What Makes My ADHD and Positive Intelligence Coaching So Effective?
After more than a decade of coaching, I have found that the combination of four powerful elements has resulted in the most dramatic transformation and lasting positive change for my clients. The four elements are:
Your Energy and Commitment
My Experience with ADHD Coaching
The Effectiveness of Positive Intelligence
Your Increasing Spiritual Awareness
Your Energy and Commitment
A strong level of energy and commitment on the part of you, the client, is perhaps the most essential ingredient for your transformation. The stronger this element, the more you will be able to gain from the other elements. As your coach, I can help you nourish and expand your energy and commitment, but only if you arrive with some significant motivation to change. Generally, the more you are suffering, the more motivated you are likely to be.
Positive Intelligence (PQ)
The PQ paradigm offers tools with which to identify the many assumptions and beliefs that are holding us back. The PQ operating system helps us to expose trouble-causing beliefs and replace them with wisdom available from deep within each of us. For over two years, I have been using Positive Intelligence myself. For the past year, I have been sharing it with my clients, who have found it transformative.
ADHD coaching is a specialized area of life coaching which is best when built on advanced training from an accredited coaching school. After basic coach training from Leadership that Works and advanced ADHD coach training from the ADD Coach Academy, I earned the PCC credential from the International Coaching Federation and the CACP credential from the Professional Association of ADHD Coaches. A decade of coaching individuals with ADHD has deepened my ability to not judge myself or my client but rather to see us as creative, resourceful, and whole, seeking to find our best ways to live in a culture often organized for people with brain wiring that is different from ours.
I am a lifelong seeker of wisdom and truth. My journey has taken many paths so far, and I am grateful for what each one has taught me. To me, the word “spiritual” points to our being, our deep essence – a part of us that is more than our busy minds and bodies. Becoming quiet and present in the moment is a pathway to the deep wisdom of the Universe that is available to each of us. An important goal is to bring more awareness of our deeper identity into our everyday activity. This means being more present and aware in each moment while still doing the things that need to be done in our lives. With this awareness, we experience both increased peace and improved productivity.
I would love to hear about your challenges and hopes and to answer any questions you may have.
A Few Testimonials
Sense of failure replaced by hope and well-being:
“I am experiencing real growth in areas of life that have plagued me for years. ADHD has always been my most frequent source of frustration, discouragement, sense of failure, and fatigue. These coaching sessions have made me feel seen and understood, empowered for change, and have grown my overall sense of well-being and hope.”
MG, College Professor, Indiana

Huge positive shift in relationship:
“My wife has noticed a huge shift in the way I now often respond instead of react. I am definitely often bringing a better me to the table when it comes to my relationship with my wife and look forward to continuing to grow in this respect. [She] can’t get over the changes.”
DE, Government Contractor, Virginia
I grew up in Wisconsin and went to school in the Mid-West and New York City. Then, like many folks with ADHD, I moved through a series of careers. I was a pastor, private tutor, employment consultant, and owner/manager of a remodeling company and a building consulting company.
My family includes my wife, two adult children and their partners, and four grandchildren. One of my great joys is spending time with all of them!
I was diagnosed with ADHD after living with it for many decades. Coaching helped enormously. As a result, I wanted to do the same for others and went back to school for coach training.
Now I am an experienced ADHD and Positive Intelligence coach, holding a PCC credential from the International Coaching Federation and a CACP credential from the Professional Association for ADHD Coaches. My years of personal experience with ADHD challenges while managing my businesses and personal relationships have been good preparation for assisting my clients with the issues they bring to coaching.
