You can manage unwanted thoughts, emotions, and behaviours; feel less anxious and more able to relax; and gain control of your life. Take the next step toward feeling more calm and confident. Understand how adult ADHD or difficult experiences play a role in your life so you can set goals and practice tools that work best for you. Members of 2SLGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities welcome.
Growth and healing have different stages that we naturally flow back and forth through, not just in one direction. Certain approaches can help more at different stages, so I work with you to recognize where you’re at and support you with the right tools at the right time.
