Paths of Coaching


Educational Coaching is working in alliance together for the benefit of the child. A full psycho-educational diagnostic evaluation is conducted to identify and diagnose Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity, Aspergers, Nonverbal Learning Disability, Autism, and other learning disabilities. We provide support and help the child and family adjust to their specific learning style.

    Asperger's, Nonverbal Learning Disability, and Autism are all different, yet many doctors and psychologist do not know the difference and can misdiagnose a child. Although these are all similar it is important to know the difference with your child so you can make sure they are provided with the most appropriate education for their learning style.
    Did you know that 1 in 5 is a person with Dyslexia? Dyslexia means, difficulty with language. A child with Dyslexia will have problems reading, spelling, and writing. Dyslexia is NOT a medical disorder it is a language processing disorder and can be tested for and remediated with the proper diagnosis and education.
  • ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER (with or without Hyperactivity)
    Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity is also common. Many children who have learning disabilities are also AD/HD but some have AD/HD alone. Often this is difficult to diagnosis since AD/HD varies in degree and symptoms. Although pediatricians can diagnosis this, they often only rely on the parent and teacher reports alone.
    Dysgraphia means difficulty with handwriting. Many children with Dyslexia and/or AD/HD often have Dysgraphia. Dysgraphia impairs the child's ability to express ideas with written language. There are different types and degrees of Dysgraphia and it is often overlooked as a difficulty for a child, yet can cause educational and emotional distress.

How does Educational Coaching work?

First, make phone contact and we will discuss your concerns. Second, a meeting will be scheduled to review these concerns and obtain all information about the child. Third, testing times will be scheduled and the child will be tested. Fourth, the tests will be scored and a full evaluation will be written. Once this report is written, a final meeting will be scheduled to discuss the results. Parents will then be coached on which paths are now available to them. Parents will also be coached on how to talk to the school and their child about the results of the testing. If your child already has a diagnosis and is not needing a full-comprehensive evaluation then appointments can be scheduled to have educational coaching sessions to help guide you on your child's educational needs.


Life Coaching is an alliance between the client and coach ~ a creative partnership. Life Coaching is action and movement oriented. It focuses on helping clients identify and reach their goals. The strategies, tools, and techniques that are used are unique to the client and assist the client to be successful in all areas of life. During the process of Life Coaching you will:

  • Discover your life's purpose

How does Life Coaching work?

Life Coaching is not working on past trauma or psychological issues such as, depression and anxiety. These areas are worked on in Counseling sessions but Life Coaching and Counseling often go hand-in-hand. Clients may need both Life Coaching and Counseling and these two areas will be integrated based on your individual needs. Life Coaching sessions last from 50-90 minutes (depending on the client's needs) and can be done face-to-face in my office, a mutually agreed upon location, or via Skype (this is especially helpful if you do not live near me and I welcome clients from around the world). If interested in Life Coaching call and set up an appointment.
