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.
