Family Therapy

At Xcite Steps, we care about the emotional well being of the entire family.  Our services extend beyond the child, as we provide psychotherapy to parents, couples, siblings, and families who are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder, or other developmental disabilities.  Having a child or sibling who needs extra support can provide stress and additional challenges to life.  Coping with these stressors is not always the easiest.  At Xcite Steps we want to provide you with the tools needed to cope with the stress and anxiety that comes along with a complicated medical condition like Autism Spectrum Disorder.  We work with couples to help rebuild and strengthen relationship bonds, while also learning how to cope with parenting challenges.  We also work with siblings or other loved ones who are struggling to cope with the family changes.

Family and relationship therapy is an important resource to help you gain the tools you need to rebuild healthy relationships and connections within your family.  Xcite Steps puts emphasis on our families unique life circumstances, proving experienced, licensed therapists who have one-on-one experience working with children with ASD and other developmental disabilities.  Our therapists work using clients’ strengths to help navigate through each families unique challenges and develop coping skills that couples and families can use to help maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle.

Therapy services also extend to teens and adults with Asperger’s Syndrome.  Therapy services for individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome is a natural continuation of ABA Therapy, and we work with clients to better understand what makes up their internal experience, and how to share that experience with others.
