Don’t worry, we all do! But when you learn how to manage your time, you have greater control over your life. You can meet deadlines, be on time, coordinate a busy schedule and reduce the stress in your life.
What we do, when we do it and how we get it done are controlled by the executive functions of the brain. Do you have difficulty keeping your life (and stuff) organized? Is it hard to plan and prioritize your day? Are you frustrated with a lack of motivation or letting others down? You can learn how to do all these things and keep both time and task in order.
Our approach to time management, organization and planning is entirely brain-based. In our courses, you understand how your brain is wired and how to work with your strengths – and weaknesses. Together, we train your brain to retain and use the visual tools/strategies that will help you reach your goals.
Regular classes are scheduled monthly for time management and/or planning. You will either learn time management tools/strategies that you can implement immediately – or you will have a clear plan for how to get your projects started (or finished). We also offer customized, on-site courses. Contact us for more information about private training. Classes are taught in person in the Portland Metro area, Sonoma County, CA and online anywhere in the world. Raise your productivity (without the stress) and learn how to:
We teach both 6 week and intensive courses of the Seeing My Time® Program. Participants aged 12+ must attend with at least one parent. In this course, you will learn about the brain and how to support it with visual tools and strategies. Parents report that their children are able to deliver what they need to – on time and with far less stress. Participants learn how to organize their piles and thoughts as well as their lives. Read about our private one-on-one courses or our Intensive Group Family Course in California (August 2018).
In one three hour class, Mary Ellen introduced me to a number of tools and techniques that have simplified my life, enabling me to create order and serenity where there was disorder and anxiety, and to make progress in areas where I’d been stuck.
I’m no longer drowning in a mountain of minutiae and piles of papers, and the things that I want and need to get done are getting done–all of which makes life much more relaxing and satisfying. And perhaps best of all, Mary Ellen has made it fun!

I’ve struggled my whole life with distraction and procrastination, especially in work situations with challenging, unclear projects and tasks. I spent a couple of afternoons with Mary Ellen figuring out what was getting in my way . . . and what I could do about it. I’ve since implemented several of the tools that I learned from her and things are much improved! And she was fun to work with. Highly recommended for anyone with similar challenges.
