You've felt othered, like an alien, like a weirdo, like a nerd or a geek. You just never quite fit in.
You may feel like an outsider in your own family.
You feel misunderstood, and no one understands your intentions
You might struggle with relationships, friendships, jobs
You may have been told you're too much, too sensitive, too analytical, too quiet, too nice, too loud
You may also have been told you're lazy, you procrastinate, you don't try hard enough
IT CAN BE VERY PAINFUL WHEN YOUR BRAIN IS WIRED DIFFERENTLY, AND YOU'RE EXPECTED TO SHOW UP, PERFORM AND ACT LIKE A NEUROTYPICAL PERSON, WHEN YOU ARE WIRED AS A NEURODIVERGENT PERSON
I get it!
As neurodivergent folks, we have many gifts to offer the world (empathy, insight, pattern recognition, attention to details, loyalty, a strong sense of justice, dedication, persistence, creativity, unique perspectives, thinking outside the box, honesty, being a truth-teller and more).
It may feel like everyone else got the rule book, but you stepped out of line when they were handing them out.
You may have been to many therapists, and just felt like you didn't get anywhere. Or you made progress, but now you want to do deeper work, or look at something else.
I'm Patricia Young, MSW, and I'm neurodivergent! I was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 17 years, but decided to put my license on hold because I love providing coaching.
If nothing else, it is crucial to find someone to work with that you feel truly gets you and understands neurodivergence, and can support you in figuring out ways to honor how you're wired, and to help you manage better.
Why Work With Me?
No matter where in the world you live, if you have access to the internet (and privacy), we can work together.
As I've worked with many neurodivergent clients, I've adopted a style of coaching that has been very effective.
