We are the largest group of therapists and coaches DEDICATED to supporting neurodiverse couples.
Our mission is to serve the needs of neurodiverse couples with care, integrity and respect.
Through specialized neurodiverse couples counseling, we take a strength-based approach to bridge AS and NT ways of thinking. We help you reset the dysfunctional patterns in your relationship and find new ways to communicate so you can connect and resolve long standing issues that may be rooted in your neurological differences.
Emotional Support for NEUROTYPICAL
The neurotypical partner of an Aspie may feel abandoned and alone. Your AS partner may appear fine to your friends so your pain is not understood. In fact, friends and family may wonder what is wrong with you. You need (and deserve) a safe place to talk about your feelings in a constructive way, without worrying about trashing your partner.
Relationships require partners to navigate a maze of unspoken rules, expectations, and emotions. Aspies may struggle to naturally “pick up” these relationship skills. Working with a trained professional can jump start the learning process and build confidence to make a difference in how you are able to show up for your neurotypical partner while staying true to yourself.
Conversations between a neurodiverse couple can feel like two people speaking completely different languages. We introduce structured tools that help each partner send and receive messages with confidence. You will learn how to make sure you got the message right, and, most importantly, we will help you translate unclear emotional language so you can feel connected.
Parenting a neurodiverse son or daughter with an approach that doesn't fit your child can cause everyone in the family to become exhausted and discouraged. And if the parents are not on the same page, the family system will splinter and spiral into chaos. We can help you find a shared parenting style with useful specific techniques that are appropriate for your neurodiverse child.
Neurodiverse SEX Therapy
Sex is one of the most important ways for a couple to connect with each other but can be a challenge because of differences in sensory sensitivities, communications styles and sexual histories. Our approach to sex therapy is built on an affirming and non-shaming view of neurodiversity. Our therapist will provide concrete guidance to help move your sexual relationship forward.
Special Support for ASPIE WOMEN
Adult woman on the spectrum are often overlooked and under-supported. Our team of therapists will help you understand the strengths and challenges of your differences, consider whether a formal diagnosis is needed, learn helpful coping strategies, let go of unhelpful "masking", and, most importantly, build a new life centered on healing and self-acceptance (freedom from shame).
ADHD Couples Therapy
ADHD in marriages often leads to predictable patterns of frustration and disconnect. We help couples become aware of predictable but painful negative patterns, recognize how they misinterpret ADHD symptoms as lack of care, discover new ADHD-sensitive ways to compensate for their differences, and ultimately reinvent their marriage.
Although most of our clients do NOT seek to receive a diagnosis but rather chose to focus on the unique characteristics that impact their relationship, it can be helpful to receive a diagnosis. A diagnosis can provide: a way for a couple reinterpret their interactions; a path to self-acceptance; identification of strengths and how to build on them; and the beginning of a plan of addressing differences.
