H.A.D.I. stands for "Hope. Achieve. Develop. Inspire."—and it's also Hadi Yassin's first name. The Certified Professional Coach and psychology graduate student is the man behind H.A.D.I., through which he leads life coaching sessions for children, new parents, and couples. Yassin has a child-development emphasis in his psychology studies, and he uses his learned skills as a life coach to help children develop problem-solving, decision-making, and socialization skills. He also calls on these studies to inform his coaching sessions with families of autistic children and new parents, which help prepare them for the challenges of raising a family. Finally, Yassin works with couples to help strengthen their bond and develop tools for navigating a marriage's rocky moments. And as an immigrant scholar, Yassin is in tune with the complexities immigrant families face in the United States, and he can tailor his services to these needs.
