FAQ

What Sets You Apart?

The Neurodiversity Center of Katy is a unique counseling center that specializes in providing support and resources for individuals with neurodiverse conditions such as autism, ADHD, and learning differences. Our team of experienced therapists are trained to understand the unique needs of neurodiverse individuals and provide personalized treatment plans that focus on strengths and abilities rather than deficits. We also offer a range of workshops and support groups for individuals and families to connect and learn from each other.

What Does Communication with Parents in Teen Therapy Look Like?

Our answer to this is nuanced. On the one hand, for teen therapy to be effective, teens need to know the therapist will not break their confidence. If the therapist shares every detail of therapy with the parent, the teenager will no longer trust the therapist. Without a relationship based on trust, the therapy fails. On the other hand, it's important for parents to feel connected to their child's therapy experience. There are too many teen therapists who do not communicate effectively with the parent. We try to find a balance where we maintain the teen's confidentiality while also encouraging communication with parents about progress, themes that are being discussed and exploration of family dynamics. Communication with parents is one of our strengths. Don't just take our word for it. Please read what other parents have said. 

How Long Does Therapy Last?

This is a difficult question to answer since every therapy plan is different. We have short-term and long-term plans on our case load. We see some clients for a few months and others for 4 plus years.  We tell every client that we are ultimately trying to work ourselves out of a job. Our goal is not to create dependence but to empower interdependence. 

Do You Take Insurance?

Our office does not accept insurance. 80-85% of the therapists in our area do not take insurance. Insurance companies are increasingly making it more and more difficult for both the client to access mental health resources and therapists to utilize insurance. Here's more information on why we do not take insurance. 

What Is The First Session Like?

The first session is a chance for us to get to know each other. We are relational therapists which means that establishing an authentic connection with you is of the utmost importance. We like to ask questions about your interests, passions and strengths. After getting to know each other, we explore why you are seeking therapy and how we can help.

As popular as Quique Autrey is in our community, we were lucky to get an appointment when my son needed it the most. My son has developed a bond with him and looks forward to every session. No matter how dark things may seem, he always comes out of his session with a different and positive outlook. It's been a long journey and we still have much to work on, but working with Quique has brought a sense of relief that our family needed.
