About

My mission is to help children on the spectrum build meaningful, natural connections with their families and communities. Through these connections, children can achieve greater growth, independence, and joy. Families also benefit from greater confidence, and are empowered to help their child achieve lasting developmental improvements. Through the powerful positive therapeutic relationship, your child will achieve holistic developmental gains so that they can lead their best life.
As an Expert DIR® provider and Training Leader, I utilize developmental intervention to foster individuals' social and emotional growth. Some specific areas of focus are regulation, social engagement, flexibility, and anxiety reduction.
I am the lead author of “An Evaluation of a Developmental Individual-differences Relationship-based (DIR®) Creative Arts Therapies Program for Children with Autism.” Formerly a faculty member at Daemen College, currently I lecture at Caldwell, am a PEERS Certified Provider, and am a Lead Licensed Professional Counselor with Positive Development.
