I help people of all ages successfully overcome challenges of school, work, relocation and life transitions.  I help students, parents and others diagnosed with ADHD develop systems and tools that will work for them in their daily lives.  I also offer my knowledge and coaching to the larger extended family -to encourage better understanding of the unique brain wiring of our ADHD population.

  •  "From time to time ADHD Coaches seek out a colleague for coaching. Recently, I asked Liz to coach me through my difficulty with feeling buried under major distractions - making motivation really difficult.  Liz listened intently to what I said, and intuited what I really meant. She asked questions that clarified the assumptions that were blocking my progress. She is a kind, nurturing coach, yet because she cares, she asked some tough, insightful, and powerful questions that inspired me to realize my priorities and focus on what I needed to do to move forward.  I was grateful to Liz for her encouragement and her personalized coaching. I felt as if she were walking right beside me through the coaching partnership, even though I live on the East Coast (we spoke on the phone.) She inspired me, and I made progress."   Coach Liz - You are awesome! Thank you!  -Sheila Smyth, Florida               MAED/SPE, AAC ADD Strength Coaching
