Imagine having the right tools at the right time to focus on what is essential for you.
Imagine knowing how to activate your motivation to get things done, and to feel the satisfaction of checking off those daily tasks from the proverbial to do list.
Consider a partnership with Winnipeg’s ONLY Certified ADHD Coach.
Perhaps you are buried in paperwork, held hostage by disorganization or procrastination. Your time management skills are so behind that you don’t even know the day of the week. You are in facing life changes such as; returning to work, advancing professionally and learning new skills. This is a challenge for anyone, but if you or someone you love is on the attentional deficit spectrum, it can feel insurmountable.
A coach is a trained professional in your corner who gets it – an accountability partner to help you come up with a plan, stay on track, live life more fully and challenge you to take calculated risks. We partner with you through a series of self-discovery, learning and career assessments designed to unearth your signature strengths and your future direction.
The intention is for you to walk away with renewed purpose and pragmatic methods developed and tested during our work together.
“Michelle has helped me become more self-aware and to manage my learning disabilities and ADHD. She helped me step back to understand how to address what I always thought were personal defects, rather a difference in neurophysiology.”

We start with a blend of comprehensive metrics to discern your learning preference and how you typically attend to and process information. We design a blueprint of
your skills, strengths, talents and interests. As a result, we adapt methods that clarify what you need to get started on difficult tasks, sustain momentum, while creating
more mental space to acquire new information.
Next, we build strategies for you to apply to real-life situations right now. For example, a new approach to studying that builds not only study skills, but time management, so you avoid the familiar cycle of procrastination that leads to cramming. Because you try it right away, you see immediate feedback on your progress. We stop and ask …
Is this working? What can I do next time? In contrast to your old approach, you’ll be working with, not against, your brain’s wiring.
Finally, through the coaching process, we build upon principles of mindfulness, resilience and self-compassion. Through paying attention to your thoughts and learning
to name emotions as they occur, you gain clarity of what is important to you. These principles build the recognition that in life we are consistently presented with choices, allowing you to gain the ability to work through difficult situations and bounce back with new knowledge in tow. These skills improve not only school work, but relationships, health, career and quality of life.
