EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE MATTERS

In addition to my training as an ADHD coach, I am a licensed special education teacher, neurodiverse student advocate, and behavioral consultant. I specialize in working with those with moderate to severe cognitive and developmental delays. The combination of my training in education and coaching gives me the ability to assist my clients in understanding their own unique brain wiring. It's essential to understand the ADHD brain's neuroscience in a way that's individualized to the client because after all, everyone's different. Through coaching with me, clients learn that their strengths can compensate for any challenge they may have. They learn how to use their executive functions to their advantage and succeed in any task at hand.
