Ruth Strunz, Registered Psychotherapist I am a Psychotherapist who specializes in supporting people who live with (or who love someone who lives with) various forms of neuro-diversity. This includes Autism, ADHD and other invisible diversities. Experiencing the world differently from other people can be painful and isolating - it's important to recognize that you are not alone, that it doesn't have to hurt so much, and that help and support is available.
