WELCOME TO ASPIER

Aspier (pronounced ‘aspire’) is a movement committed to the treatment of all types of rigidities by increasing flexibility and encouraging the development of social skills necessary to progress in all facets of life, including personal relationships. Aspier was founded as a resource for individuals and their loved ones seeking support, answers, and treatment options for a range of behavioral and emotional complexities.

Mental health and wellbeing is a top priority for anyone dealing with the challenges of living in today’s society. The truth is, we all experience difficulties in particular areas. For many of us, the focus is on maintaining or improving the quality of our emotional lives and relationships. There are many diagnoses out there that factor heavily into our success in those areas. Phobias, social anxiety, depression, and obsessive behaviors, just to name a few.

Did you know that sometimes, these are best described as symptoms? Feeling anxious, down, having obsessive thoughts, having difficulty managing anger -and misbehavior in children, especially – are not always end-all-be-all diagnoses. In reality, these are often behavioral outcomes of other internal issues.

Mission Statement

Aspier is a movement providing mental health resources and treatment. Aspier assists individuals who are attempting to manage disorders which hinder them from becoming open, flexible partners and friends. Through the innovation of traditional therapeutic techniques, Aspier seeks to expand our understanding of and resolve rigidities associated with ASD, Asperger’s, OCD, ADHD, and anxiety. Education and treatment through Aspier results in greater social success and emotional growth, as well as improved communication skills and an overall increase in productivity and happiness.
