Autism

Autism is a developmental disorder, typically emerging in childhood, which affects a patient’s ability to effectively socialize and communicate. Therapists qualified in the treatment of Autism can also help to diagnose it, as well as work with the individual on their social skills, help them learn to control emotions and address repetitive behaviors, among other things. If you or your child has received a diagnosis of Autism (or you suspect one may be forthcoming), contact one of our specialists today for support.

I work with parents of autistic individuals of all ages to help them address problematic behaviors and transition to the next stages of their lives. I consult with teachers and school districts to provide training in identifying and serving students on the autism spectrum.

Many adults wonder if they have Aspergers or Autism because work isn't going well, relationships are a struggle & stress is difficult to manage. Understanding how your brain & body works is the most important way to move forward. We can work together to determine if you are neurodiverse & to find your niche vocationally as well as building confidence in relationships.
