Good plans shape good decisions. That’s why good planning helps make

PACE Academic, Family & Individual Life Coaching and Consulting was founded in the spring of 2002 by Patricia Wood. Pat recognized the benefits coaching can bring to people with AD/HD.
"Coaching can take a person from letting life happen to them to taking control of their life, often for the very first time" Pat said.
"What makes Pat so effective is that she is smart, funny, quick on her feet and kind yet firm. She is willing to go the extra mile to guide her clients to make the changes that they want to make" says Dela Bryan, coach..
"Pat holds the flashlight so I can see what direction I’m going in. I make the changes in the direction I want to go while she lights the path." added a client.
Pat thinks people with AD/HD are not defective. “They are bright, inquisitive, think outside the box and have a wicked sense of humor. It’s just a matter of harnessing these qualities in a constructive way. My goal as your coach is to see that you reach your goals and put myself out of business.
