Hi I’m Andrea
People like to feel purposeful and successful. Neurologically impaired and neurodivergent people often experience limitations when expressing their own potential. Whether that’s due to lack of information, support, and training, this is when therapy and coaching can help.
I work with you to establish goals that will create the most impact in your or your loved ones life. Setting up the care team for success in achieving those goals based on the parameters of your life.
I have 40 years of experience promoting health and well-being in a variety of healthcare settings. In 2003, I founded InnerSparks, LLC offering services in the community to facilitate growth, enhance health and foster well-being.

I specialize in working with adults who are neurodiverse and have learning differences. We learn and grow at the rate of our nervous system makes sense of the world around us. My expertise involves advanced understanding of how mind, body and spirit can work together to achieve functional goals and successful lives.
I understand that every individual is unique. I take a holistic approach to therapy and coaching, focusing more on strengths and learning new ways of solving problems, not just the challenges. This ensures a well-rounded and personalized approach to supporting my clients to achieve their aspirations.
Empathy & Understanding
I approach my clients with empathy, patience, and understanding. I create a safe and supportive environment where individuals can express themselves freely and work towards their goals without judgment.
I believe in the power of collaboration. I work closely with my clients, who set goals for themselves. Together we break down the goals into small manageable objectives. Every step is an opportunity for feedback and informs us of the next most effective course of actions. This process of goal setting and effective course correction happens when clients actively participate in their own journey whether it be personal and/or professional growth.
My goal is to empower my clients with skills and strategies that have a lasting impact on their lives. Whether it’s developing coping mechanisms, enhancing executive functioning skills, or building self-confidence, I equip my clients with tools they can use in various aspects of their lives.
