MY GOAL IS TO EXPAND THE UNDERSTANDING OF NEURODIVERSITY

Marcia Eckerd
Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology

After years of working with autistic and other neurodivergent individuals, I’ve developed a speciality in diagnosing undiagnosed adults, especially women who have been overlooked and misunderstood.

Marcia Eckerd, PhD

Therapist

Marcia works with adults

(18 and older) with autistic traits, dealing with social issues, depression, anxiety, flexibility, and executive functions. Her approach is individualized to each client, using tools such as cognitive therapy, strategic coaching, and techniques for

emotional regulation. 

Diagnostician

For neurodivergent people understanding themselves

can be life changing.

Marcia specializes in

identifying adults who’ve been missed because their autistic traits don’t fit the stereotype

of autism.

Autism, ADHD, depression and anxiety often overlap. 

Speaker

Marcia is a leader in the field of understanding and diagnosing autistic women, and in the challenges for neurodivergent children in school

and at home.

She’s experienced in

speaking for parents, educators,

and clinical professionals.

Consulting 

After 30 years, Marcia has a wealth of experience to bring to consulting with neurodivergent
adults, professionals, families, schools, employers,

and organizations

for understanding issues
related to neurodiversity.
