Since 2013, I have worked with families, adolescents, and the LGBTQ+ population, in schools, group homes, outpatient treatment facilities, and in residential settings. It has become a passion of mine to strengthen and empower individuals, families, and couples to deepen relationships and improve communication.
I believe that everyone needs and deserves a safe space to be seen and heard. I’m experienced in neurodiversity, general life coaching, relationship navigation, early marriage, addiction recovery, and parent-child relations and have supported clients with struggles including addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, communication, self-esteem, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and more.
Reaching out for help takes courage and I am inspired by my clients daily. My approach focuses on exploring a client's experience while looking for solutions to immediate challenges. I believe in meeting you where you are, and my job is to partner with you and guide you to the right solution that will elevate your life.
I am honored to be in this profession and want you to know that regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, or socio-economic background, you deserve a voice. Take the first step, I am excited to meet you!
Neurodiverse couples work is similar to any couples therapy, as it involves a therapist and two identified clients who are in some sort of relationship with one another. A neurodiverse coupleship is comprised of one neurotypical partner and one partner who is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Neurodiverse couples work focuses on the unique challenges that neurodiverse couples face, as they seek to gain better understanding of their relationship, preferences and one another.
Like any couples therapy, the goal of neurodiverse couples work may vary based on the desires of the individuals and couples. If your goal is to grow together, couples work may assist you in finding meaning and connection in the little things you share and help you find ways to thrive in a state of connected coupleship long after therapy concludes. Other couples discover their goals may be to move apart and grow individually. In this case, couples work may assist you in making transitions, adapting to your new form of a relationship, and provide you with psychoeducation surrounding grief and change.
