What we're about

This support group is for parents or caregivers of individuals with high-functioning Autism/Aspergers.

The purpose of the group is to have a place where you are supported and guided through your parenting experience and a place to share and learn from one another.

The group is led by Laura Beth DeHority. Laura Beth is a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (IMF 96095, supervisor Julie Nasser, MFC 41524) who completed her M.A. in Marital and Family Therapy at Western Seminary, San Jose, in 2016. She received her B.A. in Business Management and Communications from Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, Virginia. After a career in Public Relations/Social Media, she returned to graduate school as her youngest child entered high school. She is currently pursuing the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) from California Southern University.

Laura Beth’s greatest area of interest is working with families who are touched by special needs. Her work provides support to those who are siblings and long term caregivers, giving them the opportunity to explore solutions that will bring them hope and joy in their circumstances.

She works with couples, siblings, groups and multi-generational families to provide support in areas of family roles and communication, stress reduction, anxiety, depression, grief and addiction.

She is the Immediate Past Board Chair of Via Services (http://www.viaservices.org/), a private, independent non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals with disabilities and special needs achieve greater self-sufficiency and lead richer lives.

This group was created and is supported by Shire House www.shirehouseinc.org (http://www.shirehouseinc.org/)
