       ADHD and Executive Functioning Coach

Attention Deficit Disorder is characterized by behaviors and thought patterns that can be counterintuitive to leading a productive life and sustaining positive relationships. Children and their families often feel frustrated, angry, and anxious due to the difficulty children with this diagnosis have organizing their time and materials, transitioning out of strong emotional states, and attaining life's goals. Your child and I will work together to identify behaviors, thoughts, and feelings that are not working for them or their families. Together we will identify how they would like their lives to be and set goals that reflect these desired outcomes. We will design effective strategies that break these goals down into manageable steps so that your child can make meaningful progress and in doing so, feel empowered, confident, and capable. Coaching is a practical and structured process that touches most life areas including: 

  • Strategic planning & scheduling

  • Prioritization of goals

  • Time, task & space management

  • Motivation & follow-through

  • Developing systems for success

  • Self Regualton of intense emotions

  • Healthy communications & relationships

  • An appreciation of personal unique learning style

  • Achieving a balanced, healthy lifestyle

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Life Coach

 Cognitive behavioral therapy is a strengths--based approach that, rather than focusing on what is wrong with the child, focuses on what is right with them. As a certified CBT and Mindfulness Coach, I draw on my years of experience as a parent, teacher, counselor, ADHD Educator and Coach, along with my training in CBT to develop an action plan designed to fit your child's unique needs. The plan we develop will focus on building upon your child's unique visions of success in order to make meaningful progress in the areas of life that are most problematic right now. These goals will build optimism, hope, and resilience into your child's repertoire of behaviors and thoughts. We will find strategies to break these goals down into meaningful steps so that your child is able to make meaningful progress, and in doing so feel empowered, confident, and capable.

ADHD Workshops for Parents and Educators

The behavioral symptoms of ADHD are behaviors which our society unfortunately associates with poor parenting and teacher skills. Parents and classroom teachers understand that nothing could be further from the truth. My workshops are designed to take the mystery and the guilt away from raising and teaching ADHD kids. Participants gain an in-depth understanding of the science behind this diagnosis, the ability to see the world from these children's perspectives, and leave equipped with research-based, practical strategies designed to give parents, teachers, and children the tools they need to achieve their goals.

Presentation content, cost, and duration vary according to the needs of the participants.

'Sarah has quite literally been a miracle worker for my very anxious, perfectionist child. She helped her by utilizing different strategies to help her succeed not only scholastically but also by giving us strategies regarding perspective of where her anxiety might have stemmed from. She emails us after the sessions with some of these strategies that I can use at home with her such as yoga or breathing exercises. I am so thankful for her insight and caring demeanor. She truly is one of a kind. Highly recommend.'

J. Hard

'I have had the privilege to work with Sarah and I can honestly say that I have seen her make such huge differences in children’s life’s. I seen her spend countless hours of her own time making lessons plans that are to an individual student to make sure she is meeting those student’s needs. As a person who has struggled with dyslexia my whole life it makes me wish there were more Sarah’s in this world. I can promise you Sarah will give you 110% effort to help your child meet the goals they want and at the same time building up their self-esteem. As I have personal seen her do this time and time again.'

C. Shipp

'As a parent of three students with markedly different interests and abilities, I marvel at Sarah’s ability to relate to each student as an individual and customize an educational plan specially suited to that learner. I have watched students blossom under her leadership and seen their growth both inside and outside of the classroom. Each of my children will point to Mrs. Abercrombie as the inspiration to take on new challenges and never stop learning. One will tell you that she fostered a love of reading. Another will point to a love for History and its relation to current events. The third credits Sarah with giving him “the courage to speak up and ask questions until I really understand.'

R. Kanan
