Social Skills

Social skills do not come naturally to everybody

Social skills do not come naturally to everybody especially people who are diagnosed with ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and other neurodivergent disorders. We can assist with decreasing the anxiety related to social interactions, improving communication skills,  reaching objectives, maintaining relationships, and prioritizing self-respect in interpersonal situations. 

We look forward to working with you collaboratively to increase your confidence and competence in social situations. Read more here about resources that help foster social skills.

Common Social Skill Barriers:

  • Anxiety in social situations
  • Communication difficulties
  •  Trouble understanding your own thoughts or feelings
  • Trouble understanding other’s thoughts and feelings and responding appropriately
  • Difficulty interpreting body language
  • Lack of daily living skills
  • Difficulty understanding different perspectives
  • Challenges with problem solving skils
  • Trouble building rapport with others
  • Lack of accountability

Our Approach:

Our therapists use  a variety of techniques to help strengthen a wide range of social skills. 

We understand that we are living in a world where it can be difficult to keep up with the evolving modes of online communications, which can leave us feeling disconnected from the types of meaningful interactions that help build our social skills and foster our ability to properly express ourselves or engage with others in general.  

We seek to help you better understand how to navigate both online and in-person social skills, knowing that there is an increasing pressure, and recognize the value and distinct skill sets for both. 

We provide proven social skills training through our PEERs program, as well as addressing tools and strategies in a group, individual, family, and couples therapy.
