Do you have a disorder from the autism spectrum, or suspect you might be autistic? Do you want psychotherapy that includes your autism?

I will of course be happy to respond to emails also.
I have a deep understanding of the peculiarities of people of all ages on the autism spectrum. I am taking your individual areas of concern seriously and will treat these in a manner tailored to you, no matter what they might be.
We can work well on social skills, dealing with stimulus satiation and lack of routine in an individual setting, however group therapy to work on social skills on a deeper level may be possible in the future.
I look forward to supporting you.
