Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching? 

 

Coaching can help you build confidence, and stay accountable in identifying and achieving your long term goals. Even if you already have a therapist, coaching provides a different element of support.

 

Just as your house needs various professionals to stay well-maintained (electrician, plumber, cleaning service, etc) your life needs various professionals to do the same (dentist, therapist, coach, etc).

 

I work with my clients to help them grow and to create lasting changes in their lives. Customization is key to my work as I want to meet my clients exactly where they are and then help them achieve their next breakthrough.

 

What is business consulting? 

 

I help businesses accelerate growth and increase productivity by learning how to be more inclusive and bring out the best in their employees who struggle with mental health, neurodiversity, or other "non-visible" disabilities.

 

I provide actionable, customized plans and worksheets to create more positive workplace cultures and climates, and increase employee satisfaction and retention.

 

What is neurodiversity? 

 

Neurodiversity refers to neurological differences in our brains. Neurodiversity can include Autism, dyslexia, ADHD, etc. These are natural variations in our brains, and what we refer to as neurodiversity. Those without these differences are called neurotypical. 

 

Is someone with a mental health diagnosis automatically neurodivergent? 

 

Sometimes. There is often overlap, and some mental health symptoms can look like neurodivergent symptoms. 

 

What is executive functioning? 

 

Executive function is our brain’s ability to plan, organize, control impulses, initiate tasks, manage our time, pay attention, remain flexible, and persevere.Executive functioning skills cover a very wide range of skills that a person needs to be successful. The majority of the soft skills that employers are looking for are managed by executive functioning.

 

What is “adulting”? 

Essentially, "adulting" is using a set of cognitive functions that help us self regulate so we can effectively plan, prioritize, and sustain effort towards our long term goals. 

 

"Adulting" requires: 

  • Impulse Control

  • Working Memory

  • Shifting between tasks

  • Delayed gratification

 

My employees don’t self identify. What can I do?

 

Prioritize prevention. 1 in 7 adults are neurodivergent, and 1 in 5 struggle with mental health. I help businesses understand how to be more inclusive for their neurodivergent employees and how to create more positive workplace cultures and climates, and increase employee satisfaction and retention. 

 

I provide a layer of depth that most DEI teams are missing and can work in partnership with your current DEI team to help view your organization through a different lens.

What is a "non-visible" disability?

 

A "non-visible" disability is a disability you can’t see, and includes individuals who are neurodivergent or have mental, emotional, or behavioral disabilities.

Do you host free webinars? How can I find out about them?

 

I occasionally host free webinars and will soon launch a podcast discussing a variety of topics related to executive functioning coaching, DEI in the workplace, and family advocacy.
