Maria Davis-Pierre is the Founder and CEO of Autism in Black Inc. in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Autism in Black Inc aims to bring awareness to Autism Spectrum Disorder and reduce the stigma associated with the diagnosis in the Black community. 

As a licensed mental health therapist, Maria primarily works with parents to provide support through education and advocacy training. 

Her passion for working in the field stems from her personal journey with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) when her daughter received the diagnosis at a very early age. In addition to therapy, Maria dons many other titles including coach, speaker, advocate, and author. Her first published work, The Self-Care Affirmation Journal, is currently available for purchase on Amazon. Maria’s unique approach to coaching and counseling exemplifies her drive and motivation toward greater acceptance and overcoming the barriers and personal struggles associated with raising a child on the spectrum.
