Group Facilitator:

“I combine my therapy skills with ten years of academic teaching to help ACCEPT > 30 group participants understand their neurodivergent operating systems and become fluent in translating their perceptions and experiences to neurotypical friends, family members, colleagues, and service providers, so they can experience greater authenticity and ease in their lives with the neurodiverse population to promote self-awareness, self-regulation, and improved executive function, attention, and time management.”
