Hi, I'm Amanda.

I love seeing weary parents come to life again.

With two Duke degrees, countless academic papers, and a Masters in Theology under my belt, it seemed I was on a steady path. But in 2020, when my son went into severe autistic burnout, and I descended into my own breakdown, everything in my life changed. I reworked my parenting approach and my self-care rhythms based around radical acceptance. From this experience, the low demand approach was born.

I’m a late diagnosed autistic adult, and very proud of it. I’m terrible at small talk; I never leave a party gracefully. My soul comes alive in deep places, deep in nature, deep in contemplation, deep in conversation. I treasure solitude and feel fully alive while woodworking, doing yoga, walking at the beach, and snuggling my kids.

I am ready to help you take your next steps on your parenting journey.
