Coaching may mean something different to everyone, depending on where they are today and where they want to be. Let me help a little with my view on “what coaching is” and more importantly share with you the training behind it. I define coaching as: an equal partnership; we explore with thought provoking/creative questions to reach maximum potential. I, as the coach, am the navigator with YOU as the driver. But I am working with you supporting and helping identify challenges, discover your strengths and turn challenges into victories to reach your goals. Coaching is directed at what your needs are at that time: whether its academic or the overwhelm of holding down a job or family, coaching works to explore all the possibilities to achieve YOUR goals.
I work individually with both TEENS and ADULTS, who are challenged in their own world, losing self- confidence, unable to focus and/or organize, manage time or keep track of everyday life. I offer hope and a positive coaching philosophy as a foundation. Then we individualize it, open up possibilities and develop life changes. Coaching can help empower you to reach your goals and embrace your diverse brain. I love seeing the changes in individuals as they unleash their superpowers.
I am based out of Columbus, Ohio but I can provide support locally or nationwide via SKYPE.
My education and training consists of a B.S. and M.B.A from Ashland University along with an M.S. from Illinois State University. I obtained my AAC Coaching Certification from The elite ADD Coach Academy and have also achieved Board Certification for Life/ADHD Coaching.
I am proud to be one of the first to have earned the “Master Teacher” designation in the State of Ohio, and instrumental in paving the way for children’s successes. I was honored with the award of the first Special Needs teacher in 2010-2011 to be selected by her peers as Teacher of the Year. This also provides a solid background of experience of the schools and expectations of a parent.
A contributor to both Laurie Dupar’s “Inspirational Ways to Succeed with ADHD,” AND “Wacky Ways to Succeed With ADHD,” I was honored to published a small but, fabulous compilation of inspirational stories from my teen clients.“My Little Book of Hope, Stories and Inspirations written by ADHD teens for ADHD teens.” (available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble)
I am available for speaking engagements and training for schools and organizations throughout Ohio, while continuing my private work with others. I provide personal attention and encourage you to set up a personal one on one Consult. Schedule Personal Consult Here
I have resided for 25 years in Hilliard, OH (Columbus, OH area) with my rescue cats.
