She works with clients of all ages and abilities on social communication skills (e.g., friendship-building, relationship maintenance, social safety, nonverbal language, perspective taking, and self-advocacy), executive functioning (e.g., time management, planning and prioritizing, making and keeping appointments), as well as college/career planning, transitioning, and development through supportive, reflective conversations and role-playing.


Marie brings over a decade of experience working with clients of all ages in a variety of settings, including home care, private clinics, and public schools, where she has delivered services to students with various learning disabilities. She has also helped numerous students research, apply to, and get accepted into college.

A PERSONAL NOTE

Mom of two daughters, who are now young adults. I am blown away at the amazing young women they have become and can’t believe how fast time has flown!

I am married to the love of my life, who I met in Japan while studying abroad. Turns out he was from New York though ;)

I was born and raised in Sweden, am bilingual and have dual citizenship. Both my daughters speak Swedish as well. I love languages and am bilingual certified.

When I am not working, you might find me hiking a mountain or traveling to visit family.
