I am a psychologist who has lived in Berlin, Germany for the last 21 years. I originally come from Vancouver, B.C., Canada, which is where I met Gordon Neufeld. I was a student of his at UBC and his developmental, attachment approach formed the basis of my academic and professional work. My experiences with my autistic son paved the way for my work in the field of autism. I presently work with autistic children and adolescents and coach their parents. I have placed a particular emphasis on the area of autism and play.
