Welcome neurodivergent (ND) folks! I don't see your differences as symptoms, I just see YOU. If you are struggling to keep up with friends, work, your life, you've come to the right place. You've always felt different, you're not like most other kids. Maybe you had trouble making friends. Life has never been easy. Your parents try to understand but maybe they never struggled the way you do so it's harder for them to get it. Time and again you find yourself wishing you could be more "normal". The thing is, I won't help you be more "normal", I'll help you be more YOU. Unmask and get ready to accept yourself in a whole new way.

At VCATTRC we believe that there is a strong correlation between a healthy brain and a person’s mental, behavioral, and cognitive functioning. Mental behavioral disorders such as anxiety, depression, and addiction, have been linked to serious behavioral and cognitive dysfunctions in children, adolescents, and adults. Thus, treating such disorders and related co-occurring disorders is in need of a proper and specialized multi dimensional assessment, evaluation, and neurocognitive treatment plan.
