Adult Executive Function + ADHD Coaching
We behave according to who we believe ourselves to be. Who would you like to be? What’s holding you back? One-on-one coaching will help you discover your strengths, your values (what’s important to you), and your modalities (how you learn/work best). The next step is to use those areas of strengths to develop strategies for success where you see a need. As your coach, I’m your thinking partner, who forms a collaborative relationship with you to explore areas of your life, helping to gain clarity and meaningful growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Coach?
A coach is someone who helps you imagine a greater possibility for yourself and supports you in achieving it – focusing on strengths, values (what’s important to you) and modalities (how you learn/work best).
A coach is a thinking partner, who forms a collaborative relationship with you to explore areas of your life, helping to gain clarity and meaningful growth.
A coach offers space and time to process through challenging situations in your life, inspiring awareness and resulting in change.
A coach helps you become aware of what’s working well and what’s getting in the way.
As a client, you are in charge of your session. I’m here to be curious, and help you to dive deeper, discovering your ‘who’.
Discovering your ‘who’ and how your own brain works can be transformative. Who are you? How do you absorb things? What stories are you telling yourself? What’s possible when you change your stories? Who do you want to be?
What is different about an Executive function and ADHD Coach?
Education in the unique brain wiring and how it presents in life – What causes your brain run non-stop? What makes it hard to complete a project? A certified ADHD Coach will have extensive knowledge in what’s different from the ‘typical’ brain, the cognitive lag often seen in executive function skills, and effective strategies to help you discover how to move forward. Understanding who you are and how your own brain works helps with awareness, acceptance and growth.

What Can Coaches Do for People With ADHD?
Help pause, find balance and grow. When your brain is constantly running, full of ideas and to do lists, it is hard to pause and process. A coaching session offers you that space – time to think and become aware of your self-talk. And education about what exactly is going on inside your head and body. A certified ADHD Coach will have tools and models on hand to help you understand your brain and how it works. With knowledge comes power. And change.
ADHD Coach vs. Therapist - What’s the difference?
A coach stays in the present with movement toward the future, whereas therapy often unpacks the past. When a coach asks about the past, it is limited to successes (what’s worked before?). Therapy and coaching can work well together for some.
How do you meet with clients?
Mostly over Zoom, but sometimes over the phone. Virtual meetings allow us to meet from anywhere around the world.

Working with Sally has changed my life for the better in ways I never imaged or thought possible. I was motivated enough to reach out to her to begin coaching, but still reluctant to fully “jump in” because trying to help myself in the past didn’t work. I never understood why until I met Sally. She is invested in my well-being like no other professional I’ve worked with. She truly wants to get to know me, and she wants to help me get to know myself better. She is patient when I’m not ready to tackle what feels like a huge topic. She is compassionate when most of the session consists of me crying. She gives a gentle and kind nudge when she sees I’m on the brink of a breakthrough, and I’m scared to dive in. And, she is my biggest cheerleader when I’m excited about a revelation or win I’ve experienced. I will forever be grateful that I found Sally and had the chance to work with her.

I approached Sally for coaching primarily to address my challenges with interpersonal relationships (both professional and personal). We’ve started off with addressing my difficulty in cleaning up+managing my work email. She helped me come up with a structured strategy with set timelines to clean up my inbox in a matter of a couple of weeks. Her text check-ins also helped me out to keep myself on track. As a result, I’m more responsive while using email than ever before.
The best part about working with Sally is she never handed me the solutions outright. By asking questions, she helps me break down and dive deeper into my challenge of the day. The strategy we end up with is not only tailored to me, but also lets me play to my own strengths. Before ending our session, she asks me about the day’s takeaway, which helps to further reinforce what I need to do.
If you’re as goal-oriented as I am, Sally’s definitely the ideal coach. Her help with organization and planning are key in tackling challenges I previously deemed too vague/fuzzy to plan out.

We have been so lucky to find Sally. It is so difficult to find someone who is warm, non-judgemental and takes the time to truly listen and understand. She brings specialist ADHD knowledge and skills coaching, as well as a wealth of her own personal experience. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Finding ways to overcome the struggles that I face with ADHD is really difficult, but Sally has been a tremendous help. She provides a judgment-free space to talk through these struggles, helps me recognize the tools I already use successfully in other areas of my life to cope with these struggles, and gives me guidance on solutions I never considered. In the few months that we’ve worked together, I can tell I’ve made huge progress that I otherwise wouldn’t have. Sally really is an amazing coach!
ES — Adult Client
Sally is so naturally talented at coaching people and helping them see the best in themselves. After only one session, I felt as if I found exactly what I have been looking for to finally make progress in a life-long pursuit to feel more successful at home and at work with ADHD. I previously worked with two other career coaches and a counselor…but I always felt something was missing and that I was too different from most people for them to be able to help me. She has an exceptional grasp of the science of ADHD and how to apply it to the real world setting for both adults and children.
