Autism and Neurodivergent Affirming Therapy
Neurodivergent affirming care is crucial for autistic individuals.
As an autistic therapist myself, I get it. For far too long you have been looking for a neurodivergent affirming therapist who will understand you at your core. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, autistic meltdowns, or burnout from masking. You may feel completely overwhelmed. Therapy with me is a safe space to reduce those difficult feelings and increase your happiness. You may also be exploring what it means to be authentically autistic. If so, you've come to the right place. Neurodiversity affirming therapy is my passion. Let's find what autistic traits bring joy to your life.
This world wasn't designed for neurodivergent people like us. We are often invalidated for our emotional states and responses, sensory needs, and communication differences. I will meet you where you are and create that validating space where you can thrive.
For the autistic community, terms like Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Asperger’s Syndrome can be problematic. I do not operate from a deficit based medical model, nor do I expect a formal diagnosis. There are many reasons that people do not seek out a formal diagnosis and I honor that. I will listen to your valid experiences with respect.
I will emphasize your strengths, prioritize your needs, and focus on your challenges to help create a world that works for you. Contact me when you are ready for your free consultation.
