Who Am I

Shawn Smith M.Ed., CCC, LCT is an autistic and ADHD Counsellor and psychotherapist, and the founder of Don’t dis-my-ability® Consultation Services Inc. Shawn helps parents, young people, and adults who are neurodivergent (ADHD/Autism/Dyslexic and more). People believe the main struggles neurodivergent people face, is the fact they are neurodivergent. WRONG! The main struggles Autistic and ADHD people experience are:

  • Lack of self-confidence and self-worth
  • Specific Traumas – primarily those who have lived the autistic and ADHD experiences and struggle to come to terms.
  • Not being accepted for who they are and constantly compared to others.
  • Having to mask their true identities and gifts due to years of oppression – both intentional and unintentional.

Shawn experienced all of the above, has been there, and walked the walk. Shawn can help you navigate through life by providing therapeutic support to ensure success.
When not changing lives and helping neurodivergent people and their support networks develop deeper bonds, Shawn loves chocolate making, collecting retro gaming machines and spending time with his wife and kids.
