About Frank Coppola

My name is Frank Coppola MA, ODC, ACG and I have a passion for personal and professional coaching, with a specialization in people with ADD. I find it gratifying working with adults - parents, entrepreneurs, couples and educators - with and without ADD. I believe firmly that the only thing wrong with ADD is not knowing you have it! Once properly diagnosed and properly coached, people with ADD have unique advantages waiting to be appreciated by themselves and others. I am an ADD Benefit’s Coach & Trainer. In a world designed by people with invisible challenges like ADD, we can sometimes feel misplaced. I love helping others understand and appreciate how their “unique brain wiring” can actually be their strongest friend and ally. We work together to uncover your talents and maximize your strengths so you can take full advantage and benefit from your ADD.
