Hello and welcome!

 

I am a spiritual counselor and practicing intuitive, and more importantly, a proud mother of Austin, a teenage boy on the autism spectrum. Being a parent of a child with special needs is a unique, magical, and challenging life to live. Often, what makes it most challenging is coping with the stress, fear, grief, and isolation that is endemic in the special needs parenting community.

 

After receiving Austin's diagnosis in 2009, I was grief-stricken. It was difficult to find any light until one day I realized it was all around me. What followed this awakening began a process of connecting with myself more deeply to heal. The further I explored myself from within, the more tools I needed to assist me. I discovered the value of self-reflective inquiry, meditation, intuitive development, and energy (spiritual) healing. What I didn't expect was channeling Austin's higher self.

 

One day in 2013, I was very upset because Austin was unable to talk with me. He was 7 years old. I was sitting in a cafe with my laptop and felt my intuition nudging me to reach out to him. I thought, What do I have to lose?  I simply said, Hello and he responded. Not only did he respond, but he had a lot to say. Knowing I type faster than writing by hand, I opened my laptop and transcribed our first conversation. This moment changed the course of my life, putting me on a path I would never have imagined: Channeling higher forms of consciousness to support parents on their growth and healing journeys.

 

A pivotal moment on my healing journey was recognizing that the stressors of parenting are opportunities to understand what keeps us stuck in the grieving process and accepting our role as parents of special needs children. I simply call them catalysts, or calls, to awaken us to develop more insight. These catalysts are powerful. If we pay attention to them, not avoiding the uncomfortable feelings they evoke, we can discover lessons that lead to deeper insight and greater understanding about who we are and the life we are living.

Now, a decade later, my passion is working with parents who need support as they care for themselves and the ones they love. Out of my passion has birthed a book, The Healing Way: 19 Powerful Lessons from Raising a Son on the Autism Spectrum That Transformed My Grief into Acceptance, Connection, and Joy. It will be available in the Fall of 2023. 

Thank you for visiting my website. May your life journey be filled with curiosity, self-compassion, and magic.
