An emotional future plan helps young adults feel prepared to conquer tough situations and explore their lives with less stress and more confidence.
Rather than declaring a goal and revamping every part of an autistic person’s life to reach it, we create an intuitive plan for a life as unique as the person living it! This isn’t therapy or counseling– instead, we work together to assess needs and wants, set goals, establish accountability, and develop effective support systems. Together, we will create and establish actionable plans for personal success.
Outlooks for autistic adults are often bleak– but that’s because our world quite simply doesn’t do enough to support them. We owe it to those we love to be the best supports we can be. That’s where a coach comes in.
Whether it’s employment, life transition, struggles and meltdowns, or education, every transition leads to new potential pitfalls. Learn to be a better family member, ally, friend, caregiver, and support.
One-on-one coaching is a partnership. In this safe relationship, we’ll work with evidence-based tools to explore and assess emotional intelligence, values, strengths, and relationships. We’ll cover education, transition, career and life aspirations, and we’ll all learn new skills along the way.
A coaching relationship builds confidence and increases your ability to advocate effectively for those that you love.

I’m a mentor, a licensed counselor, disability advocate, author, and executive director of AbleTalks, a peer community created for and by neurodiverse adults. Most importantly, I’m Mom to two incredible women that I’ve worked for over 30 years to change the world for.
I live and work in a place where advocacy intersects with disability. My days are spent counseling school-aged children with autism, growing an exciting new company with a team of dear friends, and leading a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young adults with disabilities live richer, more fulfilling lives.
I am a mentor because I’ve spent too many sleepless nights worrying over what would happen to my girls if I wasn’t around to manage the details of our lives anymore. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to be here… nothing could be further from the truth. I just didn’t have a plan in place— and that made me anxious!
I realized many years ago that if I had any hope of sleeping through the night, my girls and I needed a plan. And that led to some really strange, but important discussions about life, death, and everything in between. The result has been far more amazing than even I expected: I’m at peace. And I want to help you get there, too. Let’s have a conversation.
