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.

Am I the right coach for you? Here’s the quick version of why I became an ADHD coach …
Two of my kids were assessed as having ADHD-Primarily Inattentive during their middle school years. My interest in ADHD stems from teaching them how to advocate for themselves, and teaching myself how to be a patient and loving parent when the going got tough! I bought books on ADHD and learned a lot about neuro-diversity …
I launched Space Editing, a professional organizing company, when my youngest child was in high school. Many of my clients had ADHD and I needed more tools to help them, so I enrolled in an ADHD-centric coaching course. I earned a Certified Organized Coach credential from the Intstitute for Applied Coaching and an Associate Certified Coach credential from the International Coaching Federation in 2018. My business was reorganized in late 2021 to concentrate on coaching.
My training includes over 200 hours of coaching coursework, in both general coaching and ADHD-specific coaching methods and skills. I continue to take coaching courses, attend conferences on coaching and ADHD, and am myself coached by mentors to provide my clients the best services I can offer.
I especially love helping newly diagnosed adults learn about how their ADHD shows up and what their “super powers” are; what’s typical ADHD phenomena and what’s uniquely theirs; and how to design a life of joy and attainments. However, variety is the spice of life — not all of my coaching clients have ADHD wiring; I can and do coach neurotypical clients, too!
