What About Coexisting Disorders?

Do you, your student, or loved one have two or more coexisting disorders?

Most of our clients have received more than one diagnosis (Autism and anxiety, for instance), so do not let that deter you from seeking help. We will collaborate with your team of professionals or work with you to develop a team that will collaborate to find solutions.

Our services are client-centered, meaning we focus on our client’s goals and dreams while steadily helping them develops skills to achieve self-reliance, confidence, and resilience.

We will provide solutions to everyday problems with positivity and compassion. Success does not come easily, but small improvements can be experienced all along the way—and those small changes add up to make big differences!

When you’re ready, we’ll move forward. Every client is different, and we celebrate what makes every one of them unique.
