Overview

I work with individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, as well as their parents. As a caregiver, you may be wondering what you can do to best support your loved one with a disability. Together, we can explore what that feels like and build on skills you may want to hone. I have worked in Applied Behavioral Analysis and special education for over a decade, offering valuable tools to help children thrive. But let's not forget that each individual has a story to tell and a seat at the table.



I am passionate about the crossroads of disability and identity. At what point does compensating for impairment supersede celebrating individuality and diversity? As someone with multiple invisible disabilities, I often struggle with this question. The constant pressure to fit in and hide what makes you different can be truly exhausting. Let's explore your thoughts on all this, build new coping strategies, and grow to a place of acceptance and strength.
