Description

Class Experience

Students will learn strategies to somewhat reduce their own anxious thoughts in everyday situations like schedule changes, test anxiety, needles at the doctor's office, meeting people, trying new things, etc.
I am an autism and sensory coach, helping autistic teens and their families find and remove hidden barriers to success and build positive life experiences. One of those hidden barriers is often anxiety, which is why I've spent years helping my clients and students work with and reduce anxiety, so they can do the things they want to do.

I am on the autism spectrum, a highly sensitive person, have sensory processing differences, and live with chronic pain. It is my lived experience with these different ways of being in the world that led me to learning more about them and helping others. I am a trained Martha Beck Wayfinder Life Coach. Prior to coaching professionally, I taught middle and high school, and remain a certified teacher.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
