ADHD and Executive Function Skills Coach
Supporting clients in the College Station, Texas area and Nationwide
I don’t know how I got so lucky to do what I love every day, but unquestionably, I am aligned with my purpose. The enthusiasm I feel for coaching constantly flows over the edge of my cup!
Living in College Station, Texas and having both Texas A&M University and Blinn Community College as neighbors is a great privilege since I really get a kick from working with the energy of this group. The opportunity of being present at a pivotal point in their lives as they are unhooking from their family moorings to launch their own lives and careers is exhilarating. Coaching can provide that needed temporary mooring as they are navigating the college scene while managing their ADHD symptoms and finding how they fit in this new world.
But the real heart of my coaching career started by working with Parents of Children with ADHD. My truest desire was to meet the parents where they were and help them get to where they really wanted to be. I understood this because as a parent of a child with ADHD, you never forget that horrible helpless feeling when you didn’t know what you should know about this disorder. And parents are the first line of defense and need encouragement and reinforcements to keep their kids from not being run through a gauntlet.
Inevitably, because ADHD is so highly inheritable I found myself coaching with many of those parents of ADHD children. That is because their eyes were opened to answers regarding their own life struggles. Many did not even get their own diagnosis until their children were, so they had to take on a new paradigm of their life at a much later age. And to help their children with their ADHD challenges required them to address their own challenges as well. Coaching accomplished that for them!
My coaching with parents and adults address issues at work as well as home around such things as life balance with their non-ADHD spouse, organizational issues, communication, managing their time, living a life in alignment with their values, and emotional regulation just to name a few. And there is a special calling that tugs my heart to work with women with ADHD. Because they feel without value as wives and mothers when they can’t manage their households and take care of those they love. And worthless is just not their truth!
Prior to working as a coach, I worked for the 12th Man Foundation at Texas A&M University and also worked in a corporate environment for a long stint. I am married and together we have raised three children. In my spare time, I’m an avid reader, unceasingly curious about whatever and relish all things technology. Scrapbooking and genealogy also tickle my fancy when I can get off the internet of things!
