Let me tell you a little about myself...
I've worked as a Nuclear Medicine professional at a prestigious medical facility for 23 years. As our children began to grow up, I could see that what seemed to be easy for other parents, such as simple everyday tasks and social behaviors; such as time management, goal-setting, problem-solving and simple organization were becoming problematic for me. I began to feel overwhelmed by the inherent journey being laid out before me. I made it my life's mission to try to understand why everything seemed so much harder than it should be. In my quest to try to understand this ADHD diagnosis, I consulted numerous experts on both the medical side and the psychological side, including therapists and teachers in the field of ADHD. I exhaustively and thoroughly began researching every aspect of this new life hurdle in order to try to fully understand it, so we, as a family, could address it head-on.
I loved working with kids and adults in the medical field, but I found that my true passion was to help those that struggle with the stigma and challenges of ADHD. I conducted comprehensive research and discovered THE premier school of ADHD/LIFE Coaching and signed up!
My training has been outstanding! The personal instruction I underwent included all aspects in regards to the ADHD brain's neuroscience with the tools and resources on how to discover and access the gifts of these neuro-diverse populations. My studies include specific ADHD training in regards to adults, children and family. I decided to shift my career from a Nuclear Medicine Technologist to ADHD coaching/Life Coach.
I bring empathy and practical knowledge to my coaching strategies so kids and adults can discover their inner resilience. I cannot think of anything more fulfilling as to help you and/or your family explore all the potential options that will work for you and or your families individual needs.
An ADHD Coach is a Life Coach with an ADHD Lens. My training has extensive ADHD education included. Everyone has unique brain wiring which is integral in understanding the way one learns. What works for one, may not work for another, which is why ADHD coaching is specific to the client's needs.
I'm working on my certification through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), which is considered the leading global organization for life/ADHD coaches. I am pursing the ADD Coaching Academy's (ADDCA ) Family-Trained, Advanced ADHD & LIFE Coach Training program. I feel I have a down-to-earth coaching style and bring humor and compassion (My top two of my character strengths). We'll talk more about that later.
I will encourage you to shift your mindset and accept something new. I am committed to creating a judgement free, safe zone.
Please contact me if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Coaching sessions can be conducted in person, on the phone, or via Google meet. Before the coaching process occurs, the client and coach should have a preliminary meeting that addresses topics such as clients needs, expectations, fees and anticipated length of time for the coaching.
100%! What happens in our sessions stays in our sessions, just like seeing a therapist.
The length of time that your coaching process will take depends on the complexity of your goals and your commitment and openness to your process.
Function is just as important as a diagnosis. If you are struggling or need support because of executive functioning skills, I can help you. (Ex. starting/completing tasks, organization, working memory, emotional regulation, time management, etc.). Coaching is an interactive experience where we discover your goals and your passions and use them to help you travel down a path to the life you want.
No problem! You can reach me by phone or email between sessions.
