Juliana uses a strengths-based, practical approach that incorporates neuroscience and evidence-based strategies to help clients make their lives work for them, rather than the other way around. She offers ADHD Coaching to those that experience impairments from executive dysfunction, and coaching for those who are generally looking to to build skills and reach their goals. She provides practical, hands-on directives to clients and shares tools ADHDers need to: better manage time, sustain productive habits, reduce procrastination, master communication with others and themselves, understand their ADHD, and achieve their life goals. She additionally offers accountability check-in calls between sessions to hold clients accountable for their action plans, if desired.
Juliana draws guidance from her insights with her own lived experience with ADHD and ongoing supervision with Bernadette. She also incorporates knowledge from her Sociology undergraduate studies and grasps the importance of one's social location (contextual understanding of social identities relating to societal systems, social change, culture, marginalization, and inequality) and how these factors impact client's behaviours, challenges, and knowledge of self. She also incorporates insights from her ongoing enrollment in the Master's of Counselling Psychology Program through Yorkville University.
She is completing the ADHD Practitioner Certification through PESI, and is being directly instructed by experts in the study of ADHD and Psychiatry including Dr. Russell Barkley and Dr. Edward Hallowell.
