offer consultations with individuals and families seeking guidance in
understanding puzzling behaviors or reactions, lapses in judgement, or
other challenges in reaching one's potential. My consulting
work is focused on helping clients better understand the specific
nature and nuances of particular emotional or communication
difficulties and better appreciate often hidden strengths. We
then work together toward:
possible treatment approaches
more effectively for services or accommodations
parenting skills and working as a parenting team
professional and community resources
a step-by-step action plan
believe that clients with more complex learning or social communication
difficulties can benefit from a team approach.
appropriate, I offer to make referrals to and collaborate with
physicians, neuropsychologists, job coaches, tutors, state agencies,
and nonprofit organizations to create a team of professionals working
together and sharing their expertise.
will also consult and advocate on your behalf with high school or
college counseling, disability, or vocational staff as well as with
interested employers. If we can help foster a realistic understanding
of your learning and social interaction style, then you will be in an
environment in which you can succeed.
