Being smart is hard. Being a gifted child or gifted teen means that you are experiencing the world, and your development, in a fundamentally different way than those around you. I'm here to help.

My Approach

A gifted kid or gifted teen needs someone who knows and understands the many complexities of what it means to be gifted. That’s where I come in. When working with your gifted child, you and I will work alongside your child to navigate the complex dynamics of which you both endure. I’ll help identify the various challenges they are going through and then help teach both of you how to advocate for your child’s needs, build their confidence, and manage their emotions so that you and your child can get back to a joy-filled life. When I work with gifted teens, I won’t be another adult telling you what you should do, who you should be, or how you should be feeling. Instead, I’ll meet you where you’re at. This way, you can learn how to embrace your giftedness and build those necessary skills so that life makes sense and is way less overwhelming.

My Background

As a gifted person myself, my childhood and youth was difficult. No matter what advice was offered to my loved ones or even myself, I struggled. From school to peers to family…I battled with being hyper-sensitive, the inability to focus, and trying to perfect anything and everything. These challenges made my life hard, and consequently, my loved ones’ lives hard. As a gifted counselor, I am now empowered to use my own experience growing up gifted to empathize with you and your child, and to help you both achieve the support you’re looking for. Together, we will focus in on you and your child through a person-centered approach. First in what you and your child are feeling in the moment, and next in what can realistically be done to achieve concrete changes in your child’s life. Allowing us to ultimately bring an awareness to your child and their life in order to better face the rollercoaster of giftedness.
