I can't believe his attitude changes in such a short time..."

    Thank you so much for all of your wonderful coaching. You really do a great job, and I know it's not an easy job to do. You have to have enormous patience, skill, empathy and intuition.

    Kerin Bellak-Adams coached me through a difficult licensing process that included extensive written and oral examination.  She taught me to reduce anxiety by teaching relaxation techniques, then helped me to break down study areas into manageable chunks. She also helped me to prepare for the oral examination by having me practice answering questions in the expected knowledge areas which with her help, I finally passed! I highly recommend Kerin Bellak-Adams.

The medicine helps, but without Kerin, I would not be able to function at the level I am in my family and work environments. I am extremely grateful I was referred to Kerin and would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with ADD."
