Autism

I work with women who were diagnosed with autism and those who are questioning if they might be autistic.

 

Many autistic women go unseen and undiagnosed for years.

 

Why?

 

The standards for diagnosing autism are based on studies and observations of white boys.

 

Turns out, autism presents itself differently in women.

 

I hold a neurodivergent view of autism, that classifies autism as a difference in brain functioning, processing and learning than the average human , referred to as "neurotypicals."

Autism is not a disorder. It is a lived reality that has incredible benefits, as well as challenges.

 

I know because I am autistic.

 

I help clients to understand their autism, including their strengths, challenges, and all the messy middle.

 

We develop strategies and coping skills, heal old wounds (autistic people frequently experience shame, alienation, and trauma), and discuss  how to thrive as an autistic person in a neurotypical world.
