What we're about

Hi! My name is JJ and I am here to facilitate a parent support group in the Portland area.
A little about me.. I have worked in occupational therapy with a focus on children with special needs for going on 8 years now. In total, outside of OT, I have worked with children and families for 13+ years. Through out my experiences, I have come to understand and empathize with the emotional toll, confusion, and exhaustion felt by parents. Through my independently led parent groups and the countless hours spent 1on1 with my previous clients, I have noted a consistent response of feeling anxious, uncertain, overwhelmed, and in need of support.

My goal with this group is to facilitate a supportive, educational, and uplifting experience to bring parents together. Allowing you to freely express yourself and to build on self care techniques to aid in a healthier you not only for yourself, but also for your beautiful child. This group has an emphasis on those with children with special needs, though is open and welcoming of any parent who is struggling with anxiety, feeling lost, needing support, etc. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. I truly look forward to meeting all of you and building a supportive community together!
