Neurodivergent Therapists was created by Amelia G. Slama, LPCC, after she was diagnosed as Autistic in her late 20’s. At this point in her life, she was already a practicing counselor for over 5 years. She quickly realized that her experiences as an Autistic person had significantly impacted how she operated as a counselor. With the therapeutic relationship being the most important factor in the therapy process, she realized that there could be a benefit to connecting neurodivergent clients with neurodivergent therapists due to their shared neurotype. This lead to the development of this directory. All therapists listed in this directory have made the decision to be open about their neurotype to create safe therapy spaces for other neurodivergent folks. We do not ask for proof of diagnosis from our therapists, as we accept those who are formally diagnosed and those who identify as neurodivergent. This is also true for clients who are seeking services with our therapists.
Specialisterne is an internationally recognized leader in harnessing the talents of people on the autism spectrum and other neurodivergent people by providing them with the opportunity to sustain meaningful employment. Originally founded in Denmark by Thorkil Sonne, Specialisterne now operates in twelve countries around the world.
For over a decade, Specialisterne has developed hiring and management practices to help increase the neurodiversity of the global workforce. We are working to prove the business value in hiring people who think and communicate differently and initiate meaningful careers.
We are partnering with a nonprofit for people with disabilities in Yemen.
