Lily Duffy, LSW - Therapy for High-Masking + Late Identified Neurodivergent Adults
You feel worn down by shame, self-criticism, and anxiety. There’s a tendency to doubt yourself, to overanalyze situations or things you’ve said until you feel embarrassed and exhausted. You’ve always felt different from others—you wish you didn’t have to feel everything so deeply, that you weren’t as easily overwhelmed by the “small” things in everyday life. More than anything, you want to trust yourself, feel more confident, and be better able to manage overwhelming and painful feelings.
I’m Lily, a sensitive, AuDHD therapist who helps high masking and late identified neurodivergent adults make peace with themselves, strengthen inner trust, and learn to honor their unique needs so they can reduce overwhelm and feel grounded, empowered, & expansive in their identities. I offer a compassionate, trauma-sensitive space where all parts of you are welcome and valued (even the parts you hate!) Together we’ll create a safe container where you can heal old wounds, accept long-rejected parts of yourself, and build a life that supports and embraces your neurotype rather than requiring you to mask 24/7.
My approach celebrates neurodivergence, is LGBTQIA+ and disability affirming, upholds anti-racism and body liberation/fat acceptance/HAES, is sex, kink, and BDSM positive, sex worker affirming, & supports non-monogamy, polyamory, relationship anarchy, and other alternative relationship structures. I draw from a blend of therapeutic approaches, including Internal Family Systems, attachment theory, and somatic therapy. While our therapy goals will be specific to your needs, my foundational aim is to support you in moving through life with more ease, joy, confidence, and connection.
