    Race Report: Barrie Waterfront 5K

    After our fabulous race on Wednesday, Captains Justin, Jaxon and myself decided we were gluttons for punishment and we came back this morning for another race – this time the Barrie Waterfront 5K! We packed up the car in the rain, with the wind picking up, and at 6:30 in the morning a race in… Continue reading

    Race Report: Barrie Rotary Fun Run

    The last Wednesday in May is the annual Barrie Rotary Fun Run. This race has been part of our annual calendar since we first moved to Barrie in 2008, and this year was no different! The weather was about as good as we have ever had it – 20 degrees, partly cloudy, and hardly any… Continue reading

    Race Report – Scotiabank Half Marathon

    Yesterday was the day we’d been training for all summer! After over four months of waiting for my chair it shipped over a week ago. Problems with delays at the factory where it was made, and then issues with shipping meant that by Friday afternoon it was stuck in a semi-truck at the UPS Depot… Continue reading

    Upcoming Race Schedule

    It’s time to see what all of that training this summer has done for us. We’ve got three races that we’re scheduled for coming up, and since it’s always fun to have a cheering squad/support team, sponsors and teammates, I thought I would send out a quick post with the dates so that everyone was… Continue reading

    Wheel Covers!

    So thanks to my amazing friend Mar, at Art in House, we have just submitted our incredible design for our wheel covers for the new racing chair!! I am beyond excited, my friends! The requirement from the manufacturer was that since we were purchasing the chair with myTeamTriumph Canada’s assistance, their logo and website had to… Continue reading

    Toronto Waterfront 10K – Race Report

    This week’s race started with a gruelling 4:20 am alarm! But the sky was starting to lighten already and we slipped into our race gear, grabbed our pre-made banana-peanutbutter-walnut-chocolate-chip muffins, and headed out the door by 4:45. We stopped to pick up our friend Sarah – gamely joining us as an ‘angel’ today, along with… Continue reading

    It’s For Real!

    Just wanted to post and let everyone know that the bank transfer has happened, and the chair has been ordered! I can hardly believe that this has happened – and am blown away by how quickly it happened! You guys! We raised just over $8000 in under two weeks. I feel incredibly encouraged and humbled… Continue reading

  • A Chair Of My Own

    A Chair Of My Own

    So I’ve been using the Advance Mobility stroller for the past few weeks, and while I am grateful for it, there are two issues with the trial chair I’ve been using. The first is obvious – it isn’t mine! The chair I’ve been using is one of myTeam Triumph’s chairs, and  needs to be available… Continue reading

    First Race – Sporting Life 10K

    The day started out beautiful and sunny – not hot for me in the chair (hence my extra layers) but warm and comfortable provided the sun stayed out from behind the clouds! This was our first ever race in the Advance Mobility stroller through myTeamTriumph Canada. Because of this wonderful charity, we had the chance… Continue reading

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.
