Autism Coaching & Mental Health Presentations

Living as an autistic woman myself, I provide individual & family support as well as motivational speaking and group coaching.

Motivational Speaking

Ibbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb have been a public speaker for more than six years, from all around South Jersey and the Philadelphia area to all the way in Guangzhou, China (see image on the right). I have a podcast/radio show on 91.5 WDBK about positive psychology, mental health, comedy, and social work.

The topics I cover include:
* Stress management
* What to do when ……
* “What does this mean?” and general autism education/Q&A
* Crisis Intervention Support
* Dialectical Behavioral Skills
* And more…

Individual & Family Coaching Services

I am a Master of Social Work student at Rutgers University with a bachelor’s in both Psychology and Philosophy. While I am not a doctor of any kind, I am informed by research, years of crisis intervention experience, traditional clinical social work, teaching, and general work with people with disabilities (especially ASD) professionally, and my own experience.

While I view autism as a gift, it can also come with challenges that may impede the gifts shining through. I know that it can be difficult living with someone different from you, but I also believe in setting families up to succeed and thrive happily, and plant seeds of hope for a bright future. I believe that anyone, with the right guidance, can lead a happy life.

No two people are alike, but I am able to relate well to the experience of being an autistic child because I was one. We grow strong either because of, or in spite of the trials we face as people with disabilities.

I will share my own experience and translate what behaviors are intended to communicate, and how to intervene effectively and compassionately in situations of emotional crisis, without getting overwhelmed yourself.

I want to empower people to exist in the world as-is, and follow the trail of acceptance, rather than changing themselves.

Hiatus from WDBK

Hi everyone! I’ve returned from social service in China.

However, The Best Medicine is currently on hiatus until at least September.

Keep an eye out for an announcement regarding the next time-slot!

In the interim, I’ll be working on some social service projects and doing stand-up when I can. Friends and fans, thank you for your loyalty and understanding!
