๐Ÿ† Overlooked strengths
๐ŸŽข Intense feels
๐ŸŽญ Multiple passions + vocations
๐ŸŒช All the ideas all the time
๐Ÿ”ฅ Consistent inconsistency
โ˜” Overwhelm + burnout
๐ŸŽฏ I coach adults plagued by the curse of ๐Ÿ”ฎ high potential and ๐Ÿšง inconsistent follow-through, especially those labeled twice-exceptional/gifted early in life or whose ADHD traits went unrecognized for other reasons such as gender, upbringing, race etc.About half of my clients are part of the Late Diagnosis Club (or suspect they might be), and work with me to:๐Ÿ’ฌ self-advocate for no-stigma ADHD support๐Ÿงญ navigate the pre/post-diagnosis logistical โ€œwalls of awfulโ€ and emotional rollercoaster๐Ÿ”ฅ build a shame-free life based on strengths not regrets

Premium micro-group coaching experiences for brilliant ADHD professionals who have been successful but at great cost: burnout, shame, low self-confidence.9 sessions including a 1:1 coaching session;
private Slack community;
