Coaching Groups
Coaching Groups offer the opportunity to learn tools and strategies while receiving understanding and validation that you are not alone, that others are having similar experiences and feelings. 
 
I offer a variety of groups: for neurodiverse couples together or for each partner separately. 
 
FOR BOTH PARTNERS TOGETHER
Couples Coaching Groups
These groups are often the first time that neurodiverse couples have the chance to speak with other neurodiverse couples about how their neurodiversity affects their relationship. They offer you the opportunity to realize that the issues you are struggling with are not unique to your relationship. This makes it possible to take things less personally and to learn new tools and strategies from the other couples who have similar experiences and issues, and from Grace who understands both partners and can interpret for each. No formal diagnosis is required.
 
Both you and your partner will feel normalized and validated for your neurology. Understanding and acceptance increases over the course of the group sessions for yourself and your partner and the unique challenges that neurodiverse couples face.
COUPLES GROUP DETAILS:
Each group consists of 3 - 5 couples. Smaller groups meet for 60 minutes. Larger groups meet for 90 minutes. Couples commit to meeting once a month for 4 consecutive months.
 
The time and date is flexible and is worked out in advanced based on your availability.
 
COST: $200 per couple for all 4 meetings.

FOR PARTNERS SEPARATELY
Neurotypical Partners Groups
These groups are just for the neurotypical partner in a neurodiverse relationship. No formal diagnosis for your partner is required. Get support and strategies from others who truly understand and are also facing the challenges that come with being in a neurodiverse relationship. Learn tools from Grace, who will address the specific questions from the group participants. You can come once or multiple times each month.

"I want to thank you for facilitating support groups for spouses like myself. I cannot pinpoint exactly why or how but attending the meeting has brought me to a place of  acceptance of my reality and consequently of re-connection with my husband. What greater gift?" - a neurotypical partner  

"Thanks for tonight’s group. That was very helpful. Especially the tools the 3 sentence request, and the1-5 scale. And the topics of 'No', travel, mirroring, and that is is ok to be matter-of-fact about what needs to happen. I would try coming to this group again. I feel way less alone, scared, and helpless now." - a partner on the spectrum 
"The suggestions from yesterday's meeting made a very big difference for us. It helped us get reenergized, and connecting with everyone was great!"
- a neurodiverse couple

 

"Thank you for welcoming me to my first meeting. It was fortifying and nourishing for me to attend, I cannot begin to describe how helpful it was. I really appreciate this resource, even today’s first session was already a major point of healing and growth for me." - a neurotypical partner  

 

"The group met all of our expectations. We look forward to meeting again. The meeting was extremely helpful." - a neurodiverse couple
