Therapy for Children, Teens & Young Adults
Having ADHD, Autism, or another neurodiversity can be challenging. You feel like you have a hard time fitting in, making friends, and really understanding what other people's intentions are. You are constantly bombarded with all this social "stuff," and you don't know what to do with it.
Not to mention your anxiety is always through the roof, and you are tired of feeling like no one understands what you're going through. You're exhausted about feeling overwhelmed, and perhaps your parents don't know what to do anymore. You've tried regular talk therapy and nothing seems to work. You're at a dead-end, and you need someone who gets you. Someone who understands that you need a different type of therapy.
You've come to the right place...
Finding a therapist that understands you can be tough, but I'm happy you're on my page trying to figure out if I'm the right therapist for you. Whether you are struggling with anxiety or social skills, I have helped individuals like you live better lives. Imagine making new friends, and keeping them, or engaging with individuals in the classroom or at work. Imagine not worrying about interacting with others and feeling more confident. Imagine your parents feeling so amazed by everything you are doing and accomplishing!
Meet Monica Wells, LMHC
I'm so glad you're here. I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Huntington, NY. I've been working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and other social learning differences since 2011.
I know how difficult it can be for kids, teens, and young adults struggling with the issues that may come along with a neurodiversity. From socializing to anxiety, there can be a lot of stuff that goes along with a diagnosis. Still, those difficulties aren't anything you can't handle without a little guidance, help, and support.
Yes, you will need to do some work. Yes, you will need to be vulnerable, and yes, you will need to step out of your comfort zone, but you don't have to do it alone!
