I am an Occupational Therapist who works with youth and adults to support them in participating fully in activities that are meaningful to them and bring them joy. I work collaboratively with neurodivergent individuals who are experiencing challenges with work, school, and other daily activities due to difficulties with executive functions, sensory processing differences, or other challenges.
Occupational Therapy is a profession focused on co-creating strategies and solutions so that individuals can participate in daily activities that they want or need to do. These can include self-care tasks, work, school, hobbies/leisure activities, caregiving, and household tasks.
As an Occupational Therapist, my role is to support individuals so that they can achieve their goals and participate in everyday activities that give their lives meaning and joy.
If you are unable to achieve your full potential at work due to difficulties with organizational skills or difficulty with multi-tasking, I can work with you to develop skills and strategies to complete tasks at school or work more successfully. For example, I might work with you to develop a new organizational system that meets your specific learning style or implement a strategy that helps you to switch attention when you are hyper-focused.
If you are struggling with coursework at college or university due to challenges with time management or memory, I can work with you to develop skills to enhance your memory and implement strategies to plan your time more effectively to meet the demands of various courses.
If you are a neurodivergent parent experiencing challenges with caregiving or if you are parenting a neurodivergent child, I can work closely with you to identify and address your child’s specific challenges, whether they be related to sensory needs, ability to complete self-care tasks, or struggles at school. I may also recommend environmental modifications or activity adaptations to further address barriers that are preventing you from participating in the activities that are important to you.
I believe that an individual is an expert in their own life and I use this lens in my practice. I work collaboratively with individuals to address barriers that are preventing them from being able to meet their goals. I feel passionately about adopting neurodiversity-affirming practices and strive to engage in continuous learning to enhance my skills in working with neurodivergent individuals.

Before connecting you with Harsha, we would like to invite you for a free twenty-minute consultation with our Client Care Coordinator.
The consultation is not a therapy session. It’s a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about us and for us to make sure you are in the best possible hands.
Therapy is all about the right fit. We are sure you’ll find the right fit with us, where neurodivergence is normal.

This article is written by a self-diagnosed Autistic female-presenting person in the form of a letter to the psychiatrist who found her too ‘high-functioning’ to be on the Autism spectrum, and is the first in our series of neurodivergent voices.
There is a term for what happens when service providers unintentionally do harm to the people seeking their help: Sanctuary Trauma.
