Melissa Podell CALC, M.S.W

Supporting those affected by ADHD to build sustainable skills and strategies, leading to confidence and success.

What is ADHD Coaching?

ADHD Coaches are trained certified life coaches who have additional specific training and expertise in coaching individuals affected by ADHD. These coaches provide a higher level of accountability than the average life coach, along with a greater focus on building skills and strategies to manage ADHD symptoms. ADHD coaches create the space for students and adults to self-evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. They then build upon success and failure within an accepting and supportive framework.
