Walk & Talk Therapy
I initially became a Board Certified Coach (BCC) to offer ADHD Coaching. As a School Counselor, I worked with many children, teachers and families to assist with executive functioning weaknesses. I also had experience parenting two of my own children diagnosed with ADHD/ADD.
I understood the struggles that both children and parents face around these issues, and I wanted to help them so they did not have to struggle the way I struggled as a parent.
I have expanded my scope of services to include many areas of life coaching, from emotional coaching to college and career readiness. Regardless of the gender, age or issue, I have found that same principles apply – be authentic, treat people as equals, meet them where they are at, know where they want to go and support them on their journey – whatever that may look like for each individual person.
Helping parents understand the world of 5o4 & Special education
I am well-versed in Section 504 and Special Education Law as it relates to the public, K-12, educational system. I've served as the Lead Education Agency (LEA) Representative at hundreds of IEP meetings, and have coordinated the 504 process for several school districts. In addition, I have extensive training in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).
