New Series About Understanding Aspergers

Introducing a resource for promoting healthy communication styles with people diagnosed with Aspergers.
I hope this email finds you well and you enjoyed your holiday weekend. It’s hot here in New York, with temperatures hitting the 90s. The heat has me even more excited to be indoors polishing off a series I have been working on for the past few months. In addition to my regular newsletter (which many of you have subscribed to), I also have a newsletter series designed to help people better relate to people with mild forms of Autism or Aspergers disorder.
After years of working with people on the spectrum and their families I realized there are parents, siblings, friends and partners out there who could benefit from extra support, tips, and reminders that they are not alone. I was inspired to create this series to share stories and provide a source of helpful information. The series covers everything from supporting your loved one’s special interests to how to communicate more meaningfully with less effort.
If you or anyone you know might benefit from the support, knowledge, and tips offered in this series, I would love it if you shared this newsletter with them. As many of you are therapists, I would love it if you kept this resource handy and passed it along to family members of clients with Aspergers or friends in the field who may find it useful.

I am an art therapist and creative arts therapies supervisor in New York City. I have worked as an art therapist for over 9 years with children and adults in a variety of settings. Art Therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on the creative process in order to promote self awareness, esteem and insight. I provide long and short term individual therapy, group therapy, and supervision for practicing clinicians at my Manhattan office. I also offer remote services.
