Find a therapist that can help with Intellectual Disabilities

Intellectual disabilities are a group of developmental disorders characterized by limitations in intellectual functioning (such as reasoning, problem-solving, and learning) and adaptive behavior (such as communication, self-care, and social skills). Intellectual disabilities typically manifest during childhood and persist into adulthood, affecting an individual's ability to function independently and effectively in daily life. The severity of intellectual disabilities can vary widely, ranging from mild to profound, and can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetic abnormalities, brain damage, and environmental factors.

Therapy can be a valuable tool for individuals with intellectual disabilities, helping them to build their independence, emotional well-being, and sense of purpose. A therapist can work with the individual to develop practical skills related to communication and daily living activities, as well as provide emotional support and coping strategies to manage the challenges associated with their disability. By working with a therapist, individuals with intellectual disabilities can develop a greater sense of self-esteem and identity, and work towards greater independence and overall well-being.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
