My Approach to Helping
I have worked with children and teen on the Autism Spectrum since 2011 in community, home, and school settings. I work to develop plans to increase quality of life, independence and socially appropriate behaviors. I work with both the individual and the family to create a life that has less stress and more joy. I create Functional Behavior Assessement and Positive Behavior Plans to increase positive behaviors and decrease negative behaviors for individuals on the spectrum.
More Info About My Practice
I have extensive experience in communicating with school systems on creating and maintaining quality IEP (individual Education Plans). I currently do not work out of an office and meeting clients and families in their homes and in the community. My work is both with the individual and family to create a plan that works.
My Therapy Focus
My focus is to increase quality of life and independence for client's and their families. I merge both person centered therapy and behavioral techniques to build relationship and mutual respect as the foundation for creating change and a more peaceful and fulfilling life.
