How I Coach Students in High School and College

I work with high school and college students who are struggling in school (or in life) because of the symptoms of collegeGirlsattention deficit disorder. I coach people in my Seattle office or over the phone. I find that in-person coaching works best for high school students and have coached teens enrolled in most Seattle high schools. My college student clients have been all over the country or in Seattle at the community colleges, Seattle University, and the University of Washington.

My coaching has two purposes. The first is to teach students about attention issues and executive functioning so they can understand themselves better. And the second is to help them learn strategies, skills, and new habits so they are able to reach their goals and experience success.

I help students:

  • Understand ADD/ADHD and how it impacts them
  • Let go of self-blame
  • Plan and set daily, weekly, and longer term goals
  • Learn to advocate for themselves
  • Develop planning and time management skills
  • Learn effective study methods
  • Prioritize, begin, and complete assignments
  • Understand and lessen procrastination
  • Reach for doing their best and getting things done – not being perfect
  • Develop strategies to maintain attention/focus
  • Create the best study environment
  • If applicable, develop systems to manage medications
  • Become aware of self-defeating behaviors
  • Learn stress reduction techniques
  • Acknowledge their successes
