ADHD Life Coaching

I can provide this service to individuals both inside and outside the state of Georgia.

What is ADHD Life Coaching? 

An ADHD Life Coach is someone who helps people decrease their struggles with their specific ADHD symptoms, and nurture positive change. We do this by partnering with the individual client (or group) in 50-minute sessions to examine the areas of their life they deem problematic and want to change. The coach helps the client foster awareness of what aspects of their life are helping or hindering them from achieving success. This relationship helps the client bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. Each session we discuss the clients’ goals, break down the weekly chaos, and brainstorm creative solutions and strategies to help the client become the person they want to be. Coaching works best if we are able to meet weekly to start off, then after a certain period of time depending on your needs, taper off to biweekly and monthly sessions as needed. I know meeting weekly ins’t always realistic, so we can discuss your coaching needs and frequency in our free 15-minute consultation call.

What ADHD Life Coaching is NOT:

ADHD Life Coaches are not therapists, counselors, tutors, mentors, teachers, consultants, or advisors. They cannot diagnose ADHD. They do not tutor students with ADHD in whatever subject in which they may be struggling. They don’t dig deep into past traumas. They do not tell clients what to do and solve their problems for them. They do not prescribe medication. They don’t give the client a lesson plan, or give homework on how to live their lives. 

How Does ADHD Life Coaching work?

We would meet virtually for 50-minute sessions virtually. Virtual sessions can be over the phone or utilizing Zoom. Ideally, to start off we would meet weekly. Big, long lasting changes take time to foster in a way that will allow them to stick. Meeting weekly will help create habit consistency while giving you time to implement the different homework tasks we come up with in each session to help you reach your goals. I know that meeting weekly isn’t realistic for a lot of people, so if you do need to start off meeting biweekly, it will require more self compassion and self discipline to implement what we discuss in our sessions.

What does a typical session look like?

It’s rather difficult to answer this question, though it is almost always asked. Everyone experiences different ADHD symptoms in different ways with different severity levels. What is a top priority for one person to work on may cause no problems for another. One system may work for one person, but cause utter distress to another. There is no one path to living your best life, because “best” is in the eye of the beholder.

What I can say is that the first one or two sessions will be us getting to know each other, and me asking a lot of questions about you, your life, how ADHD is impacting your life, and about your goals for treatment. I say one or two sessions because this is not a cookie-cutter process, and some people may need more time to share what’s going on.

After this initial phase, we will set priorities on your goals and what you would like to work on first. I’ll ask questions about this area in more specific detail, and together we will brainstorm solutions, or systems to try, that could help. I’m never going to tell you exactly what to do. If there is a resource that I’m aware of that I feel may help you, I will tell you about it, and you can choose to either use it or not.

To start each session I will provide time to check in on how the homework went since our last session, and give you time to choose what you would like to focus on for the session. You’re in the drivers seat for this wellness journey, and I’m sitting next to you to help navigate. Ultimately the decisions on where to go are up to you.

What does it cost?

Each 50-minute session costs $130. I do offer an income based sliding scale as well.
