An open letter to potential coaching clients
Glad to hear you want some help with adult ADHD.
Let’s see if we are a good fit.
As you know from my profile, I work primarily with ADHD women who are at midlife and beyond (I call them ADDivas and founded the ADDiva Network to help support them/us). What my profile does NOT say is that I, too, am an ADDiva. I was diagnosed at age 45 and suddenly my life began to make sense.
Oh, so THAT’S the reason I started a dozen different projects but couldn’t quite finish them! Now I know why my desk has piles instead of files (although I am pretty organized, I can’t keep up with all the paper). Now we know why I am late most of the time (could it be because I am trying to do one more thing before I leave or that I can’t find my car keys at the last minute or that I haven’t allowed enough time to get to the appointment???).
I know what it’s like to live the ADD-ish life. And I also know what it’s like to have a coach on my team, someone who understands the challenges, who helps me set realistic goals, encourages me when I stumble and is my best cheerleader.
That’s the kind of coach I love…and the kind of coach I am.
In my coaching, we go deeper than your ADHD — because you are MORE than your ADHD, you are a female or non-binary (or you’re a quite exceptional guy which is just fine, too) getting ready to SOAR! All you need is a little boost. That’s where coaching comes in.
Sure, I have lots of ideas to help deal with ADHD — like labels on EVERYTHING. And setting up a routine to get to sleep before 3 am.
But I offer more than tips and tricks. I create a safe place for you to be exactly Who You Really Are in the world. No pretense. No faking it. You can let down the facade and make mistakes (!) and say goofy things that no one else would understand and talk about your boss who just doesn’t ‘get it’ and laugh at your ADHD story of the day (or hour).
In other words, I help you begin to love yourself – exactly as you are. Not as you WILL be when you finally get the dining table cleaned off or when you finally file your taxes (from two years ago??). And then move toward your own long-buried dreams (how dare you have dreams when your dishes aren’t done?) and begin to live the life you were always meant to live….rich, deep, satisfying.
How can I make that claim? Because I did it. I changed my life 17 years ago and now I love waking up every day (except the mornings after I stayed up ’til 2). It’s truly a magnificent life..and you can have it too. In your very own version.
The world is waiting for you. Your gifts need to be shared. You’ve taken a huge step forward by looking for a coach. Whether we work together or you choose someone else, GO FOR IT. Live your dreams.

Yes but what does it cost?
ADHD coaching prices are all over the place. You can find a newbie coach who charges $75 for a private session and a top level coach who charges $500 or more per session.
The difference is experience and training. Coaching is weird in that anyone – and I mean ANYONE – can decide they are a coach and hang out the proverbial shingle.
That kind of makes me mad. I believe in training and expertise in my professions (used to be writing, advertising, entrepreneurship).
Re:coaching, I trained as a spiritual retreat facilitator, then as a spiritual life coach. I earned certification as a life coach (one year additional training). Then I trained specifically in ADHD coaching with some of the top ADHD coaching experts. With years of experience, I was certified as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) a title earned by only 30% of all professional coaches.
My training continues to this day – I am always learning something new to pass along to my clients.
But what does it COST?
My coaching prices are in the middle of the pack:
Private coaching is available in three or six month packages (6 or 12 private, one-hour sessions) which is $1800 or $3600. No need to pay the entire balance at once. The monthly payments are $600. We schedule at least two sessions per month at your convenience.
Group coaching is less expensive because, it’s a group!
The ADDiva Coaching Spa has 6 women/non-binary max in a group. Spa is a 12-week commitment with monthly payments of $310. The weekly sessions are 90-minutes long.
Which to choose? Obviously we can go deeper, faster with private coaching which is perfect for an intensive dive into the ADHD issues that challenge you.
Group coaching has its own benefits, however. Having weekly contact with other ADDivas is reassuring, validating and incredibly supportive. Plus you get my insight that can help move you forward. The true value is apparent when you consider some Spa groups have been together for a few YEARS.
Often there is waiting list for both private and group coaching (hey, I am pretty good at this after all these years!) but the sooner you get on it, the more quickly we can work together.
