I have been where you are right now!
For a long time, I struggled to understand why I couldn't get things done or stay motivated to follow through on tasks and activities that were important to me. Over the years, I sought help from many professionals, books, and loved ones. Still, no matter what advice or strategies I received and tried to implement, I failed repeatedly.
It wasn't until I received my ADHD diagnosis as an adult that it all made sense. I began to understand there wasn't something wrong with me. I wasn't broken! My brain was just wired differently than some. But even with the diagnosis, it wasn't easy. I thought medication would be the game changer. However, I still struggled with executive functioning challenges; often feeling that I was fighting an uphill battle. So, despite my newfound understanding, I still needed new ways to get things done because traditional solutions still didn't work for my ADHD brain.
It took time and perseverance to learn how my brain worked differently and how to leverage my strengths. I spent many years of frustration, tears, and trial and error navigating the common pitfalls of life that plagued my unique thinking process. However, throughout that process, I discovered many unique and effective ways to organize my thoughts, stay focused, manage time, prioritize and initiate tasks, and stay motivated.
I have since transformed my personal and professional experience into a deep passion for helping other neurodiverse people struggling to find their place and reach their full potential. I work very differently with clients because I didn't learn what I know from a book; I lived it! I know what it's like to feel stuck, not good enough, or like you'll never be able to achieve your goals. But I also know overcoming your challenges and living a successful life is not only possible; it's just around the corner waiting for you!
Understanding and embracing my differences allowed me to shift my perspective and path toward my new "normal." Over the years, I have created a toolbox full of new strategies that helped me build and implement my own successful path, and I can't wait to share what I have learned with you!
