About

My Journey

My journey into ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) began 13 years ago when a family member was diagnosed. Like many of my parent clients it was a confusing, fearful and stressful time. I had no knowledge and definitely no skills on how to cope at that time. Well, I've come a long way in 13 years!

Through personal experience and a LOT of learning, and accredited ADHD and Executive Function coaching programs, I am well equipped to help you successfully navigate and move forward into a place of knowledge, understanding and successes.

ADHD is always ON my mind but not IN my mind. As an ADHD Coach without ADHD I see the community and my clients struggle EVERY day; no holiday, no take the day off from ADHD, all the time. I SEE you and I know your struggle is real.

Learning NEW life-long skills (and fine-tuning lagging skills) is critical to your success, both personal and business and for those you love. Knowledge is a BIG piece of our collaborative partnership, and we'll be focusing on YOU and how your ADHD shows up.

I don't know if I'm the right ADHD Coach for you, but if this information resonates with you, then reach out and we can explore available options.

I'm an organizer by default; it was how I was 'wired'. I spent most of my career life as a successful event planner of large events for my clients. It seemed a natural progression to move into coaching, utilizing many of the organizational tools I have learned and fine-tuned over the years. I've not looked back; coaching is my passion and your successes reinforce that every day!

I received additional specialized training in ADHD and accredited coaching (AACC) through ADD Coach Academy; having graduated their ADHD Simply/PT/Basic plus Fundamentals of Family coaching. ADDCA is an accredited ADHD and Life Coach Training Program. ADDCA is the global leader and pioneer in the specialty arena of ADHD coach training and the first and largest comprehensive ADHD coach training program fully accredited by ICF (International Coach Federation) and PAAC (Professional Association for ADHD Coaches).

 

Other Certification: Social Thinking®, Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS Advanced), Exploring the Nurtured Heart Approach, Education and Enrichment of Relationship Skills (PEERS®) UCLA * Certified PEERS Provider via in-person or Telehealth.
