Peer support is an valuable tool for personal growth and support for Neurodivergent individuals. Peer support lends a sense of community and connection that may be otherwise lacking in our day to day lives. This group can be especially valuable for those who have identified their Neurodiversity in adulthood and are looking to learn more adaptive strategies for coping with lifelong challenges.
The group is hosted on Google meet, and the private meeting link along with a few focused discussion questions will be sent out the day prior to group for all who are registered. Google meet offers accessibility options such as closed captioning.
More information on group expectations and how to register can be found on my website under the Calendar tab.
Annalise Hammerlund is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Wyoming, MI. Annalise specializes in helping clients to express themselves not only through words, but also art, movement, dance, storytelling, and more. She is an Expressive Arts Therapist who works with children and adults. Many of her clients seek therapy to find strategies around ADHD, Autism, or mood disorders like anxiety and depression.
Annalise’s approach to therapy draws from therapy modalities like art therapy, dance movement therapy, expressive arts, mindfulness-based practices, Health at Every Size, and trauma-informed practice. She understands that sometimes, it’s difficult to talk about one’s emotions. However, even without words, it’s often helpful to express those feelings through other mediums. Annalise also helps clients better understand their internal thought patterns, their motivation to make healthy changes in their lives, and their daily attentional patterns.
Annalise earned a Master’s degree from Lesley University. She enjoys supporting clients through their own personal complexities and empowering them to better understand their mental health. By giving them different tools for self-expression, Annalise equips her clients to handle any challenging emotions that arise.
