Nat Sanderson, AACC - NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
Diagnosed with ADHD in his 20s, Nat has spent his life driven by community and fascinated by the small things that help people thrive and feel like they belong. Nat’s most powerful experiences were working as a youth group leader for the last decade, where he was able to help his clients untangle their lives and find their inner leader in the midst of much humour and mutual weirdness.
Some of Nat’s areas of specialization include:
- Working with Tradespeople
- Working with children, youth, and families
- Working with LGBTQ populations
- Video Game/Screen Addiction
- Spiritual Counselling
- Counselling for those who self-identify as nerds: Those into D&D, board games, Magic The Gathering, etc.
- Counselling for Athletes and Runners
When Nat discovered his own ADHD, he was able to take the eight years of specialized leadership training he had and better apply it to all aspects of his life. As a result of this training and his extremely thorough certification as an ADHD & Asperger’s/ASD Certified Coach (AACC), he has been better able to understand and harness his own restlessness (he’s now a dedicated runner) and special interests. He now feels so much more fulfilled as he has unlocked the many special abilities that come with his own Neurodivergence (instead of seeing them as burdens) and loves nothing more than helping others do the same for themselves.On the topic of interests, Nat identifies as a huge nerd. Right now, he’s devouring several sci fi novels, and writing his own (he can’t get enough). He’s also been known to dabble in Minecraft, all types of video games, board games (he even created one once professionally), volunteering, and poetry (and a newfound interest in acrylic painting). Also anyone who knows Nat knows that he’s an avid Magic The Gathering player and a dedicated Dungeons and Dragons DM and he is always happy to incorporate any elements of his interests, or the interests of his clients, into his therapy and coaching sessions.
Nat deeply believes that counselling can often be fun and connective, even amidst the extremely hard psychological work that happens in session.

Rachel Gascho MSW, RSW
Rachel is a registered social worker with a great enthusiasm for the neurodivergent mind. She was diagnosed with ADHD at age 9 and it was eye opening! Rachel also has a parent and sibling with ADHD, and is very familiar with the effects it can have on the whole family. As well as supporting others with ADHD, she has experienced many of the challenges associated with ADHD personally, including areas like school, social life, chores, and relationship maintenance. She wants to be the person who helps others harness their neurodivergent minds so they can avoid (or at least be prepared for) the problems that come with living as a neurodivergent person in a neurotypical world. Rachel earned both her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Social Work degrees at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, where she developed a passion for a person-centered approach to therapy (all about what the person needs, not limited by one rigid method), believing that each client has unique challenges, strengths, and needs. She believes that mental health is a key component of overall wellbeing and is often overshadowed by physical health when it is at least equally important. Rachel has experience working with adults with severe intellectual disabilities in a group home setting as well as providing therapy to patients at a primary care office in a community struggling deeply from the results of poverty. Rachel works with clients to develop individualized and manageable goals and coping strategies that consider the whole system the person lives in, as well as to help process the trauma so common in fellow ADHDers & Autistics. Rachel enjoys reading, cooking, baking (and eating!), spending time with family and friends, music, and being outdoors. She loves learning and takes every opportunity she can to expand her knowledge and understanding of the changing world.
