Creating Your Unique Identity And Narrative In A Neurotypical WorldSchedule a free consultation
One of the hardest parts of being neurodiverse is living in a world full of people who don’t get you. This can make us neurodiverse folks feel rejected, alone, and unworthy, which then creates many more mental health concerns.
But, ironically, when we go to therapy for these problems, we are often met by a neurotypical therapist who doesn’t understand us either! The same issues we experience in society are perpetuated in our relationship with our therapist, making mental health care ineffective and damaging.
You deserve better!
I empower neurodiverse people to find pride in their identity and manage their mental health challenges. I provide support with many mental health challenges, like anxiety, trauma, and depression, while also tending to the impact of social systems on your mental wellbeing.
As a neurodiverse person myself, I can understand my clients in ways that other clinicians can’t. Pair that with my years of professional experience, scientific research, and specialized education in counseling neurodiverse people. The result is effective treatment that leaves you feeling confident and understood.
You might be asking “Am I neurodiverse?”. Neurodiversity is a term that acknowledges that all human brains do and should work differently. People who are neurodiverse have differences in brain functioning that may result in them self-identifying or receiving an official diagnosis of autism, ADHD, information processing disorders, and more.
Zoe Darazsdi is a mental health counselor with nearly a decade of experience empowering neurodiverse people. In that time, she has helped countless teens and adults to navigate the challenges and gifts of living with a unique brain. Her practice is trauma-informed and guided by Adlerian counseling theory and disability rights activism.
Zoe’s work is supported by her own autistic self-advocacy and the professional research she conducts on autistic peoples’ experiences in counseling. When Zoe is not counseling, she is writing, kickboxing, and playing with her dog, Beezus.
Zoe is a pre-licensed counselor accruing post-grad hours under supervision number Pc006781.
