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.

I live near Seattle where I swim in the sea year-round, reveling in the beauty that surrounds me. When I am not training for triathlons, learning french, or volunteering as a citizen scientist, I crochet amigurumi plants and animals.

I decided to become a coach because there is a shortage of good, well-trained, ADHD coaches. I have 105 hours of ADHD specific Life Coach training from the ADD Coach Academy and I have received their AACC designation. I am working towards getting my PAAC (Professional Association of ADHD Coaches) 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.
