Works with: Students (Ages 12+) and Adults
ADHD, Learning Disability, & Grief Coach
Justin Converse became a certified life coach in 2018 through The Life Coach Institute of Orange County and began working with both children and adults before starting his training with JST Coaching and Training. JST focuses on working with teens and adults with ADHD and Executive Functioning issues. Prior to coaching, Justin majored in psychology at Ohio University, and it is because of his experiences there that sparked his interest in coaching. Justin now coaches teens (ages 12+) and adults. At age six, he was diagnosed with ADHD as well as a Learning Disability. Because of this, he was medicated at an early age and an Individual Education Plan (IEP) was established. Back then it was standard to treat ADHD and Executive Functioning issues solely with medications and academic accommodations because it was assumed he couldn’t succeed on his own. In school, he was very disorganized, but because of these accommodations he always had someone to make sure he turned in his work on time. However, this situation set him up for failure once he started university. Without the IEP and personal instructor, he struggled to keep his life organized and to find the motivation to study.
These struggles with basic life skills made Justin realize the benefits of having a knowledgeable and experienced coach and has given him a passion to help others succeed and achieve their goals. Combining Justin’s personal experience with his knowledge of ADHD and executive functioning, Justin and his clients can work together to reach their goals and attain the skills needed to succeed in life. Justin's belief is that once you take the step to join in the online coaching process, nothing is out of reach. Justin's hobbies include paddle-boarding, taking the dog to the beach, and traveling as much as possible.
