As an ADHD specialist, I am here to help adults and adolescents alike who may have or have ADD/ADHD to:
1) better understand, manage, and celebrate their ADD/ADHD,
2) experience the great benefits I found in knowing all I can about ADD/ADHD,
3) minimizing the negative impact of the side effects.
Word as a father...
I am a proud ADHD-father of two adult sons. One has ADD and the other ADHD. I can speak about ADHD as a therapist/coach as well as a father. Like many parents I want to be able to educate my sons and people around me about ADHD. This is why I have educated myself around ADD/ADHD. As a expert ADD therapist and coach, I have helped thousands to better understand, manage, and celebrate their ADD/ADHD.

Original, charismatic, energetic, often brilliant, people with ADD/ADHD have extraordinary talents and gifts embedded in their highly active but easily distracted minds. In my opinion, "ADD/ADHD is a gift with disabling side effects" - not a disorder. When it is managed properly, it can become a huge asset in one’s life. Both I and many people have the gift.
As I like to describe it, ADD/ADHD is like having a silent or loud race car with:
ADHD is now recognized as being lifelong and is most commonly identified in school aged children but that carries on throughout adolescence and into adulthood for many people. Read about the history of ADHD.
Prior to finding out that I have ADHD, I found myself in the grip of depression, anxiety, marital problems, social fears and low self-esteem - that made no sense to me...
