Therapy->Parents of Children with Autism
In counseling sessions, you'll have the opportunity to work on the goals that will most help you. As your autism mental health professional, I maintain a nonjudgmental space in which to explore your concerns and worries about your child's development. You'll have the opportunity to learn about the relationship between autism and anxiety, and how anxiety might impact your child's emergence into adulthood. I am uniquely positioned to provide counseling to parents of neurodiverse children with autism. Why? Because of my vast personal experience working with my son on the autism spectrum utilizing ABA, social skills training, and self-regulation skills, as well as, my professional experience counseling other parents and leading an Autism Parent Support Group. Where tensions run high, counseling can help you learn new ways to communicate with your child that will support their growth and help build their confidence, as well. Most important, you'll be encouraged to develop your own strategies for managing worry and stress. I utilize a variety or approaches, tailored just for you, including internal family systems therapy (IFS), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and person-centered therapy. Some common concerns include anxiety, social anxiety, depression, grief, isolation, work-life challenges, worry about your child’s future and the ability to function independently, safety, worry about your child not having friends, being bullied/being taken advantage of, low motivation, self-advocacy skills, transition to adulthood concerns, stress, and caregiver burnout.
