Dr. Melody Abbene (she/hers)

  • Clinical psychologist licensed in California and Texas (CA PSY29249, TX 38786)
  • Providing teletherapy throughout California and Texas for autistic adults, adult ADHD-ers, adults with chronic illness, and adults adjusting to a new disability.
  • Melody’s message: “I’m Dr. Melody Abbene, a neurodivergent clinical psychologist licensed in California (PSY29249) and Texas (38786). I am passionate about working with neurodivergent adults of all ages, particularly autistic adults and adult ADHD-ers. I have expertise in anxiety, depression, trauma, disordered eating, chronic pain, chronic illness, and adjustment to disability. I also have an understanding of the nuanced discrimination that individuals with neurodivergencies and both apparent and non-apparent disabilities face on a regular basis, and I aim to support my clients in coping with these stressors and reaching a place of empowerment. I am deeply committed to approaching care in a compassionate and collaborative manner. I am not interested in imposing my beliefs about what my clients’ lives should look like. Instead, I take the time to gain an understanding of who they are, their cultural backgrounds, where their values and strengths lie, and what motivates them in order to support them in building and maintaining lives of meaning and fulfillment, regardless of circumstances. Using a combination of therapeutic strategies, I tailor treatment to each individual.”

Christine Henry, Ph.D.

Dr. Christine Henry (she/her)

  • Licensed Psychologist (Texas 35103) and PSYPACT Certified
  • Services: Teletherapy for adults (25+) both individual and group therapy.
  • Dr. Henry’s message: I work with adults (25+) who are able to have strong connections to animals but struggle in their relationships with people. My clients come to me after trying everything they can to help themselves such as reading self-help books and listening to podcasts but still feel stuck. They typically have a trauma history and despite being in therapy have symptoms that persist. After watching you tube videos and TikTok’s they start to wonder if they are autistic or ADHD. Together we tease apart what is trauma and what is being Neurodivergent. With this new understanding we process how to move forward with this new identity in a neurotypical world. I offer online therapy which allows clients to be in the comfort of their own home or office. If they have pets, it can feel nice to have them by their side as they process difficult emotions in session. Besides my clinical focus I also have lived experience being late diagnosed as being Neurodivergent myself. This is in addition to living with my twice exceptional daughter with PDA, my ADHD son, and my ADHD/Autistic partner.

Emily Adler, LMSW (she/they)

  • LMSW in Austin, TX (USA), supervised by Arlene Montgomery.
  • Services: Individual and couples/polycule counseling for teens (16+), adults, and older adults. May be offering groups in the future. Currently virtual only. Accepting clients virtually from anywhere in the state of Texas.
  • Emily’s message: Nice to meet you! My name is Emily and I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in Austin, TX. Whether you are brand new to therapy or have years of experience, I look forward to helping you on the next part of your journey! Although we haven’t met yet, I accept you exactly as you are. As a Autistic and ADHD individual myself, I love working with neurodivergent clients, which includes (but is not limited to) those with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, Tourette’s syndrome, dyspraxia, and learning disabilities. I also love working with HSPs (highly sensitive people) and individuals with physical disabilities. I do not pathologize clients; instead I focus on their strengths and their unique, valuable insights. I encourage my clients to switch away from the mindset of “something’s wrong with me.” Instead we focus on the struggles created by living in a society that was not built with us in mind, and find support and coping techniques that are less taxing. I particularly love working with individuals on identity exploration, self-esteem, life transitions, grief and loss, relationships, time and stress management, and autonomy. I also love incorporating geek therapy or other interests when clients are interested! Feel free to reach out to me for a free consultation if you’re interested in learning more. I’d love to chat with you and hear more about your goals for therapy. You can schedule a consultation by emailing, texting, or calling me at the contacts below. Looking forward to speaking with you!

Sam Accettulli

Sam Accettulli, LPC, LCDC (she/her)

  • LPC and LCDC in Texas
  • Services: Individual, both in-person and teletherapy
  • Sam’s message: Life can be overwhelming. It’s easy to become trapped in the complex web of roles we have to play. I’m here to help you discover what matters most and assist you with discovering new tools and strengths that can help you break out of old patterns. I take a collaborative approach to counseling that harnesses your expert knowledge of yourself and your life and my supportive and curious perspective. I am neurodivergent myself and have a unique perspective into what it means to navigate a world that doesn’t always feel accepting. I take a systems focus in therapy and look to other factors in the world that might be affecting you outside of your immediate ecosystem. I have experience working with adolescents and adults on a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, self-esteem and self-worth, body image issues, chronic health issues, issues related to neurodivergence, and managing the day-to-day stresses of life. We’ll work collaboratively to assess your goals and needs and make sure that we are gearing therapy towards what you are most interested in versus what anybody else thinks is best!

