Heartstone Guidance Center offers neurodiversity-affirming therapy services. We have several neurodivergent and autistic therapists on staff. We specialize in Autism, OCD, ADHD, Trauma, Anxiety, and LGBTQIA Supportive Therapy Services.
We specialize in providing therapy services to the neurodivergent population with an emphasis on Autism, ADHD, and OCD. We believe that all neurodiversity is a form of human diversity and that there isn't one 'normal' or 'correct' type of neurocognitive functioning. We reject the idea that Autism, ADHD, or OCD brains are disordered or need to be cured. There is no scientific basis for labeling the neurodivergent as disordered. This is a reflection of adopted cultural norms that pathologize divergent neurotypes and allow for oppression and discrimination against them.
We are committed to helping our clients heal from internalized oppression and find ways to celebrate and explore their neurodivergence. We believe that it is possible to live harmoniously in this world without masking or trying to change who you are.
We are committed to a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual affirming practice. We support LGBTQIA clients and their families with identity exploration, relationships and addressing the negative impacts of homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism have on the lives of LGBTQIA clients.
We follow the WPATH Standards of Care.
Advocates for Racial & Social Justice
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”
Heartstone Guidance Center stands with our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Community Members. We condemn systemic racism and the oppression of People of Color.
We respect and understand that our BIPOC clients have unique identities and cultural experiences. We acknowledge our differences while remaining committed to inclusivity. We acknowledge the impact of race, racial trauma, oppression, and ongoing microaggressions on the lives and experiences of our BIPOC clients.
We offer experienced and trained teletherapists. We use Simple Practice; a secure, HIPAA compliant, online video chat platform. Online therapy is flexible. It fits into your schedule and happens in any location you feel comfortable with. You will need a tablet, phone, or laptop and you can download the Simple Practice App for clear and crisp video conferencing.

We recognize the theft and atrocities committed against the Indigenous peoples of this land. We fully support the Land Back Movement and the return of stolen lands. Please consider learning more about and supporting the Land Back Movement. www.landback.org. We pay respect to the Elders, past, present, and future, and extend that respect to all Indigenous peoples.
