15 years of hands- on organizing and coaching with parents and students, organizing papers, binders, lockers, planning, time management, homework management, study skills organization, organization of written work. Three years of coaching women who live with ADHD and other brain-based conditions. We work on their organizing decisions, loss of motivation, detachment from their values and what's most important to them, holding in mind any life-shifting events that may be influencing their situation. We also work together to understand their unique brain wiring and strengths, so we can design systems that work best for their individual learning styles. I work one-to-one with clients, by phone, skype or in person, and also alongside hands-on organizers who have a client who's having a difficult time moving forward through the organizing process.
