What is Autism Spectrum?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder associated with persistent challenges in reciprocal social communication and social interaction as well as restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests or activities. These challenges vary in severity with each individual, which is why it is often referred to as a spectrum. ASD symptoms are typically present from very early childhood. Often times, these symptoms create difficulty in executive functioning and adaptive skills as well as communication and even cognitive functioning.

Therapeutic intervention across multiple disciplines is proven very effective for living life on the spectrum.

Comprehensive ASD Evaluation

My evaluation process requires 3 appointments which are typically scheduled and completed within 2-4 weeks.

These sessions are helpful in processing neurodivergent thought patterns, increasing self-esteem, developing mindful routines as well as practicing social communication and interaction skills.

I was diagnosed with OCD and depression at 15 years old, I remember feeling so alone. I grew up and made it my mission to create a space that could make others feel included.
