Therapy for Neurodiverse Clients
Do you or your child hear that they are disorganized, forgetful or careless all the time?
Do you wonder what it would be like if you could concentrate and finish tasks without getting distracted?
Is it possible to create a life that works for you instead of against you?
What if I told you that was all possible. That there are many tricks to finding your groove and making your ADHD brain work for you and that it actually is an asset. I will share those tools and work with you to find your own too.
It does not need to be a disability!
For my autistic clients, I find family communication and executive functioning skills have major differences between those who are neurodivergent and those who are neurotypical. This leads to many arguments, frustration and general breakdowns in how each person solves problems and conveys their feelings. I will be your guide to teach each party how to communicate more effectively and use their unique skill sets to their advantage. NO ABA approaches are used here as that approach assumes the autistic client needs to change their behavior to fit society rather than accepting the person as who they are. This is called masking and it can make an autistic person anxious and frustrated as this is not how they process their world. Our practice is from a neurodiversity affirmative lens that believes in accentuating strengths, not changing the person to fit in societal neurotypical norms.