Natalie Furdek

Natalie Furdek, M.Ed., LPC, CASDCS, ADHD-CCSP (she/her)

  • 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.

Lindsay Clegg

Lindsay Clegg, LPC-A (she/her)

  • Services: individual (adults), family & couples
  • Settings: In-person, virtual, & hybrid options available
  • Lindsay’s message: Many neurodivergent folx grow up feeling confused about why so many aspects of life have been messy and exhausting. Relationships can seem unpredictable, work can be impossible or all-consuming, and sometimes navigating everyday life presents obstacles that others do not seem to relate to. So how do you reach a place where you’re finally at peace? Where you are not over-exerting yourself just to meet neurotypical standards? You can work on skills in socializing, organization, focus, flexibility, etc. in the short term. But when you really understand yourself and what you need; self-acceptance becomes an unshakable calm force — it makes every day feel safer. Your narrative does not need to be based on the demands of a system that is failing you. In therapy, we can discuss designing a lifestyle that allows you to be your best self. Comfortable, authentic, and in control of your own self-perception. This doesn’t mean giving up on relationships, jobs, and responsibilities. It means designing life on purpose with comfort, self-love, and self-advocacy paving the way.

Dan Daumas

Dan Daumas, LPC (they/them and he/him)

  • Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC #85470) in Texas
  • Services: Individual counseling for adolescents and adults; I only offer virtual/telehealth appointments at this time; private pay only as I do not currently take insurance.
  • Dan’s message: I am an openly transgender, non-binary, queer, autistic, and disabled therapist licensed in Texas. I specialize in issues relating to gender, sexuality, autism, and adhd. I am enthusiastic about promoting acceptance and advocating for the neurodiverse/neuroqueer community. While I have a passion for serving the queer and gender expansive community, I welcome clients from all backgrounds and experiences. As someone who is Autistic and disabled by the systems of inaccessibility and disparity we are forced to operate in, I have a unique understanding of some of the challenges faced by neurodivergent and disabled individuals. I offer guidance for managing concerns related to executive functioning, sensory processing, and tools for recognizing signs of shutdown, meltdown, and burnout. Additionally, I have experience in working with disabled individuals and those living with chronic pain/illness. Given my personal experience with chronic pain/illness, I strive to provide clients with a space to safely process and receive validation around their own experience of disability. I am dedicated to continue unlearning my own internalized ableism and to address ableist perspectives that dominate the narratives around disability. I pull from a variety of theoretical orientations based on the clients’ unique challenges and needs. That being said, my values best align with Humanistic and Mindfulness approaches (such as Person Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and Narrative Therapy. I work from a trauma-informed lens and strongly believe in the power of compassion when it comes to healing.

Madison Filar

Madison Filar, LPC-A (She/They)

  • Licensure: LPC-Associate under the supervision of Odette Tomlinson, LPC-S in Texas
  • Services: Individual, families, teletherapy, in-person, and play therapy
  • Madison’s message: I enjoy working with clients with diverse lived experiences and work most effectively with neurodivergent clients. I operate within the neurodiversity paradigm, recognizing neurodivergence as a component of identity, rather than pathology. Together we may explore depression, anxiety, trauma, gender and sexual identity, relationship dynamics, life transitions, burnout, perfectionism, people-pleasing tendencies, or boundary-setting, among other patterns. My approach is strengths-based, trauma-informed, and person-centered, meaning that I treat each client as the expert of their own life and emphasize the importance of the therapeutic relationship.
    • In 2023, I became certified in AutPlay therapy, a unique play therapy framework created by neurodivergents, with neurodivergent children in mind. This framework emphasizes that no child needs therapy because they are neurodivergent, rather they need therapy when they have specific mental health needs. I continually seek out training and supervision to help me in my work addressing trauma.
    • As a self-identified, queer AuDHD provider, I believe in the validity of self-identification/diagnosis. I am happy to work with neurodivergent clients, regardless of their formal diagnostic status. I believe that for us to make significant changes in our lives, we must each feel safe and understood. Taking the first step to pursuing therapy can be intimidating, especially with lived experience of neurodivergence. Wherever you end up, I hope you will find someone who will hold space for all the complexities of your life. I would be honored to open that space to you.
