If your son or daughter:
- is transitioning to college or the workplace.
- has complicated needs such as ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, and/or emotional issues.
- needs support to be successful.
Welcome, you’re in the right place.
Young adults with complicated needs require support during challenging transitions, and I can help.
My educational therapy and coaching program gives young adults the academic and personal regulation skills they need to succeed in new, demanding environments. I can help your son or daughter make a successful leap to the next big chapter in their life!
My SUCCESS System helps your child:
- Fill in gaps in academic skills.
- Learn! because my teaching methods match your child’s natural learning style.
- Improve personal regulation skills.
- Understand the “rules” of the new environment.
- Develop emotional resilience.
Young adults in transition must develop new skills for the next phase of their lives.
This may involve:
- Improving basic academic skills or functional reading, writing and math skills.
- Learning the “rules” for a new environment (for example, talking to a boss or instructor, dealing with conflict, adapting to the culture of the new environment, making friends).
- Improving self-regulation skills such as time management, organization, and follow through.
- Dealing with the emotional impact of the transition.

Young adults with needs arising from ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, and/or emotional issues…
Often need support to develop the practical skills they need to be successful in a college or work environment.
They may be missing foundational reading or math skills and need one-to-one academic help to catch up.
They may learn differently and need specialized teaching approaches to master their classwork or catch up on functional reading, writing, or math skills.
They may have not developed the personal regulation skills of time management, self-motivation, scheduling, prioritizing and organization that are crucial to directing and managing their lives.
They may not have learned the “rules” for adult behavior in college or on the job. For example, they may need to learn how to self-advocate, speak to supervisors, and set personal boundaries.
They may have difficulty regulating their emotions, managing frustration, staying motivated and interested when tasks are “boring,” and persisting in the face of obstacles.
The transition from high school to college or work is difficult for any young adult. Adding to the stress are the challenges of complicated needs. These added pressures are often too much for a young person to handle without specialized support.
“Thank you so much for everything. I had a great time with you! School has long been a sore spot for me and I think I finally changed the tides!”
