Dr. Harry Motro
Dr. Motro has made working with neurodiverse community the centerpiece of his life.
He has extensive personal experiences with neurodiversity and believes that typical couples counseling falls far short for neurodiverse couples. Accordingly, he has dedicated his practice to providing life-changing counseling for these special but often misunderstood couples.
His background includes the following:
he spent his earlier work life in technology and then chose a second career in helping others,
he is the founder and clinical director of the Neurodiverse Couples Counseling Center where he collaborates with other therapists equally dedicated to the neurodiverse community.
he has collaborated with his team to develop specialized tools to assist neurodiverse couples,
he serves as an adjunct graduate school psychology professor where he has incorporated neurodiverse couples counseling into the teaching curriculum,
he is a clinical supervisor of other neurodiverse couples therapists,
he serves on the board of two non-profits, New Path Couples Therapy and Therapy in Motion.
he has been married 40 years and the proud parent of adult children, and
he has received specialized couples training at the Master's & Doctoral levels.
His interest in neurodiverse couples is rooted in his personal life, his prior work in technology, and because his psychology practice is based in Silicon Valley, a neurodiversity hot spot.
Most neurodiverse couples start off woefully uninformed about their differences and how to support and accept each other.
This misinformation leads to misunderstanding, which eventually morphs into the belief that the other partner is purposely cruel or simply uncaring. Emotional walls come up and intimacy fades and then dies.
The most important part of our work in therapy is to free you from this painful blame and shame cycle. We work to gradually reframe how you understand and see each other, reshaping your patterns, and allowing a new relationship to blossom.
