How does working with an ADHD Consultant work?
- First we schedule a time to talk without distractions, either in persona, over the phone or via Skype, ooVoo or zoom.
- During the conversation we decide if we are a good match and would like to move forward.
- We decide upon a schedule for consulting and a consulting package and payment plan that works best for you.
- Together we develop practical tools and strategies that are specific to the way you learn, think, work and live.
- We look at you as a whole person to ensure that all elements of your health and environment are taken into account so you can function at your best.
- We bring in every support needed to help you manage your ADHD effectively and consistently according to your individual needs.
Don’t waste another day by telling yourself that “one day” you’ll do something to help yourself succeed. Now is the time to learn how to make each day of your life more enjoyable and manageable. Far too often I hear people say, “One day soon I’ll get a handle on ADHD.” Remember, this diagnosis does NOT define you! It’s simply a labael used to describe characteristics that you experience.
ADHD doesn’t go away–it is managed!
When will you put yourself at the top of the priority list–first by understanding yourself and by taking action to do the things you always wanted? You owe it to yourself to get more organized, learn tricks to improve memory, nourish your brain with the right foods, and track your successes and accomplishments.

How does an AHDH Consultant differ from a Therapist?
Both the ADHD consultant and therapist’s goals are to determine what assistance is most appropriate for a client. Both ask many questions and listen and reflect on what is discussed. Both help to empower the client and accept them at whatever level they are and help the client work toward their next highest level. And both place the responsibility on the client to do the work that is developed together.
There must be a commitment toward success from everyone involved!
A therapist usually places a great deal of focus on the client’s past, helping them to understand their feelings, habits, and thoughts that hold them back from achieving their most important goals and aspirations. They work to find out what makes their clients unhealthy mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and physically.
A client is often referred to an ADHD consultant to take the client from where they are at the present time to where they desire to be. We partner together with our their clients to help them consistently move forward, support them in between doctor visits, and help maintain consistent progress forward so new habits are created and old habits fade away.
When I partner with a client, I offers a lot of support, tools and guides that my clients can use toward understanding their personal growth goals. I also help the my clients discover what options and possibilities are available to them, then helps them create strategies (and consequences) that help them move into action.
It has been said that therapy moves a person from dysfunctional to functional and ADHD consulting moves a person from
functional to extraordinary.
A useful analogy is that of a house with a leaky basement. The leaks must be located and repaired and the major water damage cleaned up before the basement can be restored. Restoration must be accomplished before the basement can become a really great rec room. ADHD consulting doesn’t come into play until the last stage of restoration work is behind you. Your consultant helps you design the rec room to be perfect for you lifestyle. And once the rec room is ready, you ready, she/he helps you plan a great celebration!!
There is nothing more gratifying than watching my clients discover many “ah ha” moments. The partnership that forms paves the way to inner strength and understanding that carries them through their lifetime. As that vision becomes clearer, motivation increases, and an inner drive to reach their desired outcomes strengthens. It doesn’t get much better than that.
