My Approach to Helping

As an adult with ADHD, I have learned what works and what doesn't when it comes to living well with this this fascinating condition. Medication can help with staying on task and therapy may help with adjusting to the diagnosis and learning better ways to cope, but if you are already a high functioning adult, is this as good as it gets? Even though you know things could be so much worse, you're equally certain you are no where near reaching your potential. This gets more frustrating as time goes by and too many gifted adults with ADHD are spending way too much of their time and energy trying to get better at things they just aren't good at, while ignoring their true strengths. What if there was a better way ? What if you could create an ADHD friendly life instead of just trying to pass for "normal'?

More Info About My Practice

After twenty years as a licensed therapist and my own adult ADHD diagnosis, I sought out additional training and certification to become a life coach and never looked back. Coaching focuses on goals, not problems and we talk about the future, not the past. We get things done and we celebrate them. My clients appreciate being coached from the convenience of their home or office, laptop via video chat or by phone. I've been told that my coach approach is the perfect blend of honest, direct, "no nonsense" feedback, with warmth, sarcastic humor and playfulness. You provide the commitment and desire to change, I bring the guidance, support and accountability that gets you moving forward with more fun and more freedom. Life doesn't have to be so hard - let's create your ADHD friendly life.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have a real passion for working with smart, creative achievers who appear to have it all together, but who secretly struggle to hide, overcompensate for or feel like an imposter because of their ADHD. I spent literally decades dealing with my hidden ADHD and the procrastination, perfectionism and people pleasing that left me too exhausted to express my genuine gifts. I finally decided to stop apologizing, excusing and over-explaining my ADHD "shortcomings" and found a better way. Now, my mission is to help other "high functioning but underperforming" adults with ADHD to embrace their gifts, reprogram their negative beliefs and create an ADHD friendly life.

Groups I Work With

    If you are a high achieving adult with ADHD who is tired of "working harder", overcompensating and feeling like an imposter, maybe therapy isn't the answer to moving your game piece forward in life. ADHD Life Coaching with an experienced therapist is not your typical talk therapy. We don't focus on what's going wrong or on the past. Chances are, you've already done enough of that, right ? The coach approach centers on what's going right and how to get more of that into your life. I take clients through my proven process of identifying what they want, the obstacles to getting it ( they might not be what you think they are ) and then creating a plan for getting you there. Coaching with me provides the guidance, support and accountability you need to go from thinking about it to doing it. I won't give up on you and I won't let you disappoint yourself. If you're done with feeling like you work way too hard for the results you're getting and know there is so much more you're capable of, you may be ready for coaching with a straight talking, results oriented coach who learned how to manage her own ADHD and love her life.
