How I’m Different

My own neurodiverse family and relationships have been my personal training ground for understanding neurodiversity. These personal experiences have provided more education and insight than my two college degrees and 15 years of experience as a psychotherapist.

I AM neurodivergent

I recently became aware that I am ADHD, myself. I have sensory processing challenges, auditory processing deficits, and several health conditions that are common in neurodivergence. I understand how different brains affect relationships in a way that most therapists cannot.

Education

and how genetically drive differences cause confusion and misunderstandings.  This will provide you with a framework for understanding your relationship in a totally new way.

Clarity

Clarity is a critical part of discernment when you feel hopeless and need to determine a direction to take in your relationship.

Direction

FIRST, you must determine if your relationship has the potential for growth and healing.  This step cannot be skipped.

Solutions

Whatever direction you go, I will guide you with insights, strategies, solutions, and tools for making your way forward.

We’ve been married for over 16 years and have always struggled to communicate despite having seen several counselors over the years. We are in a desperate situation and don’t want to get divorced. We need some help!

WHAT MY CLIENTS AND FOLLOWERS ARE SAYING

ABOUT ME, JODI CARLTON, MEd

As a leading expert in neurodiverse relationship dynamics, I have helped countless teenagers, parents, adults, and couples to understand brain differences in language, emotions, sensory processing, and behavior.

For me, neurodiversity is personal. My experience comes primarily from my own personal relationships: my 19-year marriage, other romantic partners, my children, other family members, and my closest friends.

I am also a survivor of narcissistic abuse and have spent years recovering from codependency (“pathological kindness”) that developed in my childhood.

Someone once told me, “I can’t imagine the number of people you help because of your own experiences,” and that is my exact mission – to reach and guide you through your own journey of discovery and healing.
