"One of the best kinds of support out there for Autistic individuals is connecting with the Autistic community.
Autistic folks deserve Autistic spaces."
-Lived Experience Educator
I provide an Autistic-affirming perspective in therapy and believe Autism is a genetically-based neurotype, not a medical disorder. "I understand being autistic to be a cultural identity and recognize #actuallyautistic people as experts on their own culture." -Janae Elisabeth, Trauma Geek
As an Autistic therapist, I'm here to create a safe space that affirms your Autistic identity. I fully support, and even encourage, self-identification/self-diagnosing as Autistic.
Autistic Affirming therapy seeks to...
support you in better understanding yourself, by better understanding
create a safe space to explore
Autistic masking and unmasking
attend to the complex trauma many
Autistic people experience
validate your unique lived experience as a late-identified Autistic adult
provide an experience of Autistic culture in session with an Autistic therapist
about special interests in sessions
(this can be deeply healing)
unpack internalized ableism +
discuss Autistic burnout
support you in discovering your needs + learn Autistic coping skills
ALL PARTS OF YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
Together, we'll create an accepting and compassionate environment,
with respect for your neurotype underlying all that we do.
We'll create an affirming container that can hold it all:
the overwhelm, the anxiety, the uncertainty, the grief, the shame...
by utilizing whatever approaches feel most supportive to you.
This may include parts work (Internal Family Systems) or
nonverbal approaches like creative arts expression.
"One of the biggest problems facing autistic people, when seeking mental health treatment, is a mismatch between neurology and therapy modalities. Everyone needs whatever therapy works best for their particular brain."
-Matt Lowry, LPP
