Ask an Autistic with ADHD/Epilepsy

1


1 per hour - Virtual OK

There are some people on Simbi who are giving incorrect information about various neurological conditions so I think it would be responsible of me to answer people's questions truthfully. Incorrect information is unacceptable to me as an adult.

These include Asperger Syndrome (now reclassified as autism spectrum disorder); ADHD; and epilepsy because they feel that as a parent of someone who might have this disorder that they know what it is like. These particular three are connected. ADHD is now being considered a possible spectrum disorder.

I am more than happy to clear up any misconceptions you have about Aspergers / autism, ADHD, epilepsy, generalized anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress, and what it is like to live with these disorders.

It is only fair that I do this in order to protect those who cannot protect themselves. That is my purpose in life, so don't ever say that autistics are selfish. :)

I am happy to do this for a simbi. If you want to donate more or want to combine services like ftm as well, you can and I am not going to say no or complain about it.

Training & Qualifications


I am an adult with diagnosed moderate autism specifically the form that was previously called Asperger Syndrome.

Additionally, I have been diagnosed with ADHD, epilepsy, PTSD, and generalized anxiety. I am also transgender a common issue with autistics.

I have a medical license which gives me more of an insight into my own diagnosis as well as a BS in Anthropology and Human Biology (focusing on evolution of behaviour), MS in Space Studies (focus on aerospace psychology) and am currently pursuing a graduate degree in psychology.

Availability & Preferences


This depends on if you want to do email or phone/Skype.

Email I am usually available.

Phone/Skype I am not always available. I can send you an acuity scheduling link for if you want to talk on the phone or Skype if we aren't both available at the same moment.. Or you can go to my profile page, use the personal website link as it is my Simbi scheduling and it goes right into my scheduler. It also sends you a reminder before the appointment and all the ways to get ahold of me.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

On my end had some technical difficulties and I felt bad but he still helped answer my questions and was a joy to talk to :) I learned some things and am now able to better understand of the autism spectrum and what some people with autism may go through.

About Melvin Marsh CHt MS NREMT

Melvin Marsh is a practicing certified hypnotherapist in Augusta Georgia with particular interests in medical hypnosis, fear, and anxiety. While attending medical school, hypnotherapy was suggested to... him to deal with his own anxiety problem caused by a residual medical phobia. As hypnotherapy started to relieve the symptoms, he realized he could use hypnosis to help his future patients. Eventually he realized he liked hypnotherapy much more than biochemistry and he left medical school to pursue his studies at HMI College of Hypnotherapy, the only nationally accredited college of hypnotherapy in the United States. He graduated with honours. Melvin's educational background includes a B.S. in Anthropology and Human Biology from Emory University, a M.S. in Space Studies (focus on aerospace psychology) from the University of North Dakota, and has completed an extensive amount of study on Webyeshiva. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in psychology so he can become a clinical hypnotherapist and be certified by the NBCCH. He became a certified hypnotherapist under the strict guidelines of the Hypnotherapist's Union, the strictest certifying agency in the country requiring an additional 80 clinical hours over that of the National Guild. His practice, After Hours Hypnotherapy, specializes in care after normal business hours and on weekends in order to better serve the busy professional. Melvin additionally has the following certifications : Master Hypnotist Certified Hypnotherapist (C.Ht.) Certified Past Life Therapist Certified Specialist in ADD/ADHD Hypnosis Certified Specialist in Pre and Post Surgery Hypnosis Certified Specialist in Smoking Cessation Certified Specialist in Sports Performance Hypnosis Certified Specialist in Trauma Recovery Hypnosis Certified Advanced Handwriting Analyst (C.A.H.A.) Melvin has been interviewed by top podcasts, including being interviewed by the famous Adam Eason of Hypnosis Weekly and is much in demand as a speaker and teacher. When Melvin is not seeing clients, he can be found playing with his dogs, watching bad vampire films, being an activist for transgender rights (he is a ftm), cooking gourmet food, harassing and embarrassing his partner and his daughter, and fighting off the cries of "Eat me" from the mountain of chocolate in his pantry. He can also sometimes be seen attempting to complete crazy things on his Bucket List. The business itself is called "After Hours Hypnotherapy" which you can search for.
