I was diagnosed with ADHD as a young child of the age of 6 back when mental health was not as talked about and accepted. I was ashamed for many years for anyone to know I was living with ADHD other than my family. Grade school, elementary, and high school were not much of a struggle for me. I was surely confident that I did not have ADHD anymore when I started college. But little did I know at that time, that ADHD is something you will always live with.
In college I struggled to effectively manage my time while playing Division I basketball, completing homework, studies, and maintaining a healthy social life. I struggled with completing tasks on time, focus, executive functioning, and prioritization. I started losing confidence in myself for the first time in my life and struggled to really understand what was going on and why it was so hard for me to accomplish what I thought everyone else around me was doing with ease. This lowered my self- esteem, self- efficacy, motivation, and confidence. Luckily I had a very good support system that helped to remind me and keep me on my path which allowed me to keep my head up.
After increasing my knowledge of my symptoms of ADHD, I was able to gain my confidence back and work on my skills which ultimately increased my growth and performance in all areas of my life which lead me in the direction to become a clinical mental health, marriage and family therapist. During this time I provided support to youth, teens, adults/parents, and couples/families who are living and struggling with their ADHD symptoms, or know someone living with ADHD. This is why I started focusing on Coaching. So that I could provide more support to individuals and families all around the world. This is my calling and passion. I utilize an eclectic approach which consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered approaches alongside Family Systems, Structural Family Therapy, and Gottman Sound House in my coaching style.
My approach to coaching is to provide a nonjudgmental environment for you to explore yourself and work towards the goals we set while increasing your overall wellbeing. Together we will work to get you feeling better about living with your ADHD while receiving the support you deserve to create a fulfilled and improved life that you are satisfied and happy with. I will help you become the best version of yourself with your ADHD.
