MY STORY. HOW MY EXPERIENCE HAS CREATED MY ROLE AS A COACH

After graduating from The Ohio State University, with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, I moved to San Diego and earned a Master's Degree in Education at Alliant University. At that time, I earned a California Teaching Credential and I devoted my professional career to creating success in academic, psychological and behavioral education with children. With over 15 years of experience, I have worn many hats. I have worked as a personal coach, counselor, consultant, director of a mentoring and social club program as well as a special needs teacher. I have taught students from preschool age through high school, including special education and alternative education.

 

Currently, I Coach and Consult adolescents, parents and professionals in Brooklyn and New York City. Since I work with all types of clients, not all of my clients have ADD/ADHD. But, all of them have goals that are important. I have developed a practice aimed at leveraging a growth mindset while progressing the barriers of self development. Together, we co-create a life standard of satisfaction that can only be created with intentional goal setting and building up the strength of accountability.

 

 

Because I was diagnosed with ADD when I was in the third grade, I have had the opportunity to establish a rare perspective of its many challenges and the unique ADD learning process. With the help of tutors, coaches and mentors, I have learned to educate and advocate for myself. Throughout my educational and professional experience, I have had the opportunity to develop a thorough understanding of the services necessary to support those effected with ADD and their families. I have found that my journey with ADD is always beginning and that I must always maintain positive momentum.  I also believe that humor can create positive learning experiences and believe in the foundations of positive psychology. We learn best when we are running towards our goals rather than away from the consequences.
