MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is the gold standard treatment for individuals who want to change a behavior (substance use, diet, exercise, etc.).

AUTISM CONSULTATION AND COACHING

For those diagnosed later in life (teens and young adults), it may be a confusing time. I have experience supporting individuals in their journey of self-discovery as neurodivergent. I provide an initial consultation for those who have questions and ongoing coaching for those who want support.
