Neurodivergent Therapy in North Carolina
“Has life felt challenging, like it’s been difficult to feel like you fit in or belong somewhere? ”
In Neurodivergent Therapy we get it. People with neurodivergence don’t always feel like they belong especially in a “neurotypical world.”
The truth is that your brain works differently. You absorb energy differently. As a result, there might be an increase in miscommunication. Subsequently, it can lead to social struggles and feeling misunderstood. It can also lead to feelings of depression, increased anxiety, and feelings of loneliness.
There is NOTHING wrong with you if you seek neurodivergent therapy. It may feel like this world wasn’t made for you. Or that it’s hard to fit into the mold.
Neurodivergent... Meaning what?
You may see the terms neurodivergent, neurodiverse, or neurodivergence more and more these days. If you’re on this page it may be because you resonate with having a brain that works “differently”. Meaning that you might also feel like you’ve had to struggle to “fit in” to a neurotypical world.
Above all, you think and function in a unique way. If you have any of the following then your brain has developed differently.
Neurodivergence is the term for when someone’s brain processes in a different way. Meaning that it learns and/or behaves differently from what is considered “typical.”
Neurodiversity is the idea that it’s not only acceptable. But it is normal for people to have brains that function differently. Rather than thinking there is something wrong or problematic. Especially when some people don’t operate similarly to others. Neurodiversity embraces all differences. The concept of neurodiversity recognizes that brain function and behavioral traits are indicators. Which show how diverse the human population is.
Common Things We See In Neurodivergent Therapy in North Carolina
“When you’re excited, you’re REALLY excited. You’re passionate. You’re creative. The way your brain thinks outside of the box is a gift. It’s magical.
You may find yourself more comfortable around people who think differently. Just like you. There’s an unspoken comfortability in feeling seen, understood, and valued.
It’s important to remember that neurodiversity is a spectrum. It’s not black and white, and it’s not all or nothing.
Resilient Mind Counseling can help support you with your neurodivergent journeys. It all starts with a single step forward.”
Reasons To Start Neurodivergent Therapy
Lots of people who are neurodivergent struggle with executive functioning. Think of this as a filing system or office manager in your brain that is out to lunch. It’s hard to complete tasks, see things through, and stay organized. Oftentimes it’s challenging to do household tasks. Such as folding the laundry, doing the dishes, etc.
- Do you struggle to walk through a grocery store because of all the sounds and sights? Causing you to run out without anything on your list because it’s so DAMN overwhelming?
- Maybe you have a hard time with small talk and artificial conversation?
- Does your brain light up with energy, sparking a creative wave that always ends in a crash?
- Sometimes when you’re talking do you get really excited and then “OH SQUIRREL”? Do you feel like you get distracted or change topics rapidly?
Our therapists believe that people who are neurodivergent or have neurodiverse brains are beautiful, unique, and extraordinary. Society tells us that we have to fit into something that wasn’t made for us. For example…
- 9-5 jobs? No Thank You!
- Overwhelming social situations with too many people, sounds, smells, lights? HARD PASS!
- Small talk? Run for your life!
