"I became a life skills coach with the specific intent to help people that are having difficulty with some or all executive functions, so they can lead a more successful and satisfying life.
After spending over 10 years working with my daughter who has ADHD and developing strategies to help her succeed, I knew that I needed to share my passion and skills. I completed my ACSTH coach training in March of 2017 and then became ACC certified that summer. Since then, I have hundreds of hours of coaching experience with both youth and adults.
I have a masters degree from Johns Hopkins University and received a teaching certificate from Old Dominion University. I am a member of the ADHD Resource Group of NoVA, CHADD, and the ADHD Coaches Organization ACO.
Whether the focus is on academics, work or any other aspect of life, I am passionately committed to helping my clients reach their goals."

Coaching is a method in which YOU, the client, figure out what works for YOU with the assistance of a coach. The coaching process empowers a person to try new ways of doing things that might not have been considered previously.
The coach utilizes a thought-provoking and creative process to inspire the client. A partnership between the coach and client develops to maximize the client's potential.
Coaching is completely goal-focused. Long and short term realistic goals are identified and actions to reach these goals are created. Sessions then focus on the actions and next steps to reach those goals. Coaching IS NOT therapy and is not covered by insurance plans.
These are just some of the executive functions we can work on together.
planning: short & long term goals & action plans for school, college and work
time management; dealing with procrastination, being late, not completing projects
prioritizing; putting what you don't want to do "first"
organizing; paperwork, calendar, rooms, balancing life in general
paying attention; staying focused on teachers, supervisors, meetings, projects
proper social skills; getting along with coworkers, making friends, filtering
controlling impulses; managing thoughts internally, social media
