Ashley’s message: “You matter! Life can be challenging, Spruce Creek Counseling is here so that you do not have to navigate those challenges alone. I specialize in trauma treatment and have experience working with all age groups but prefer adolescence through mature adulthood. Spruce Creek Counseling’s motto is “helping to heal and restore your life” because often after traumatic experiences it can feel as though life may never be the same. My goal as your therapist is to help you process through those traumas and release any of the emotional energy from those experiences that might be stuck.”

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. My therapy is neurodivergent-affirming, trans-affirming, sex-positive, anti-ableist, anti-racist, and culturally sensitive. I strive to create a safe space where you are encouraged to be your true authentic self.
Services: Individual, family, couples, all via telehealth
Lianna’s message: I help neurodivergent and neurotypical kids (ages 10+) and adults with anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and understanding their neurodivergence. I truly believe there is no “one size fits all” approach for anything that actually works (even elastic socks come in different sizes!) and everyone should have the right to access the health care and education that is the right fit for them.
Individual, Groups, Family (on behalf of primary client for collaboration and intervention purposes, not on-going family therapy), and Telehealth (including voice only)
Phoenix’s message: “I offer high quality, high impact therapy designed specifically for neurodivergent folks. I can help you move from feeling stuck, traumatized, and misunderstood to feeling safe, seen, and living your full expression. I support my clients with an innovative, holistic approach that offers effective treatment fast. Nervous system activation and becoming stuck in fight/flight/freeze is the core problem of those who suffer from anxiety, overstimulation, meltdowns, depression and unresolved trauma. Instead of spending years “talking it out,” I work with you to resolve the root cause of your suffering through nervous system recovery, building coping skills/strategies, lifestyle changes (such as diet, exercise, and sleep habits), and spiritual connection. Feel better soon, not years from now. I am on a mission to serve the communities I represent and have a deep connection with. I personally identify as neurodivergent (Highly Sensitive Person with autistic and ADHD traits), white/Latinx, pansexual, demisexual, genderqueer, an empath, and am polyamorous. I am passionate about working with these populations and helping them to feel seen, understood, and validated.”
Services: Individual, adults, teletherapy only at this time

