Inclusive and affirming mental health care designed for adults with autism and ADHD.

Orange County, October 1st, 2023 – The Neurodivergent Collective is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its innovative treatment program, dedicated to empowering neurodivergent adults in achieving their full potential. Embracing a multidisciplinary approach, The Neurodivergent Collective offers a holistic blend of psychotherapy, psychiatry, executive functioning, and occupational therapy designed to provide individualized care and support for each client’s unique needs.

Psychotherapy lies at the heart of The Neurodivergent Collective’s transformative treatment model. Guided by somatically adapted evidence-based therapies, including Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, and Attachment theory, the program aims to facilitate personal growth, refine social connections, and foster mental wellness. By focusing on identity development, somatic awareness, and emotional regulation, the skilled therapists at The Neurodivergent Collective empower clients to leverage their inherent strengths to thrive in the intricate social and emotional landscape.

The Psychiatry arm of The Neurodivergent Collective is dedicated to providing compassionate medication management services to support clients in effectively managing neurodivergence-related symptoms. Working closely with each client, the program’s experienced psychiatrists collaborate to identify tailored medication regimens, ensuring optimal efficacy and minimal side effects, thereby promoting overall well-being.

Executive Functioning is a critical aspect of life management, and The Neurodivergent Collective recognizes its significance in facilitating daily activities and long-term goals. The program’s adept executive functioning coaches equip clients with essential cognitive and behavioral skills, such as planning, organization, time management, and problem-solving. This specialized training is particularly valuable for those striving for academic or career success.

Occupational Therapy at The Neurodivergent Collective provides expert support in engaging clients in the activities they desire, need, or are expected to undertake in their daily lives. The program’s occupational therapists focus on self-care, productivity, and leisure while collaborating closely with clients to enhance their abilities and independence to establish accomplishment and fulfillment. 

At The Neurodivergent Collective, a person-centered approach is at the core of every interaction. Each client’s journey is thoughtfully tailored to address their unique strengths, challenges, and aspirations, fostering a nurturing and supportive environment. The program’s commitment to individualized care ensures that clients receive the comprehensive support they require to thrive.

“We are incredibly excited to launch The Neurodivergent Collective and provide a pioneering treatment program specifically designed to empower neurodivergent adults,” shared Dr. Kristen Zaleski, Cheif Clinical Officer of The Collective Treatment Programs. “Our team of compassionate and skilled professionals is dedicated to helping our clients embrace their uniqueness, overcome challenges, and unlock their full potential. We believe that every individual has inherent strengths, and we are here to support them in their journey towards personal success and mental well-being.
