  As your Mental Health and Autism Spectrum Consultant,  I will advise and support you in identifying the best resources and services for your child, age infant to adult.  I am very familiar with the vast array of resources available within the community and can help you navigate through those options, some of which have eligibility requirements. I will work with your child's providers to build a team that best supports your goals. 

I have years of experience advocating as a professional and as a parent. I am trained as an attorney,  I have a master's degree in child development and experience as an early intervention provider. I am trained in Collaborative Problem Solving (at MGH) and I'm also a certified mediator. I completed the Parent Consultant Training at the Federation of Children with Special Needs. I am a trainer for the  National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), and have participated in continuing education at the Aspergers Association of New England (AANE), and the Special Education Advocacy Network(SPAN) programs. I have taken graduate courses in special education at Framingham State College. 

  I work as a life coach for adults who have Asperger's. I am fluent in Hebrew.
