Services

I am currently accepting new clients for individual and couples counseling. Clients see me in-person, or for relationship coaching via phone or video conferencing. Please submit an online inquiry here or call: 617-669-3040, or email: contact@evmendes.com to set up an appointment.

I specialize in couples counseling where one or both partners have Asperger Syndrome/Autism Spectrum Disorder (diagnosed or undiagnosed). I offer diagnosis and evaluations for men and women with Asperger Syndrome/Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Social-Communication Disorder, and related neurological profiles.

Psychotherapy

For Adults with:
Asperger Syndrome, Autism Spectrum, ADD, ADHD, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, and social-communicate challenges, executive functioning issues, learning differences, LGBTQ, and multicultural challenges.

Spouses and Partners:
Many spouses and partners of adults with Asperger Syndrome come to counseling on their own. Even one partner working on the relationship can make a positive difference.

Women with Asperger Syndrome/Autism/ADHD:
Women with Asperger Syndrome/Autism/ADHD greatly benefit from working with a specialist in this area.

Students and Young Adults:
Transitioning from high-school to college and independent living for students and young adults with Asperger Syndrome/Autism can often be fraught with obstacles. I offer consultations and counseling to figure out and work through these challenges.

Family Members: parents, siblings, children, and grandparents:
Family members dealing with Asperger Syndrome/Autism Spectrum can also learn how to better communicate.

Couples Counseling

Neurodiverse Couples:
Couples where one or both partners have Asperger Syndrome/Autism Spectrum/ADHD.

Dating and Premarital Counseling:
Premarital counseling can help many couples resolve challenging issues and establish healthy communication habits before marriage.

Multicultural Couples:
I also work with individuals from a wide variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and those in ethnically mixed marriages.

Relationship or Social Skills Coaching:
Clients living outside of state and country, who can’t come see me in person, can receive coaching from me via telephone or video conferencing.

Diagnostic Assessments

I specialize in diagnosing adults of all ages who may have Asperger Syndrome or a related Autism Spectrum condition, ADHD, and related neurological profiles. I base my diagnoses on in-depth interviews conducted over four sessions, to elicit a detailed picture of an individual’s developmental, educational, employment, and psychological history. When evaluating an individual for couple’s counseling, I may also speak to the spouse or partner to broaden the diagnostic picture.

Consultations for Students and Young Adults Transitioning to College or Independent Living

Students and young adults on the Autism Spectrum and their parents consult with me on transitioning to college or exploring independent living.

Psychoeducation for Individuals and Families

Learning more about the traits of Asperger Syndrome and the Autism Spectrum can be valuable and empowering for:

  • Adults with Asperger Syndrome/Autism Spectrum
  • Their spouses and partners
  • Women with Asperger Syndrome/Autism Spectrum
  • Parents and family members of individuals on the spectrum

Eva’s presentation at North Shore Medical Center was a great success! Every completed participant evaluation form reflected, what an excellent job she did. Several people commented, on how much they enjoyed her interweave of theory and the practical applications to their clinical work. Eva is a gifted speaker and possesses a wonderful ability to connect with a diverse audience.  We thank her for being so well prepared, flexible and easy to work with. She made my job a pleasure. Hopefully, she will consider doing another presentation for us.
