Megan M. Matthews

Megan M. Matthews, LPCC, Certified Geek Therapist (she/her)

  • Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Certified Geek Therapist in Ohio
  • Offers individual therapy services in person and via teletherapy
  • Megan’s message: “As a neurodivergent person who also has invisible disabilities and disadvantages from being “non-mainstream” in other ways, I know from lived experience what it’s like to feel erased, and what it’s like to be different and yet be expected to behave as if I’m not. If you feel isolated and alone in your experience; if you don’t like who you are; if you like who you are but dislike the lack of acceptance you get from others in your life; or if you’re so tangled up in expectations – your own, other people’s, maybe both – that you don’t even KNOW who you are… I’ve been there. I see you. I hear you. And I’m here to help.”

Christina M. Scott

Christina M. Scott, LPCC-S (she/her)

  • Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor – Supervisor in Ohio (E. 1800755-SUPV), Nationally Certified Counselor (684571), Certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Specialist (688534), Certified Integrative Mental Health Practitioner (123434), Registered Play Therapist (T5230)
  • Services: Individual Psychotherapy for adolescents/adults, Parent Consultation; teletherapy/online services for Ohio residents
  • Christina’s message: Online therapy works really well for many people, because it is convenient, accessible, and you are able to stay in your personal space, which is where you want to see changes happen! In my practice, I strive to create a space that is genuine, comfortable, and grounded in connection. I like to be integrative in my work with clients, pulling from frameworks like positive psychology, geek therapy, neuroscience, narrative therapy and other creative approaches. Clients often seek my services when traditional therapy has not proven beneficial, or they feel like something was missing. I tend to work with neurodivergent individuals, LGBTQIA+ persons, those who have have experienced trauma, and sleep disorders & dreamwork. Diagnosed as neurodivergent in my early 30s, and having experienced the associated self-discoveries and challenges, I enjoy working with late-diagnosed autistic/ADHD clients to help them explore and process life through a neurodiverse lens. Being a gender-affirming therapist is essential to my practice.

Lauren Strawn

Lauren Strawn, LISW (she/they)

  • Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio (License I.2203922)
  • Services: Individual telehealth for adults
  • Lauren specializes in working with other neurodivergent individuals with an emphasis on late in life ADHD and ASD diagnoses. As an Autistic/ADHD therapist, Lauren approaches therapy from the social model: you are not broken or damaged, but live in a world that has many oppressive systems in place. These systems can make it hard for anyone to truly thrive without accommodation and self-compassion, especially neurodivergent individuals who have a variety of unique sensory, social, and emotional needs.
  • Lauren also specializes in working with trans and gender diverse individuals and can provide WPATH letters of support for gender affirming surgeries. These specialties very frequently overlap, and Lauren is proud to provide competent and affirming care while acknowledging intersectionality.

Laurie Sparks-Dennison, LISW-S, RYT-200

  • I.1901512-SUPV Ohio/USA
  • Offering individual, family, group, 100% teletherapy, parent and professional consultation.
  • Laurie’s message: Hey, I’m Laurie and I’m a neurodivergent therapist. I’ve always been drawn to other humans who march to the beat of their own drum. I approach support through a trauma-informed, neurodivergent/ gender-affirming and culturally sensitive lens and my goal is to meet people where they’re at and help clients to build a life that’s meaningful to them. I’m also fully EMDR and Reiki I trained and a Registered Yoga Teacher with an obsession for making mindfulness feel accessible for everybody. I believe that autistic rights are human rights and all neurodivergent brains should be respected and valued. I look at therapy as a collaboration to support people in building a life that feels good to them by following their lead and magnifying their au-someness, rather than focusing on their challenges. I love supporting humans and families that are non-traditional and who choose to color outside of the lines. I am unschooling supportive, gender-affirming, always culturally seeking, and welcoming to LGBTQIA+ humans.

Michael “Alec” Ramsey

Michael “Alec” Ramsey, LMFT, IMFT (he/him)

  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Georgia and Licensed Independent Marriage and Family Therapist in Ohio
  • Services: Adult Population, Individual Therapy, Teletherapy Only
  • Alec’s message: I specialize in treating ADHD, PTSD, Addiction, Mood Disorders, and Grief. My early career was spent in Addiction Rehabilitation facilities where I learned that not only were all those folks suffering from mental health symptoms adjacent to addiction, but that I loved helping people heal from, solve, and/or manage those adjacent issues. I also learned about my own ADHD brain, and saw how pervasive the neurodivergent person was in the facilities I worked in. So, I got myself trained in EMDR to help people with trauma; I got myself trained in DBT to better target mood and personality issues; I read every book and attended every seminar I could find about ADHD; and I found as many adjacent trainings as I could to help a wide range of folks from Video Game addiction to Intuitive Eating to Grief. It is my aim to help people who are lost, confused, and/or overwhelmed. My clients show up with little to no understanding of their mental health or how to manage their emotions and behavior after a trauma or why they always fail to live up to expectation. Then, through collaborative effort and better understanding they leave my office with clarity and the tools to manage themselves in a way consistent with their own values and expectations.
  • For consultation requests:
  • I accept most major insurance providers. $125 per session out-of-pocket rate. Some sliding scale availability on request.
Levana Slabodnick

Levana Slabodnick, LISW-S, LCSW (she/her)

  • LISW-S, LCSW licensed in Ohio and Florida, USA
  • I offer individual therapy and telehealth
  • 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.

Natasha Brooks

Natasha Brooks, LPCC, LPC (she/hers)

  • Licensure: LPCC in Ohio, LPC in Pennsylvania
  • Services: Individual therapy and autism assessments for adults 18+ (telehealth only)
  • Natasha’s message: Therapy is the most effective when you feel seen and understood. I believe in a therapeutic process that is centered on positive rapport that we build through connection in a safe space where you are valued and respected. As a neurodivergent therapist, I often use my lived experience to build that integral connection. Most importantly, though, we’ll tap into what makes *you* feel connected and safe – humor, interests, experiences… whatever it might be, I’m here to listen and dive in with you.
    • I use an eclectic approach to therapy that entails bits and pieces of Cognitive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Person-Centered approaches. Working with folks to manage anxiety and panic is a big passion of mine. I also love to help folks through tough life changes surrounding relationships, work, and family. Being able to witness the moment where it “clicks” for clients when exploring neurodivergence and different aspects of identity is also particularly fulfilling! My practice will always be a space that is neurodiversity affirming, anti-racism, and an LGBTQIA+ ally.
    • I provide individual therapy for those 18+ living in Ohio and Pennsylvania. I do not contract with insurance companies, so all therapy sessions are private pay at a rate of $135 per session. I also offer autism assessments for adults. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, and I’ll be happy to help!
