Clinical Social Worker | ADHD and Executive Functioning Coach | Parent Coach

With over two decades of experience in education and mental health, I am excited to announce the launch of Collaborative Healing Consultants—a practice committed to cultivating inclusive and nurturing families, schools, and organizations.

At the heart of my mission lies a dedication to recognizing and leveraging the unique strengths of each individual. This commitment is exemplified in my work with neurodiverse individuals, where I strive to celebrate diverse learning styles and needs. My goal is to move beyond stigma towards genuine understanding and support.

Specializing in evidence-based strategies focused on personal/family empowerment and effective communication, with a particular expertise in neurodiversity, I aim to support you to tackle complexities and navigate life's challenges with confidence.

Warm regards,

What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

Parent coaching concentrates on current and future challenges, helping parents enhance their skills and achieve their goals with practical behavioral management strategies.

In contrast, therapy delves into the past, aiding parents and children in understanding and healing from previous traumas, and addressing mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Both coaching and therapy can be complementary when coordinated effectively, and it's possible to engage in both simultaneously.
