Coaching provides a positive, specialized approach that encourages you to dig deeper to discover your unique design and supports you while you move forward to living the life you desire.
We seldom consider how our current struggles might prepare us for future service, yet God often equips us to serve others as a result of our most painful experiences. Though I was completely unaware of it at the time, through living with my own ADHD and raising children with ADHD, God gave me the gift of His comfort so that I could share it with others through their struggles. Your trials will enable you to do the same.
Certified ADHD & Christian Life Coach
I am a Certified and Credentialed ADHD and Christian Life Coach based in Stratford, ON. My passion for coaching and belief in the benefits has led me to my role as the Assistant Director of Training at the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTCenter) and a coach instructor with iACTcenter, and a coach trainer at Leadership Coaching Canada (LLC).
My holistic approach brings clarity, awareness, and growth. I have the privilege of partnering with my clients to live their best life, the life they were called to live, by filling the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. By identifying where growth is desired, setting goals and holding accountability, my clients reach their most desired goals and start truly living out their dreams.
Are you experiencing the daily struggle of ADHD symptoms or executive functioning challenges? Do you feel like you’re disconnected from yourself, your identity, and who you are? Are the daily struggles holding you back from getting things done? Are you feeling a lack of motivation or lost in understanding your true purpose?
I am trained in helping people discover themselves and find their strengths, gifting, and talents which leads to adoring who God created them to be, fearfully and wonderfully made. Find out who you are using my Living on Purpose with ADHD Workbook.
We all have a light within us. You are already born with the qualities you will need to solve your problems and move forward. I partner with my clients as they reach each milestone, one at a time. The ultimate goal is building confidence, self-worth, strategies and empowerment.
I am the proud mother of two creative, spontaneous, and fun-loving boys. I truly consider myself blessed to have an incredibly supportive husband who shares my love of family and service to others. As a family, we enjoy being active in our community and church, sharing epic game nights, and pursuing various sports and outdoor adventures.
It is my Mission to help people see themselves as God sees them, to believe that you are not broken, you do not need to be fixed, and you are naturally creative, resourceful and truly whole! The answers you need are within you; let’s partner together to discover and experience the change you desire!
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit
Coaching is a positive, specialized approach that encourages you to discover you’re unique and innate strengths, gifts and talents.
We bring our expertise and vast understanding of the unique challenges common to people affected by ADHD that can commonly get in the way of enjoying the life they desire.
Coaching supports you while you discover who you are and what you were created to do. Finding what lights you up so you can do more of it.
We are focused on actions and behaviours in the present and how to build personalized strategies to achieve your goals while overcoming the practical issues that get in the way with ADHD.
Coaches are armed with the coaching skills and competencies that have prepared them to coach the whole person, not just their ADHD!
An ADHD Life Coach provides the process and guidance, but you’re the one who ultimately needs to do all the hard work to create change and progress.
What my clients and students are saying:
Heidi always does a wonderful job of holding space for us in session. She has an incredibly thoughtful way of keeping us on track, while allowing each individual time to share insights with the group. I truly appreciate Heidi!
Heidi has a big heart for her clients and a huge heart for God!
Whether you work with her as her client, student, colleague, or fellow coach, you will be blessed beyond words because of her commitment to her faith and her passion to make a difference in the lives that cross her path.
Heidi’s devotion to her clients is evident in her zeal to provide excellence in all that she does in her calling from God.
If you have the opportunity to work with Heidi as a client, alongside her as a fellow coach, or in other capacities, you will be a better person because of that relationship.
Heidi is an incredibly talented and caring coach. She has supported my goals, dreams, and guided me through my ups and downs with Christ-focused and practical advice.
Heidi made me go back to the beginning identifying what my current challenges were and what is missing in my life…She made me feel comfortable and I enjoyed every session.
I was experiencing a burn-out at work and though I did not know it at the time, I needed direction and an understanding of my core capabilities. Heidi was compassionate and at the same time, provided me with constructive feedback. She guided my thoughts above all with a Biblical perspective and empowered me to be a better person. I am so thankful for her.
Heidi is AMAZING! At 40, I was diagnosed with ADHD and totally frustrated. She helped me with resources, tools, and systems that made tasks less stressful for me. The entire time she’s helping you determine your goals and how you’ll reach them, she models how to create a plan step by step without becoming overwhelmed. There’s no judgement and the best part is her spirit, encouragement, sense of humour, experience, and her love for God. She will remind you of your strengths and how God loves you and helps you with your weaknesses.
It’s as if Heidi is like an EXTRAORDINARY special curator of God’s amazingly different children.
She’s not just collecting, no! She gathers, dusts off the old rules and beliefs, and stands in awe at the incredible values, strengths and “superpowers” of these ADHD -ers… Who for YEARS tried to figure out what was wrong with them or why they couldn’t get things done
It’s as if God gives her the keys, the magnifying glass, and a mirror to show everyone- THIS IS WHO YOU ARE!!! Wow, look at that sparkle!
Look at that gem!
I highly recommend taking this amazing journey with Heidi as you discover your sparkling strengths and abilities!
I couldn’t believe how much I gained and took away from such a short personal chat with Heidi. I appreciate her reassurance, understanding and inspiration. I’m still trying to untangle the knot personally, but I feel a lot better moving forward professionally, and I’m so grateful! Heidi has such a warm presence and is kind and fun. I feel so grateful to have her as my iACTcenter instructor and to have her in my life to learn from and connect with. Thank you Heidi!
“Heidi has a talent for teaching and presenting information. She starts out keeping topics basic, easy to understand then takes you to the next level. She is patient with her students and makes everyone feel valued. In a world where so many are trying to protect what they know, Heidi shares everything she can to help her students become successful. She is inviting, upbeat and sincere. Her talents are in instructing and coaching but she is also a master creator of aesthetically pleasing content for anything you can imagine! The opportunity to be mentored by Heidi has been life changing.
She is a gift from God!”
“In all honesty it’s very hard to summarize just how much of a blessing Heidi has been to me. I feel like she gets me more than anyone ever has. She is patient, encouraging, understanding and gives the type of love and grace that I’m learning to give myself. Heidi offers accountability that is encouraging, not judgmental. Whenever I fall, she’s there to help me back up. Her suggestions are practical, like arrows pointing you in the right direction for this road map of ADHD life. Having Heidi’s help as a coach is like having the biggest cheerleader in your corner! I will be forever grateful for her!”
