An autism mom on a mission to help my son reach his full potential, to find joy in the journey, and to help other parents do the same!

I am the mom to an amazing 14-year-old boy who has autism, apraxia, sensory processing disorder, and a seizure disorder. Over the years, I have tried my share of both traditional and non-traditional interventions for my son, and I want to share what I have learned from those experiences to help other parents.

There are no "one-size-fits-all" answers for our kids, and I believe strongly that parents should be presented with options and be empowered to choose the treatments that resonate for their children. We know our kids better than anyone and should be the leaders of our kids' teams, surrounding ourselves with people who believe in our kids as much as we do and who look at things from a holistic perspective. I would like to help parents be the leaders of their team and not have to feel at the mercy of others who don't know their child the way a parent does.

Through the most challenging times of my son's journey, I have studied how to manage my own attitude so that I can be the most effective advocate and parent for him. I want to pass along some of those attitudes and skills to again help empower parents.

Why Us?

My 14 years of experience as an autism mom helps me understand firsthand the roller coaster of emotions that comes along with this journey. Additionally, my background as a social worker has provided me with strong problem-solving and creative thinking skills, has taught me how to be a strong advocate, and has shown me how to empower others to become their own best experts. I aim to create a non-judgmental space for you to express yourself, ask questions, and brainstorm potential options to meet the current needs of you and your child.
