    Neurodivergent Affirming Couples Therapy

    We recognize the unique challenges and strengths that come with neurodiverse relationships. Whether you’re neurodivergent (ND) or neurotypical (NT), or both partners are ND, navigating communication, social interactions, and processing differences can sometimes feel like speaking different languages. Our neurodivergent affirming couples therapy is designed to bridge these gaps, fostering a deeper understanding and connection between partners.

    Understanding Neurodiverse Relationships:
    Neurodiverse relationships, where one or both partners are neurodivergent, bring a rich tapestry of perspectives and experiences. However, these relationships can also encounter specific challenges:

    • Communication Differences: ND individuals might communicate their needs and emotions differently than NT partners, leading to misunderstandings.
    • Social Interaction Nuances: ND partners may experience social interactions differently, affecting relationship dynamics and social engagements as a couple.
    • Processing Information: The ways ND and NT partners process information can vary significantly, impacting decision-making and problem-solving.
    • Stress and Anxiety: ND partners might experience heightened stress and anxiety, influencing the relationship’s emotional landscape.
    • Facing Stigma: Societal stigma and discrimination can add external pressures, affecting the couple’s well-being and self-esteem.
