My goal is to work collaboratively with you and your kiddo on the journey to overcoming barriers to success. ADHD, anger, and learning challenges are not necessarily an obstacle to success. I will focus on what your child can do rather than what they cannot do.
I will enter your children’s world through play and solution focused strategies, explore their interest, and understand their unique “language.” You will join us the last 5 minutes of the coaching session, share fun moments, learn their weekly action plan, and learns strategies to help your child to grow, thrive and succeed.
My education and experience includes a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education, Special Education as well as teaching special education for 10+ years. I've earned a Masters degree in Education + 30 credits of graduate degree course in Clinical Counseling, board certified as an ADHD Coach, and an Educational Therapist.
While I grew up in southwest Michigan, I currently live in a resort town in Saint Joseph with my husband (we have two adult children) and two doodles. When I’m not coaching, or racing my bike dirt roads, I love reading, and hiking in the dunes.
I'm an Educational Therapist, ADHD Coach + NLP Practitioner. Working with children has been my passion ever since I began graduate school. It touches my heart deeply when I see these children grow, thrive, and succeed.
