Kristine (Shiverick) Kaufmann, M.Ed., ACG, CACP believes that every person has the ability to succeed and build a better life experience for themselves. As a professionally trained ADHD/executive function/academic coach, Kristine facilitates a process of self-discovery, understanding, and acceptance so her clients learn how they operate most efficiently and effectively. Through the coaching partnership clients gain greater insight into their goals, values, strengths, talents, and passions while also creating awareness as to the challenges that are holding them back. Kristine’s clients learn to use this information to create strategies and structure to help minimize and overcome ADHD and executive function challenges. Kristine specializes in executive function development and partners with her clients to create positive and sustainable change by helping her clients discover what motivates them while developing stronger executive function skills so that challenges with time management, planning, prioritizing, organizing, emotional regulation, initiating and seeing a task through to completion become easier processes. No two people are the same, therefore Kristine helps clients see their own possibilities more clearly, as they learn to create their own recipe for success. Kristine provides coaching to those diagnosed with ADHD or those just struggling with some executive function challenges without any formal diagnosis.
Kristine received her basic, advanced, and family ADHD life coach training from the ADD Coach Academy. She received her academic coach training through Gretchen Wegner. She continues to participate in ongoing educational opportunities including education around the development of critical executive functions. Kristine’s coaching practice is inclusive of all individuals and embraces diversity. She coaches students of many ages, including students in graduate/PhD/medical school programs, parents, and adults using a strengths-based approach.
Kristine is a member of ADDA, ACO, CHADD, and PACC.
