Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Supporting Neurodiversity: Adults

How can we help you?

At Thrive Counseling Center we strive to be transparent about the process of counseling.

We know that counseling is something that a lot of people feel hesitant to talk about, and resistant to share their experiences, which can lead to confusion and a lot of unknowns about the process. Especially if this is your first time considering working with a therapist.

Our goal is to demystify the counseling process and help you understand how counseling works.  

Below are some of the most common questions we are asked and some answers to get you started.  If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact us by email, or give us a call. 

Supporting Neurodiversity: Adults

Absolutely! At Thrive Counseling Center, we work hard to provide much-needed support to neurodiverse adults and their families. For many neurodiverse adults who are in a romantic relationship, this also means offering couples counseling. 

Partnerships with two neurotypical individuals face different challenges and roadblocks than partnerships where one or both partners have neurodiverse minds. Our counselors understand this, and we choose to offer neurodiverse couples therapy in Federal Way and online for people who want to strengthen their communication skills and have healthier, happier relationships. 

If you, your partner, or both of you identify as neurodiverse, there is a place for you here in our counseling office. 

Our counseling sessions can help you and your partner:

  • Embrace the neurodiversity in your relationship rather than hiding it or feeling ashamed
  • Both learn how to advocate for yourselves and ask for what you need in a neurodiverse relationship
  • Express your feelings in a way that both partners can understand and process
  • Learn to be patient with one another when situations are more challenging than they might be for a neurotypical couple

If you’ve been searching for “neurodiverse couples counseling near me” in Federal Way, we can help. Our counseling team is accepting new clients and can schedule couples counseling for you and your partner either in-person or via telehealth, depending on which is more comfortable and convenient for you. 

To get started, please call us at (206) 567-7267 or send us a text at (206) 659-1153 today.

At Thrive Counseling Center, we regularly provide counseling for neurodiverse adults in Federal Way, WA. 

Challenges Neurodiverse Individuals Face

Because living in a largely neurotypical society can be challenging to those with neurodiverse minds, our team of counseling professionals works hard to develop treatment and coping strategies to help neurodiverse individuals navigate the complexities of life. We accomplish this by focusing our therapies on common areas of concern such as romantic relationships, friendships, independent living, and the workplace. 

Our goal is that our counseling for neurodiverse adults will help those individuals feel:

  • Supported
  • Confident
  • Educated 
  • Capable
  • Trusted
  • Respected 

We offer therapy sessions both for neurodiverse adults and their loved ones so that everyone can gain a better understanding of neurodiversity and come to truly appreciate the role it plays in their relationships.

Working with Families of Neurodiverse Individuals

We work with families, couples, friends, and parents who want to improve the way they communicate and learn more about how neurodiverse adults view the world. We teach those with neurodiversity how to more effectively engage with other members of society and how to improve the quality of their interactions with their peers.

Because we celebrate neurodiversity and see it as a gift, we offer counseling from a unique perspective that helps strengthen neurodiverse relationships.
