About: 

Harry is committed to build a group of caring therapists and coaches who are well-trained on providing research-based treatment for neurodiverse couples. He has personal experience with neurodiversity and believes that general couples counseling tragically falls far short of the true needs for neurodiverse couples. Accordingly, he has dedicated his practice to providing life-changing counseling for this special but often misunderstood population.

His background includes the following:

  • he is the founder and clinical director of the Neurodiverse Couples Counseling Center,
     

  • as an adjunct graduate school psychology professor, he has incorporated neurodiverse couples counseling into his graduate level teaching curriculum,
     

  • he supervises other neurodiverse couples therapists, thus providing his expertise on 20 couples per week,
     

  • he serves on the board of a non-profit, Therapy in Motion, which also serves neurodiverse couples.
     

  • he has been married 36 years with 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 experiences and his practice in Silicon Valley, a neurodiversity hot spot.

NEURODIVERSE COUPLES:

 

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 grows to believing the other partner is cruel, mean or uncaring. Complete polarization often occurs and almost all intimacy dies. The most important part of our work in therapy is to free you from this horrible blame and shame cycle. We reset the whole relationship and build from a new understanding.
