Tereasa Jones, M.S.
Senior Certified ADHD Coach


ABOUT TEREASA

Tereasa loves her job. She loves working with people who care about improving their lives and their relationships.

Over the years, she has worked with people from all walks of life.

·        People who have ADHD and need help with systems and strategies to improve their work, family, and social lives.

·        Men and women of all ages who are lonely and in need of friends and a support community. Our world is so mobile today that it is not unusual to find ourselves needing to build or rebuild our support communities which include friends.

·        Men and women of all ages who want to find that special person to spend their lives with.

·        Couples whose marriages are strained because of a lack of understanding about the effects of ADHD in marriage.

·        Couples who have a good relationship, but want a great one.

·        Empty nesters who find themselves needing to re-evaluate how they will proceed with life after their children have successfully launched.

·        Women diagnosed later in life with ADHD. Some of us were able to develop strategies that masked our ADHD until the hormonal ups and downs of perimenopause stopped us in our tracks. For the first time we recognize that we need help from the ground up learning about our diagnoses, what it means in our lives, and how to make adjustments and develop strategies to move forward.

·        Men and women who have lost their spouse and need to learn to live life again as a single person.

·        Men and women who want a second (or maybe a third) career as they age. Perhaps it is a retirement career.

People come to her for a variety of reasons, but they all have one thing in common. They want to have better, more fulfilling lives and relationships at home, at work and in their communities.

Tereasa holds a Master Degree in Counseling Psychology, is a Senior Certified ADHD Coach, A Master Relationship Coach, and has earned her Professional Certified Coach (PPC) from ICF.

Using the skills and methods that she has acquired over a lifetime of personal growth, extensive education, and study, she has been helping these people for over 20 years.

ASN Core Actions & Beliefs

    - Values & beliefs

    - Their own flavor of ADHD

    • We encourage client self-awareness as a tool to promote wisdom and discerning choices

    • Questioning is an important tool to assist the client in self-awareness/decision making at times

    • At other times the client does NOT have the information so we offer it in terms of options, role play, modeling, etc.

    • Some clients choose to take ADD/ADHD medication and some don't. - It is a personal choice

  • Making a Commitment to the Process +

    ADHD Coaching is NOT a cure or a quick-fix. Our ADHD coaching engagements are typically for 9 months to 1 year. We want our clients to walk away with habits, skills and tools that are self-sustaining. They are confident that they know how and will be successful in their endeavors. ADHD coaching is about making an investment in yourself that lasts a lifetime.
  • We Understand +

We honor and seek to elicit greatness from within the client. When needed we also offer options to promote client growth and development that will work for them "with" their ADHD

  • Collaborative Communications +

    Excellent communications between the client and ADHD coach are essential to the process. These skills include:

    - Complete honesty and openness

    - Absolute confidentiality

    - Compassionate directness

    - Validation when appropriate (no cheerleading)

    - Accountability

    - Practical & strategic
