My clients are autistic individuals or their families and supports whose experience of autism is overwhelming. They are in need of hope, encouragement and direction in order to feel whole and valued. Their overwhelm has led to frustration and uncertainty over possibilities, and what to do next. They arrive, feeling unsafe in their environments, unable to communicate so they are understood, and unappreciated for who they truly are. By establishing a safe relationship and working environment we create the tools necessary to be heard, seen and appreciated. These are the missing cornerstones of their growth and expansion.

We avoid psychotherapy for the same reasons we avoid the dentist, the accountant, or an ex— we’re sure they’ll tell us something's wrong and we’re afraid it might be our fault! Who wouldn’t be ambivalent? Some people might struggle emotionally for a week, a month, or even a year before reaching out to a therapist. And it makes sense— it's hard to confide in a stranger and it can take a while to find the right fit. We want someone who is authentic and experienced, but is also easy to talk to. For some, the flexibility to connect with our partners, children, and family members is even more important. We need someone who "gets" us!
