About Me

I understand what it is like to coach and care for someone with a neurodevelopmental condition. My son Patrick, now 24, was diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder at age 9. When my son was diagnosed, the availability of services was extremely limited, so I researched and coached my son to enhance and reinforce his skills, interests (areas of focus), and abilities. In addition, I coached him in areas that were challenging for him, such as social skills, inattentiveness, impulsivity, planning, organizing, and strategies for him to regulate his emotions. I am very proud that my son graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree and a 3.9-grade point average. In addition, he has written and published a fantasy fiction book and produced and composed three piano albums. Due to my coaching work with my son, I decided to listen to my true calling and pursue professional coaching as a career.

 

My coaching specialty is in assisting adults diagnosed with ADHD. I assist individuals with ADHD in order for them to achieve their full potential. I work with adult clients to uncover and use their strengths to overcome the challenges associated with ADHD. If you are having challenges organizing and prioritizing your life, managing your time, regulating your emotions, starting and completing projects and sustaining attention, I can assist you. I have helped many people get their life back on track. My approach is to work collaboratively with you, in a safe and non-judgmental environment, in order to create new routines and habits that are customized to you and your life. My goal is to assist you so that you develop the necessary skills to coach yourself.