Tatjana is currently a Licensed Professional Counselor who is currently accepting Telehealth clients in Colorado. She will take on ADHD coaching clients out of state as well.
Mandy’s message: I believe that while traditional therapy in an office can be really helpful for some people, it’s not for everyone. I combine evidence-based approaches like Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy with experiential practices like animal assisted therapy, adventure therapy, and nature-based therapy. What does that end up looking like? Well, we might hike up a mountain to practice deep breathing while tolerating distress. Or we might meet at a climbing gym to practice mindfulness and workshop social skills. Or we might hang out under a tree with my therapy dog, Cascade, and talk about coping with burnout. I work with adolescents and their families, with people who are navigating being neurodivergent, with adults, and with people who are postpartum. My goal is to help people develop skills to deal with what’s going on in their lives. Please check out my website for more information about my approach and how I work with specific neurodivergencies! (On my website, I have a fill-in-the-blank contact sheet that makes reaching out really easy, too).
Services: individual and couples/sex counseling counseling
Ashley’s message: I work with adults individually or in a couples setting to assist them in creating the life they want to have, working with their neurodiversity instead of against it. I specialize in sex therapy and feel strongly that everyone, regardless of neurotype, deserves their ideal sex life.
Services: Individual and group therapy and coaching for adults and adolescents offered in person and telehealth
Amanda’s message: Are there times you feel like everyone else has it together, but you are still trying to figure it out? Does your heart break when you or your children face repeated rejection and added challenges because of something you can’t control? Neurodivergence and/or disability can make us feel like outsiders. The constant stress of being different takes a toll on our mental health. Copper Well Counseling focuses on providing neurodivergent-affirming therapy, trauma therapy and financial therapy. Many neurodivergent and disabled people have suffered trauma due to being misunderstood and mistreated. We are left with subconscious or internalized ideas about our worth and our potential. Trauma therapy can address and eradicate these unhelpful thoughts. I practice a form of trauma therapy called EMDR which is great for neurodiversity because it addresses the whole brain instead of just the “talking parts” of the brain. Financial therapy can be helpful in addressing money stress. This arises for neurodivergent people because there are often complicating factors around spending, saving, impulsivity, and planning for the future. I am neurodivergent, and I have neurodivergent and disabled kids. I know the experience of not fitting in and the agony of watching your kids struggle in a world that doesn’t accept them. I am here to help you work with the challenges of being different, heal from the pain of rejection, and embrace the power of neurodiversity.
I offer individual, family, in-person, and telehealth. I accept Aetna, BCBS, and Cigna insurance.
Lila’s message: As a neurodivergent person, moving through a world built for neurotypical people can be an overwhelming and disempowering experience. When social pressure or trauma leads you to mask who you really are, it can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, and/or a sense of not inhabiting or controlling your own body. Sometimes, the more you try to fit in, the more alienated you become from yourself and those around you. As a highly sensitive autistic woman, I am passionate about supporting the strengths of neurodivergent girls/women with intersecting identities by providing a safe haven to unmask and live more authentically. We collaborate to develop tools to compassionately and courageously navigate the world. Our work together is informed by my contemplative and mindfulness-based training and an intersectional anti-oppression lens. I am deeply committed to building a non-judgemental, curious, and compassionate space to allow your inherent wisdom to shine through. My therapy is neurodivergent-affirming, LGBTQ+ and trans-affirming, kink-affirming, polyamory-affirming, anti-ableist, anti-racist, and culturally sensitive. I strive to create a brave space where you are encouraged to be your true authentic self. I work with individuals of all ages including young children. I invite you to schedule a free 15-minute consultation so we can talk more about your needs, curiosities, fears, and desires for therapy. I would be honored to be part of your journey.
Chelsea’s message: My mission is to guide people in finding ways of living that feel sustainable, supportive, and aligned with their individual needs and values, as well as to dismantle oppressive societal messages about what and who is considered to be normal or abnormal.
Services: Individual, Couples, Adolescents, Gender Affirming Letter Writing/WPATH letters, Teletherapy only
Elliot’s message: I work with individuals, including adults and adolescents, and couples/partners. I am especially attuned to working with the LGBTQIA+ community, clients who identify as neurodivergent, and those who experience chronic illness. My lived and professional experience lends me well to connecting with those who share these identities. My approach supports you in becoming more connected, authentic, and centered in yourself, important relationships, and your community. I value a social-justice-based approach in my practice and am particularly skilled in navigating life transitions, grief, body image, self-worth, gender identity and transition, sex and sexuality, and relationship dynamics.
Services: Individual psychotherapy for Adults, strictly telehealth
Shirley’s message: I help neurodivergent people, primarily Autistic and/or ADHDers from a disability justice, fat friendly, and LGBTQIAP+ affirming perspective. It is my privilege to support my neurokin who have potentially spent their whole being “othered”, shamed, and not feeling “right” because the world tells us we are wrong for existing as our authentic selves. I believe as humans we can never be broken, but we can be in debilitating pain, and we need help to be fulfilled in our lives. Many of my clients come to me because they are tired of just surviving and ready to move forward towards a better, more affirming, life. I can help you get there.

Cameron’s message: You are the expert on your life. As a counselor, I take a client-centered, culture-centered, anti-oppressive approach. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where we can collaborate on practical and creative solutions to the challenges you encounter. I believe community and relationships are integral to individual wellness and seek to support clients through creating a healthy counseling relationship, integrating clients’ existing support systems, and/or providing encouragement and skills to clients as they build new relationships and communities. As a queer, disabled, neurodivergent person, I am passionate about giving back to my community and providing affirming mental health care for individuals from underserved and/or marginalized communities. My counseling is neurodivergent affirming, LGBTQIA+ affirming, disability affirming, sex & kink positive, polyamory-affirming, and fat positive, and I continually strive to engage in racial justice and create a therapeutic space rooted in anti-racism. If you are interested in working together, please reach out to schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit!

Lily’s message: I’m a sensitive, neurodivergent therapist who helps sensitive and neurodivergent adults make peace with themselves, strengthen inner trust, and learn to honor their unique needs so they can reduce overwhelm and feel grounded, empowered, & expansive in their identities. I offer a compassionate, trauma-sensitive space where all parts of you are welcome and valued (even the parts you hate!) Through our therapy relationship, we’ll co-create a safe container where you can heal old wounds, accept masked and long-rejected parts of you, and learn new ways to relate to yourself. My approach celebrates neurodivergence, is LGBTQIA+ and disability affirming, upholds anti-racism and body liberation/fat acceptance/HAES, is sex, kink, and BDSM positive, sex worker affirming, & supports alternative relationship structures.
