I'm so glad you're here...
My name is Kelly and I’m a Certified ADHD Teen Life Coach and teens are my jam! I partner with high schoolers who need someone in their corner helping them establish skills and staying above ground with grades and assignments, and parents who want someone their teen will listen to.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting my website! I have the honor of being mom to two awesomely unique (and opposite) boys and a wife of 20+ years to Tim. It’s been a privilege beyond words to walk alongside our high schoolers as they become young adults!
After our youngest son (the handsome dude on the right) was diagnosed with combined ADHD), many moons ago, I made it my life’s mission to help and support him in every single way I knew how…even if that meant changing my parenting approach (which I did – Yikes!)…and my language (ouch – check that one off too!). I read and researched so much about ADHD, it literally became a full time job.
After reading a tweet about an ADHD Life Coach on Twitter, I realized this was exactly what I needed to do: help other teens manage the challenges of ADHD like I was doing for my son. I trained to be an ADHD Life Coach at the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTcenter), and the rest, they say, is history! I am in my “wheelhouse”, as helping high schoolers and partnering with families during these trying and crucial years is my calling. I feel the Lord has worked through my son and blessed me with this passion in life and I am super honored to work with each of my amazing clients!
One of the best things the ADHD Life Coach training did for me was help me uncover my core values.
How I live my life, what drives me and what is important to me. What that means to you is I am deeply COMMITTED to your teen, respectful, trustworthy ( I am a super safe place for you and your teen and have been known to cry with you) , and grateful: I will never take your business for granted!
WHAT IS ADHD LIFE COACHING?
As your ADHD Life coach, I will partner with your son/daughter and help them uncover their best practice (and version of themselves) for time management, procrastination, organization, motivation, (such a tough one!) study environment, grades and self care.
Mental Wellness is super important to me and I will help your high schooler with coping skills for anxiety, overwhelm and support their journey to independence and ensuring they are taking care of themselves along the way.
The Teen Rockstar Program was exactly what I was looking for. I needed an expert who could help my teen develop their executive function skills in order to have a successful school year.
My teen looked forward to weekly check-ins and consistently expressed that this helped increase his confidence and ability to handle his workload.
Kelly’s Teen Rockstar program instills in teens that they can overcome their challenges – period. This belief is key to their success.
Since working with Kelly, I have seen our need to micro-manage homework completion evaporate. I believe accountability to a respected adult who isn’t a parent is key.
Let’s Work Together!
My academic year-long coaching program covers all your high schooler needs to advocate, understand and manage ADHD. I am an accountability partner with not only your teen but you as well! My goal is for your stress as a parent to decrease and your teen’s confidence in their academic and home life to increase.
