Why a Free Consultation?
I want to do everything I can to help you feel comfortable and confident as you start the counseling process. The twenty minute free consultation, done either in person or on the phone, gives a risk free opportunity to find out what counseling with me would be like.
Need more time? As an alternative to the free consultation I also offer the first session at half price. See Facts & Details page for more information.
Let me help you find greater peace and comfort in life through understanding yourself, others and how to manage your life and relationships.
In the spring of 2023, I realized that 90% of my practice is neurodivergent adults. The vast majority of my clients do not come to me knowing they are neurodivergent. If you are like them, you are considering therapy because you feel like everyone else got the handbook for life and you were left out, you struggle to do the things that other people seem to do without effort and struggle to translate their thoughts into words.
What is neurodivergence? It means that the individual’s brain is specialized in a way that gives that person some wonderful abilities but also causes them to struggle with other tasks that the “normal” person hardly thinks about. They feel confused because they frequently know they have special abilities but struggle with life tasks that everyone else seems to take for granted. People with Autism, ADHD, OCD, dyslexia and similar diagnoses all fit under the broad umbrella term of "neurodivergence".
I have worked with neurodivergent clients since 2016 and have long standing relationships with my clients. I have had the privilege of learning in depth from my clients about what it is like to be them and what sorts of strategies do and don’t work for them.
Since this is an under-served population, I have a special interest in people with neurodivergence and their loved ones. I include loved ones because relationships are frequently an area of difficulty and concern for neurodivergent people. I have decades of experience helping neurodivergent people navigate their life and relationships. I have deep compassion for the struggle that misunderstanding creates for both the neurodivergent person and their special people.
