Autism and developmental delays are tough for the child, friends, and family members. You'll watch your toddler or school-age child gain new skills, manage frustrations, and grow in self-confidence through a fun and challenging 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, you and your child will feel strong and secure in handling tough times.
See which groups and workshops are available, and
give your input on which ones you'd like to see offered.
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.
A Little Bit About
If you've looked around and wondered "Is this really my life right now?" or "How much longer is it going to be like this?" you're in the right place. You want to get back on your feet, dust yourself off, and put some order to the chaos, but it can be hard to know where to start. My areas of specialty - grief, child/adolescent behavior, and special needs - are naturally messy, exhausting, 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.
