ADHD coach/therapist for adult– Feb 28, 2023(2 replies)
My partner has ADHD and would benefit from working with a coach or therapist to better understand the condition, its impact on their life and our relationship, and strategies to handle it. I’m at my wits end and they don’t seem to see that the problem exists. They are very bright and can be stubborn and defensive, so the ideal professional would be experienced with working with that sort of profile. Any recommendations welcome!Feb 28, 2023

Parent Counseling for ADHD impulsive teen– Aug 25, 2022(2 replies)
Has anyone had experience with Whole Child Psychological Services in Walnut Creek (social skills group and/or parent counseling) for a teen with ADHD? They seem great from an initial discussion, but there aren't any reviews on BPN. https://wholechildca.com/
Thanks!Aug 25, 2022
ADHD ‘coach’ for teen– Apr 11, 2022(6 replies)
Our 15 yo daughter was recently diagnosed with ADHD Inattentive Type, mild. Low dose medication has been helpful and she’s starting to take ownership of her diagnosis. Thinking now about a ‘phase 2’ in treatment, wondering if there exists some short-term practical class or coach to help with techniques for school, etc. Kaiser had offered therapy but I’m thinking more practical skills as daughter is fairly confident and adjusted. I bought a teen ADHD book for organization (which still sits unopened) but wondering if someone in-person for just a few sessions could teach skills we have not thought of.
many thanksApr 11, 2022
Coach for Adult ADHD?– Apr 30, 2019(2 replies)
I'm searching for an adult ADHD coach to help me with time management, procrastination, and generally getting work stuff done. Someone who focuses on academic work would probably be fine for me, as my work is largely academic in nature, though help developing strategies for keeping the rest of my life organized would also be useful. I've seen some fairly old promising reviews for Linda Lawton; if you have more recent experience with her I'd love to hear about it. In addition if you know other ADHD coaches in the East Bay who are great (and ideally meet in person, and perhaps do some supervised study sessions), please let me know!Apr 30, 2019
Adult ADHD skills-training and medication management?– Nov 20, 2016(2 replies)
Hello, everyone (first time posting here!). My SO was diagnosed with Adult ADHD a little over a year ago. Since that time, we've experienced various headaches regarding finding skilled counselors/therapists who can offer real help with his condition.
The major priority is finding someone (a therapist, counselor, coach, etc.) who can help with executive-functioning related issues (organization, prioritization, time management, motivation, emotional regulation, etc). Or even some sort of group or class where people receive training in executive-function skills. He'd also benefit from speaking with a doctor or psychiatrist who is knowledgeable regarding medications for ADHD treatment ...someone who has ADHD as a specialty or at least has significant experience with it.
We have Anthem BlueCross insurance, so if anyone could offer a suggestion for a provider who's in-network, this would be immensely appreciated. However, we'd be willing to go out-of-network for anyone who truly knows their stuff.
We live in the East Bay, but there's no real preference for location ...would be up for anyone in Berkeley, Oakland, Emeryville, San Francisco ...or even the South Bay, if necessary. Finding someone who's helpful & skilled is, ultimately, the most important factor here. I just want to ensure he'll finally get the treatment he needs.
Tremendous thanks ahead of time for any guidance or suggestions you're able to provide. It's truly appreciated...Nov 20, 2016
