Rehabilitation

Adobestock 236372863

If we live long enough, most of us will experience a disability.  Sometimes, our adjustment to disability can be overwhelming and we need assistance in coping, adjusting, and moving forward.  I have 20 years of experience as Certified Rehabilitation Counselor to assist you with accepting, and adjusting to life with a physical or mental health condition, and to help you find a new sense of balance in your life.

Disability: Education and Employment, Career Changes

Adobestock 265827835

Employment and the skills to contribute to the labor force brings much more than money–the research indicates that people gain a sense of belonging and purpose through work.  My expertise is in special education plans (Section 504) and Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), and youth transition, worker’s compensation, short term disability, and long term disability, and state/federal vocational rehabilitation.

As a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), I provide specialized youth transition services to help for college and career planning for life after high school and greater independence.

Finding Meaning, and Purpose

Adobestock 135480804

Our own purpose, and sense of purpose, is critical for our thriving.  The purpose of our lives is often to find meaning, and purpose, especially when faced with adversity across our lifespans.  For example, my campaign to bring awareness about the needs of veterans and their families, care givers, and survivors includes bring community conversations that are authentic, and address the needs of each person in our community.
