An ADD/ADHD coach is a professional life coach who has special training and expertise in the challenges of attention deficit disorder. Briefly, ADD coaching is a partnership that can help you better manage your life, reduce stress, and reach your goals while taking into account your unique brain wiring and the struggles it may present.
Each coach operates a little differently, depending on their personality, their coaching style, and the kinds of clients they specialize in – college students, teenagers, children, adults, executives, parents, and so on.
I specialize in coaching women, college-age and older. After seventeen years of coaching, I have developed a special expertise in helping women through the challenges they face. The symptoms of ADD/ADHD affect women differently, and too often cause stress, anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, and unhealthy thoughts and behavior patterns. My purpose as a coach is to help my clients lead more focused, healthy, and directed lives so they can reach their goals and feel better about themselves.

If you are having difficulty managing life with ADD/ADHD, coaching can help by:
- Providing a safe, non-judgmental space where you can express your frustrations and dreams.
- Helping you define your goals and co-create a plan to reach them.
- Introducing you to strategies and systems to help you manage your time, get organized, start and finish tasks, and stay focused.
- Pointing out your strengths and gifts, even when you don’t see them.
- Showing you how to develop self-compassion, acceptance, and self-forgiveness as ways to manage self-blame and critical self-talk.
- Helping and encouraging you to find ways to take care of yourself, even when everyone is depending on you and you have a million things to do!
- Offering check-ins for support and to keep you on track.
- Celebrating your strengths, gifts, and successes!
