This program is designed to help all family members in the household, including grandparents or caregivers. The family will learn how to comfortably express their feelings, find better ways to communicate with each other, to solve problems effectively, identify and understand neurodivergence and to better address struggles in the home, school, workplace or out in the community. While defining clear goals and ways to support those goals, clinicians work closely with all family members. Sessions are focused on teaching the skills necessary to encourage the family as a whole to be better communicators and focus on a healthier way of living and a higher quality of life for the entire family.
We offer one on one individual therapy for all people. This includes neurodivergent individuals, neurotypicals, LGBTQIA+ or anyone that wishes to change their life and explore solutions.

Counseling for the Caregiver
Focus is placed on supporting the caregiver. Caregivers often feel overwhelmed, overextended, or alone. Oftentimes this is a step parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or extended family member who is unsure how to handle the intense behaviors, sensory difficulties or emotional issues that accompany caring for a neurodivergent child or adult. The caregiver is supported during private one-on-one counseling sessions. By getting the support you need, depression or anxiety can be reduced and replaced by understanding and self-care.
Sibling Art Group or Individual Therapy Session
We are taking a unique approach in working with siblings through a creative avenue. This group is run by our mental health director, Chrisa Sadd, LMFT along with Avivah Paskowitz, the daughter of the founders. Ms. Paskowitz is a very talented and creative sibling in a neurodivergent family. She knows first-hand how to navigate this world. This program offers support for the sibling of a neurodivergent child/adult. Often the sibling wonders why everything is focused on their brother or sister and not on them. They might feel that they don’t get enough time to do the things they want to do. Siblings may feel guilt or anger towards their brother or sister for always being the center of the parent’s attention. The participant will be able to express feelings through games and activities while attending group sessions, as well as finding comfort and support with a community of likeminded peers.
