Like the puzzle piece, each person's contribution is unique and important. Looking for answers and learning new skills can not only help us cope with autism, but thrive.
Positive changes can happen. Looking for answers and learning new skills are important steps toward positive change. I can help you and your family with life’s challenges. I believe we all can make positive changes in our lives. We can grow and learn; we just need some help to do so.
I work with individuals and families on a wide range of challenges including:
Does your young child seem aloof to you and others or seem slow to understand speech or to use language? When you call his/her name, does he/she not look at you? Do you think you child may have a developmental delay such as autism or a pervasive developmental disorder (PDD)? Has your pediatrician suggested that you have your child evaluated for a developmental problem?
Does your child have problems socially or have trouble making or keeping friends? Does your child have behavior problems or issues? Does he/she struggle at school or with homework? Is your child temperamental and hard to reach? Are you concerned that your child may have a social developmental disorder such as autism or Asperger syndrome?
Are you worried that your teen may be on the wrong path? Are you worried about the choices your teen is making? Is your teen isolated? Is your teen bullied or teased for being different?
Have you been diagnosed with one of the social developmental disorders such as autism spectrum, Asperger syndrome, attention-deficit (ADHD) or nonverbal learning disorder (NVLD)? Do you feel isolated from your peers or confused when you go out with friends? Do you often feel confused or overwhelmed at work? Are you having trouble coping with life’s changes or demands?
