Work With Me - Coaching/Services
What if you could finally start trusting your mama instincts (and your baby), without worrying that you are somehow doing things wrong,
so that you can finally start enjoying your baby and your motherhood.
I offer support virtually worldwide.
Using a holistic approach to sleep, I will teach you how to connect with your baby on a deeper level and how to reinforce important feelings of safety and security so that, when developmentally ready, your baby will be prepared to fall asleep and stay asleep…. All while using an attachment focus and responsive, supportive parenting strategies. You do not need to use sleep training to improve your baby’s sleep.
Stop the comparison game and start feeling confident in your baby’s development. I support you with making tummy time fun, while also supporting other developmental milestones like rolling, crawling, standing, and walking. I can also help with intro to solids and the sensory and oral motor skills needed for that.
We all have tongue and lip frenums (sometimes called frenulum) which are essentially the tissues that attach our tongue to the floor of the mouth (lingual frenum) and lips to the gums (labial frenum). Sometimes babies are born with significant restrictions in these tissues that affect the movement and therefore the function of the tongue, lips, and sometimes cheeks. Collectively these oral restrictions are known as tethered oral tissues (TOTs). These can affect your baby’s ability to feed at the breast/bottle, eat solids, speech production, sleep, and can even be associated with torticollis and head shape.
I can help you understand the ins and outs of TOTs and will come by your side through the entire journey (whether you decide to release the tissue or not). I help with pre & post release bodywork and oral motor activities to re-train those tissues.
Baby reflux is common, but it is not normal. And you don’t have to wait for your little one to outgrow it or have them on medications for months and months. There is a better way…. one that addresses the underlying cause(s) to your baby’s discomfort, so that they (& you) can get some relief.
Sensory processing underlies our daily functioning. Everything from sleep to eating, to moving, and playing. I will help you figure out if your baby or toddler has sensory processing differences and provide you with recommendations to set you both up for future success.
Primitive reflexes develop before or shortly after birth, within the first year, to equip baby with automatic movements, which will help them with survival in the first few weeks and months of life. Babies are meant ‘integrate’ (or move past/through) these so that they can consciously control of their movements. Sometimes reflexes fail to develop or fail to be “integrated” (meaning the reflex is still active), which can lead to an immature nervous system and a number of things could be affected in terms of the child’s functioning and/or behaviour.
Craniosacral therapy is a non-invasive, hands-on technique that uses a very light touch, 5 gms of pressure to be exact. It can be used as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with other modalities, and can help relieve gas, torticollis, body tightness, head moulding, feeding issues, improve sleep, and so much more. I truly believe that every single baby (and mama) should get at least 1-3 craniosacral therapy treatment(s) after birth. The ideal time is within the first few days/weeks, but really it is never too late.
Imagine if you could support your family’s health and wellness without even leaving your home. Better sleep, better digestion, better overall regulation and vagal tone function. Improved mood, more energy, reduced pain or discomfort. No more feeling disconnected, beating yourself up (mom guilt is real!), or feeling so exhausted you can barely function. Frequency therapy is the ultimate bio-hack for breaking through life’s challenges – for yourself and all members (even the fur babies) of your family. You can facilitate your own transformation and empowerment anytime and anywhere. I can help! I offer this support through distance healing (aka sending frequencies to you and your family…yes, even across the globe). Once you see the benefit of this device, chances are you will want one for yourself.

Clarity ConsultOne-Off Assessment
Comprehensive Intake review
60 min call to ask me questions, review areas of concerns
Any handouts, resources that will support you
Stop Googling at all hours of the night, scrolling for answers, and ask me instead!
Think of this as a power hour jam packed session where you will have my undivided attention and support for 60 minutes.
You will leave feeling reassured and confident about the right way forward for you and your family.
You will complete an intake form for me before our session so that I can understand a bit more about your situation. Then, during our time together you can ask me all the questions we can fit into 60 minutes. I can offer my insights, brief assessment of your situation, and answer your questions.
This is for any parent who just needs a little more clarity, and perhaps a confidence boost that you are on the right track. It’s perfect for someone who might not need a ton of troubleshooting but would like to know that they are on the right track in navigating their child’s sleep.
The Comprehensive Confidence Package is perfect for you if:
- You have a complex situation or more than one thing you want to change – you are worried about their sleep, development, reflux, or sensory processing and you find your situation stressful or unsustainable
- You want better sleep, easier feeding, more confidence, better regulation (in the case of sensory processing differences), BUT also want to be respectful, responsive and supporting, even if it takes longer
- You’re overwhelmed, don’t know what to do. You want someone to be by yourself guiding you and checking in.
- You are ready and want to make a change (and are ready to put in the work and time to do this)

Does this sound like you?
What if I told you there was a better way?

