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.
