Neurodiverse Couples

Intimacy is very much possible

Intimate relationship is challenging for neurodiverse couples who have very different perspectives, communication styles, and personalities than each other. My previous work as an occupational therapist enhances my empathy and professional understanding towards couples facing neurodiversity issues.

Neurology affects how a person thinks, feels, speaks, and believes. It also make an impact on an intimate relationship when it affects every conversation a couple has, how they make decisions together, and how to raise kids together.

During couple relationship coaching, I take these factors into account to help improve communication and intimacy in the neurodiverse relationship.
