Give you and your child the gift of a restful sleep

Hi, I'm Sarah

Sarah and Maya happy

I am a Registered Occupational Therapist & Holistic Sleep Coach. Supporting children and their families is my biggest passion.

After graduating university as an Occupational Therapist (OT) in Germany, I spent four wonderful years in Mexico, where I founded the first occupational therapy clinic for children with special needs in Merida, Yucatan.

In 2011 I moved to Vancouver, Canada.  I worked in a pediatric OT clinic and in the Early Intervention Therapy program at a Child Development Centre for many years.

During my practice in Germany, Austria, USA, Mexico and Canada, I have learned the importance of taking each family’s culture, strengths and resources into account.

In 2018, I completed the Holistic Sleep Coaching Program in England and founded Holistic Sleep Solutions“. I combine my extensive knowledge and expertise as an OT with my knowledge and passion about sleep, to provide holistic support to children aged 2-6 who are struggling with sleep.

I am also the CEO and founder of “Real World Kids OT“, a mobile OT clinic with a visionary concept to bring Occupational Therapy into “real life”.
