Counseling and Consulting Services

ACCScover2016The AuSM Counseling and Consulting Services team works in partnership with you to develop a plan based on your needs. For many, working with mental heath service providers is a new experience; we want you to feel comfortable and knowledgeable as we undertake this journey together, striving for positive, individual-focused goals.

AuSM therapists have more than 80 years of combined experience serving individuals with autism. They strive to help individuals with autism understand their diagnosis and address both the challenges and gifts that it can bring. Our depth of experience and dedicated support allows you to be confident that we will meet you wherever you are and start from there – no judgments, no preconceptions. From young children to adults, those on every part of the spectrum can grow at their own pace in a safe, compassionate environment, while pursuing their personal goals.

Counseling services include:

  • Diagnostic assessments for adults
  • Functional or behavioral assessments for all ages
  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Behavior consultation
  • Marriage and couples therapy
  • Training for organizations and service providers

NOTE: (posted June 11, 2017) Due to the high volume of assessment requests, AuSM is not taking appointments for assessments at this time. However, AuSM is taking appointments for new clients. AuSM is in the process of expanding its Counseling and Consulting Services staff. When the schedule opens up for assessment appointments, this note will be removed. Thank you for your patience. 

Consulting Services
AuSM’s Counseling and Consulting Services team is available to consult with therapists, group home staff, community organizations, employers, day training and habilitation groups, and other professionals who work with individuals with autism to help with general training or to offer strategies related to a specific issue or topic.
