I believe that all kids are smart, brave, kind, and creative, and I write books to help them remember that. My first book, Everything is Connected, was released February 2019 by Bala Kids, the children’s imprint for Shambhala Publications. While my passion is children's books, I'm also the Author and Co-Creator of The Fountain Tarot and The Fountain Tarot Journal published by Roost Books. Other "in process" books range from autism to Buddhism to vegetarian cooking.
I have a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology and have counseled adults, adolescents, children and families for over 15 years. Some of my services include:
I am an Educational Consultant and Nonprofit Leader with over twenty years experience with individuals and families challenged and enriched by Autism Spectrum Disorders and Developmental Disabilities. My passion and effectiveness have been demonstrated in both public schools as a Teacher and in private settings both as a Founder and the former Executive Director of The Joshua School, a first-of-its-kind school for children with ASD and DD in Colorado.
