Announcement icon At the present time, I am meeting with all clients (adults, children, and groups) remotely using a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform.
Please note that I am not accepting new clients at this time and do not have a waiting list. I'm committed to helping kids and families experience greater enjoyment in their relationships and increased competence and resilience at home, school, and play. I provide treatment services to children ages 0 - 13, parents, caregivers, and families. Using a strengths-based approach to focus on what is working, I develop practical interventions to address concerns about a child's attention, learning, behavior, and social and emotional development, and to help families who are feeling stuck find new ways of relating.
I specialize in working with neurodiverse children ( for example, children diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder), and provide individual therapy and support groups for parents/caregivers of children with disabilities/special needs.
I have worked with children, families, and people with disabilities across the lifespan for over twenty years. I honor diversity in all its forms and strive to make every person with whom I work feel welcome, affirmed, and respected.

Michelle Avery Ferguson's Groups

Group for Parents School-age Children with ASD

Parenting a child with special needs can be isolating and lonely. Families of typically developing children are often unable to relate to the challenges of parenting a child on a different developmental course. This group will provide an opportunity for parents and caregivers of children with a diagnosis of ASD to share with others who can relate to, validate, and affirm their experiences.
