Part 1 Group co-facilitators:

“My hope for this group is that we cultivate a safe and supportive environment for neurodivergent individuals to learn, share and grow. By utilizing the ACCEPT Framework, my therapeutic experience and integrating insights from my neurodivergent experience, I aim to promote the exploration of self and an appreciation for their unique traits, a deeper self-awareness and a better understanding of their perceptions and experiences. My hope is for you to be empowered with the ability to self-advocate, enhance your self-regulation, and cultivate tools and strategies for life navigation. With the support of your peers, it is my hope that you will leave with greater self-acceptance and self-compassion, ultimately fostering the confidence to express yourself more authentically in the world.”
