Do you feel like you’re hitting invisible walls in your personal and professional life despite your best efforts?
Do you have a hard time maintaining stable relationships?
Do you feel like you are more than capable of meeting the demands of your life, but your results are frustratingly inconsistent?
You’re not alone! The good news is, there are many skills, shortcuts and strategies that can be learned to successfully navigate your school, home and work environments (with or without a particular diagnosis or label). At NowWhat, we specialize in providing personalized coaching for adults who are living with ADHD and other neurodivergences, as well as their spouses and their families. Difficulties with working memory, processing speed, impulse control, and mental flexibility can become a barrier to relational, academic & vocational success – no matter how intelligent or hard-working you are. In fact, neurodivergent adults are often highly intelligent and work in high-pressure, high-stakes environments.
While these challenges are commonly associated with an ADD or ADHD diagnosis, Learning Disabilities, giftedness or other exceptionalities, you don’t need a diagnosis to benefit from learning these practical strategies.
Adult ADHD coach Rina Rodak offers straight-talking, realistic coaching that tackles each individual’s specific challenges head-on, with humour, warmth and compassion. Rina is PEERS trained and incorporates many DBT and CBT principles into her adult coaching work. From calendar mapping to ease household scheduling craziness, to problem-solving relationship challenges, to helping you navigate difficult workplace dynamics, Rina can help you take a new perspective and effect positive change in areas where you’re feeling stuck.
Rina is also a Parent Coach for parents of neurodivergent kids, and can help you tease out the subtle line between ‘can’t’ and ‘won’t’ when it comes to your child, teen, or adult child’s journey, learn how to respond skillfully instead of reacting out of frustration to create a positive and validating environment for growth in your home.
We have several Executive Function coaches working alongside Rina who specialize in this approach and we take care to match you with a coach that will work well with you and your particular passions, interests and challenges.
For post-secondary students and young adults entering the workforce, we also offer personalized coaching that involves training & ongoing support in area such as:
- Project planning & personal organization
- School/workplace advocacy & accountability
- Assistive tech selection & training
- Project and assignment ‘chunking and charting’
