Neurodiversity-Affirming Therapy, Training and Advocacy

Our Story

After many years of research and teaching in University settings, Wendy McGuire made an abrupt mid-life career change to work with the neurodivergent. There were few, if any, services for neurodivergent adults at the time. She wanted to change that. It was personal. Wendy is a mom, friend, colleague, teacher, and therapist to neurodivergent people of all ages and walks of life. And so Scattergram was founded – where neurodivergence is the norm.

Registered Social Worker

🗺️ Ontario, Canada

I provide traditional counselling services for mental health struggles (anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, self-harm, sex and gender identity stuff, etc.). I also provide non-traditional counselling based on my understanding of how neuroatypical brains and nervous systems work.

Meet the Therapists

Scattergram Associates are deeply committed to bringing a fresh approach to the growth and wellbeing of neurodivergent youth and adults.

Occupational Therapist

🗺️ Ontario & Alberta, Canada

I am an Occupational Therapist who works with youth and adults to support them in participating fully in activities that are meaningful to them and bring them joy. I work collaboratively with neurodivergent individuals who are experiencing challenges with work, school, and other daily activities due to difficulties with executive functions, sensory processing differences, or other challenges.

Registered Social Worker

🗺️ Ontario, Canada

I’m a Registered Social Worker with a heart for helping youth (ages 14+) and adults who think and perceive differently, particularly those with ADHD/Neurodivergence or those who may identify as Twice or Thrice exceptional. I also support those experiencing the complex challenges of substance use. My Neurodivergent experience has profoundly influenced my passion for sharing space in therapy with other neurodivergent people.

Registered Social Worker and Group Facilitator

🗺️ Ontario, Canada

I am a Registered Social Worker who works with youth, ages 12 to 29, and their families, using a queer and neurodiversity-affirming framework. Being trans, queer, and neurodivergent myself, I am passionate about the ways our various identities intersect and strive to work with others to recognize, navigate, and dismantle the unique barriers we face. Through my education and personal experience, I hope to create a therapeutic environment where all feel welcome, valued, and encouraged to be their authentic selves.

Client Support Administrator

I am a highly sensitive, multi-passionate, old soul with a love for holistic health, self-discovery and spirituality. I am passionate about cultivating an environment that promotes individuality – where people can feel fully expressed. With a background in healthcare administration, and as someone who doesn’t thrive in your typical 9-5, I have a vision for our community where systems and institutions empower people by adapting our systems to the human being and not the other way around.

“We cannot shame ourselves into change, we can only love ourselves into evolution.” – Dr. James Rouse
