5 years of experience

Hey y'all, I'm Jasany. Do you feel lost, as if others have some sort of cheat code to life that no one passed to you? Maybe you've always felt different than most, leaving you to question your identity and intuition. I've been there and even continue to do the work that allows me to feel grounded in my identity, and befriend my authentic self. At 31, all my quirky traits and unpopular opinions finally made sense, once I learned about and embraced my neurodivergent brain. There is no specific blueprint on who to be or how to live. We all have varying identities that make life exciting, challenging, and rewarding. However, some of us hold identities that are met with stigma, thus impacting our ability to live in our authenticity. I offer minority-affirming psychotherapy and is dedicated to holding nonjudgmental space for BIPOC folx, womxn, SOGIE individuals, and neurodivergent adults. My approach is holistic and trauma-responsive. We'll work together to explore, heal, and self-actualize. Whether you need support with managing neurodevelopmental conditions (autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, etc.), processing trauma, managing anxiety and depression, exploring sexuality and gender, or just need a safe space sort out your thoughts and emotions, I'm here to help.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

My mission is to improve the quality of life of minority individuals at the intersection of neurodivergence. Together we can create the fulfilling life that you deserve. We'll slow down and learn your own needs and desires around safety, love and belonging, and self-esteem. We'll take things at your pace - first building a trusting relationship and then tackling deeper concerns. We can talk, engage creative & therapeutic activities, and practice somatic strategies to improve your brain-body connection.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

As an eclectic trauma therapist, I use a client-centered approach, meaning we'll find a method that best fits you. I'm a Autism Clinical Specialist and I am a trained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). "EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference". I offer expressive therapies such as journaling, art, and breath work.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I know first hand the joys and frustrations of living with an atypical neurotype in a word designed for neurotypical people. I also understand the confusion, stress, and trauma of living the majority of my life as an undiagnosed AuDHDer. Neurodivergent conditions present in a vast variety of ways and healthy mental health for neurodivergent folx looks different! My greatest offering to you is an intersectional approach - helping you make sense of the impact of not only neurotype, but minority stress and societal structures that shape your experiences in this world.
