This is too important to leave to the winds of social media. Therapy is a vital resource for most everyone but when you’re neurodivergent, accessing support that works for you can be challenging.

This episode of the Neurodiverging podcast is *so* excellent, it is required listening as far as I’m concerned.

Danielle Sullivan, host and autistic life coach, discusses why it’s so tough for us to access the help that’s readily available to others and breaks down ways autistic people can locate, validate, assess, and best use the therapy options we may have available to us.

Part one covers the basics of finding a therapist that’s a good fit.
Part two covers finding support when you’re neurodivergent.
