I support children and families in learning about their emotions and brains, and to learn to predict and work with the uncomfortable emotions that arise. I explore challenging situations, and delve under the iceberg into what’s causing these emotions to arise, and then work with families/schools so environments around the child support their success and growth. Along the way? We celebrate *hard*, all the successes, all the wonderful things that maketh the individual.
I am invested in research that supports neurodivergent individuals to have access to the rites of passage that neurotypicals take for granted, such as education, employment and relationships. I work on the premise of neuroaffirmative practice, where the counselling space is a safe space for the neurodivergent to be themselves, stimming, flapping, fidgeting and all.
