I Believe

You’d be surprised at what you shouldn’t believe about ADHD. Having an ADHD brain-type may feel like a sentence to a lifetime of frustration, self-doubt and diminished returns. This simply isn’t true. In fact, there is great potential for people with ADHD to avoid unwanted behaviors and apply the gifts of their Innovator Brain Type.

Carol is an expert in the type of complex coaching that is needed for couples and families struggling with ADHD-related issues.

Common issues faced by families with ADHD include broken communication patterns, inconsistent routines, and an imbalance between partners in terms of responsibility and emotional availability.

We create plans tailored to each person involved, and through extensive self-evaluation, communication practice, and interactive sessions, Carol brings everyone to a new level of awareness. Whether you are a couple or an entire family, each person’s needs are accommodated so that the entire family can move on to a healthier dynamic together. Clients can expect immediate results on the path to long-term change.
