I specialize in individualized support for those who struggle with ADD and anxiety. I listen for your needs and design customized services to help you move forward.
Coaching is NOT therapy. You don’t need to know how to start. My role is to guide you or your child in the process. Through reflective inquiry I help my clients gain clarity and then create steps to make life easier by incorporating new strategies. I will work with you to identify your strengths and build upon them to create actions for compassionate change.
I offer several options for coaching sessions.
- Individual sessions in your home or meeting at a public space.
- Walking coaching. have found this to create a relaxed, open atmosphere that allows for connection especially for people who are anxious about giving coaching a try.
- Individual sessions over the phone, zoom or skype.
