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.

Leah’s message: I provide individual, virtual therapy to adults and older teens looking to figure out who they are. I specifically focus on those who are recently diagnosed or suspect they are neurodivergent, and help them explore their newly discovered neurotype. As someone who didn’t know they were ND until adulthood, I understand the excitement of having a term for why you never really fit in, alongside the sadness over lost time when you were trying to fit into a neurotypical mold. I’m here to help you unmask (when safe to do so) and be your authentic self.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with endorsements for telehealth in Florida and South Carolina
Offers individual teletherapy services via video or audio
I’m an AuDHD counselor, born and raised in Texas. I currently live off the Caprock in Texas, and my roots lie in this and other areas of the state that often lack quality counseling services. This is the reason I’ve chosen to provide online counseling services. I’ve also found that many neurodivergent clients enjoy and prefer online services because of the reduction in hassle of commuting to an office, as well as the ability to be in surroundings that are comfortable and familiar while engaging in therapy.
I have worked with a wide and inclusive range of neurodivergent clients on issues such as trauma, depression, substance use, stress and anxiety, gender and sexual identity, and many others. My approach is client-centered, which means that I believe that the therapeutic relationship between counselor and client is the most important aspect of therapy. Beyond that, my tools are cognitive behavioral in nature, with a heavy emphasis on mindfulness skills and self-compassion.
In 2021, I became a Certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist (CASDCS) after learning about the unique ways in which many females, non-binary, and transmen (and many men and transwomen as well!) experience being autistic (including myself). I later became similarly certified for ADHD as an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider (ADHD-CCSP). Both of these particular programs provide information about autism and ADHD from the clinical perspective, rather than through the lens of neurodiversity, to be sure.
While I am trained in the clinical perspective, I have fully embraced the neurodiversity movement. I do not look at autism or ADHD as “pathology,” but rather as natural and normal ways of existing as human beings (which also can bring struggles due to existing in a society structured for neurotypical brains). I enjoy teaching neurodivergent clients about neurodiversity concepts because of the healing that it brings.
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.
