Registered Psychotherapist, Psychology and Coaching Clinics
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopment disorder that impairs a person’s ability in communication, interpersonal interactions, and as a result, daily functioning. ASD can usually be detected within the first 3 years of life, during early childhood development. The effects of ASD can differ from person to person depending on the severity of their condition, their development level, and their age. Asperger syndrome is a disorder on the Autism Spectrum, that affects a person’s functional and social development. These people often find it challenging to work in collaborative and busy environments and thus require a lot of support from people close to them.

Registered Psychotherapist, Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology
I work with high functioning individuals with Autism/Asperger's and try to help them manage their anxiety while learning social norms that might be a challenge for them. Many people lose sight of the fact that a person with Austim/Asperger's has the potential to fit into society and thrive. What they sometimes need is a person to help them navigate their way.

Our team has developed expertise in providing autism spectrum assessments for children and teenagers, aged 6-16. An accurate assessment is crucial in developing a comprehensive understanding of your child's unique strengths and challenges, which guides the course of tailored therapeutic approaches. We understand that these conditions can present unique challenges, affecting every aspect of a child's life, from social interaction and communication to flexibility in thought and behavior. These challenges can often lead to feelings of frustration, misunderstanding, and isolation, not just for the individuals diagnosed, but also for their parents and family members. We provide therapy services for individuals with high functioning Autism and Asperger's syndrome. Our services are pivotal in enhancing the lives of young individuals with these conditions and providing much-needed support for their families. We implement a variety of therapeutic approaches tailored to each individual's unique needs, focusing on social skills training, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and parent coaching. Our treatments aim to improve communication skills, enhance social interaction, foster independence, and encourage personal growth. For parents, we offer guidance and strategies to better understand and support your child’s unique needs. We provide resources and education, helping you navigate the complexities of these conditions and become your child's best advocate. Our aim is to help your child navigate life with Autism or Asperger's Syndrome, not just manage, but to flourish and thrive.
