- Rachael, Curriculum Director, Mountain City Public Montessori

My agency collaborated with Kara. She is incredibly resourced, informative, clear, and patient with her ability to explain how neurobiology impacts behavior and emotions, and give youth/clients/parents helpful and empowering strategies to help them better understand their brains, navigate their challenges, and access their strengths. I have never experienced another professional who is able to understand and clearly explain neurodivergence and how to navigate it in real world situations so well!.

- Kirstie F., Helpmate Youth Outreach Specialist

Kara was such peace of mind when my family had to deal with a new diagnosis and the side effects of the new medicines.  Kara was able to explain the complicated medical diagnosis and meds in terms that were simple and easy to understand.  Kara helped explained options and things we should consider.  This in turn helped us with the doctors and getting our daughter the best treatment possible. So grateful for her help during that difficult time.

- Sue M.

After 6 years of struggles to understand my young son and after many therapies, parenting techniques, research, and modalities that never made a difference, in one conversation, Kara understood. We had been constantly seeking and trying and I never before experienced such a level of complete and specific understanding of what we'd been through. She changed our lives with the information she brought and provided further resources to help us along a path. Throughout this process, she was humble, kind, and compassionate. As I read through the resources she sent, I laughed and cried. So many years of misunderstanding -- of banging our heads against the wall when advice didn't work -- of feeling alone and isolated in our experience were over. Kara's insight brought clarity and hope. It's been the most important information I've ever received as a mom. I can never thank her enough.

Kara is that all-too-rare professional who has both all the skill sets & knowledge you could need AND a wonderfully kind, supportive manner that can quickly put you at ease. She handles topics that may be difficult for Clients to share with a new person w/ care & gently & consistently crafts an atmosphere in which one feels heard & considered, is given achievable-at-your-level guidance & is networked in such a way as to help inform you as to how you may want to set-up & address your care team in different situations. She was integral to assisting me in addressing some very complex health concerns that overlap in may areas. Working w/ Kara has helped me to re-empower myself in my own self-advocacy & get back on a path of action that gives me a much clearer avenue to pursue & I'm hopeful for the first time in a long time. I highly recommend her - whether for an assessment, ongoing work and/or just to check in to get to know her & see if your needs are compatible w/ what she's able to offer & do - which is a lot! I wish anyone reading this kudos in working towards your own health & care.

Kara Nash has been an invaluable resource to me as an autistic parent to a child with autism and complex medical conditions. She is an exceptional autism consultant who possesses an unparalleled understanding of the diverse medical and mental health needs of individuals on the spectrum. Her expertise in navigating the complex landscape of autism spectrum disorders is truly remarkable. She is not only a brilliant educator, but also a top-tier trainer and public speaker. Her ability to articulate the nuances of autism and its associated challenges is enlightening and engaging. I have witnessed firsthand her talent in conveying complex information in a clear and accessible manner, making her a valuable resource for families, communities, and healthcare professionals alike. What sets her apart is not only the depth but also the breadth of her knowledge. Her passion for educating others about autism is evident in everything she does. She goes above and beyond to raise awareness, fostering a greater understanding of the unique and often conflicting needs of individuals on the spectrum. I wholeheartedly endorse her as a leading expert in the field of autism consultancy. Her dedication to advocating for individuals on the autism spectrum is genuinely inspiring, and her impact extends far beyond the boundaries of her work. If you are seeking a consultant who is not only knowledgeable and skilled but also compassionate and dedicated, look no further. It is a privilege to recommend her without reservation.

Kara Nash is my go-to professional for all things concerning my 13-year-old daughter. She makes me feel that meeting my daughter's needs is her top priority... her information is always backed with research, and she explains everything in an open and honest manner that's easy to understand.

Kara has been an incredible support for me in my healing journey. She provided me understanding, connection, and resources that helped me better understand and accept my autism.

- Lyndon M

"Kara Nash has a passion for advocacy in the autism community. She is brilliant, compassionate, and shares her knowledge in such relatable ways."

- Heather H, Director of Camp Lakey Gap for Autistic Individuals

"If you are an adult, child, or family member managing and living with ASD, Kara can really help you navigate the health care system and learn more about all of your treatment options. Her work as a nurse allows her to help individuals and families avoid scams, review the benefits of supplements, understand the different types of medications, and get insight into what their children are likely trying to communicate through their so-called "behaviors". 

- Sarah B

"Kara is definitely a person you want on your team! Her intimate knowledge of the autism world along with her detailed research skills are invaluable. Kara is a practical "get things done" type of person. Call her today to help you navigate the autism world."

- Dr Janet L, WNC Naturopathic Medicine

Very knowledgeable, caring, and personable. She cared for me when I had surgery, letting the nurses know that I was having a reaction to the post-operative medication immediately stopping the vomiting I was experiencing. She also cared for me, daily cleaning the sutures in my scalp. On another occasion, she helped me through an incident where I was having a severe reaction to antibiotics that my doctor had missed.

- Lou V

Great to have the information delivered by a nurse who is fundamentally acquainted with the material. I learned a lot. 

- Lenoir-Rhyne presentation attendee

I remember you as a highlight of my years as a camper
