Hello and thank you for visiting my page!
I'm Adrianne, a Registered Nurse specialized in Autism and Neurodiversity. My husband and I have been blessed with two amazing children. We live in beautiful Maple Ridge, British Columbia. I work with families in my local community and online around the world.
My journey into motherhood and learning about Autism has sparked immense personal and professional growth and a deeper appreciation for life, love and relationships. I understand the complexities of being a neurodivergent family and raising uniquely wired children in the midst of our quickly changing world.
I have been working with Neurodivergent individuals, their loved ones, carers and educators since 2016. As a Neurodiversity Nurse, I use person-centred evidence-based knowledge and techniques to help each client and family achieve their goals and enhance their lives. I work mostly with parents and educators and have expertise working with autistic girls and women.
I practice from a neurodiversity framework and I am passionate about autism acceptance. I endeavour to expand the understanding of autism through consulting, workshops and advocacy. I believe in the power of shared lived experience to foster connection and hope.
I bring a unique background and perspective to my work as a Neurodiversity Nurse. I have practiced as a Registered Nurse in diverse practice settings for almost ten years. I have my Bachelor of Science in Nursing with Honours. I also have certifications in Coaching, Safe & Sound Protocol, Connection-Based Parenting, Trauma-Informed Practice, Self-Reg, Relationship Development Intervention (RDI), Perinatal Nursing, Indigenous Cultural Competency as well as other Certificates in different areas of interest. I have worked and run programs in rural and urban communities in Public Health, Community Health and Maternity Nursing. My professional background and holistic family approach to care combined with my experience providing individualized care makes Autism & Neurodiversity Consulting and parent coaching a natural fit for me.
Client Focus: Autistic and neurodivergent parents and parents of neurodivergent children, including Autism Spectrum, ADHD, learning differences. Educators of neurodivergent children and teens.
Family- and Person-Centred
Working with children, families, educators and carers in a meaningful way that promotes happiness and a better quality of life is my passion. If you feel that we might be a good fit, feel free to connect with me by phone, message or email.
Big hugs, Adrianne
