Beiseker, Alberta therapist: Jayne Batten, counselor/therapist
Autism and Asperger's

Jayne Batten

Counsellor/Therapist, MSc, CT, RPC, MPCC
I define myself as a “neurodiversity affirming therapist” and feel absolutely honoured to work with neurodiverse individuals and couples. This means I understand and work with autism, ADHD and other neurodiverse groups through the lens of neuroscience. Autism is associated with differences in the brain which result in a divergence from neurotypical standards, in terms of how brains filter and make sense of information. I endeavour to help clients shed misplaced humiliation and a sense of failure by becoming conscious of and removing the notion that ‘typical’ traits are superior. It is the neurodiverse individuals in our society that move humanity along.

Autism and Asperger's

Julie McLennan

Counsellor/Therapist, MA, CCPCPR
Autistic traits can have a huge impact on quality of life. If you have had a late diagnosis or if you suspect that you may have stepped onto the Autism Spectrum, we can explore that and make sure you are living a life that is meaningful to you rather than spending all your time and energy trying to pass as neurotypical.

Autism can create a variety of challenges for individuals. I will work with you on strategies for coping as well as looking at the larger family dynamics (if relevant) to ensure the best support for everyone. Focusing on therapeutic relationship and building trust allows me to help support you while using a solution-focused lens.

Your past does not have to be your future. Autism is a neurological difference that effects how you experience the world. Autism brings advantages and disadvantages. I can help you learn to use your strengths to compensate for your weak areas. Autistic people often struggle with social skills, but social skills like all skills, are things we can learn. Autism means you have a different way of thinking and being in the world. If you are Autistic it is important that the professionals you are working with have a good understanding of neurodiversity in order that they can best support you. I have worked extensively with neurodiverse individuals and have a good understanding of Autism, ADHD, and other neurological differences. Please contact me if you would like to set up a free intake and we can get started on the process of helping you move forward with your future.
