I discovered my ADHD in 2006 when I was working on my doctorate. The diagnosis helped explain so many of my challenges and behavior patterns. But it also reinforced my sense of being inadequate. Now, 10 years later, I love my brain and my life! Whether you have ADHD tendencies or see yourself as an unusually “divergent” thinker, I have a fantastic set of methods and tools for your consideration.
I work with students, parents and educators who want to better understand and love using your divergent minds. Together we explore your options and how to navigate your path forward in school and life. What challenges could you use some help with? Where are you getting stuck?
