A Safe Space to Grow

In Renee's words: "I have clients 18 to 78 years old.  I love working with people who want to grow, can be vulnerable enough to talk about their struggles, are willing to dig deep to experience real transformation, and have an open mind. My clients always get to decide how fast or slow they want to move forward in the coaching process.

"I teach my clients to celebrate victories large and small. I encourage clients to find the words for their feelings, challenges, setbacks, and failures. I support them in recreating the picture and narrative that they have of themselves so they can get unstuck, move forward, and feel better about who they are in their lives, at work, and in relationships.

"I create a safe space for my clients to be deeply vulnerable, to be understood, to be honest without fear of judgment or labels, and even to dive into topics they may have never wanted to or didn’t feel they could talk about before."

Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together

"As a coach, I am a mirror, reflecting to my clients parts of themselves in a loving, gentle, compassionate way. While coaching, I act as a filter, illuminating specifics, giving insights, and connecting the dots. I support my clients as they put the puzzle pieces together, and help them to see and understand things about themselves and their ADHD that they have may never have known or understood before.

"During coaching sessions, I spend time digging into motivations and patterns. What are my client’s specific challenges and distractions? I am curious. I strive to make no assumptions. I am open to the destination presenting itself as we talk. I bring skills of active listening, presence, processing, and reflecting. My clients say they feel heard."

Addressing Core Issues

"As a coach, I use my intuition. I can often sense when issues that are stepped over or brushed aside are important. I gently redirect my clients, returning them to the larger topic or core issue, which is their higher priority. I check in periodically as we move through big, sensitive issues. Helping my clients to move through their major blocks can greatly free them up to be able to attend to other things in their lives.

"I care about helping my clients to be who they want to be instead of merely helping them to do more of what they think they must or should do. I support them in figuring out whether doing these things is actually important to them. To be able to accomplish more of what we truly want and need to do, we must first look within to discover the thoughts, beliefs, fears, and self-talk that stand in our way. It can be tempting to avoid looking deeper and uncovering and unraveling the mess that our brains can be, but that is where the magic is! That is where our answers lie."

With Lightness and Humor

"I frequently laugh with my clients in our coaching sessions. Finding humor and lightness takes power away from their ADHD struggles. The challenges are real, yet after a client is in coaching for awhile, the challenges are rarely debilitating. They become merely annoyances or irritations, and on good days, the client can see them with humor: 'Oh, isn’t that funny that I think I am going to remember this if I don’t write it down?' Or, before setting a cereal bowl and spoon on the counter, 'Nope! I’m going to put these in the dishwasher now. It definitely won't be as difficult as my brain is telling me, and I will be so happy that I did!'”
