About Sarah Swenson

I am a coach and therapist for couples in which one partner is autistic. These relationships require special understanding and guidance due to the many differences in perception and experience of the two partners. Often there is hurt without intent, so the neurotypical partner feels deeply traumatized. The autistic partner is often anxious and confused, which leads to depression. Arguments are started and never resolved. Both partners feel they are caught in a cycle they can neither understand nor change. My work is to translate the experiences of both partners and help them develop tools and coping skills so they can move forward in their lives.
