their current way of sleeping (or not sleeping) is not working for them. They want to get more sleep for the whole family but they aren’t sure who to listen to or which way to go. They believe that things can be better but are looking for someone to guide them down a path that will be successful and less confusing. Sometimes they find themselves saying, “I just wish someone would tell me what to do!”

We’ll help you whether you have just one child, or many, including multiples! Tell us your worries, your struggles, and hopes for sleep in the future, and we will create a plan just for you to get you there!

What We Do Together

With more than 12 years of collective sleep coaching experience in Minnesota and around the country, we thrive on helping you crack the code to getting your child to sleep.

After we’ve worked our magic together, you will experience:
If you are ready for a clear and detailed, easy-to-follow plan that will teach your child the skills necessary to sleep through the night and have great naps during the day, start with one of our packages below. From there we will help you design the best plan for success!
Our sleep coaching services are most appropriate for newborns to 7 years old.

"Our journey to Leann was long, but after three nights of following Leann's plan we finally all got sleep! We tried sleep training our son on our own and after about a week we realized we needed help. We worked with a sleep consultant based where we live in San Francisco and after working with that sleep consultant for six weeks our son was still waking up several times a night and taking inconsistent naps.
You can imagine why we thought our son was one of those kids that was just a bad sleeper and we would have to accept our new reality.
After three more months of terrible sleep we decided to try another sleep consultant and were recommended to Leann by a friend.
From the moment I spoke with Leann, I felt hopeful.
Within three nights of working with her, our son began to fall asleep on his own, sleep through the night and take consistent naps. Leann thought of everything and made sure that all the people involved in my son's sleep (me, my husband and other caregivers) had the tools to navigate the sleep plan during our time working together and afterwards.
I can't recommend her enough! She truly changed our lives!

"Working with Carin at Tender Transitions was one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents! Our 4-year old now goes to bed regularly at 7:45 and sleeps through the night until wake up time at 7 a.m., something we never thought was possible.
We now have our evenings back and get much better sleep as an entire family!
We had faced years of sleep issues ranging from multiple nightly wakings to not being able to fall asleep without a parent present. We tried every trick in the book, but they never seemed to work. Carin guided us through a program to address all the sleep issues at once in a positive and gentle manner. Our daughter really responded to the program and now looks forward to our nightly routine. I’ve seen her confidence and cooperation grow in our day to day life as a result.
Carin provided clear and consistent direction that helped us know what to do and address issues as they came up. Our only regret is not having worked with Carin earlier!"
