About My Clients
If you are an Autistic adult or teen seeking autism-focused and neurodivergent affirming therapy, I will help you feel safe, supported, and heard with compassion and, as an Autistic therapist myself, I truly get it! Autism-focused therapy is informed by the neurodiversity affirming model to address your unique concerns by reducing anxiety, depression, masking, autistic burnout, meltdowns & shutdowns, low self-esteem, and difficulties with work or school performance, among many other concerns.
What I Specialize In
I specialize in providing autism-focused, neurodivergent affirming therapy for adults and teens with or without a formal autism diagnosis; I provide solutions for anxiety or emotional distress; I address adolescent self-esteem, family conflicts, and other teen issues; and I offer mindful self-care by Dialectical Behavioral (DBT), strength-based, emotionally-focused, and family systems therapy methods. During autism-focused teen or adult therapy, I hope to inspire your self-reflective growth, create a window of opportunity where you can achieve your goals, open a door to your joyful self, and explore how you want to authentically structure your life so that it will work for you or your teen. As a neurodiversity therapist, my greatest joy comes from working with you!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I Welcome Your Authentic Self! I am also LGBTQIA+, nonbinary, and transgender affirming; disability informed; and aware of intersecting forms of discrimination. I strive to create a safe and inclusive space for all of my clients, and I understand the importance of addressing the unique challenges faced by marginalized communities. On a personal level, I am an autistic therapist with a great appreciation for geek culture, virtual reality gaming, science fiction, and superhero films. I also encourage you to explore your focused interests and share them with me as much as you desire. Unmask and be your authentic self! I will work together with you to inspire growth that is both mindful of the present and hopeful for the future. Take that next step toward your or your teen's happiness and contact me when you are ready for your free consultation.
