Psychological care, family counseling, HIMAT (Health Insurance Mandated Autism Treatment), ABA provider, DSM 5,therapeutic care,social skills,....it's a maze of words isn't it?
Thank you to Autism Society of Colorado for succinctly outlining what is and isn't and how things work. http://autismcolorado.org
Although I am not an ABA provider I do offer psychotherapy. I do not offer ABA therapy. I am well versed in working with pre-adolescent, adolescent and the young adult population. As a former middle school art teacher, a parent of a child who was a square peg trying to fit into public school's round hole and exhibited ADD/ADHD behavior and as a former middle school psychotherapist with at risk students in Greeley Evans District 6 I am well versed in working with these age groups and within the school system. (complete resume can be found at www.connecttherapies.com)
It has occurred to me and keeps recurring that family members are lacking the emotional support/ safety net that the some individuals with ASD has available to them. I offer experiential group therapy and individual support to family members of individuals on the Spectrum.
This is not to say that psychological support is easily found for those with ASD. In fact the number of private practice individuals in Northern Colorado that offer support (outside of agencies) I can count on one hand, perhaps on three fingers. I offer experiential therapy and traditional psychotherapy for individuals on the spectrum.
If you are interested in the above services please contact me @ 970-633-1065. If you are high on the ASD spectrum and wish to participate in a therapeutic art group to develop social skills contact me @ 970-633-1065. New groups are forming for January 2017. I am conveniently located near the CSU test gardens in Fort Collins.
