Our executive function coaches think so too, and are thrilled to work with junior high and high school students as they navigate the awkward and exhilarating journey from childhood to adulthood. As parents, you love your kids and know them better than anyone, but sometimes another influential voice is needed. That’s why we are here.
If your son or daughter is disorganized, unmotivated, forgetful, a procrastinator and you cannot understand why they don’t just “try harder,” then let’s discuss what we can do to work together to steer them on the path to success.
Meet our Director Dr. Erik Konsmo
Your child is unique and gifted
We want to partner with you to guide them toward a life of happiness, independence and productivity. We hope you give us a chance to team your son or daughter with one of our Executive Function coaches who will help develop the life skills necessary to reach their potential.
We can coach your kids to help them:
- Set goals and establish steps to achieve them
- Focus and concentrate
- Begin projects with less procrastination
- Retain information
- Get more organized and keep track of their stuff
- Accurately determine how much time tasks will take
- Finish goals without letting distractions steer them sideways.
- Flexibly alter plans when the obstacles of life interfere.
- Self-monitor how they are doing.

I am a teacher with a passion for people of all ages! I love getting to know students and learning about what motivates and excites them. Being a teacher, I also understand the challenges that students often face in an educational setting. I am excited to encourage and uplift students by helping them develop Executive Function skills. My goal is that students learn these skills so they can have more success in all areas of life and feel confident that they can be their best.
In my free time you will find me at the beach, on a trail, or cooking in my kitchen. I also love DIY and home improvement projects. I am so excited to connect with you!
welcome you to the school year!
I have been teaching for over 12 years , grades TK- 6th. Most recently I was a classroom teacher at a sweet private school in Rancho Santa Fe, Ca where I taught fourth grade for 10 years. WhenI left to have my two babies, Skylar ( 3 years old) and Wyatt ( 1 year old) I took a new job as HST at Pacific Coast Academy where I was a liaison for homeschool families. I worked there for three years and loved helping parents teach their own kids. I learned so much about all of the resources, learning theories, and varied curricula that's available to families. I missed the actual day to day of teaching so much though so I will be back to in person teaching part time with elementary students, as well as my new role as an executive functioning coach here at Strive Coaching.
As a mom , and an educator, I believe in kids. I love helping students hone in on their
strengths and build upon goals they have for themselves. I'm excited to partner with all of you this year and watch our students soar!
Andy loves sports of all kinds, reading fantasy and science fiction, and playing board games. Specifically, he follows Manchester City of the Premier League, loves any book by Brandon Sanderson, and his favorite board game right now is Gloomhaven.
Andy has been married to his teacher wife Molly since 2017. They have a cat named Neville and reside in sunny San Diego.
I love coaching and have been doing it for over 10 years. I have a 1 year old son and another on the way. I enjoy playing and coaching basketball as well as being outdoors. I love teaching as well. I especially enjoy working with those that need extra support and getting to see their confidence grow in the classroom.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing board games with my husband of 18 years and two 'tweenage' daughters, camping in the beautiful PNW, cheering on the University of Washington Huskies and Seattle Seahawks, and going to music concerts.
