She may want a night light, sometimes at this age things become scary (dreams feel very real), keep the door open to the bedroom.

A lot of children go through phases like this around this age. In addition to Brittney's suggestions. Just keep it low key when he or she wakes. Assure them, give them a cuddle... but keep it quiet. They tend to do this off and on starting around this age, they briefly wake... it's dark, they're alone; they get scared. So a little reassurance from mom or dad is usually all they need.
