Kate’s message: “I see individual adults (18+) and couples. I also work with parent-adult child relationships. I provide diagnostic services and therapy from an autistic-centered perspective. I am autistic, strengths-based and affirming of neurodivergence. Two of my books have been published, Love & Asperger’s ( title was determined by publisher; I use the term Autism) and Parenting Adult Children. I’m certified as a Gottman Relationship Therapist and as an AASECT Sex Therapist.”
Licensed psychologist in Florida, Montana, North Dakota, New York, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
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.

Sydney’s message: My clients have many different kinds of diagnoses (or none at all) and are seeking a skilled and compassionate confidant in their pursuit of post traumatic growth. My work is rooted in a deep commitment to learning, listening and teaching as much as I can about the way our minds, bodies and hearts respond to stress. I love working with neurodivergent clients to help them better understand and heal their nervous systems and to come up with and implement practical strategies for managing life. I entered the world of mental health as a disability focused activist and a social worker. Intersectional feminist therapy is part of my training. I work to continue pursuing education anti-racism, gender identity, and more. I want all parts of you to feel welcome in therapy.
Services: Teletherapy for individuals 18+, private pay only.
I work with late-identified and late-diagnosed ADHD, Autistic, and AuDHD adults along their journey towards self understanding and self acceptance. Through our work together, clients can expect to reconsider old narratives and long held beliefs that may have disempowered or caused harm to their self esteem. With each client, I adjust my therapeutic approach around the current needs or goals of the individual. This may include: exploring and accommodating your sensory needs, strengthening self advocacy skills, boundary work, energy management coaching, scripting and self-expression. I also provide a great deal of psychoeducation around holistic ADHD management, and the various traits, experiences and intersectional identities that often co-occur with ADHD and/or Autism.
I enthusiastically support those who self-identify, as I believe nobody knows your brain better than you. If you are neurodivergent, neurocurious, queer or simply trying to figure it out; my hope is that you find belonging here.
Rachel’s message: I do psychoanalytic work primarily with late diagnosed autistic adults, helping them recognize and disrupt the patterns in their lives that no longer serve them so they can re-orient to the past, ground themselves in the present, and embrace their unique future. The aim of my practice is to provide a space for neurodiversity to grow and transform what mental health care can be for autistic people.
