Who is a gifted adult? It is a commonly misunderstood term with a limited traditional definition, often associated only with IQ. The reality is that there are multiple types of extraordinary abilities (including creativity!) not captured in that conventional conception of giftedness.
Being gifted also comes with its own unique challenges due to the overall experience of feeling misunderstood (and being misunderstood) by others. Here are some common concerns that I see in gifted clients:
Think you may be gifted, but therapy hasn't been helpful in the past? Many gifted people are repeatedly misdiagnosed, so it is crucial that you work with a therapist who has worked with and have a nuanced understanding of your unique challenges, without resorting to labels and categories.
I have had the honor of supporting the unique needs of many gifted clients at Method and would love to work with you.
