neurodiverse couples therapy & coaching

When one or both partners in a relationship is neurodivergent, it can be difficult to resolve conflict, cohabitate, co-parent, and communicate effectively. 

At Spectrum Services, our couples therapists and coaches are here to help you navigate your unique relationships.

Many clients come to us having already tried couples counseling, often reporting that it has been ineffective, and sometimes even made matters worse.

The key difference when working with a trained neurodiverse couples therapist or coach is that we understand that therapy must be catered to your and your partners neurotypes; we will work with you to help you finally feel understood and supported both in the therapeutic setting and in your relationships.

Understanding neurodivergence goes a long way in helping couples align and see themselves as a team working against the hurdle of missed cues and attunement, rather than against each other.

It takes a lot of courage to seek help. We applaud you for being here and for taking this next step forward.