Kind words from other mamas
I had several 'aha' moments that left me feeling more confident in how to approach solids with my baby. She provides valuable information and numerous practical tips that you can start using right away. Highly recommend!
She provided us with practical solutions to help support our daughters and always made sure we were comfortable with the plan and strategies.
We appreciate Kaili's flexibility and holistic approach. She made us feel heard, understood, and gave us the tools and encouragement to experience progress and success.
Working with Kaili made me realize that this is totally okay and encouraged! She helped us go from nursing every hour at night to sleeping 6-hour stretches.
As a first time mom (& fellow OT!) I thought so much of motherhood would come naturally & I would simply figure it out along the way. HA! I was in for a big surprise!
Thank you for giving me some tools to really enjoy motherhood. Your work is so empowering and appreciated.
Hi there, I'm Kaili!
Your holistic baby guru.
Thanks for checking out my corner of the internet where I support mamas all over the world in understanding what might be going on with their baby, while helping them tune into (and trust) their mama instincts.
I have a passion for normalizing and bringing clarity around baby sleep, development, reflux, and more. I am a wife and mama of two, and I fully understand the importance of trusting yourself. I am on a mission to help you tune into your intuition and feel like the confident super mom you are!
I like to think of myself as an approachable authority on all things baby-related, as I provide down-to-earth advice that makes everyone feel like they can do this parenting thing!
frequently asked questions
You've got Q's? I've got A's.
Once you’ve hired Kaili, you will receive an intake form and pertinent questionnaires to complete. The sleep support requires you to complete a 5-day sleep log (just once, I promise).
Then, you will schedule your initial consultation which is completed over video (through a client management system called Practice Better) to discuss your current situation in detail, your current concerns regarding your child, as well as your goals for our work together.
Kaili will discuss her analysis and recommendations and together you will make a plan for your family that takes into consideration your values and needs.
Kaili will then provide you with a comprehensive write up of those recommendations, and strategies, which will give you a clear plan of action to follow.
You will have the opportunity to be in regular contact with Kaili throughout your contracted package. Kaili will provide support, advice, and accountability as you work towards putting the strategies in place and establishing new habits for your child and your family.
For virtual support, I generally require you to purchase a package first (especially for sleep, reflux, and sensory processing support), since these are a little more involved and you will appreciate the in-depth analysis that I provide (and write up for you).
After this initial package, you will have the ability to book me for 30/60 minute one-off sessions as needed.
If you are coming to see me in-person, these are booked and charged per session.
My rates are $150 (60-min) and $100 (30-min)
If you are living in Ontario and are looking for more theraueptic support, which might be covered under extended health insurance, then please check out my clinical website here – www.theholisticot.ca.
Feel free to book a complimentary 15-min Right-Fit Call to get all your questions answered and to see if we are a good fit for working together. This call will NOT be a consultation call, but I am happy to answer questions about my practice and how I can help you and your family. You can book the Right-Fit Call using the button below or email me at email@example.com with “1:1 Support” in the subject line.
Gently encouraging a baby to sleep better will take a different amount of time for every baby. Unlike more aggressive sleep training methods, I can’t promise you when it will get better. But I can promise you that it will get better. With these responsive, science-based strategies you’ll get more rest soon, and when you do, you’ll rest easy knowing you stayed true to your values the whole way.
Remember – sleep training might seem faster and easier, but that doesn’t equal better results. Sleep training often has to be redone as babies grow, and it can cause a huge amount of stress for babies and families. These holistic, attachment-based methods set you up for real, lasting better sleep. You’ll build a foundation of connection that will pay off a thousand times throughout your baby’s childhood. Faster doesn’t mean better!
This is a tricky question. Babies cry – that is how they communicate with us initially. They cry because they are tired, hungry, uncomfortable, cold, wet, frustrated, and so many other reasons. So while I can’t promise there won’t ever be any crying, I will promise you that I’ll never tell you to leave your baby alone to cry, or tell you that ‘crying helps them figure it out’, or ‘teaches them to be independent’, not for a second.
I can’t promise that you won’t cry though – that first night of real rest can definitely bring tears of relief!
A lot can be done virtually over a video call! Think about how amazing FaceTime is to connect with loved ones and let them see how your little one is growing and developing.
With a video call I just need you to set up your smartphone, an ipad, or even your laptop screen somewhere so that I can see the whole room, or just your baby, and how they are moving (or eating), depending on what kind of support you are looking for.
Then I will offer in the moment feedback, guidance on how to facilitate movements, or suggestions on how to offer a pre-loaded spoon or even a new texture.
It’s as if I am in the room with you, I just can’t actually snuggle your baby (though believe me, I am feeling all the feels!)
Our modern day technology runs on frequencies:
- When you change the station, you change the frequency
- The ability to use your cell phone to make a phone call or search the internet – again, uses frequencies
- Your car fob that unlocks and starts your car from a distance – yup, frequencies
- Various medical devices and equipment used in hospitals also use frequencies.
Distance healing is an incredible modality that has been around for centuries and is becoming increasingly popular.
It is very similar to using prayer and visualization to send healing energy to those who are ill.
I use a small frequency device called Healy, that uses magnetic frequencies to harmonize your bioenergetic field, to bring your body back into resonance so that it can do its amazing job of healing itself – body, mind, and spirit.
One of the beautiful options with this device is that with a quantum sensor it can tap into the bioenergetic field of any living being, with some specific information such as your name, date and place of birth. I can either do a scan to determine the specific programs your body needs to get back into alignment or I can vibrate (send) specific frequency programs to you and your bioenergetic field based on your needs.
My Approach To Coaching
My role is to be by your side, like a good friend, therapist, and mentor, as you navigate the wild ride of motherhood in the first few years.
My approach is evidence informed, developmentally appropriate, attachment-focused, as we dive into your questions and concerns around developmental milestones, sleep, reflux, feeding/solids, sensory processing, and more.
I guide you, but also empower you to lean in & trust your mama instincts. To tune into the baby you have in front of you, tune into what resonates w/ you & your family, what feels right a light in your heart. Tuning in so that you can start to tune out all the unsolicited advice from well meaning family, friends, social media, and yes even sometimes that of your doctor.
If you've still got questions for us or want to chat, please email us anytime! We'd love the chance to chat further, no pressure, we promise.
