I am a psychologist with extensive experience in autism in children and adults, as well as possible accompanying conditions.
Parent Coaching: As a parent coach, I can work with you to accomplish your parenting goals, which can include taking better care of yourself, maintaining your health and well-being, staying more connected to your partner, acting more consistent with your parenting values, maintaining your own identity, dealing with uncertainty and anxiety, or anything else that you want to focus on. I can also help you figure out parenting strategies that work for your child, considering his or her specific challenges and can help find solutions to your parenting dilemmas. I work well with both neurotypical and neurodivergent parents of neurodivergent children. I offer a package for parents of newly diagnosed children and a number of other packages.
Life Coaching: As a life coach, I work with neurodivergent individuals who want to use a systematic, structured, consistent, non-judgemental and supportive coaching approach to make progress in reaching personal or professional goals. Whatever your goals are, we define the outcomes you want, the obstacles in your way, the strategies for overcoming these obstacles and the strengths you can use to get there. We systematically and gradually work to use your strengths, implement those strategies, evaluate results, and keep moving forward with focus.
Clinical/Educational Consulting for Children: I offer clinical consultation on your child's educational and private therapeutic programming. I start with a conversation with you about your concerns and priorities and then a detailed review of your child's records and any other information, such as video clips, that you want to share. I will touch base with your child's private providers if needed, with your explicit permission. Based on this information, I provide detailed and specific guidance and explanation of changes needed in your child's program in order to address your concerns, as well as steps you need to take in order to make these changes a reality. In the US, I also offer guidance through navigating the special education system based on my many years of experience as a special education advocate.
I offer a free 30-minute consultation for all my clients.
