Executive functions are the cognitive processes that give us the skills we need to plan, prioritize and execute complex tasks.
Most people begin developing their executive functions around two years old. Executive function development tends to finish around age 30. However, people with ADHD and co-occurring conditions are often 30 to 40 percent behind their peers in developing executive function skills, which can pose challenges at school, in the workplace and day-to-day life.

The coaching process begins with a free initial consultation where you share your history, current challenges, and goals. Then, we collaborate to develop an action plan that suits your individual needs.
We meet with students on the same day and time every week during the semester. Over 95% of our students continue on to complete at least a second semester with us – and many choose to stay on with us for years!
Our team provides structure, accountability, targeted questioning and constructive feedback, but you ultimately drive the process forward. Through regular, weekly contact (either in person or via phone or Zoom) and regular check-ins, we work together to establish habits and life skills that will empower you to reach your goals.
Besides our regularly scheduled sessions, your coach is there for you when you need them. Whether you need to blow off steam, work through a problem or just get a pep talk, we’re only a text message or email away.
