Are you struggling to connect with others or feel alone? Perhaps this leads to frustration or alienation. Or maybe you find yourself frequently putting others' needs above your own, to the point where you feel run-down and emotionally exhausted. You may be facing a major life change or decision, either for yourself or for your family. In these situations, it can be challenging to tap into your own thoughts or cope with overwhelming emotions. It can be hard to know where to start, but you don't have to do it on your own!

Orli Firestein Practice Description
I partner with clients as an ally and collaborator, viewing therapy as an opportunity to gain better self-understanding and acceptance while dismantling oppressive and hurtful beliefs projected onto clients by themselves or others. Many of my clients discover that they are neurodivergent later in life and have a desire to better understand themselves, their identity, and their lived experiences through this lens. Frequently explored themes in sessions include autistic burnout, managing executive functioning challenges, and compassion fatigue. Over time, clients will begin to identify and communicate what they need from others and themselves in order to feel content and supported.
