Testimonials

Working with Liz Ahmann, my son has definitely made great strides in keeping on top of his work. Now at 10 p.m. I hear ‘Oh, I don’t have much to do!’ rather than ‘Aagh! I hate the world!’

Katherine A., Washington D.C. Mother of a 12th grader

My daughter has blossomed under Liz Ahmann’s ADHD coaching. Liz has been a great help to her in many areas, but most of all she has given her the reassurance that she is wonderful just the way she is!

Carol H., Maryland Mother of a 6th grader

I worked with Liz Ahmann off and on for a few years while I was in college. At first, I was reluctant to try coaching, but over time I realized that I was getting better at planning things, developing routines, and solving problems. Liz helped me figure out how and why my executive function issues created challenges for me. Coaching helped me to learn new skills and to feel less overwhelmed.

Sarah S., Indiana College student, honors

Thank you – I think you are exactly what my daughter needed.

Elena W., Pennsylvania Mother of a college student

I just want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH! for coaching me through this journey … and being a factor in my road to success. You’ve been a real help, both in my studies and in my personal life (relationship issues and emotional stuff). Hugs to you!
