When I began this group in April 2015 at the request of several clients (and the insistence one wonderful lady), I had no idea where it would lead. The group far exceeded the few expectations/hopes that I had.  It has been a joy to facilitate this group and see the delight that it brings to the participants as they connect and share their struggles.

The participants, mainly women with a few men, have found such relief in being able to talk with others who share the challenges of a “neuordiverse” relationship.  Many have found the group helpful to improving both their relationship and their own health.

A few of the topics we covered  included:

  • Coping with the holidays and family gatherings
  • Disclosing the diagnosis
  • How to cope with silence and loneliness
  • Self care strategies
  • Kids on the spectrum or with features
  • Resources both online and locally
  • Communication strategies
  • Healthy outlets for emotions
  • Getting your needs met

I am not currently offering these monthly support groups.
