Need a Coach with Something Extra?

Search the Directory of Coaches.

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.

More Information:

I understand ADHD and the impact it can have on your life and on your child or teenager. ADHD affects the whole family. I have a Certified Organizer Coach (COC) credential from the Institute of Applied Coaching (IAC) which combines my Professional Organizer and coach training together. I am also an ADHD/Executive Function coach and a former educator.

ADHD coaching offers support and guidance based on your strengths, values, and goals, enabling you to find positive-impact solutions that work for how you think.

I also work with students (ages 8 and up) whose ADHD is interfering with their learning and impacting their friendships. My goal is to help ensure students have a positive school experience through understanding their ADHD, themselves and how they learn.

The Thinking and Doing Skills Center also offers small group classes such as: Thriving with ADHD in the Family- Parent Class and Super Skills for Students designed for middle school students. See our website for current offerings.

When I am not coaching, I enjoy hiking, biking, vegetable gardening and genealogy. How about you?
