  • What are the benefits of coaching?
    I assist students and adults facing challenges in managing their work due to ADHD, diagnosed Executive Function deficits, or other learning differences. Many of these individuals feel frustrated and discouraged, often misunderstood as lazy. Despite their intelligence, they lack the tools and strategies for success. The purpose of a coach is to offer encouragement, strategies, and insights to enhance effectiveness and confidence in life.
  • How long is a coaching session?
    Each session is 50 minutes to an hour each week.
  • How long does the coaching process take?
    Depending on the particular situation, college students are coached for at least a semester , often the academic year. Adults are coached until they feel they reach their main objectives. The time frame is similar to students but can be outside the academic year parameters. The goal is to help clients achieve confidence, competence, and independence as quickly as possible
  • How does coaching differ from tutoring?
    Coaching: Coaching typically focuses on personal and professional development, helping individuals improve their skills, achieve specific goals, and overcome obstacles. It often addresses broader aspects of personal growth, self-discovery, and long-term success. Tutoring: Tutoring is primarily focused on academic subjects and helping individuals understand specific topics or subjects. The goal is often to enhance academic performance, grasp concepts, and succeed in coursework.
  • What are EF skills and why are they important in all facets of life?
    Executive Function refers to the essential self-management skills enabling individuals to attain their goals. To successfully navigate the escalating demands of school, work, and life, individuals need to adeptly handle their emotions and attention, organize and plan their tasks and time, and adapt their strategies in response to changing circumstances. Our objective is to enhance effectiveness by imparting skills that extend beyond current challenges. Coaches employ real-life situations from school or work to develop these crucial Executive Function skills.
  • Do you work with adults who have diagnosed ADHD?
    An adult diagnosed with ADHD may benefit from executive function coaching because ADHD often involves challenges in executive functioning skills. A coach works collaboratively with adults diagnosed with ADHD to develop practical techniques for managing time, setting priorities, organizing tasks, and enhancing overall executive functioning. The goal is to empower individuals to navigate daily life more effectively, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.
