Online Therapy for Autism or ADHD
You may have been diagnosed with autism or ADHD, and you want to start therapy or counseling with someone who really understands neurodiversity. It’s not as easy as it sounds, though. Perhaps you live in a big city, which can be exciting, but you have the hassle of traffic and trying to find a parking space. Or maybe you live in a small town, which can be lovely, but there might not be a lot of choices when it comes to mental health services. You might just be more comfortable getting your therapy online, from the comfort of your own home.
Online Therapy may be the solution you’re looking for.
You want high-quality, specialized, neurodiversity-affirming counseling services with someone who understands you, but you also need therapy that fits with your lifestyle.

We also offer counseling that is designed to support neurodivergent adults of all ages. Our counselors are kind, patient, and compassionate. They know there’s nothing wrong with having a different brain, so they won’t try to change who you are. They’re here to support you as you learn to cope with living in a neuro-majority world, and celebrate and value your own uniqueness. In fact, many of our therapists are autistic or ADHDers themselves. Through the use of a secure video chat, we’re able to offer you effective mental health services that meet your needs, without all the hassle of coming into a counseling office.
Benefits of Online Therapy
- Easy to use
Save Yourself Time
What could you do with a couple of extra hours? You probably wouldn’t choose to spend it in your car driving to and from your counseling sessions. Give yourself the luxury of therapy from home at no extra cost. The time you save is yours to spend as you choose.
Save Yourself Money
You don’t have to worry about the cost of gasoline and parking with online counseling through Adult Autism Assessment & Services. Save that extra money you would have spent traveling to your counselor’s office and spend it on whatever you like.
Save Yourself Stress
It’s stressful to go to a new place, find your way there the first time, get a place to park, and locate the office in a huge, busy office building. If being around a lot of people is difficult for you, online therapy can save you the stress of interacting with a receptionist and other people in the waiting room. Stay home and reduce stress by getting your counseling right from your own comfort zone.
Online Therapy for Autism
If you are autistic, you may have a strong preference for being in your own home rather than going out in public for an appointment. Many autistic people struggle with anxiety or depression related to being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world. Your autism and optimism may have left you open to trauma because you trusted easily, but not always wisely. You may have challenges related to social communications or relationships. It is important that you have a counselor who really understands neurodivergence on a personal level. You will never be judged in online therapy with Adult Autism Assessment & Services, and you don’t have to mask with us. Come as you are, in your own safe space where you can be yourself, and find the support and acceptance you deserve.
Online ADHD Therapy
If you have ADHD, you might have trouble with executive functions such as organization, planning, and time management. That includes the planning it takes to make it to an appointment on time. You try to do everything, but then it all comes tumbling down. You’re smart, but it’s difficult to direct your brain to just what you need it to do, when the world is so full of fascinating things to explore. An online therapist can help you learn to take charge of your own brain, rather than following it down one rabbit hole after another. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with rabbit-hole research when you decide that’s what you want to do. It’s when it gets in the way of your life and relationships that it’s time to take back control. Let one of our counselors come alongside and help you live better with ADHD.
Online Therapy for Highly Sensitive Adults
The world can be a sensory nightmare when you’re highly sensitive. You might become easily overwhelmed by sounds, visual distractions, smells, textures, or any number of sensory experiences. How can you keep sensory overload from spiraling into a meltdown? Online counseling with one of our specialists may be just what you need. You don’t have to leave home and risk getting overloaded when you have online counseling, and you can learn strategies to help you cope with your super-senses.
Is Online Therapy Effective?
Many people see a huge benefit from online counseling. Autistic adults have grown to accept and appreciate their unique brains, and celebrate the wonder of their neurodivergence, while also learning to let down their masks and live their lives as they choose. Adults with ADHD have taken control of their time and goals rather than being pulled away by every sparkly thing or squirrel that crosses their path. Highly sensitive adults have developed coping strategies to let them participate in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it. What do you want to get out of online therapy?
