About Me

Here to Help You Realize

Your Full Potential

I am an educator with expertise in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). During the pandemic, I used my knowledge to start a small business to support parents of children up to the age of 18 living with ASD.

I’m also a mother that is passionate about educating and supporting neurodivergent families.

With a degree in Special Care Counseling, for nearly two decades, I worked as an educator and observed the ongoing difficulties families face to find balance, as well as the gaps in resources designed to support them.

In the midst of the pandemic, when resources were restricted or unavailable, I witnessed firsthand the strain placed on families with children with unique needs and little to no support system. Parents were forced to take care of others before themselves, often neglecting themselves entirely creating feelings of depletion. 

By seeing parents in this situation, it motivated me to pursue my interest in offering parent coaching.

I strongly believe by providing you with tools and strategies, you can realize your child’s full potential which will lead to peace and harmony within your family.

Amy’s Approach

Self Reflection and Global Overview

Raising a neurodiverse child comes with a unique set of challenges. Resentment, loneliness, and depression are all symptoms of distress. You must be aware of it, think about it, and let it go in order to be free of any helicopter parenting and overcompensation.

I will inquire about the nature of the issues that brought you to me during our initial session, including any relationship or family issues, emotional distress symptoms, or both. In addition, I will inquire about your general life circumstances, family composition, and everyday activities.

I want to pay close attention to your short-term goals during our strategy meetings, not just as a parent but also in addition to that. What goals and desires do you have?

With compassion acting as your coach, you will be encouraged to express yourself verbally and emotionally in a welcoming and judgment-free setting.

Goal Setting and Implementation

Together, we’ll identify your child’s targeted behavior and your desired result, set an aim, and create an efficient action plan.

What I Can Do For You.

my services

I provide parents with support in dealing with their emotions of helplessness, isolation and exhaustion, and assist them in changing their thinking .

With my online sessions, I aim to empower burnt out, isolated parents with tools and strategies to reduce their child’s anxiety in challenging environments.
