Executive functioning issues can arise as soon as students begin attending school. Parents and teachers may notice the following difficulties in students in elementary, middle, and high school:
- Having difficulty controlling behavior or emotions
- Lack of not only focus but also drive and persistence to begin or complete a task
- Having difficulty working on projects with his or her classmates, participating in group exercises, and having a poor relationship with teachers
- He or she has trouble organizing his school materials and study area, following multistep directions, or managing long-term projects.
- For a student with executive functioning issues, cramming sessions and last-minute task initiation and completion are common.
Planning, monitoring, execution, and working memory are all important skills for maintaining attention, cognitive flexibility, impulse inhibition, and goal-directed persistence. Executive functioning is important in reading, essay structure, math problem solving, homework completion, test performance, and becoming active learners in the classroom. Our Queens executive function coach works with children ages 6-18 and adults.
Our Executive Functioning Coaches work with children and adults with difficulty with executive functioning skills. They boost students’ and professionals’ confidence and help them become more effective learners and workers. Students learn to organize, plan, prioritize, focus, avoid distractions, and keep materials and tasks organized. All of these goals include improving memory and information retention, focusing on and completing tasks, reducing procrastination, organizing school assignments, managing time more effectively, and the ability to think carefully before acting.
MEET OUR QUEENS, EXECUTIVE FUNCTION COACH, SHONNA WHO COULD COME TO YOUR HOME
Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology
Shonna received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Yeshiva University with specialization in neuropsychology. Currently, she is completing her post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at Lenox Hill Hospital. She has extensive training in evaluating and providing individually tailored recommendations for individuals with ADHD and learning disabilities (reading, writing, and non-verbal learning disorders). She also has experience treating anxiety and depression and can help manage psychiatric presentations surrounding learning difficulties (such as test anxiety). She has experience working with children ages 6-18 and adults.
Shonna’s approach involves seeing each individual as a whole, taking into account an individual’s unique strengths and weaknesses in order to provide the best support. This is used to formulate strategies for reading and writing support, and executive functioning support. Within executive functioning, commonly targeted areas include time management, motivation, organizational strategies, and task completion. She is passionate about helping individuals feel confident in their abilities in order to succeed.
Through her doctoral training in Clinical Psychology, Marisa currently works therapeutically with teens and adults ages 17-50 on issues ranging from test anxiety and college preparation to executive functioning tasks such as decision-making, time management, and problem-solving skills with the goal of enhancing self-efficacy and confidence in meeting everyday demands. She applies an empathic and person-centered style to her clients and collaborates with families to ensure a holistic approach to each set of unique challenges they may face.
In her free time, Marisa enjoys taking her dogs for walks, and spending time with family, friends, and in nature, which she finds especially healing. She can often be seen having a lacrosse catch whenever possible or playing soccer with neighbors and friends.
