About Me

I was diagnosed in 1995 at age 35 and have two adult daughters, (both with ADHD brains). I graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1982 (BS, Oceanography), became a navy pilot, deployed overseas, and became a flight instructor, all while having undiagnosed ADHD. Married, and having left the Navy, I got to experience life as a military spouse, dealing with the challenges of transfers, school changes, and constantly starting anew.

I live near Seattle where I swim in the sea year-round, reveling in the beauty surrounding me. My creative outlet is crocheting amigurumi. I have a goal of completing a half-Ironman race this September.

I decided to become a coach in order to help fill the gap in good, well-trained, ADHD coaches. My training consists of 105 hours of ADHD specific training at the ADD Coach Academy. I received their AACC designation after proving during a live coaching session that I coach to the same criteria that is required by the PAAC (Professional Association for ADHD Coaches) and the ICF (International Coaching Federation). I am working towards getting my PAAC credential*.

What is ADHD coaching?

ADHD coaching is life coaching viewed through an ADHD lens. I help clients identify and then leverage their natural strengths to design a structure that works for them.

What topics are addressed?

The topics can be anything from immediate, short-term goals to long-term personal growth.

What happens in a typical session?

I partner with you as you learn about how your brain works best and create structures that will help you reach your goals.

How is an ADHD coach different from a sports coach?

The ADHD coach is your partner. A sports coach is the boss.

How does coaching differ from therapy?

Coaching is based on the belief that the client is whole and capable. The therapist may see the client as needing to be healed.

Why the Octopus?

Octopuses are extremely smart. They have nine brains, one for each of their eight arms and one for the rest of their body. They often multitask and and are known for their unique and creative solutions to the challenges they face as they survive and thrive in the sea.
