ADHD and Autism can make navigating a world built by and for neurotypical folks very challenging. I’m here to help.
Below please find my approach to psychotherapy and consultation for ADHD and Autism available to clients in Oregon, New York and Vermont.
ADHD and Autism
What Support Do You Offer To Help Me Improve My Experience And Reach My Goals?
I Have Never Been Diagnosed With ADHD Or Autism, But I’m Sure I Have One Or Both. Can You Still Help Me?
Do You Have Specific Approaches To ADHD And Autism
Yes. In addition to the model I have developed, I also pull from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based therapy approaches, and Internal Family Systems therapy to address symptoms of ADHD and autism, though it is not my philosophy that autism or ADHD themselves require treatment. Rather, it is often the symptoms that arise from the stress of interfacing with neurotypicality that folks come to me for help with.
How Do You Do Therapy?
I offer virtual therapy to clients in Oregon, New York and Vermont. I take a collaborative approach to understand your goals and needs, and we will generate a treatment plan together in order to clear the blocks to accessing your full potential.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Treatment often starts out weekly for 6-8 weeks. During this time we will diagnose the patterns that are not serving you, and set up a path to increasing basic safety and increasing mental bandwidth. This will allow you to then clarify what you really want and how to joyfully move toward it. After that, many clients choose to continue weekly for accountability, deeper exploration, and regular support. Other clients may choose to move to bi-weekly or monthly maintenance or to stop altogether if they are feeling better.
How Can I Get Started?
I offer individual, couples, and family therapy to folks in Oregon, New York and Vermont. Answers to common questions about my practice can be found here.
