About Debbie: Hi, I’m Debbie Steinberg Kuntz, licensed marriage and family therapist and founder of Bright & Quirky. I’m really glad you’ve found us! When I started my family counseling practice a decade ago, I had no idea this would be my specialty. But my sons, now teenagers, had some unique strengths and challenges that I dove deeply into understanding. I learned that they were ‘2e’ or ‘twice exceptional,’ meaning they are smart and also have unique brain wiring that makes accessing those smarts at times challenging.  As I researched and found solutions for them, I started to share the learning with families in my private practice near Seattle. You may know that in the Seattle area, we have many highly skilled, uniquely wired people working for nearby high tech companies (i.e. Amazon, Microsoft).  My practice includes many such families, eager for information on raising 2e kids. To meet the need, I created in-person support groups for parents raising 2e kids. Their kids are very bright and struggle with learning, executive function, social, emotional and/or behavioral challenges. Some have diagnoses such as ADHD, autism/Aspergers, anxiety, depression and learning disabilities like dyslexia.

About Yulia: Hi, I’m Yulia, an Executive Functioning Coach for families. After a decade of coaching typical and outside-the-box students, I realized how fundamental a role parents play in their child’s development of crucial Executive Function Skills. I founded MindFull Education to teach families about Executive Functioning and how to design better systems for getting along and getting stuff done. My approach to coaching is founded on collaborative-problem-solving as well as mindfulness, guided meditation, journaling, and drawing. Having grown up with undiagnosed ADHD and an anxiety disorder, I can relate deeply to the children and families that I serve. Learn more about coaching at www.mindfulleducation.com/about.
