What if you weren’t “too much”, “too sensitive”, or too anything? What if the way in which you process, experience, and navigate the world is related to a neurotype that diverges from neuronormativity?
During this intensive, Adrienne will guide you through a neuro-affirming IFS framework for understanding and validating your intensity and neurodivergent needs so you can begin to unburden the parts of yourself that have truly never been seen, understood, and appreciated.
Welcome to folks curious about the possibility of being neurodivergent, folks who are already self-identifying and formally diagnosed with a divergent neurotype, and those who want to be neurodiversity-affirming allies.
In Adrienne's words:
I’m a late-diagnosed Autistic/ADHDer trained in level 2 Internal Family Systems (IFS) —
My current focus of work is centered on supporting midlife women* and non-binary folks navigating —
The possibility and discovery of Autistic/2e identity - challenges/strengths/needs
Midlife challenges and emergence as a high-masking and late-in-life Autistic/2e adult
Together, we’ll explore the strengths, challenges, and needs related to being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world — and celebrate the joy of your unique neuro profile. (*trans, cis)
What I Value:
Neurodiversity - “Neurodiversity is the diversity of human minds, the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species. Neurodiversity is a natural and valuable form of human diversity.”
What it Doesn’t Mean “Neurodiversity is a biological fact. It’s not a perspective, an approach, a belief, a political position, or a paradigm. – Dr. Nick Walker (she/her)
Queer + Trans Affirming
Trauma-Aware Care // the impacts of personal lived experiences, intergenerational, and historical trauma. I define trauma as anything that blocks access to your deep Self.
Please Note: Neurodivergent is an umbrella term for both innate and acquired neurodivergence. It is not synonymous with solely Autism and ADHD. Being neurodivergent is not better than being neurotypical, nor is it being less and vice versa.
