Because It Can Be Easier…
Reaching your goals when you have ADHD may seem daunting at times. You want to expend less time and effort trying to accomplish your personal and professional tasks. You want to reach your potential, and you want to have more balance and peace in your life. If this is what you want, and have unable to do it on your own, it may be time to get help.
You’ve Tried to Improve Your Situation
I bet you’ve spent a fair amount of time scouring the internet for answers on how to manage your ADHD. Maybe you’ve bought a few books, and read parts of them. Along the way you asked yourself which of these sources is reputable and what information is really accurate? It is confusing at times. You’ve even tried some of the suggested strategies that you found in books or on the internet, but not long enough to see if they could work.
So, by now your head may be spinning with all of the information and options. There are still more task lists sitting on your desk than you care to think about. While you tried your best, you have gone as far as you can go on your own…
Individual ADHD Coaching
Information is a great start. It is definitely helpful to learn more about ADD and how to address the challenges that you are facing.
But, if you are not progressing as effectively as you would like, you likely are missing an important element. That is, you may not yet know how to put all the pieces together in a way that works for you.
I can help you do this by offering you the support, structure, and accountability you need. Check out what former clients say about the benefits they received through our coaching work together.

When you are supported in this way, you will create a life that works for you. If you would like to learn more:
Marla’s help was astonishing. After only a few calls she seemed to have me figured out pretty well.
She called me on empty promises, pushed me just enough never too much, and together we came up with tools that actually work and which I actually use. She has an uncanny ability to know how far she can push me without ticking me off. Thanks to that I never felt pressure to lie about or excuse what I had done or how I was doing.
After living with ADD for many years I started believing that I was lazy, stupid, and crazy. Marla was able to convince me that I was none of these by helping me solve small issues and get a track record of success. Once those things were accomplished, many of the pieces sort of fell into place.

Have questions and want to learn more about how coaching can help you?
Marla was consistently supportive, positive and uncritical. I learned to honor the way I work best, and am more accepting of my ADD and other characteristics. Now I ask myself, how can I get what I need to get done without running against my own personality? After learning more about ADD from Marla, I don’t think of my challenges as a personal weakness. This change in my thinking allows me to better handle my challenges by thinking of strategies to manage them, rather than engaging in self blame!
Being able to make choices that are right for me and learn strategies that last a life time is invaluable to me. The investment was certainly worth it.
From working with Marla, I learned a lot about goal setting, meeting objectives, and doing that as a person with ADD. If you are stuck or frustrated, I would certainly hire Marla as a coach.

I can provide the support, guidance and accountability you need to figure out and implement the best practices that will help you focus and reach your goals.
Step 1 – Identifying Your Goals and Values
Our ultimate goal together is to figure out your best practices, the ones that are uniquely suited to help you to take efficient and effective action.
But not just any action. We want to make sure that you are taking those actions that are in alignment with your goals and values.
So, our first step is to clearly identify your most important values and goals so we are sure the actions you are taking are the right ones.
This information will serve as our guidepost as we work together to enable you to operate most effectively in your personal and professional life.
Step 2 – Making It Specific and Measurable
You may come to coaching with a general goal, like becoming more productive and organized at work.
The best way to get to your general goals is to create concrete steps so that we have a clear vision of where we are going and we will know when we have gotten there.
To do this we will make your goals specific and measurable by drilling down into the specifics of what reaching your goals entails.
We will then focus our energy and time in achieving the specific details of your goal(s).
Step 3 – Closing The Gap
Once we know where we are going, the next step is to understand what will help you get there.
To determine this we will identify the factors in your environment that are currently helping or hindering you in reaching your goals, including, but not limited to
- support systems
- impact of your ADHD
- current responsibilities
In doing so we will know what we need to address to make our work most effective.
Step 4 – A Solution Focused Approach
Next we will identify what is needed to help you reach your goals, such as
- learning new skills, like planning and prioritizing.
- adopting the necessary systems and tactics.
- choosing the right tools for your needs and style.
Then, through a process of experimentation and implementation, we will identify your best practices.
This will create the foundation of your customized strategy and will become the tool box you will use to achieve your current and future goals.
Step 5 – Maintenance System
When you have reached your primary goals, and are ready to complete the most intensive stage of coaching, we will create a maintenance system for you.
This system will enable you to sustain your progress in your initial goals areas, as well as apply the best practices you have developed though coaching to future goal areas.[/wptabcontent] [/wptabs]
