in a neurotypical world
Perfectionist, Overthinker, Procrastinator, People Pleaser.
That’s what I used to believe about myself. That’s what I used to say to myself. That’s what I used to call myself.
And I’m not alone.
For so many women who go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed?
This is our reality.
And this was my reality until April of 2021.

From Undiagnosed to Late Diagnosed
To put it simply, I’m a late diagnosed Autistic & ADHD mom raising a neurodiverse family in this neurotypical world.
Looking back, however, I can say that so many things make sense!
Understanding why my brain works the way it does.
It’s meant having to learn how to unmask.
How to stop hiding the things that would define being autistic or having ADHD.
It’s meant learning about executive functions and emotional regulation.
Not just for myself but for my autistic daughter.
How I Can Support You
As a late diagnosed autistic and ADHD woman, one of my primary focuses is to support fellow late diagnosed folks like me. As a mom of an autistic individual, I also know that I want to support parents of neurodivergent individuals like her. I also know my limits.
And, after helping thousands of parents and caregivers of autistic children? I knew that it was time for a change.
While I would love to offer coaching to both neurodivergent adults and to parents of neurodivergent individuals, I can’t do both. What I can do is provide resources and support for parents & caregivers.
