FAQ’s

What is Coaching?

According to Wikipedia: Coaching is a form of development in which a person called a coach supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal. The learner is sometimes called a coachee. Occasionally, coaching may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on specific tasks or objectives, as opposed to general goals or overall development.

What kinds of Coaching do you do?

I offer Career Coaching, Productivity Consulting and ADHD Coaching.

What is ADHD Coaching?

According to The Institute for the Advancement of AD/HD Coaching,   “AD/HD coaching is a designed partnership that combines coaching skills with knowledge of Attention Deficit Disorder, a neurobiological condition. The coaching process enhances quality of life, improves performance and supports growth and change. The purpose of AD/HD coaching is to provide support, structure and accountability. Coach and client collaboratively explore strengths, talents, tools and new learning to increase self-awareness and personal empowerment. Together they design strategies and actions and monitor progress by creating accountability in line with goals and aspirations.”

Do You Coach ADHD Children, Teens, or College Students?

I specialize in coaching adults only. The age range that I have the most experience in working with are adults between the ages of 25 and 70. *The ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO) has a wonderful referral list of coaches who work with younger people.

What is the difference between Coaching and Therapy?

Therapy deals with psychological and mental health issues and should be dealt with by a licensed professional. The primary focus of therapy is healing and confronting past issues. Coaching focuses on actions and setting future goals.  A coach’s  job is to facilitate growth and change through inquiry and self-exploration. Coaching cannot take the place of therapy and counseling.  Those suffering from severe mental health difficulties should seek the assistance of a trained therapist instead of a coach.

How would you summarize your Coaching Methodology?

My coaching model blends the fields of Coaching and Consulting. My coaching methodology is similar to that of a sports coach. Imagine me on the field with you running practice drills; assessing your strengths and how you work best; sometimes sharing my expertise; collaborating with you to find the best strategies and shouting encouragement in your ear. I focus on helping people think things through, improve performance, make positive changes and get things done!

What are the logistics of your Coaching / Consulting?

Coaching / Consulting sessions with me typically take place via telephone or webcam unless arrangements have been made to meet in the office space I rent in Germantown, MD. Once we decide to work together, after your complimentary consultation, we will schedule our 60 minute intake session. Subsequently, we will set up a schedule based on your individual needs.

What does a typical Coaching / Consulting session look like with you?

Our sessions will always begin with a recap of what went well since we last spoke. The bulk of the session is spent discussing insights, and strategies and resources for moving forward towards your goals. We end each session by talking about next steps or homework that will be done for our next meeting.

Is Coaching covered by insurance?

No, unfortunately coaching services are not covered by insurance. I will discuss your investment in coaching durning your free initial consultation. Together we will try to find a coaching package that fits your needs
