“I feel so fortunate to know and work with you.  You have helped me understand my brain, been incredibly patient and held the vision of a clutter-free existence when I see only piles of junk.  Thank you for the ‘gems’ of wisdom you convey about managing ADD and putting systems to work – and the whole package is wrapped in laughter.  I am energized by our sessions.”

Right Brain Dominance and Persistent Organizing Issues

In recent years, there has been a great deal of popular and scientific interest in living with a mind that doesn't naturally organize time, tasks, information and/or possessions very well. If this is your situation, you will have noticed that the commonly available advice is only rarely effective.

Efforts to unlock the mysteries and mechanics of the human brain are complicated by the enormous differences between people. Those with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder, also known as AD/HD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), learning disabilities, sensory overload, right brain dominance or other organizing challenges are so numerous that they are well within the range of normal. Working in all professions, these people are frequently found in the arts, research, sales and people-focused fields. Successful in many ways, they struggle to achieve productive and satisfying days and often either lose track of their life goals or pay too high a price striving for them.

Creating a Successful Strategy

Our times bring breakthroughs in medicine, science and psychotherapy that provide important information and benefits for those struggling with a "different brain." Organizers and coaches work with people living on the edge of these advances. We address in a concrete way the daily, hourly, minute-by-minute obstacles and opportunities inherent in creating a successful strategy to pull the whole together. We can design and set up systems that keep the important pieces from falling through the cracks. The systems that are not universal, but adapted to each individual, work best.

Customizing for the Unique Challenges of ADD

In over three decades of organizing I have learned from the needs, strengths and circumstances of each client and gained knowledge from every discipline that addresses these issues. Since 1990 I have joined with other professional organizers in the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization. We routinely share techniques and solutions to better serve those who are not immediately helped by traditional organizing assistance.

ADD Coaching

Since the mid-1990’s, I have focused my work on Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder through a professional commitment to ADD education and extensive coach training. This dual approach – ADD education and coaching skills -- results in a straightforward partnership of exploration and learning. My clients and I work together to understand their challenges and to identify, strategize with and grow their competence.

Clients need to be willing to engage in this active process of exploration.  Specifically, the work involves holding the big picture and all its details, finding strengths and motivations, co-designing systems and strategies, focus on goals and accomplishments, staying on track while learning from experience, and listening for insights and change. Through this process people with ADD are able shine a light on an accepting, clear and joyful path for themselves -- and to provide themselves and their families, communities and society with the contributions only they can create.
