Not all individuals want or need an official diagnosis of autism, especially if they do not intend to ask for accommodations from a college, university, or employer. I can guide these people in informed self-assessment, saving them an expense which can sometimes be a financial hardship as well as what can be a long wait time until evaluation.

My consultation services for formally diagnosed or self-diagnosed individuals can enrich your practice and your patients' experiences. Much like mindfulness or meditation coaches, yoga instruction, or equine programs, I offer an option for people for whom traditional therapy is not necessary or desired. By helping to connect your patients on the spectrum to me, you allow them the benefits that this adjunct resource can uniquely provide.
