ABOUT ME

Hello and welcome! My name is Adela Stone. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I'm passionate about helping both neurotypical and neurodivergent couples learn how to reconnect, rebuild trust, deepen mutual understanding and empower their intimacy. 

I am a couples specialist so you will be getting an approach tailored to your relationship needs, taking into account all the dynamics between you and your partner.  

Special and ongoing training in neurodiverse approaches enables me to be uniquely suited to help neurodivergent couples. 

I also have a Master’s degree in Journalism which I received in the Czech Republic where I'm from. This knowledge helps me ask the right questions at the right time and sift through information in order to get to the deep-rooted issues.

I speak three languages and understand the need to tailor therapy based on cultural backgrounds. My experience as an immigrant helps me empathize with client’s life challenges, and my early parental and spousal losses enable me to connect with others in mourning.  

I am married and have two stepchildren. I know how challenging blended families can be. 

Having been a client in couples therapy myself, I can understand how big of a step it is for you to reach out for help. It means that you refused to give up. I am in the business of hope and will do my best to turn that hope into tangible progress for you and your partner. 

Every couple is unique and we will work on therapy goals together, however, you can expect me to draw from Emotionally Focused Therapy, Attachment theory, Imago, Internal Family Systems, The Gottman Method, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. 

I welcome humor, sarcasm and irreverent communication in sessions if that helps you experience relief or a form of deeper connection.
