awkward. These can definitely be aspects, but they only touch on a small part of the experience.
Being neurodivergent impacts how you think, how you feel, how you learn, how you love, how you grow, and what you value. It can often be incredibly validating for people to learn that they aren’t wrong, broken, or lacking intelligence- their brains just work in a way that needs different support and prioritizes different things than most people.
There is more understanding than ever about the ways ND can impact our whole wellbeing. That includes our relationships, job satisfaction, mood, and mental health.
“Neurodivergent” means a person's brain works differently than most neurotypical people in a way that significantly impacts their everyday experiences. Neurodivergence is often used to label experiences like ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), ADD/ADHD, and OCD. However, being neurodiverse (ND) is more than being easily distracted, struggling with time management, or feeling socially
Having a framework for how to address these things - when going the trauma/anxiety/depression/couples counseling route hasn’t been quite right - can make all the difference. Below is the integrated, holistic roadmap I utilize when working with neurodiverse clients:
Therapy can help unlock the world-changing potential of a neurodiverse mind
I have worked with countless children and adults to recognize and embrace their neurodiversities. My focus is the treatment of underlying social, emotional, behavioral and social interaction skill deficits commonly found in people struggling with issues related to executive functioning and/or sensory processing. Using hands-on strategies, children and adults learn concrete approaches that can be generalized from the therapy session to everyday life.
