After a 25 year career in the field of education and school counseling, Diane McLean was inspired to provide life coaching services to children, adolescents, and adults in the area of executive functioning skills. These important life skills, often not explicitly taught in traditional education systems, are critical to managing day-to-day activities in work, family, school, and leisure and when lacking, create barriers to success. After extensive training by experts in executive functioning skills, life coaching, social cognition, and conditions such as ADHD/ADD, anxiety, and Autism Spectrum disorders, Diane committed herself to providing coaching services to help individuals overcome executive functioning challenges and acquire the skills and knowledge needed to experience success.
In 2006, Diane began integrating therapy dogs into her work in social/emotional learning, self-regulation, and executive functions
training. Her current service dog partner, Digby, is a yellow Labrador Retriever who brings fun and excitement to Diane’s work.
A proud native Texan, Diane received her B.S. in Education from the University of Texas and her M.Ed. in Counseling and Student Services from the University of North Texas. A Professional Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation, Diane is also graduate and faculty member of the ADD Coach Academy. Diane and her family currently reside in Overland Park, Kansas.
