    Where do you turn when your child is struggling in school?  What is Executive Functioning?

    Executive functioning is a set of key mental skills that act as a command center in the brain. These skills help people do things like plan, manage time, control emotions, work with information and get tasks done. They’re also important for staying focused and solving problems.

    What is life coaching?

    Life coaching seeks to address specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client’s personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. It is a brief, solution-focused method of targeting day-to-day issues and uses the persons strengths to build on in achieving results.
