Episode 180 with Robin Tate.

“It’s given such context to my life. There was such relief in knowing this is just my brain, this is just how it works!”

Robin is an experienced teacher and professional coach. She has a Master’s of Science Degree in Reading and a Master’s of Arts Degree in Counseling. She is trained through the Asperger/Autism Network (AANE) as an AsperCoach as well as a Neurodiverse Couples Coach. 

As a leader in the neurodiversity arena, Robin is setting a new standard for how to think about life through a Neurological lens. She’s committed to helping clients grow and create change in their lives by focusing on their strengths, overcoming challenges, and reaching their goals. Robin also enjoys spending time with her family, growing in her faith and traveling. 

Robin and I talk about her diagnosis 20 years ago at the age of 30 and how her perspective about her own brain has changed since then.

We also talk about giftedness, masking, and the importance of educating all kids about executive functioning as early as possible. 

And we talk about neurodiverse couples coaching and how it differs from couples therapy, as well as some of the specific issues that might come up for couples when one or both partners is neurodivergent, especially around communication and goals.
