Unmasking with the Values Based Integration Process

Affordable, Accessible Second Suites

First views of the first accessible, affordable second suite in Barrie. Every day I hear stories of families and individuals who are not only trapped in the unaffordable rental market, but trapped while dealing with major accessibility needs for themselves or a family member.

The level of increased disability these situations cause – both for disabled individuals and for their caregivers – is insane. Mental health issues, back problems, hygiene issues, nutrition issues, injuries – the list goes on.

In fact, I’ve read so many of these stories recently that I had a dream about a person in this situation just before I woke up and when the alarm went off my pillow was covered in tears.

We know that two units won’t solve the accessible affordable housing crisis – not by a long shot – but when each of us show up and do our part it’s amazing where that momentum can take us!

Lots of work to do – the view will get better – but it now exists!

About the program

In 2017 I was newly self-diagnosed with atypical autism, struggling with burnout, and striking out when it came to therapists who could address the issues I was facing. At the same time, I was building skills around life coaching, shame reduction, and trauma-informed therapy for work. Gradually I realized that what I needed – an embodied, autonomous, agency-driven coaching approach to unmasking – was not something I was going to find “out there”, but something I was going to need to create if I wanted to recover my life. This was the moment the Values Based Integration Process was born.

Having developed the program for myself – and having seen the incredible results it brought in my own life – I began to use it with coaching clients. The results were out of this world!

After conversations with Dr. Devon Price, the technique was featured in his book Unmasking Autism. With it, came interest in the technique and the decision was made to begin training coaches and therapists to help make this toolkit more readily available.
