If you have ADHD or think you do, let me confirm what you likely already know: Adult ADHD is very real, and unless you manage it, it will manage you.
Adult ADHD is very different from the ADHD of childhood. Although you may not “act” hyperactive, perhaps you become irritable, impatient. Thoughts seem to race much faster. As a child, your school day was shorter, expectations were less significant. As an adult, your day is 12 hours long or longer, and you have responsibilities, not just to yourself, but to your co-workers, employees, boss, family, spouse, partner, children, and in some cases, to your parents who are now depending on you.
Focus, concentration, the ability to stay with a conversation without thinking simultaneously about your response…should you laugh, look serious, smile….? Organizing your life, but finding those shoes you KNOW were just there! Getting to the movies on time (to say nothing about getting to work on time). Remembering …. Well a lot of different things.
Frustration, negative self-talk and thinking, feeling overwhelmed, overstimulated; emotional meltdowns, depression, anxiety, worry, these are just some of the negative effects of an unmanaged ADHD.
You can get unstuck. You’re smart, talented, creative, a real go-getter.
I can help you. I can help you learn skills and techniques that will help your memory, accomplish day-to-day tasks more easily, learn how to use that hyper-focus to your advantage, speak at meetings, advance your career, care for yourself so you will do not just what you need to, but what you want to be.
As your coach, I will be there to support, encourage, and help you develop the techniques to better manage time, organize yourself, de-stress the emotional distress. Set reasonable expectations for yourself, and strengthen your self-esteem. Develop the emotional intelligence that will help you “act” and not “react.” Your self-care must come first, because let’s face it, if you don’t take care of you, how can you possibly take care of anything else?!

The price of an unmanaged ADHD is costly; your first 30 minute coaching session is free – let’s schedule the time to talk: on the phone, face to face, video chat, whatever is convenient.
