Our experience and educations drive our belief that growth happens best in the environments for which it is needed, such as in classrooms, homes and the client's community. Our greatest desire is to educate, model, monitor and troubleshoot the skills needed to develop your personal goals.

Hello and thank you for visiting our site and considering taking this step toward meeting your goals! I have been assessing for and identifying needs, designing programs, developing or modifying curriculum, reporting progress and training educators in a wide range of capacities since 1989. I have a keen interest in working with individuals and families impacted by challenges related to anAutism Spectrum Disorder. My only hope is that Eric and I can work in tandem to assist you and your family in identifying and reaching your individual and combined purpose!
I started my journey with youth and adults with diverse cognitive and emotional needs 28 years ago as an instructional paraprofessional. I found my purpose! Since that time I have worked in a variety of capacities in the fields of special education, Autism, and mental health. As a result of experiences ranging from a tutor, paraprofessional, teacher, behavior consultant, program director and participant instructor for Teacher's College of San Joaquin, I have developed a strong belief that the fields of psychology and education must be purposefully combined to maximize change.
As the program coordinator, I look forward to the opportunity to assist you in designing a plan that will help you in your pursuit of a peaceful, positive life change.
