I have been a teacher for almost 20 years, and I am deeply committed to the learning process. Because of my academic background (I received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry) I was able to observe closely the disconnection between professional/academic settings, and the community they serve.
I bring to these academic and professional spaces perspective, information, and language that can help providers better understand and therefore serve families in their field.
My services are best fitted for seminars focused on family services, the parent-child relationship, and/or children's well-being. I bring knowledge gathered over many years working with families, and perspective I have gained from being able to connect both with the providers, and the community they serve.
I bring a strengths-based and trauma informed approach that is rooted in equity and neurodiversity.
"Luisa is an absolute gem! She is a wealth of knowledge, bringing a unique perspective through her expertise in mental health support and lived experience with neurodivergence and navigating family support systems. Her ability to present information clearly and with immense compassionate is unmatched. She always offers insightful perspectives and incredibly useful information. I learn something new every time I have the privilege of hearing her speak and I will always keep coming back for more."
