This special brand of parenthood is hard. I get it.

I really, REALLY get it.


There is quite a learning curve to parenting a child with ADHD and/or autism. When my son was initially diagnosed with ADHD in 2008, the doctor gave me a few fact sheets and a label. That was it.

I had to learn how to effectively navigate this special parenthood on my own, and it took more than two years to even start to get the hang of it.

My mission is to change that for you.

Stop the Chaos

Does this look familiar? Are you drowning in books and articles, desperate to learn how to truly help your child with ADHD and/or autism? I bet you still feel like you’re spinning your wheels. I know I did. For more than two LONG years.

I can help you stop this madness. I already did all of this research — and most the trial by fire. Now I’m mentoring and coaching parents so you don’t have to struggle to figure it all out anymore.

There’s a considerable amount of research that shows that ADHD parent training not only improves ADHD symptoms and behavior, but it also reduces parent stress and increases parent self-confidence. Learning strategies specific to effectively manage ADHD is one of the key ingredients to successful and happy kids, and happy families.

Tell Me How I Can Help You


“My child was just diagnosed and I don’t know where to start. I’m overwhelmed — life is chaotic and stressful. I need direction on the right path.”

“We’ve had a diagnosis for a while, but I feel like I’m spinning my wheels. I need a roadmap for this special parenthood, so my child can succeed.”

“We’re doing okay, but I know we could do better. I need someone to guide me and keep me on track, so we can struggle less and triumph more.”


“When my son was diagnosed with ADHD, my world was rocked. I felt confused, lost, angry, and sad. I picked up your book, Boy Without Instructions, and I couldn’t put it down! You are real and practical, and seemed to know the thoughts in my head! The book led me to your online course, The Complete Guide to Parenting ADHD. I would still be lost and confused without the extensive knowledge and support I’ve received from the course.

I kid you not, my husband and I would be lost without you. You’ve changed our lives.”

— Sarah Stein, Mom of a Child with ADHD

“I’ve learned so much from your books! Your ‘voice’ calms a mother’s soul down, and gives moms a minute to see the bigger picture. You helped me to calm down, hover over my son less, and look at parenthood from a new perspective.”

— LisaRenee Fogarty, Mom of a School-Aged Son with ADHD
