I have extensive involvement with children/youth with Autism.
All of our children are so very unique and constantly changing. Sometimes they need a helping hand to keep them moving along to thrive in their relationships and connections with others; or to develop strategies to support emotional regulation, social skills, life skills, anxiety reduction, concentration and focus, or processing of traumatic events. Throughout the process, parent/caregiver participation is a key component when it comes to working with children. My long-standing experience with neurodiverse children, youth, and their families will provide you with the reassurance you need to move forward.

"How can I help them?", "What do I do?" These are the thoughts that keep you up at night. Parenting is not easy! Right now you may be in uncharted waters from a new diagnosis, or today may have been a hard day working through meltdowns. The behaviour challenges are becoming too much. You are looking for a professional who can help you understand why the behaviours are happening, how to change it, and teach them new skills. As a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst, my team and I have helped many children and adolescents with autism and other diagnoses develop the skills they need to help them thrive.

Grief happens when we experience any significant loss or change; leaving an irreparable void in our lives. Many people think it's the loss itself that's the heaviest, yet everything that happens afterward can be the hardest to deal with. Life after a loss feels chaotic and strange. Everything has changed and it can be hard to find your feet again. Children & youth now have to work through all of these new & intense thoughts and feelings, without the language and tools that adults have. In times of grief, children & youth will benefit from a safe space to learn about their grief and how to live a healthier life with it by their side.
