Helping You Live A Life Without Limits!
I have over 20 years of hands on and leadership experience in Special Education and Recreation Therapy. My passion is working with intellectually disabled youth/adults in the areas of functional academics and life skills. I currently facilitate group and individual sessions to increase independent living skills, self advocacy, and social skills with middle school/high school students and adults. The adult groups create arts and crafts and sell them at local farmers markets to increase their confidence and skills that will enable them to secure gainful employment. I also provide behavioral therapy lessons in the areas of social skills, stress management, anger management, leisure education, time management/organization and communication skills. I have tutored in residential treatment centers, run-away shelters, and in private practice. I am very creative and hands on in my approach and am a firm believer in making learning fun.
