Who I am . . .

Personally, I am a woman living successfully with the challenges and gifts of ADD myself, as well as wife to the LEAST ADD man on the planet (I swear that if you look up Attention Deficit in the dictionary, a picture of him will show up under antonyms!).  I’m also mom to a brilliant and talented young man with ADHD, and the smartest and sweetest teenage girl you could ever meet. I’m also a singer, a writer, a handywoman-toolbelt-diva, and owner/manager of a few rental properties. (Like most of us with ADD, I wear a lot of hats, and I like it that way!)  What I am definitely NOT is a great cook (or even really a good cook), a terrific housekeeper, or a top-notch filer.  But I’m OK with that.  

Professionally, I am a  trained Life Coach, specializing in working with adults with ADD & parents of children with ADHD/ADD. I am a graduate of the ADD Coach Academy, the only comprehensive ADHD Coach training program accredited by the governing body of the coaching profession, the International Coach Federation (ICF). I also run a local support group for parents and adults, and am a CHADD volunteer as well.  Most of all, I’m extremely passionate about helping others with ADHD excavate their hidden potential, and start living their lives like they’re really “firing on all cylinders!”

Where I’ve been . . . 

I always joke that my life is like the ADD Channel, “All ADD, all the time!” but I wouldn’t have it any other way.and certified parenting teacher for the CHADD program, Parent to Parent: Family Training on AD/HD. I run a local support group for adults with ADD and parents of children with ADHD.We are smaller

I grew up in a very close and loving family with three sisters, and lots of ADD! I have been surrounded by it (almost literally!) all my life. I have been happily married for more than 20 years and am the proud mother of two very wonderful and different children, one of whom happens to share my ADD brain wiring. My kids are as different from each other as they could be, ad I love watching them as they are both blossoming into bright, caring, compassionate individuals.

My personal ADD journey really began when I left my previous career to be a stay-at-home Mom to my first-born. Without the external structure and stimulation of a job outside the home, my own ADD characteristics took over. The simple, everyday tasks that it takes to keep a home and family running smoothly were extremely difficult for me to keep up with, consistently. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands: I educated myself on current information about ADD and did the hard work to learn to do things in ways that work with my individual strengths and talents. Eventually, I hired my own coach and became trained myself to help others learn to do the same in their own lives. I do believe it’s what I was put on this earth to do!

What I believe . . .

I believe each person’s ADD is as individual as their finger print. My unique ADD wiring brings out different challenges and strengths in me that are as individual as my personality. I believe the way to live your own, best life is to gain an understanding of who you really are, not to try to be someone or something you are not.

What I do . . .

I work with individuals to help them learn how to work with their strengths and unique characteristics, rather than struggling against them. I help my clients maximize their potential in all areas of life! It’s really about fulfillment–not how much you can cross off your to-do list!  (Although we work to improve that as well!) 

I’m blessed to really love what I do, and I am very passionate about helping the amazing people I am fortunate to work with every day. There is never a dull moment in my line of work, and the individuals with ADHD who I coach are so much fun and really keep things different for me every day. My passion is to educate people about ADHD, and to watch their lives change as they change their perspective on their own ADHD and their abilities.

I can help you live the life you want to live, on your terms, in your unique way.

 

Here is what some of my clients are saying:

"You are nothing short of a MIRACLE. You have gotten me to see even the most impossible situations as challenges I can handle! Boy, a year ago I thought there was very little that I could handle; now I'm ready to change the world!"

I don't know how, but you've changed my entire outlook on life and my abilities.

"Frustration. That's the 'f' word that led me to connect with Lynne. I had never been tested or diagnosed with ADD. But,it was a time in my life when I had enough of not enough and wanted to trust someone to help me and give me tools and strategies to reign in some of the things I was struggling with like: focus, organizing my time and priorities and feeling like I should be/do 'better' (you know what I'm talking about: The Guilt and Shame Game), which are all classic ADD symptoms. I just wanted to understand me and why my brain works the way it does a little better. Lynne helped me with all of those.

Lynne's blog (http://coachingaddvantages.com/blog/) was how I was introduced to her. After reading it, knowing she herself tries to cope with ADD every day and being ready for change, I decided to engage her. The time I spent with her was valuable and insightful. Her style is very peaceful, non-judgmental and caring. I am so glad I made the investment in myself and also got to know Lynne in the process. I use tips and strategies every day that she helped me develop. I would recommend time with Lynne any day. Get out of your head, make the call and take care of you!"

Lynne is friendly, compassionate, patient, understanding, and never judgmental. Not only have I learned a lot from Lynne, but I also enjoy talking and working with her. ... I highly recommend Lynne as an ADHD coach – you will love her!"

MF

"You have been a lifeline for me. You believed in me when I didn't believe in myself."

KC

"Lynne is a dynamic example of both professionalism and personal care for those with whom she works. ... She has both the knowledge and experience of dealing with many of the complicated issues that surround those of us gifted with the ADD/ADHD challenge."
