Hi, I'm Jodi.
You've found your way here, so that tells me you are confused. If you're in a long-term relationship, you're hurting. Maybe you don't even know much about the autism spectrum, and you're pretty scared - because a lot of what you've read online is daunting.
You want so badly to be happy, and to have the great relationship that you imagined - but, you're wondering if those hopes and dreams will ever become a reality.
I understand you. I've been there, myself - and I've met countless men and women who are in relationships like yours. You are my people and I'm here to help.
For over 20 years, I helped people transform their lives as a licensed psychotherapist, but now as a coach, those with autism, and those of you who love someone with autism (Asperger's) are my people.
I began specializing in autism well over a decade ago, and now my entire career is dedicated to helping adults like yourself achieve the connection, love, and happiness you desire in your relationship or marriage.
IN MY OWN AUTISM RELATIONSHIPS I FELT SO MISUNDERSTOOD.
I was accused of being critical (and I didn't understand why).
I felt hopeless and confused.
I thought I was losing my mind.
I felt ashamed that I couldn't fix my relationship. I felt angry. I felt HURT!
Sometimes I even had moments of uncharacteristic rage that shocked and scared me.
I tried hard. I requested talks so we could figure things out. My autistic partners both hated the talks, though.
My marriage of 19 years to the father of my children ended, after multiple attempts for help with different counselors. I realized years later that he is on the autism spectrum.
The other relationship with a man on the autism spectrum ended after 2.5 years.
I also learned that I was going about it all wrong and I figured out why.
I look forward to helping you discover a whole new world of possibility in your relationship and in your life!
In order to help me, and my staff, provide the best response possible, please share a little bit about yourself.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Jodi and the Spectrum Support Team
