At Spectrum Connections Therapy, our clinicians specialize in counseling neurodiverse individuals and couples. Specialized marriage and couples counseling is important for Neurodiverse (ND) relationships. Couples therapy offers a great opportunity for all partners to come together and resolve issues from a united front. However, it’s important that couples involved in neurodiverse partnerships work with a clinician who understands the particular marriage and relationship problems faced by those living with autism spectrum, ADHD, and other forms of neurodivergence. Each autistic or otherwise neurodivergent individual is unique, therefore, working with a couples therapist that embraces and celebrates the exceptional qualities of the relationship—and the individuals in it—is essential.
Our approach to neurodiverse couples therapy incorporates The Gottman Method, a research-based therapeutic technique specifically designed for partnerships. Using this method, your therapist will help you and your significant other find shared meaning in your experiences, improve verbal communication, enhance intimacy, and remove the barriers that create ongoing conflict.
We’ve found that The Gottman Method is particularly beneficial for our autistic couples because it is a skills-based therapy structured in nature. Since the time in counseling is spent building a relationship toolbox and completing communication-specific tasks, neurodivergent clients are likely to find that this therapeutic process better aligns with their unique experience of the world.
It’s possible to transform your relationship into a symbol of safety, understanding, and mutual support. With therapy for neurodiverse couples, you and your partner can cultivate the deep and lasting connection you desire.
