Amelia Galier Slama, LPCC (she/her)

Previously “Amelia Galier Louis”

Founder & Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Hey there! I’m Amelia Galier Slama. I’m an openly autistic counselor based in Cleveland, OH. I created this practice in November 2020. Before starting my own practice, I worked in community mental health, school, and research settings across the state of Ohio. I decided to start my own practice after being diagnosed as autistic and learning about the neurodiversity movement. My goal was to create a neurodiversity affirming practice that offers affordable and easily accessible services.

In May 2021, I created the Neurodivergent Therapists Directory with the help of Charene Creative. The goal in creating this directory was to help neurodivergent clients find neurodivergent providers. I realized how important this was due to my own lived experience. The directory started with a handful of providers in Ohio and now includes providers in over 45 US States and 10 International Countries.

I currently offer individual therapy services (Ohio & Kentucky), consultation services, and presentations on neurodiversity affirming care. My focus is on supporting people who have experienced differences related to autism, ADHD, OCD, trauma, LGBTQIA+, trans and gender diversity, chronic health and disability.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time working in my garden, learning about native trees and wildlife, collecting things, reading non-fiction, and going on adventures with my dogs and husband.
