What’s your wish for 2018? If you really want to make it happen, one of my Seattle ADHD groups can help. Get regular doses of inspiration, information, and feedback to keep you on track.

TRACTION groups offer a supportive space in which to better understand your ADHD-related traits and connect with others who are similarly wired. You’ll learn to embrace your strengths, mitigate challenges, and get more of what you want out of life.

Over the past 16 years, hundreds of people have participated in my face-to-face ADHD group classes. With their feedback, I’ve been able to fine-tune a sequence of information and exploration that really gets results.

I feel less defined by and defeated by my ADHD traits. I’m seeing the positive traits that go with the ADHD wiring. (Fall 2016 group participant)

Rather than traditional support groups, these groups have a flexible, collaborative structure in which you can focus on increasing your self-knowledge and practicing strategies. Confidential sharing within each group helps encourage accountability and break down isolation.

This ADHD thing is bigger than I thought – not in a bad way. Now that I’m understanding the big picture of ADHD, I’m much better at creating strategies that work for me where I am. (Fall 2016 group participant)

I’ve been leading groups of adults living with the traits of ADHD for more than 15 years. I am a licensed counselor in the state of Washington, and I received my own diagnosis of ADHD in 1997. I am passionate about sharing cutting edge information about ADHD wiring and helping people with ADHD connect with others in their “tribe.”
