I work with clients from all over Canada and the United States and currently connect with clients via phone or Skype. Coaching over the phone is just as effective as in person coaching and also allows you to be in your own comfortable and relaxing space wherever it may be. I also conduct in-person sessions within the Calgary area upon request.
If you’re unsure whether coaching is for you or if you want to ask questions and learn more about me and how life coaching works, I offer a free, no obligation 30-minute consultation session.
coaching for your unique brain wiring
I'm an ADHD coach based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and I coach adults, adolescents and children who have ADHD and the loved ones of people with ADHD who are experiencing challenges and are looking for focused support. I also evaluate and design physical environments for people with ADHD at their home, work and school to create conditions for success.
My ADHD coaching practice is rooted in 3 key principles:
1. People with ADHD are not broken, defective or any less capable or intelligent than people without ADHD.
2. When people understand their ADHD and how it shows up for them, they are empowered to be their own best advocates.
3. A positive, strengths-based approach to coaching translates to passion, purpose, self-compassion and successful outcomes in the lives of my clients.
I invite you to find the strengths in your ADHD and bring them into the world.
As a person with ADHD, I've been there and I understand how discouraging it can be to wake up each day feeling misunderstood, different from others, and frustrated by the symptoms of ADHD. Read my story here.
As an ADHD coach, I use my understanding of what it's like to have ADHD along with a positive, strengths-based approach to coaching. This means you'll discover your strengths and ways to take advantage of them as we work together to develop personalized strategies and structure to help you create conditions for success however your ADHD shows up for you.
Common areas of coaching include:
- life and career goals, dreams and ambitions
- understanding your ADHD traits
- discovering your unique strengths, needs and values
- time management, prioritization and organization
- design for ADHD: physical environments designed to create conditions for your success
- physical sensitivities and clutter issues
- decision-making and procrastination
- overwhelm and rumination
- impulsivity, distractibility, lack of focus or motivation
- mental and physical restlessness (hyperactivity)
- developing self-awareness
- life transitions (moving, changing jobs, home-life changes)
- lack of follow through
A special note: You DO NOT need to have an ADHD assessment or diagnosis to be coached.
