For parents, counseling can help them navigate the world of ASD treatments through the many financial, emotional, and physical stressors they face.
We specialize in offering individual and couple counseling for those with social skills impairments, social or general anxiety, and individuals with a diagnosis of ASD, their siblings, parents or care providers. We have extensive experience with these concerns as they are expressed across the lifespan and we work with children, adolescents and adults.
We are passionate about providing quality support to parents to help them navigate treatment and services and improve their confidence in their parenting skills and decision making. Our counselors are skilled at combining their knowledge of practical behavior management and interpersonal therapeutic support to address practical and emotional challenges facing parents. Whether clients are interested in weekly sessions or wish to schedule once a month or “as needed” sessions, we are available. Sessions may be scheduled for individuals or couples.
Additionally, we offer relationship and sex education for teens and young adults with ASD. We provide a safe and engaging environment to learn about and discuss important information related to relationships, anatomy, sexual behavior, abuse, self-advocacy, contraception, and appropriate boundaries.
