Does your child have difficulty completing schoolwork or getting it done in a timely manner? Or maybe the work gets done, but doesn't get turned in?
Perhaps your kid functions pretty well, but it takes a lot of behind the scenes work by you, like keeping track of when assignments are due or making sure things get done.
Wondering how your teenager is going to function in college without you?
If I just described your child, ADHD coaching may provide the support and guidance your child needs. Lack of organization, problems planning and prioritizing, and losing and forgetting things inevitably results in academic problems. Although these executive function skills don't come naturally to kids with ADHD, they can develop and strengthen them. That's where an ADHD coach comes in.
I am an ADHD and academic coach and I can help your child develop skills related to time management, planning, goal setting, organization, and problem solving. Through the coaching process, your child will develop and strengthen executive function skills to enable him/her to be increasingly self sufficient. I work with students elementary through college age with ADHD and learning disorders.
As a licensed psychologist and an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider, I utilize empirically validated models of ADHD coaching created by mental health experts. Parents can rest easy knowing I am qualified to recognize and address conditions that often co-exist with ADHD (anxiety, depression, etc.). My background and training also allow me to provide ADHD and psychoeducational evaluations, which are often needed by my clients.
I provide both in-person and remote services (through videoconferencing on a HIPPA compliant platform). Videoconferencing allows for frequent brief sessions, which are a preferred modality when it comes to students as it prevents them from getting off track or derailed (it's easy for students to fall behind quickly which can go undetected with weekly sessions). It also allows students to have sessions beyond the greater Nashville area into Tennessee at large.
Parenting is hard. Parenting a child with ADHD is harder.
