Come Get Weird in the Woods With Me?

A green cartoon tent with pine trees and a crescent moon in the background. There are two cartoon brain characters next to the tent. One has headphones on and is dancing and listening to music, and the other has a magnefying glass and is looking for something. At the bottom, there is yellow and green text that reads "AuDHD Summer Camp"

Have you ever wished there was a place in the middle of the woods somewhere, where you could go and meet other people who didn’t give a crap about how “weird” you are?

Where your auDHD traits are not only seen and accepted, but celebrated and admired.

A place where you could go and find the safety to be able to finally figure out who exactly it is you are underneath that mask you didn’t realize you were wearing all these years.

Where, instead of being met with blank stares and looks of confusion when you tell someone about your struggles, you’re met with a chorus of “Oh my gosh, me too!” and “Yes, same!”

That’s exactly what you’ll find at AuDHD Summer Camp!

    Statement of Scope and Competency

     

    I strive to hold space and offer solutions that are human-centered, trauma-informed, and inclusive of each individual’s lived experience and social identities. I have completed a trauma-informed space holding curriculum, am actively engaged in anti-racism study and work, and in deconstructing capitalistic standards and values. 

    I want to make it clear that I cannot guarantee a safe space for you. I recognize that you are the judge of what feels safe and expansive for you. My intention is to allow you to access your internal safety as best as you can in our current social climate through ample consent, choice, and clarity in our time together.

    My offers and services are not meant to be a replacement for therapy. I will remain within my scope of practice when engaging with you and my work, and will refer out to qualified individuals for more aligned support when necessary. 

    I acknowledge the privileges I hold as a working class white American citizen with settler ancestry and post-secondary education who can pass as neurotypical, straight, and able-bodied. While my position as a queer, disabled, neurodivergent person with mostly-stable mental health has allowed me to generate more insights and compassion into these lived experiences, I am committed to listening, learning, decolonizing, and growing in regards to other areas.

    With gratitude and respect, I acknowledge that the land on which I live and work is the stolen ancestral territory of the Haudenosaunee and Onondaga peoples. I aim to live in a way that centers reconciliation and meaningful relationship building between the people of this land and how we care for it. I invite you to reflect on your role in reconciliation and the Land Back movement at www.native-land.ca.
