About Me

I received my master degree in speech-language pathology from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence from ASHA as well as licensure in the state of Florida.

 

As a neurodiversity-aligned therapist, I provide non-traditional, anti-ableist services. I value my clients' differences, always presume competence, and respect their right to self-advocacy, autonomy, and a self-determined life. While at the University of Louisiana, I came to love school-age literacy and people with aphasia, and as an autistic person, I'm passionate about the rights of autistic people and ensuring that autistic voices are heard.  

Some of my interests and hobbies include traveling, hiking, music, and barre. As a late-identified autistic person, I've made efforts to unlearn my internalized ableism, understand my neurology, accommodate my own needs, and take pride in my autistic identity. I want this for my neurodivergent clients as well. I look forward to working with you and supporting your family's needs!
