Amanda’s message: Feel like you’re struggling to thrive in a world that wasn’t built for you? We neurodiverse folks know this feeling all too well, and how especially hard it hits when you’re feeling lonely, depressed, anxious, lost, or just completely overwhelmed. Whether you’re just trying to keep your head above water every day or trying to emerge into a new stage of your life, you don’t need to do it all alone. If you’re autistic or think you might be autistic and seeking some help and support without judgement, you’ve come to the right place.

I am passionate about working with neurodivergent adults of all ages, particularly autistic adults and adult ADHD-ers. I have expertise in anxiety, depression, trauma, disordered eating, chronic pain, chronic illness, and adjustment to disability.

I am deeply committed to approaching care in a compassionate and collaborative manner. I am not interested in imposing my beliefs about what my clients’ lives should look like.

Using a combination of therapeutic strategies, I tailor treatment to each individual.”

Diana’s message: I am a neurodiversity affirming neuropsychologist who strives to provide collaborative and therapeutic evaluations for adults (18 and over) seeking diagnostic clarification or to learn more about themselves. My assessments are focused on identifying and leveraging strengths and I view neurodivergence as part of normal variation (not a “disorder”) but also recognize that living in a neurotypical world presents obstacles for some neurodivergent individuals. I often work with clients in determining which (if any) work/school accommodations may be beneficial and assist clients in navigating that process. My approach is warm and curious, and I get the most joy out of learning about my clients in terms of the “whole person” they are, versus a diagnosis.

Often, the individuals in this type of relationship suffered deep attachment injuries and need a therapist that uses a neurotype-informed lens to prevent more harm, confusion and resentment from building up.
