A Note from Karissa

Thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you have found it easy to navigate and informative. I put it together with the intention of providing resources to Families, while also offering readers a sense of who I am.

It is an amazing adventure you are embarking upon, and you deserve knowledgeable people with whom you can collaborate.  Finding individuals who meet your needs and understand your sensibilities can go a long way towards being comfortable.  I often joke that if you line up five LCs you'll get 15 different right answers, because most of us strive to provide options for our clients. This is your journey. We simply walk beside you and offer guidance.... okay, sometimes we catch and carry you when you stumble, but only until you have found your footing again.  If this site, or particularly,  my resource page, hasn't answered your questions, please drop me a line and I will help point you in the right direction. 

I look forward to hearing from you- Karissa
