Individuals on the autism spectrum and those with other neurodevelopmental differences, such as ADHD and learning disabilities, often face significant barriers when it comes to accessing appropriate psychiatric care. These barriers can include a lack of accommodations or support in clinical settings and a lack of understanding or knowledge about autism and other neurodivergencies. Many individuals report experiencing a lack of empathy and understanding from mental health professionals, as well as a lack of awareness about their unique challenges and experiences. This can lead to a sense of frustration and isolation for neurodivergent individuals and can make it difficult for them to build trusting relationships with mental health care providers.
It doesn't have to be that way.
One size does not fit all.
Unique individuals deserve health care tailored to their specific needs and goals.

“I cannot stress how influential Dr. Viani’s guidance was to our son and our family. After dozens of therapists and doctors, she was the one who finally had a clear method of how to move forward. She always made sense. She never faltered - she never seemed phased by anything that came up. She calmed us as parents down, she gave us tools to parent our son the way he needed us. Our son felt that he finally had someone who could help him - and that gave him the strength to move forward and on to college and life."
