My monthly membership eliminates the guessing game of how many sessions each client should purchase before they even get started. It also provides complimentary drop-in access to my 60-minute support group/group coaching, which happens twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays at 2pm Pacific Time, available only to clients with current monthly memberships.
Monthly memberships fees vary depending on the quantity and duration of individual sessions per month, and are:
two (2) monthly 60-minute individual coaching sessions for $500/month

Single sessions are also available to purchase for $250 per 60-minute session here.
Coaching + Consulting
Executive/Leader ADHD Coaching + Consulting
As a seasoned Administrative Business Partner at Google, I've had extensive experience in advising executives, especially those new to their roles and teams. My background experience of improving team culture, strategic communication, and cultivating psychological safety allows me to provide perspective and tools to aid executives in managing their teams, by being deliberate about how they will approach their own ADHD, and/or their team members' ADHD. The combination of coaching and consulting allows executives to create their own plans of action going forward, with a full spectrum of knowledge at their disposal.
Options for Executive/Leader ADHD Coaching + Consulting are:
Single (1) 60-minute individual coaching session for $250
Package of five (5) 60-minute individual coaching sessions for $1125 (10% off)
What is ADHD Coaching?
What is coaching?
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as: "Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership."
But what does that mean in practical terms? To put it simply, a coach supports clients in working through obstacles and challenging thought patterns. Coaches ask probing questions, observe nonverbal cues, and reflect what clients say back to them, allowing clients to make their own realizations, determinations, and plans.
ADHD coaching vs. other types of coaching
There's a wide range of coaching, and they all fulfill different purposes for different people.
ADHD coaches are able to coach their clients through an ADHD lens. We know what ADHD individuals have heard their entire lives, and the scars that can come from that narrative. A neurotypical coach who tries to motivate their client by emphasizing motivation or "just do it" mentality can sometimes do more harm than good. A good ADHD coach knows that ADHD individuals usually don't run into challenges due to lack of motivation or desire to achieve, and putting more emphasis on those things can sometimes create more anxiety and resistance.
I believe ADHD coaches make better coaches for ADHD individuals, even if the topics go beyond productivity. Book a consultation if you'd like to discuss this more.
Coaching vs. therapy
In coaching training, we are told that therapy addresses complex mental health issues and trauma, and looks into the past, while coaching focuses on the present and onward.
While I wholeheartedly agree that complex mental health issues and trauma should be addressed with a therapist/counselor with many, many more years of schooling in psychology, I believe that definition was given at a time when therapy followed the medical model. These days, CBT and DBT are often the therapy of choice, and both of those models also look at the present and future.
For me, the distinction between coaching and therapy boils down to the approach. Coaching allows the client to be the effector of change. The client decides what to work on in the session, an agreement is made up front about what outcomes the client would like to get from the session, and the client is guided and supported toward achieving their own results.
Coaching vs. consulting
When I put on my coaching hat, I am creating a supportive environment for my clients to uncover knowledge and insight about themselves, as well as identify their own solutions and action to take going forward. Coaching clients have all the knowledge and insight within them to make these discoveries in the right environment. All I'm doing is providing them with an optimal and safe environment to explore.
While I believe that works wonderfully for ADHD clients, I'm also able to put on a consulting hat as requested. This is especially helpful for executives, especially those new to leadership, and for parents of children with ADHD, because it includes insight that wouldn't otherwise be considered in the decision-making process. With my career experience in advising executives and cultivating healthy work cultures, I'm able to provide tools and perspectives that my executive clients may not already have. And as a former twice exceptional child who has been able to heal the wounds of my family, I am able to provide insight into a child's ADHD experience, while keeping in mind the experience and intentions of the parent.
