Learn the skills you need to thrive.
When you are an adult with ADHD, survival mode often feels like the norm. But there are concrete steps you can take to get to a more calm and successful place. I specialize in helping women and members of the LGBTQ+ community improve their wellbeing by understanding their ADHD brains and building adaptive skills and strategies that fit their lives. I also work with the partners of ADHD clients who want to create a supportive and loving environment.
Here is just a small sample of the types of skills and strategies my clients ask for help with: managing a to-do list, prioritizing tasks, setting up daily routines, exploring a new meditation practice, finding a path to consistent physical activity, improving impulse control, escaping cyclical thought patterns, improving social skills through self-awareness and emotional intelligence, and forming better habits around sleep, screens, and shopping.
Your ADHD Brain
I love ADHD brains. I take a neurobiological approach to understanding ADHD, but I use stories and metaphors to help you understand what is happening in your brain so that you don’t need a biology degree to get a clearer picture of your ADHD.
& Time Management
Organization and Time Management skills are rarely gifts we ADHDers possess. We can work to improve and train these skills, or I can help you develop and learn adaptive strategies to reach specific goals.
Learning How to
Set and Meet Goals
I use the SMART Goal System to guide clients to set clearly defined goals. If we can set targets that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Bound, we can start to notice and celebrate our successes. These goals can be small, but their effect is not.
An ADHD Coach fills in the gaps left by the other professionals in your treatment circle. A therapist isn’t going to help you find your best to-do list strategies or give advice on how to get your kids out of bed on time in the morning. The psychiatrist probably wont have helpful ideas for how to make screen time limits for your family. The doctor that diagnosed you will probably not have the time to help you discover each way ADHD has been holding you back at home and at work.
A coach helps with all of these things and more.
As a coach, I use evidence-based information to educate my clients about ADHD. I work with them to help develop stronger emotional regulation and executive function, create practical solutions in their day-to-day lives, and even help them find self-acceptance. Anything to help them find their footing post-diagnosis.
All of my coaching is custom. We will talk about your personal experiences and answer your questions. I may suggest articles, books or podcast episodes that will help you make sense of your ADHD symptoms, but it is all tailored to you. I work toward helping you be self sufficient and all of our exercises and strategies will be geared to preparing you to thrive without me.
