It’s that time again! Registration is open for all my Seattle ADHD groups through the end of the year.
These groups are a great way to plot the next moves in your life journey. They offer a supportive space for you 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.
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. (Summer 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.
Diagnosed at 5, I thought I knew “it all.” Surprised at how much I didn’t know. Don’s classes really have filled in the gaps in my understanding and as a result, I am moving forward! (Summer 2016 group participant)
See class descriptions and schedules below. Scroll to the bottom for details about registration, costs, and location.
Start here if you’re new to my groups. TRACTIONbasic, previously called Life Strategies 101, will help you gain a deep understanding of what ADHD is and what it isn’t. You’ll have the opportunity to explore your own unique wiring, and you’ll gather and practice strategies for managing your challenges and making the most of your strengths.

I’ve been leading groups for 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.”
