About My Clients

You have always wondered why you feel so different from other people, and struggle with social communication and relationships. You may suspect autism or Asperger's, but have been told you "can't be" because you make eye contact, for example, or because you have a friend. There is much more to the autism spectrum than meets the eye. Do you want to learn more about yourself and what makes you tick, whether it's autism or not? I can help.

My Background and Approach

I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who has never provided ABA. I hold a Religious Studies Doctorate (RSD) in pastoral counseling with an emphasis on counseling those affected by autism. I have worked in the field of autism and autism assessment for over 20 years and am an author and speaker about autism and behavior. On a personal note, I was married for 27 years to a man with Asperger's and have 2 adult autistic children. I understand your situation, and I have the knowledge, skills , and experience behind me to give you the help you deserve. Because I have international BCBA certification, and I work exclusively through telehealth, it doesn't matter where you live. If you want to find out whether or not you have Asperger's or autism, I can help.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

People on the Autism Spectrum, and those who love, teach, live, and work with them, are among my favorite people in the world. I believe we all share the same human rights, regardless of ability or "label," including the right to be heard and understood. In particular, I believe women, nonbinary, and trans individuals face unique challenges in seeking an autism diagnosis because of the very different way autism manifests in them as compared to cishet males. Politically I lean strongly to the left. I am a writer, a speaker, and an optimist. I live in Salem, Oregon with my 3 talented adult children of various abilities and their 2 cats.
