I specialize in psychotherapy for children and adults diagnosed with ASD/Asperger's and children with developmental disabilities and behavioral challenges.
Individuals with neurological differences have unique gifts and challenges. Developmental disorders and early childhood experiences impact the way the brain processes emotions and perceives relationships. These differences can result in unique strengths and perspectives, but also present challenges in navigating family and peer relationships, educational systems, employment, and life skills. If you or someone you care for is diagnosed with autism/Asperger's (ASD), ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD), or another behavioral diagnosis, I am here to help you navigate these challenges.

Asking for help is hard and can be very scary, the fear of judgement, the fear of weakness, the fear of "going crazy". Yet I believe reaching out for help is one of the bravest things anyone can do. I have a passion for working with individuals with trauma. I also have a passion for working with children. It is never too late to start feeling better about being yourself, whether the work starts in childhood or later in life. I want to help people find peace in themselves whether through change or through acceptance.

It's as if you are walking on egg shells every single day. Your child is controlling, bossy, stubborn and strong-willed. You've given up on 'my way or the high way' because the tantrums are just no longer worth it. Your son or daughter has ADHD, Aspergers, or is Gifted. You need help. You are looking for answers and solutions- and need immediate support to get back in charge. Some days it is absolutely exhausting- and other days it is so easy! There's the battles, the refusing to wear certain clothes, picky eating, not doing chores, not listening, not doing homework, acting out and the list goes on.
