Groups

The A.C.C.E.P.T. Program™ is a suite of groups for neurodivergent youth and adults that promotes understanding, connection and critical consciousness.

All A.C.C.E.P.T. groups are ideal for those who want to live an authentic and meaningful life and have the following goals:

$

Increase self-knowledge as a neurodivergent youth or adult (traits, experiences, sensory perceptions, exceptionalities)

$

Become more skillful in translating yourself to others (self-advocacy, communication, and connection)

$

Connect with broader, neurodiverse-affirming conversations and communities

“The A.C.C.E.P.T. program draws on my unique skill set as a therapist with over ten years of academic teaching to offer unique opportunities for self-understanding and connection between and across neurotypes. In 2022, I offered the first A.C.C.E.P.T. group for neurodivergent adults over 30. Amber Riehl played a key role in developing the concept during her MSW student practicum, including the awesome name! I am very proud of the program we developed and are now expanding into other areas to serve youth and couples.”
