Stephanie Adams Mendez, PHD, NCSP (she/her)

  • Licensed Psychologist PSY-CA-31678 in California and 048.0134528TELE in Vermont, USA
  • Services: Individual, family, telehealth therapy and assessment
  • Stephanie’s message: I provide therapy and assessment services that help clients better understand themselves and how to advocate for their needs in an ableist, difficult world. I utilize a neurodiversity affirming approach to helping clients ages 5 through adulthood. The vast majority of my clients have overlapping neurodivergent identities and diagnoses (Autism, ADHD, OCD). Much of my research and clinical work focuses on promoting family and school-based support for LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent youth. I also train professionals in clinics, hospitals, schools, and universities on how to provide culturally responsive neurodiversity- and gender-affirming care. Proudly representing lived experience as a queer, Latina ADHDer.

Rachel Filson (she/her)

  • Licensure: My main state is Florida (license # SW20555). I am also licensed as a telehealth-only provider in Vermont (089.0135007TELE) and SC (TLS 104 CP).
  • Services: I offer both in-person and virtual individual counseling services to adolescents and adults. In addition to talk therapy, I also offer EMDR.
  • 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.
