Need a Coach with Something Extra?
Before training and becoming credentialed as coaches, the people in this directory worked as organizing and productivity consultants, working side-by-side with clients at their businesses or homes. A few of them worked as ADHD or neurodiversity educators or networkers. Their coach training was virtual and they now deliver all services virtually, although some still also work onsite.
However, it’s their on-site client experiences that give these coaches something extra. They have logged hundreds of hands-on hours with clients, addressing broken-down systems and the lack of systems. They’ve witnessed clients struggling in person with self-criticism, overwhelm, backlogged projects, clutter, and failed strategies. And they helped their clients reclaim their confidence, strategies and spaces — and made them work.
Coaches understand the challenges of change. Change happens for people when the need is undeniable, when a new perspective is embraced, and when choice and focus combine. It’s easy to underestimate the status quo-reinforcing impact of environments (things, systems, shifting mindsets, and other people). Our coaches are extraordinary because they have a deep understanding of their clients’ in-the-trenches factors and realities.
You may want a coach who can join you in your environment or meet you in person. The directory allows you to search for the professionals in your area. But, if you don’t need hands-on help, choose the coach who best fits your needs based on criteria other than location. We have learned much about working long-distance — and coaching is suited to take advantage of that convenience, efficiency and privacy.

I help parents, adults, young adults, and entrepreneurs living with ADHD stay on track, create calm, and bring out the best in their kids and themselves so they can fire up their motivation and create the life they want. As a mom of three grown kids who have ADHD, learning disabilities, and anxiety, I understand the emotional roller coaster that goes with our efforts to shoulder the burdens to support our kids. I’m committed to helping other parents and adults who are going through what I’ve faced in my family.
After working with me, my clients say they can manage their lives with more commitment and focus. They tell me they have less stress, more confidence, and are more empowered to create the life they want.
I graduated from Coach Approach Training, and the Laser-Focused Coaching Program, both accredited by ICF. In addition to being a member of the ICF since 2014, I achieved the ICF Coach Credential of Associate Certified Coach (ACC) in 2017. I earned the Certified Productivity Coach credential from the Institute for Applied Coaching earlier the same year.
I want you to feel comfortable with your decision to work with me. I don’t want you to have to wonder if the systems, tools, and resources I’ll share really work. Here’s my No-risk 3-point Guarantee:
1. I offer a complimentary mini-coaching session so you can sample how I work.
2. You get my “Pull the Ripcord Promise” on my programs. Depending on the program, after the first session (or hour), you can “pull the ripcord” and parachute out of our work together with no further obligation. A small administrative fee may apply in some cases.
3. I will not accept you as a client unless I am convinced that I can help you and that my service is right for you.
