• Dr Natalia Rusnac Psychologist Therapist Psychotherapy Autism ASD ADHD Neurodiversity

     

     

    One of the reasons I love being a therapist is that I get to witness people rewrite the story about who they are.

     

  • Welcome to my Online Clinic!

     

    My name is Natalia. I am a multilingual Clinical Psychologist living in Australia. I am passionate about offering neurodiversity-affirming psychotherapy! Coping is not the same as being happy. My mission is to go beyond coping and help nerodivergent clients know themselves deeply and build lives that bring them joy.

     

    I have a special interest in working with clients who:

    • wonder if they might be neurodivergent but were never formally diagnosed;
    • have already received a formal diagnosis of autism and/or ADHD.

     

    Does this resonate with you?

    • You are not quite sure who you are behind the masking;
    • Deep down you know you have so much potential to tap into, but unresolved trauma is holding you back;
    • You feel "tired and wired" most of the time;
    • You already know a lot about autism and ADHD, but struggle to create a life that suits your unique neurotype;
    • You are caught up in a frustrating tug of war between your high need for structure and your difficulty maintaining it, aka procrastination;
    • You are longing to feel connected to the world without having to "fit in";
    • You don't feel ready to undergo a formal diagnostic assessment of autism and ADHD, but you are curious to learn more about how neurodivergence relates to you.
    • If you think this might be you, don't hesitate to get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
