My life’s journey has been blessed by working with special needs children. Over the past 15 years, I’ve had the privilege to touch the lives of hundreds of children, each with different levels of social, emotional, physical and cognitive challenges. My true passion surrounds working with autistic children. They have been true teachers to me, helping me understand the humanity of my own life. Since obtaining my Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy, I’ve worked both in center-based OT environments and in private homes. I’ve always believed that autism is a puzzle that requires a very diverse and multifaceted approach. Therefore, I’m passionate about learning new approaches and continue to study a wide array of protocols and methodologies including relationship-based interventions, HANDLE, Auditory Integration Therapy, and primitive reflex interventions. I also give workshops, seminars and provide one-to-one coaching for parents and other professionals who are involved in the autism community.
