coaching for teens and adults

Our lives are so busy and it can feel pretty overwhelming trying to juggle all the balls!

 

As neurodivergent individuals, these demands (and the conditions they are expected under) often do not line up with what WE need, so it may sometimes feel like what is easy for others is so much more challenging for us! Depending on your living/work/school situation the "balls" we're expected to juggle might look different, but the effect is often the same...we feel like we're juggling all or most of them poorly and/or end up dropping some completely. This can have some very negative side effects, from having a low opinion of oneself to social isolation to loss of job/income, just to name a few. In our coaching sessions, we will: - Explore specific challenges and identify what most needs to change. - Do an in-depth discovery of the innate values and strengths you already have. - Identify some available outside supports that work for you. - Use all of the above to overcome challenges and reach goals that are important to you! Through our own experiences as neurodivergent adults, raising neurodivergent children, and working at our private practices to help other neurodivergent kids and adults we understand this world deeply. We offer empathetic and knowledgeable support to all clients that choose to include us in their journey.
