“Having struggled my whole life with procrastination and other ADD-related issues that have either prevented me from reaching my full potential or destroyed my quality of life in the process of achieving my goals, I have tried every time-management and goal-setting strategy, every “planning tool” out there, spending lots of money and time chasing solutions.  Over the course of my career, I have worked with executive coaches and life coaches from whom I gained some benefit, but never enough to change the game for me mostly because—as I see it now—they treated symptoms instead of getting to the root cause of the problem.

When I started working with Kari, I was at a total impasse, about to give up on a dream I had been working towards for years and also recovering from a chronic illness probably brought on by years of stress.  Kari’s approach is the only one that has helped me to really start to transform my life because it addresses the deeper underlying causes of maladaptive behaviors like procrastination—in my case, lack of alignment with my values, cognitive distortions, and psychological defense mechanisms.

Her approach is extremely comprehensive, approaching problems from numerous angles and providing a wealth of resources to address them.  Also, having suffered from chronic illness herself, she is extremely sensitive to the unique challenges that chronic illness presents and was able to give me some excellent strategies to work through those issues as I continue to recover.

She employs helpful techniques such as recording our sessions which was really useful for review mid-way through the week to keep me on track.

If you think you’ve tried everything and nothing’s changed, I highly recommend working directly with Kari or taking one of her courses.  It is not an exaggeration to say Kari’s coaching is life-changing!

“I was diagnosed with ADD three years ago, at the age of 42.  I have always struggled with time management, procrastination and completing tasks. Learning I have ADD explained why these issues have been so hard for me to fix.  Before working with Dr. Miller, I did not know how to fix or control these issues.  Self-awareness is key to improvement, but without knowing what to look for, it’s hard to find it.  Since working with Dr. Miller, I have learned that defense mechanisms contribute to these issues in my life, and it make it harder to take action and get started on tasks.  I have learned to recognize fears and insecurities more quickly, and question my thoughts and feelings, which helps me to take action sooner.  I learned ways to be on time more often. It is up to me to navigate through the pitfalls of being a person with ADD.  Dr. Miller has given me the tools I need to successfully keep my eye on what I am thinking and feeling, so that I can get the job done, on time!  I highly recommend working with Dr. Miller if you are looking to be that timely, organized person you know you can be!

“Dr. Kari is a great listener, has tons of strategies to offer and is very encouraging and supportive each step of the way. I have been a professional Masters level Counselor/Social Worker for 25 years and I despite my vast knowledge and experience with ADHD I also have to live with the disorder myself and it’s always easier to see how to help someone else than it is to help yourself.

Dr. Kari acknowledged my strengths and affirmed my abilities in our very first conversation which was, at that time, a huge boost to the negative self-talk I had been wallowing in.

We will never reach our potential if we don’t have someone to help us find it, believe in it, and go for it. Dr. Kari does that! We all need a good coach and she meets all the qualifications and then some!”

“You’re the only person in my life who understands me and what I’m going through. I’m so grateful for you! Every day my life is better because I know you.”

“Firstly, just wanted to say I LOVED your course and got so much out of it. This weekend I have been re-listening to the modules. Each time I listen I get so much more from each session.

I am focusing on my diet and finally started exercising again after months of inactivity. I have started eating more good quality protein, eating every few hours and cutting down on the sugar. I am learning to listen to my body more now – which is what I learnt from your lovely course. I really like the way you work!”

– Samantha L.

“I can’t believe what’s happened to me over the past six months! When we started, I almost couldn’t even dream of getting myself together enough to finish my master’s degree. Your strategies work!”

– Jenny H.

“Thank you so much for being such an important and beneficial influence on me. I would not be where I am today at all without you! You are an amazing person and there is a light inside you that draws everyone in. I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to work with you.”

Tracey K.

“Kari, I’ve worked with other ADD coaches before, but I never had the experience with them that I’ve had with you.  You have the true gift of inspiring me with confidence.  You have given me so much, but if I had to boil it down to one thing, I would say that you helped me take away my self-doubt and vicious criticism and replace them with energy and drive. There are not enough words to thank you.”

  – Alice M.

“You are a true blessing, thank you!”

“THANK YOU SO MUCH for such a wonderful phone meeting and session. It was tremendously positive and productive and left me very excited. I feel very fortunate and thank you so much for your generosity and wisdom – I felt I would have liked to talk to you for hours! (I bet all your clients feel that way.) Right off the bat it felt very productive with your engaged and perceptive insights and expertise.”
