Asperger’s Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that many consider to be a higher-functioning form of autism. The symptoms and severity of Asperger’s disorder vary greatly, but some of the more common symptoms include: difficulty with social interaction, restricted range of interests and/or repetitive behaviors and delayed motor development, like clumsiness or uncoordinated body movements. While there is no cure for Asperger’s Syndrome, many therapies are available, proving to be helpful in treating those with everyday difficulties. Treatment ranges from behavioral therapies to basic social interaction and self-esteem building.

I have a passion for working with individuals on the autism spectrum that stems from both personal and professional connection with this population. I specialize in working with young adults on the autism spectrum that traditionally “age out” of services tailored to them by the time they turn 18.
It can be difficult for someone who struggles with connection to find someone they connect with. I love helping individuals with Asperger's or traits of Asperger's feel comfortable being themselves. Together, we will work through the awkward places and establish attainable goals, helping you reach your highest potential.
