Full Sails Coaching, LLC is rooted in the idea that individuals propel themselves forward– whether in work, school, or relationships– when goals can be aligned with their inner drives and motivations. 

We focus on parent coaching and executive functioning coaching for neurodivergent individuals across the lifespan. Our approach is pragmatic and centered on identifying areas where individuals are stuck or feeling ineffective, determining the unique underlying reasons, and implementing new strategies and systems to chart a way forward. We work sensitively and creatively with individuals and families to support the development of new skills as well as deepen the sense of meaning in their efforts.

About Aniella

Aniella Perold, Ph.D., has years of experience working with students (ages 5 through adulthood) with ADHD, executive functioning difficulties, and other learning differences, as well as adults seeking parenting guidance. Throughout her work, Aniella draws on her understanding of how motivation, self-view, and emotion regulation skills impact our success. 


In her work with students, Aniella’s approach is shaped by her doctoral-level training in developmental psychology and neuropsychological testing, her experience teaching undergraduates, and her previous role supervising and training other executive functioning coaches. Her approach to parent coaching is informed by her robust empirical knowledge base, having spent six years conducting psychological research on early attachment relationships and social-emotional development. Aniella is passionate about supporting parents as they negotiate their needs with those of their developing children.
