“Your intuition about my place on the spectrum was spot-on. I cannot thank you enough for your part in this process as it has led to a persistent level of happiness that I had only dreamed possible for myself.” —Adult male on the Autism Spectrum
Individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder have an array of socio-emotional-sexual challenges which often impact their ability to connect with family, peers, colleagues, and loved ones. Many struggle with pornography use, abuse, or addiction issues as part of their symptomatology and some engage in problematic sexual behavior that at times results in their involvement in the legal system. Family members, partners, colleagues, and clinicians are often stumped with individuals on the Autism Spectrum, largely because they either have a limited understanding of ASD or have limited resources. At Namasté Center For Healing, our clinicians are trained to assess as well as provide accurate educational and habilitative treatment for individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Our Founder Candice is an expert in assessing and treating individuals on the Autism Spectrum, including those involved in the criminal justice system.
Autism and Intimacy Class for Men: Join Candice as she incorporates her curriculum Seeing Rainbows©2019, which is specifically designed to assist men on the Autism spectrum in practicing healthy social and sexual cues, using boundaries instead of walls, recognizing autistic logic, exploring theory of mind and perceptions, learning their cycle of risky or problematic sexual behavior, how to stay safe online and in public, identifying faulty thinking (e.g., black and white thinking, rigidity, blaming, etc), and so much more using a CBT framework! This fun, interactive class creates a sense of safety, comfort, confidentially and compassionate support so that men have an easy time learning!
