More Information
It’s my first year out of college & I’m navigating switching my clients with autism over to telehealth. I’m a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. I’m also a long time therapy-goer & enneagram type 2. I give a lot of energy and support to my clients every day and I love my work. I have been noticing that I’m left wanting some support and encouragement in return. I want to feel seen & asking others to provide that is hard.

    I love your vulnerability! You already are on your way to asking for help. You did now! You keep up the good work and keep trusting life to keep protecting you

    Hi Amanda,
    Could I send you a letter? I'm a full time nanny and a part-time SLP in Early Intervention, and I hear you! My e-mail is kates1268@gmail.com if you'd be willing to send your address.
    Sending love <3
  • Mary,
    Amanda,
    Try to remember, as Brené Brown says, asking for help is a sign of courage, not a weakness. You are courageous for asking to have your needs met. I see you and I support you. As a retired special education teacher, who has worked with a lot of individuals with autism (many with challenging behaviors) I guarantee you, that even when you don’t feel supported or encouraged, there will be days when a client has a break through, or will say or do something that touches you in such a special way that it will be all the encouragement you need. Hang in there. Transitions are hard. Sometimes life is hard, but is also fun, crazy, wonderful, and rewarding. Sending love & support!

    Amanda! You are doing the work!! You are courageous for doing the work you do and impacting the lives of others in need. That is a hero! It's okay to struggle sometimes, and you are strong to ask for support and love in return. Sending you a big virtual hug.
    Kindly,
    Taylor, a mom of two little ones in New Jersey

    Amanda-
    Congrats on college, I know things must feel overwhelming right now but day by day you'll get through it. If you have trouble asking for help, use this time of transition to become more comfortable with it. Trust me, in law school I learned just how valuable it is to be able to take advantage of all the resources around you and not just try to do everything yourself.

    The hard times will pass and you'll get through it and you'll be all the better for it. Good luck with everything, thanks for all your important hard work. Sending you lots of love and luck!

    You should be so proud of the important work you’re doing. Now more than ever. You are seen. You are valued and you are special!
