Therapeutic Learning Support for Neurodivergent Clients
The academic pressures and expectations for students who are also bombarded with the distractions of social media and technology can be daunting, both for the student and the caregivers. It can feel overwhelming and deeply draining. This is true for all ages, from elementary to adults learners returning to a (sometimes virtual) classroom.
I come from an extended family that has had its fair share of learning differences and attention issues, so I'm more familiar with some of the realities of how this can look at home and I have been told I have an unusual amount of patience, even for someone who works in mental health. I come from a place of no judgement, and I find it easy to see the strengths and interests that can be highlighted to help balance out and work on the challenges.

I also bring my experience teaching in after school and daytime classrooms as well as having provided psychotherapy in school-based setting for years and frequently consult with my community of school-based educators. With a background in education, art and counseling, I have a unique set of tools to help you or your student reach academic and social-emotional goals in the current academic climate of unprecedented uncertainty and change.
I collaborate with parents and children to tailor our sessions to their interests, personality, learning style and personal goals to make the process engaging and fun. Research and experience shows that emotional stress can greatly impact learning and motivation, so I work with the whole person to facilitate their growth. I believe it is important to build confidence as well as skills, and it is vital to support children with positive reinforcement and encouragement as well as clear structure and boundaries. I can teach study tools as well as coping tools to manage stress and personal blocks that will help my students meet their goals.
I also offer consultation with Individuals and Organizations to Improve Mental Wellness in Schools and Companies
