Adults and Young Adults
College is a LOT to manage! Multiple classes with huge amounts of reading and writing, tests and quizzes, due dates and deadlines, platforms (Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle…) that can be difficult to navigate, activities, relationships, personal responsibilities, and the list goes on and on. Working memory (the ability to hold on to information) and writing challenges can compound these issues. Students with less developed executive functions due to ADHD, learning disabilities, stress, or mental health issues often need support managing all of these tasks at once. I work 1:1 with college students, customizing and practicing real-time academic and organizational strategies that address particular areas of weakness and help students fulfill their potential and meet their goals.
High School Students
Adolescence can be an overwhelming period of development for high schoolers. I support students who need help managing their workload, staying caught up and managing their time so their grades reflect their ability. In addition, I work with high school students who need help successfully navigating the college Common App, and work on essay writing for college applications and scholarships. All high school students are trying to manage multiple responsibilities, not just ones with executive function challenges!
Many adults have not been diagnosed with ADHD, but have symptoms that interfere with daily functioning. Poor time management, trouble paying attention, multitasking or completing tasks, disorganization and impulsivity are some of the common symptoms of ADHD in adults. These issues can be related to ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or caused by genetics, excessive stress, mental health problems, brain injury or dementia. I work with adults of all ages, helping them to identify areas of challenge, and creating and implementing action plans to move them toward success and happier lives.
