Services: Online Psychotherapy for Adults | Private Pay (Reduced Fee Option), Connections Consultation (1x educational focused meeting) around 20 different topics around grief, neurodiversity, and neurodivergent living.
Liz’s message: The services I offer are all created from the belief that the relationship we develop with ourselves is the foundation from which we live and relate. The space we create together can help you learn how to befriend your nervous system and neurotype(s), change stories, cycles, and patterns that no longer serve you, and lean into your unique needs, gifts, interests, and truths. I welcome you to explore my site further and see what part of you needs more connection.
Shared Identities: Cis female ADHDer with learning differences self-diagnosed and then formally diagnosed in adulthood | Parent and spouse in a multi-neurodivergent family (Autism & ADHD) | Artist & Photographer | Intuitive Empath
Licensure: Prelicensed clinician in the state of Massachusetts pursuing my LMHC. Masters of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology.
Services: I offer individual teletherapy and accept both insurance and private pay at this time. Starting 9/1/2023, I will accept BCBS, Aetna, Cigna, and Optum plans (Harvard Pilgrim, UHC, etc.) at Balanced Learning Center. Balanced Learning Center is a non profit, so I am able to provide low to no cost therapy to clients who have financial or insurance related barriers with treatment.
Shared Identities: Queer, Trans / Non-Binary / Agender, Autistic & Multiply Neurodivergent, Asexual, and Disabled
Jules’ message: I offer Neurodiversity Affirming Care to the LGBTQIA+ community through utilizing the Neurodiversity paradigm in my clinical work. I believe that anti-racist, non-pathologizing, intersectional, anti-ableist / anti-oppressive, trauma, and social justice informed care are crucial to being an affirming provider to marginalized communities. My lived experience with disability, gender / sexuality exploration, and neurodivergence significantly informs how I practice. I primarily specialize in working with Adults age 25+ who are engaging in identity exploration and burnout recovery, preparation, and prevention. I love working with folks who are late diagnosed / self-realized as well as those exploring if they are Autistic or ADHD.
Halley’s message: “I just don’t fit in.” “No one understands me.” “I feel so alone.” Have you ever had these thoughts? If so, you aren’t the only one. You deserve to feel accepted for who you are.
When society doesn’t value what makes you unique it can cause distress and trauma leading to depression, anxiety, chronic stress, substance use, health problems, and lowered life expectancy. BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, female, Neurodivergent, and disabled folks are far more likely to report adverse experiences and are at greater risk for negative outcomes.
You are the expert on your own life. I wish to partner WITH you to help you feel better. I will personalize and tailor our work based upon your needs, interests, and goals. I believe therapy should be engaging so I often engage clients in playing games, TTRPGs, art, music, and movement in sessions.
When you aren’t, you need someone who can listen and help you heal. As an affirming, collaborative, and knowledgeable therapist I can help you.
Credentials: LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor) in Massachusetts (#9278, currently valid through 12/31/23) and ECMH-E® (Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist Endorsement) through Massachusetts Association for Infant Mental Health
Services: Counseling for young children and their caregivers, support group for parents of ND teenagers
Katherine’s message: I have a passion for working with neurodivergent children, including those with suspected or confirmed Autism or ADHD as well as those experiencing challenges with social interactions or self-regulation who may not have any particular “diagnosis”. One of my main goals is to also support parents and caregivers as they learn more about the unique ways in which their child interprets and interacts with their world. I view my work as a collaborative process and strive to truly connect with each child and family, creating a safe space for reflection and growth.
Offering: individual telehealth sessions for ages 12+
Amanda’s message: I am a Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and Mental Health Counselor offering tele-therapy services and specializing in neurodiversity and gender affirming care. I believe that the most important aspects of a counseling partnership are trust, understanding and being truly seen. As a result, my sessions tend to be flexible and my clients are encouraged to attend in ways that make them feel most comfortable (as long as it’s safe). If that means pacing or fidgeting, drawing, cuddling with a pet, having a snack or even playing games, I think there’s value in being physically comfortable. I don’t require eye contact, I won’t censor my client’s tone or language (I often swear myself), and unless an insurance requires visuals, cameras can be kept off for most or all of session when clients prefer. I have a strong personal connection with geek culture and love to support my clients’ explorations of hobbies, special interests and non-traditional social connections through understanding and enjoyment of pop culture, video games, cons, online forums, etc.
My approach to treatment is eclectic, applying aspects of CBT, Reality Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and Art Therapy depending on what each client needs in each meeting. I am trauma-informed and have experience treating anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, selective mutism, stress and medical trauma in addition to specializing in ADHD and ASD-I supports.
I invite new clients to reach out by email to schedule a consult call and to inquire about current insurances being accepted.
Services: Individual therapy that is trauma-informed, neurodivergent welcoming, and above all else, client (human)-centered, with modalities including IFS, Somatic/Embodied-Based Modalities, CBT/DBT/TFCBT, Yoga/Movement Therapy, Polyvagal-Informed Lens, and Individual Supervision.
Liz’s message: Many of the humans I work with hold at least one marginalized identity and are seeking support to manage the impact of trauma, depression, anxiety or help navigating various life transitions and interpersonal relationships. They are people who want to be seen, heard, and validated and to feel more peace and ease.
