Total Spectrum Counseling offering family coaching for the neurodivergent

Brief virtual family coaching for the neurodivergent. This coaching service is offered worldwide. Those of us who have family members who are highly sensitive, ADHD, autistic, psychotic spectrum, etc are experiencing conflict as all of our sensory, energy, and social needs are clashing. It is essential that these needs be addressed before they create strife that can trigger terrible psychological experiences and/or emergencies. In just a few sessions, we can help you better survive and thrive during this period of isolation.

Total Spectrum Counseling believes is Nick Walker’s Golden Rule of Neurodiversity: Respect the bodily, sensory, and cognitive needs of others as you would want your own to be respected, whether or not you understand the reasons for those needs.

By leading with this, we create a space to talk non-judgmentally and openly about clashing needs so that families can prepare to care for each other in these oft neglected ways and avoid psychological emergencies.

As the Corona Virus continues to spread, and anxieties increase, we want you to know we understand. People's health, livelihoods, friendships, and family members are at stake. We are willing to hear you out and we won't dismiss or judge your worries.

We are offering HIPAA compliant tele-therapy to those who need it in both California and Colorado. We are culturally sensitive neurodivergent therapists who specialize in working with neurodivergent and nuerotypical people with all sorts of difficulties.

Reframing
ADHD

I recently joined a Facebook support group for adults with ADHD (which I have). I have been very saddened to see that so many there see themselves as deficient and that medications are the only answer to their problems.

Disorganized Attachment

Many clients who end up in the therapeutic chair or couch are impacted by a disorganized attachment style. Disorganized attachment serves as a diathesis (risk factor)

Autistic Females - Hidden for Too Long

While it is true that there seems to be many more autistic males than females, new research combined with testimonials of many hidden autistic women suggest that the sex-gap may be narrowing. The diagnostic criteria for identifying autism in the DSM is highly male-centric.
