Together with my husband, I am the proud mom of two daughters who have reached adulthood. Our family’s journey with autism began when our eldest daughter was diagnosed at the age of 4. Our experience as a family, ignited my passion to help autistic people and their families find a safe place to process their emotions.

The scarcity of resources we encountered inspired me to create a space where you or your family can feel a sense of belonging and hope as you journey towards self-discovery and meet your personal goals. Away from my office, I am often found expressing creativity in my art studio, enjoying nature on foot or by bike or cherishing moments with my family.
