Coaching Post-Secondary Students


Do you spend hours on schoolwork with little time for anything else?

I work with post-secondary students to develop the skills in key areas to ignite motivation, defeat digital distractions, and create systems to allow you to show what you know and have fun doing it. You’ve lost the built-in structure of high school, and possibly living away from home for the first time. Are you still learning everything the hard way? It’s no surprise that students with ADHD can feel lost, frustrated, and demoralized. Think you just need to try harder? Think again – just 5% of college students with ADHD will reach graduation, in contrast to 41% of their non-ADHD peers.1

This is a huge loss of talent.

You know that you have the smarts and the desire to succeed, yet you are unsure of how to design a plan with enough structure to support each step. You’re struggling to get start, but you can see the finish line. Perplexing? Perhaps school leaves you exhausted and bored. There is so much more to learning! What if you could not only learn effectively, but actually enjoy the process again …

“When I began meeting with Michelle  I was very skeptical; I believed I was above needing help and that if I wanted to be more successful I should just work harder. A year has passed since then and I am more productive than I could have ever imagined. Michelle didn’t just give me a list of things that I should change, she got to know me and worked with me to help find strategies that were tailored to my strengths and weaknesses. This kind of highly personalized process was exactly what I needed. I strongly recommend seeing Michelle. You could reach a potential that you aren’t even considering a possibility right now.”
