Couple Working Together
COUPLES Counseling

Through specialized couples counseling, we build bridges for better understanding, leading to finally feeling heard and accepted. We help you reset your understanding of who each person is, create new ways of listening and responding, and build skills to identify and express emotions.

Emotional Support for NEUROTYPICAL

The partner of an Aspie may feel abandoned and alone, and most of all misunderstood. Your Aspie partner may seem just fine to your friends; yet, you feel desperate and sad, like you're on an island. You need (and deserve) a safe place to talk about your feelings in a constructive way, without worrying about trashing your partner.  

Skills training

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 process and build enough confidence to make a difference in how you are able to show up for your neurotypical partner and stay true to yourself.

“Our therapeutic goal must be to teach the person how to bear their difficulties. Not to eliminate them for him, but to train the person to cope with special challenges with special strategies; to make the person aware not that they are ill, but that they are responsible for their lives.”

― Steve Silberman, NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity
