Why do you like working with high achievers who have ADHD?
High achievers who have ADHD have so much potential, yet they don't always know how much they are capable of. They often struggle through life without the right support, relying on trial and error to get them through.
I’ve been in my clients’ shoes... I know what it's like to struggle with ADHD and just how transformational coaching can be. When a high achiever with ADHD connects with the right coach, their potential is unlimited. I take pride in being the one person who might believe in them even if they struggle to believe in themselves.
Michael's Coaching Style
My goal as an ADHD coach is to partner with my clients and help them discover who they are and what they are capable of becoming outside of their ADHD diagnosis. I want clients to enter our coaching relationship with a curious nature and an openness to change. Together we will find tools and tactics that fit your unique needs. My job is not hand you a one-size-fits-all solution, but to work with you to design the strategies that work best for your life.

Gain a deeper understanding of their ADHD and how it impacts their functioning
Build and strengthen their skills to effectively manage their ADHD
