I believe in the potential of people. Regardless of diagnosis, regardless of history, regardless of what reports and assessments say, I believe in the potential of people. I believe in their potential to grow, change, understand, and to achieve success in unique and individualized ways.
Working with individuals with exceptional skills, needs and challenges has taught me to look beyond the surface; to peel back layers of judgement, social construction and belief that there is one 'right' way of being.
I appreciate that life with an exceptionality / disability / difference can be challenging, but I know first hand that challenge helps us to grow. It changes us and if we embrace it, makes us stronger! On the days when you don't feel strong, when you are discouraged and are not sure which step to take next, I can help.
