Online Therapy in South Carolina for ADHD or Autism
Do you have autism or ADHD? Do you want to start counseling with someone who really understands your unique brain, but you’re not sure where to start? Maybe you live in Charleston or Columbia and you don’t want to deal with a long, busy commute trying to get to your therapy appointment. Perhaps you live in Belton, Monetta, or Moncks Corner, and you don’t have many options for mental health services. Or, it could be that you’re just a lot more comfortable getting counseling from the privacy of your own couch.
Online Therapy may be the solution you’re looking for.
You want specialized, quality counseling services with someone who really gets you, but you also need a solution that suits your lifestyle.

We also offer neurodiversity-affirming counseling and life coaching that is aimed to support neurodivergent adults of all ages. Our therapists are compassionate, caring, and kind. They understand that there’s nothing wrong with different kinds of brains or different ways of looking at the world.

There’s no worrying about the cost of gasoline and parking when you choose online therapy with Adult Autism Assessment & Services. You can put away that extra money you saved by not having to drive to your therapist’s office, and spend it however you wish.
What couldn’t you do with an extra hour or two? Spending it in your car traveling to and from therapy is probably not your idea of a good time. You deserve the luxury of therapy from home at no additional cost. The precious time you save is yours to enjoy.
It can be so stressful going to a new office for an appointment. First you have to find your way there, then figure out where you can park your car, and then find the right floor and office in a big, busy building. IF it’s stressful for you to be around a lot of people, talk to the receptionist, and sit with strangers in a waiting room, then online therapy is for you. Stay at home stress-free by getting your therapy online, anyplace you choose to be.
Online Therapy for Adults with ADHD in South Carolina
If you have ADHD, you might have difficulty with executive function tasks such as planning, organization, or time management. You can try to do it all, but eventually, there’s just too much on your plate, and it all falls down. You’re intelligent, but it’s hard to direct your mind to focus only on what you need it to get done. The world is so full of compelling topics to research and learn about. An online therapist can help you learn to take control of your brain, rather than following it down one random rabbit hole after another. Not that there’s anything wrong with rabbit-holes when you decide that’s how you want to explore. It’s when your distractibility gets in the way of the rest of your life and the people in it that you know it’s time to do something about it. Let one of our counselors help you live your best life with ADHD.

If you’re like many autistic adults, you may also have anxiety, depression, or PTSD. It’s not easy being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world.

Perhaps you have problems with social communication, or people skills, or relationships. You need a therapist who understands neurodivergence on a personal level. You don’t have to mask your autistic self in online therapy with Adult Autism Assessment & Services, and you won’t be judged. Unmask, stim if you want to, be yourself, and find the help and acceptance you deserve.

Does Online Therapy Work?
Many people find that online therapy is effective for them. Autistic adults have learned to appreciate and honor their unique brains, and to celebrate their differences, so they can take off their masks and live their lives authentically. Adults with ADHD have learned to control their time and to set goals and achieve them, rather than being pulled away by every squirrel and shiny thing that comes along. Highly sensitive adults have learned coping strategies so that they can participate in the world without being overwhelmed by it. What benefits do you want to get out of your online therapy?
