Coaching is focused on improving your present moment – usually with coping skills, strategies, mindset shifts, and modifications to your environment. That might involve reviewing things that have worked in the past and those that haven’t. However, it isn’t therapy and it doesn’t substitute for medical advice.

Neurodiverse people are statistically more likely to have co-occurring mental health and/or medical challenges. Their loved ones often have very different mental health and/or medical challenges than the general public.

Since I’m not a therapist or psychiatrist, I may suggest that you seek a mental health provider to process issues in your past that are holding you back. If it seems that some underlying medical conditions are interfering with coaching, I may suggest that you pursue diagnosis and treatment. While you pursue that, I may decide to continue, pause, or end our coaching relationship. It depends upon the situation.

I am a certified Professional Life Coach and a member of the Autism Professional Coaching Association, in addition to my Master’s degree and life experience with neurodiversity. I am constantly learning and seeking to be a better resource. Learn more about me here. You can also learn more about the core beliefs that inform my coaching here.
