Neurodiverse Couples Therapy

Why is Therapy Important For Neurodiverse Couples?

It’s not uncommon for couples to have relationship difficulties when one partner has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the other is Neurotypical (NT). Often each person views the relationship in quite different ways, particularly how they communicate, experience and express emotions, and build intimacy.

The Process I Use in Neurodiverse Couple Therapy

If, as a couple, you are interested in working with me, here is what I recommend:

Contact Me

I would like you to first email me a description of the challenges you are having in your relationship and what you would like to accomplish in couples therapy.

Couple's Meeting

I would then meet with both of you together for an initial session to discuss those challenges and what it is that is getting in the way of forming the relationship you both want.

Individual Meetings

The next step is for me to meet with each of you for one individual session to learn about your family background and early relationship history, in order to understand the basis for the expectations, needs, and goals you have regarding your current partner and relationship.

Ongoing Therapy

Then, I would work with the two of you to clarify and overcome the obstacles that are in the way of forming a happy and successful relationship. We would periodically assess your progress toward this goal and modify our work together accordingly.

The Cost of Neurodiverse Couple Therapy

My fee is $250 per session. Please note that all payments are made directly to me. I do not bill insurance companies for my services. However, I can give you a superbill with all the necessary information for you to submit a claim for direct reimbursement. Should you choose to use your insurance benefits, I strongly recommend that  you check with your carrier beforehand to assess your coverage for couples therapy.
