Erika’s message: “Nothing about us without us! I am a trauma informed, neurodivergence affirming, social justice minded, fat positive, autistic therapist with specialties, training, education, and lived experience with people who have childhood trauma, or later life trauma or both, C-PTSD, LGTBQIA2S+, Anxiety, depression, and the general stress that comes with being a neurodivergent person sometimes feeling devalued, misunderstood, rejected, unaffirmed and overwhelmed. My goal is to affirm and empower as we work toward your goals. I use a mish-mash of modalities in my person centered, humanistic, strengths focused approach. Always with your consent, and working together to find out what works best for you since we are all different! EMDR, Ego state, and internal Family Systems, PolyVagal theory, mindfulness, somatic approaches, solution focused problem solving, supportive counseling, and humor!”
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida (SW10050) and North Carolina (C011278)
Offers holistic online therapy for individuals (adults)
River’s message: “Healing happens when we feel safe enough to show up exactly as we are. All parts of you are welcome here. I’m not here to change you or fix you. I don’t think you are “broken” or that there’s anything “wrong” with you. Together we’ll create an accepting and compassionate environment, with respect for your intuition + body’s wisdom underlying all that we do. I’m an autistic therapist, trauma + social justice-informed, and view therapy through an intersectional lens (bodymind, environment, culture). During our time together, we’ll likely look at environmental factors (interpersonal, economic, oppression) that create individual/collective stress and trauma. Neurodiversity affirming + LGBTQIP2S affirming

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.
Services: I offer all virtual services for individuals, groups, and parent coaching.
Patricia’s message: Patricia Lomando, LCSW, RPT-S, provides neurodivergent affirming and trauma informed services for the child, adolescent, and adult. Depression and anxiety are passions focused on throughout her career. Using expressive arts, play, CBT, and somatic approaches, she explores mood and prevention patterns, collaborates on coping strategies and helps identify those sometimes elusive gifts that are part of every neurotype. With expansive certifications in Registered Play Therapy and Infant Mental Health, she works through methodologies that bridge family gaps and help “translate” the child’s language through play, art and sand tray work. Autism is a focus that Ms. Lomando has personal and professional ties to. She is a Certified Autplay Therapist and has extensive training in Floortime and Play Project. CBT, DBT and Solutions focused approaches are used with adults, children, parent groups and family sessions. All interventions are based in mutual respect and collaboration. Ms. Lomando uses multiple virtual tools balanced with creative materials/toys on both ends of the screen to offer an optimal telehealth experience. All diagnoses and personalities are met from a stance of acceptance, support and client efficacy. Strengths are highlighted, various learning styles are appreciated, and homeschooling families are welcomed.
Services: I offer individual, couple, and group sessions. Also, offered in person or through telehealth.
Alexis’ message: Specializing in ADHD, anxiety and depression. There are times when maybe you feel like it is difficult to fit in with others, which can make us feel down, or feel anxious to show others who you really are. Working with a counselor is beneficial because they have your best interest in mind and meet you where you are to assist in your progress towards a more authentic you.
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.
Licensed psychologist in Florida, Montana, North Dakota, New York, and South Dakota.
Services: My practice is almost completely telehealth – I can do in-person for evaluations that can’t be done virtually (like if someone needs an IQ test for disability services or something) for those local to me in SIoux Falls, South Dakota. I do individual and family therapy as well as diagnostic evaluations. I have done groups in the past but don’t have any going right now.
Amy’s message: I incorporate evidence-based interventions as well as a client-centered approach to therapy that empowers YOU to be in charge of your treatment. My practice is trauma-informed, which means that I recognize the prevalence of trauma in the general population and take steps to create a comfortable environment that feels safe and empowering for all clients. All of my sessions are conducted via telemental health using HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing through Zoom. I believe each client is the expert on themselves. As a psychologist, I can offer insight into symptoms and mental health diagnoses, but no one knows you and your experience better than you. In addition, my psychology practice emphasizes social justice, cultural competence, and LGBTQ+ affirming care.

Rachel’s message: I am a neurodiversity and LGBT+ affirming and identified provider. I value client choice and honor that each client is the expert in their own journey. My work is informed by attachment and neuroscience, exploring how past hurts affect the way your brain functions today. I understand that everyday experiences of oppression create complex trauma over time. I therefore use a trauma-informed approach. Some modalities we may use together include EMDR, feminist therapy, CBT, psychoeducation and holistic coaching depending on your preferences.
Services: Individual and couples therapy, 100% Telehealth. Ages 13 and up.
Carmen’s message: I am a trauma-informed psychotherapist with personal and professional experience working with neurodivergent people, as well as other groups facing discrimination in our society. I understand the unique challenges affecting the neurodivergent population, including vulnerability to experience trauma, dismissal and invalidation throughout their lives. This often results in Complex PTSD, anxiety and difficulties regarding trusting themselves and others. Using a strengths-based, neurodiversity-affirming approach, I help autistic/ADHD people live safely and authentically in the world, knowing how to set boundaries and communicate their needs effectively. I help them honor their energy patterns to avoid anxiety and burnout, help them process their traumatic experiences and help create more accurate narratives of those events. It is important for me to create a strong therapeutic alliance, in which my clients feel seen, heard and safe. I always welcome honest feedback and I strive to be a better clinician with each passing year. I am 100% bilingual in Spanish and English.

J.D.’s message: Hi, I go by J.D. and am a neurodivergent therapist and a queer therapist. I work with teens (16 and older) and adults with various mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, and trauma. I particularly enjoy working with LGBTQIA+ clients and have experience working with transgender individuals to help them become their true selves. I use a person-centered approach with all my clients, where they are the expert in the room. This approach also allows for a neurodiverse-affirming environment. I have training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) as well as Intimacy from the Inside Out (IFIO), which is IFS for couples.
Therapy works best when you relate to and trust your therapist. I use my training, education and lived experience to support you through the challenges you face and reach the goals that you identify for yourself. You are the expert on yourself and my role is to provide a safe space to grow, learn and most importantly accept who you are right now. I work with people who have felt like outsiders for a variety of reasons, such being Autistic, ADHD, Fat, traumatized, LGBTQ or part of other racial or cultural minorities. My approach is to acknowledge the systems that have made you an “other” while finding ways to affirm your identities and truly care for yourself and your needs.
