Adult ADHD

 Adult ADHD is not what people think it is. ADHD is not just about being "hyper" or "spacey" - it is much more than that.  ADHD involves some common core problems, (such as issues with executive functioning (planning, memory, flexibility), and emotion regulation), but also impacts each person individually.

ADHD Coaching

I am trained and licensed as both a Professional Counselor (LPC) and Board Certified Coach (BCC), my latter training was focused becoming an ADHD Coach. ADHD coaching is a collaborative process wherein/whereby we take a nonclinical/nontherapeutic approach to identifying how ADHD manifests in a person’s life, how it is holding us back, and how we can develop strategies to mitigate.  I am a Professional member of premiere organizations such as Children & Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) and the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA).

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. A personal understanding of ADHD is an enlightening source of understanding what it is to live in a hyperlink-enriched world of information. Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and similar media create a highly multifaceted, multidirectional information environment well suited to the ADHD mind.

Please note that I am not a Psychologist, and thus do not perform formal ADHD diagnostic evaluations. Additionally, I am not a Psychiatrist, and thus do not prescribe ADHD (or any other) medications. I am happy to provide referals for those services.
