AS AN ADHD COACH, I'm passionate about partnering with you – adults, college students and parents – to help you (or your child) tap into your strengths and find the focus and motivation to succeed.
EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING &
across the lifespan
Who wants to spend life feeling
unfocused, unproductive and overwhelmed?
There is another way
With my support and guidance, clients figure out what's most important for them and then create a mindful, action-oriented plan that takes advantage of their strengths and keeps them on track.
My collaborative, trauma-informed approach helps clients understand how ADHD affects the way their brains operate and develop strategies to regulate their wacky nervous systems. Clients gain greater awareness of ineffective thinking and behaviors while getting the tools they need to enhance problem-solving, communication, confidence, resilience and productivity.
You know that feeling of going 0 to 60 in no time flat?
Managing ADHD isn't just about getting started on your massive to-do list or keeping your weekly planner up to date. The executive function of EMOTIONAL REGULATION plays a big part in the ups and downs of our day-to-day lives.
That's why my approach combines embodied, somatic techniques and practical, tactical strategies to support you in getting unstuck and shifting the entrenched negative thoughts and behavior patterns frequently associated with ADHD. Through a process of slowing down to pay attention to physical sensations, imagery and emotions, you'll gain tools to reduce overwhelm, increase self-regulation, and renew trust in yourself to take positive, productive action.
What are executive functions anyway?
Very simply, they are a set of cognitive processes that help you get things done. You can have executive function challenges without having ADHD (and many of us do at one time or another), but everyone with ADHD struggles with at least some of the executive functions. Through coaching with someone knowledgeable about how the ADHD brain works, you can build on your strengths to develop the skills that may not come so easily or naturally.
