About

Do you suspect that you or a loved one is on the autism spectrum? I can help you in exploring this question and considering its personal, vocational, and family implications. I specialize in working with older adults who are diagnosed or seek diagnosis. I also work with teens and children/families. I can help communication between autistics and "neuro-typicals." I am active in an adult autistic peer support network and can help you connect with other autistics for support if you wish to do so.
I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder 5 years ago [in my 60's] and have become active in experiencing these issues myself. I am co-author of the book: Older Autistic Adults: The Lost Generation to be published by AAPC. I have training in working with neuro-diverse couples and families -- facilitating understanding and communication.
I strive to be myself and work from my heart. My approach is to help you find your inner being and express it in the world. My therapy approaches include art, music, crafts, drama, pet therapy, etc. -- however you are most comfortable communicating. Sharing yourself in therapy does not need to be limited to words.
