Are you looking for a holistic approach to counseling with a counselor who understands Autism and neurodiversity? Does your child with Autism need some help with emotional regulation and self-expression?
Through an individualized approach and an awareness of sensory needs, we can use Art Therapy to build on strengths and enhance communication and connection through creativity. Autism impacts the mind, body, and senses and so the holistic nature of Art Therapy makes sense. Depending on an individual’s goals, sessions often include support for self-regulation, increased flexibility, social communication, and for decreasing stress, anxiety, and depression.
Often those that I work with already have art as a special interest. We use the art in session as a focal point of shared attention and starting point to work on goals and grow in connection and communication from there.
