Reconciling the Gap Between
Ability & Performance
with a special focus on
Executive Function / ADHD
Bridge a gap between your abilities and output.
Identify specific workflow & tasks that may be holding keys to improve the overall process efficiency and effectiveness.
Explore ways to remain engaged and productive from your home office. Figure out what you need to do things differently.
for College Students
Horn your self-management skills and develop ways to build confidence when facing challenges.
Explore your hidden strengths and use them to your advantage to overcome hurdles.
Identify the best way to learn, engaged, and be motivated with classwork. Reassure goals and responsibilities and adjust accordingly.
for Families Impacted by ADHD
Identify the reasons behind their actions, habits, and challenges.
Develop strategies to address their behaviors while cultivating self-confidence and independence.
Equip parents with knowledge and techniques to become everyday coaches at home.
Note: Family coaching requires a parent's commitment to the coaching process. Therefore, all the coaching sessions require the participation of a parent as well as a child. I also recommend the child needs to be at least 16 years old to gain the benefit of coaching.
Executive Function & ADHD
Executive function (EF) is a set of self-management skills that include:
Planning and Organization
These functions are interrelated and operate in coordination with each other. Our brain coordinates this command center and utilizes these skills throughout the day.
ADHD is a neurological condition involving a developmental impairment of the self-management system that relies on EF. Most people with ADHD struggle with multiple executive function skills making everyday activities more challenging.
Although ADHD is almost always defined by weakness in executive function skills, many people do not have ADHD yet need support with their EF skills.
Have You Ever Wondered....
There are certain tasks you just don’t like doing?
You have trouble taking a large project and breaking it down into achievable pieces?
You have trouble organizing your tasks and prioritizing your busy week?
You have trouble completing the things on your to-do list?
You are always late for appointments/meetings?
You tend to procrastinate and have a hard time initiating the task?
You want to make things perfect but at the same time, you think about "what if I don't"?
You cannot use a calendar to help you remember and plan for long-term activities, tasks, and goals?
When you have ADHD or underdeveloped executive function, getting things done can be a struggle. Through coaching, we can identify how you think, learn, and process differently, and develop strategies that are tailored to your unique conditions and personalities.

What People Say...
"I was diagnosed with ADHD later in life, so I have learned to hide my executive function challenges even from myself and experienced a lot of shame about them through my life. Someone in my grad school program recommended getting an ADHD coach and recommended Aki to me. Investing in myself by working with Aki and fully committing to the process has been life changing. Her expertise in executive dysfunctions, her fabulous energy, support, and shared enthusiasm for my goals and the milestones on the way are just a few of the ingredients that have led to a new level of understanding and self-acceptance, confidence in my ability to overcome the challenges I face, and reduced anxiety about being able to reach my goals. I enthusiastically recommend committing to a 3-month program with Aki to move closer to your dreams at any stage in life."
