Get to know us
Prior to coaching with Autism Personal Coach, Bernard taught college writing. Bernard is also an editor, who uses the skills they’ve acquired helping people meet their writing goals to helping those on the spectrum meet their various life goals. Bernard holds a Ph.D. in creative writing and literature; their primary interests are literature and writing, as well as film, cats, and the video game Rocket League. Because Bernard is autistic with multiple neurodivergences, including ADHD and dyscalculia, they are also deeply interested in neurodiversity. They believe that despite the struggles neurodivergents face while navigating a neurotypical society, neurodivergence is a set of evolutionary advantages, gifts, and that once challenges are faced and worked through, neurodivergents can learn to fully utilize their neurodivergence as advantages, using their atypical traits to achieve their goals.

Her previous work is primarily based on the research of leadership, social role theory, multiple intelligence, mindfulness, and positive psychology. She loves working with people who want to overcome a specific challenge, achieve a big goal, start a new and exciting habit, or realize a long-time dream.

I help those I coach by meeting them where they are. If you’re facing a stressful situation, I’ll work with you to identify your objectives and practice useful strategies. I can provide you with valuable insights and helpful tools, thanks to my experiences as an educator and with my own neurodiverse family members. Personally, I am particularly interested in health and fitness and enjoy aerobics, yoga, light weight training, and run local 5k races. I also love writing and contribute to a variety of educational blogs and research outlets.
As a coach, I assist my clients in reaching their goals by closely listening to them and tailoring my approach to their specific needs. I help those I coach to become more organized, develop consistent self-care routines, improve relationships, and reduce anxiety. When I’m not coaching I like to run, workout, cook, and spend time with my children and friends. I feel calm after physical activity as it helps me to “reset” my brain. I have just recently gotten back into running, and now I even run races sometimes. My children keep me busy and happy, but what I love the most is to go out with my friends. I simply love the good food and inspiring discussions we share! Back to Locations List
