About me

My life’s journey has been blessed by working with special needs children. Over the past 15 years, I’ve had the privilege to touch the lives of hundreds of children, each with different levels of social, emotional, physical and cognitive challenges. My true passion surrounds working with autistic children. They have been incredible teachers in my life, helping me understand the humanity of my own life. Since obtaining my Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy, I’ve worked both in center-based OT environments and in private homes. I’ve always believed that autism is a puzzle that requires a very diverse and multifaceted approach. Therefore, I’m passionate about learning new approaches and continue to study a wide array of protocols and methodologies including relationship-based interventions, HANDLE, Auditory Integration Therapy, and primitive reflex interventions. I also give workshops, seminars and provide one-to-one coaching for parents and other professionals who are involved in the autism community.

My Philosophy of Care

Relationships are the key to our ability to grow and thrive. Relationship with our selves and our family members are the primary foundation of how we relate to the world. When your relationship with your self and your loved ones is based on trust, nurture and acceptance life works. In my practice I focus on facilitating quality relationships which support the expression of ones life.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

A client will feel heard in their struggles, hear a different, empowering perspective, thus gain a deeper understanding about their challenges and themselves. A client will walk away with tools on how to be with discomfort when it arises an how to shift it.

My Inspiration

I never thought of my self as a healer yet that is the feedback I consistently receive from clients, friends, family. I work with clients the way I do because that is what I needed to heal my own wounds. I am here to partner with my clients and walk them back home as much as they walk me back home. It's a blessing to be able to work this way.
