The Disability


You are here


Welcome to the Disability Intersection!  I’m Lara, and I hope you find this site informative and helpful..  Here you will be able to access material on general disability issues, mental health concerns and trauma intervention as they affect disabled people and members of society at large.  We are passionate about this. I provide disability aware consultation, writing, speaking and training services to businesses and organizations. Contact me to discuss your needs today!

This is a place of safety, encouragement and evidence based practices. Using macro social work skills, and personal experience with physical, learning disability and chronic illness, The Disability Intersection seeks to help you with disability and illness related concerns and training needs.  In addition to services for organizations, I provide non-clinical (not therapy) support to disabled people and supporters. If you’d like some help, contact me!

See the services page for more.

People with all types of disabilities and our supporters are welcome here. We are stronger together than apart.  I believe that nothing about us should be accomplished without us. Everything I do reflects a deep commitment to that belief.  

Welcome to a new day. . .Welcome to the Disability Intersection!
