Personal Philosophy for ADDvance Coaching

I believe coaching is connecting individuals to their own inner wisdom. My probing questions, deep listening and insights will spark your quest to grow. I‘ll help you connect the dots to create a clear picture for success .   You’ll learn to hone your strengths into talents and create a path that really works for you. As a mother of a young adult with ADD, I have learned how to support his success at every stage of life. As a specialist in adult learning, I have studied learning differences and developed a variety of tools and training materials for ADD coaching.
