A Little Bit About
Life has knocked your plans off course and now you're floating in a sea of questions. You want to get back on your feet, dust yourself off, and put some order to the chaos, but where do you start? My areas of specialty - grief, child/adolescent behavior, and special needs - are naturally messy, confusing, and never the same day-to-day. Since you're ready to sort through the feelings and thoughts that come with unpredictability and breathe meaning back into your life,
Some personal tidbits: Though I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, I feel at home here in East Tennessee. Being around plants and animals soothes my heart, and I take any opportunity I get to play with my dogs Mojito and Widget. I have a very eclectic taste in music, and am a mixed-media artist and amateur photographer.
Autism and developmental delays impact the whole family. I work with children ages 3-12 with special needs addressing emotional, behavioral, social, and cognitive issues through a play-based behavioral approach.
Since siblings and parents need support, too, I’m here to listen so we can find solutions that give you room to breathe.
Too many tantrums, repetitive arguments, and big emotions? A spike in worries or sadness? Whatever it is, your child or teen is generally good, but something's up and
they need help.
Through a blend of one-on-one and child-parent work, your house can feel like a home again.

If your organization would like education about or an introduction to a topic related to grief or child development,
I'm available for speaking engagements.
