Kyra Todd is a professional coach and founder of Northern Virginia Coaching Solutions. As a coach, she works primarily with high school and college-age students with ADHD or executive function challenges. She has a keen interest in exploring different modes of support to empower young people throughout the transition from high school to college and onward toward greater autonomy.
Kyra completed the JST Empowering Students Through Coaching program in 2018 and is credentialed as an Associate Certified Coach by the International Coaching Federation. In addition, she has received advanced training in Ross Greene’s Cooperative and Proactive Solutions problem-solving model, as well as training from Impact ADHD to educate and support parents of children with ADHD. Kyra is a member of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (CHADD), and the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) – serving on their ADDA Achieves Transition to College Committee. She is also a member of the ADHD Resource Group of Northern Virginia.
In her former professional life Kyra was a lawyer in Washington, D.C., who, like all good lawyers, encouraged and facilitated hard conversations to diffuse conflict. The drive to understand other people’s experience and perspective remains central to her coaching practice, as well as an illuminating guidepost in her life. She hikes with her two dogs any day she can and will watch almost any sci-fi show out there—unconvinced that there is such a thing as “bad” sci-fi.
