Patient Leader

My goal, my mission and passion is to promote ADHD awareness while supporting men and women who are searching for online support for their or a loved one's ADHD. I am passionate about my work because I know first hand (I have ADHD as does one of my children) how appropriate treatment can make one's life change so dramatically. I am an internationally recognized expert in the field of ADHD as a psychotherapist, consultant, writer and coach with a special interest in women with ADHD. I am the author of the award winning book: "The Queen of Distraction." You can find me at my websites at www.ADDconsults.com and www.QueensOfDistraction
