An open letter to those who have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, PDD-NOS, OCD, ODD, CD or Bipolar, and their families who love them:

From: Chana Klein

adhd person I don't have to tell you what it's like to live with ADHD, and ASD and the co-existing conditions that come with those brain wirings for either yourself or your family member.

What I can tell you is that there is a better way to cope than your current methods.

Maybe you believe that what you truly want in your heart of hearts is a far off dream, but the reality is that success and fulfillment can be yours.

In fact, my clients develop success stories of their own.

They develop successful businesses, have more fulfilling relationships, accomplish academic goals, overcome the perception that they cannot accomplish what they want, and overall feel better about who they are and what they do.

And all of this is a result of many unique strategies and the coaching relationship...

As a pioneer in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD Coaching I have extensive experience working with people who are challenged, and/or frustrated with their ongoing situation, or are currently in crisis.

My perspective is a bit different from that of many other professionals. For example, I see people who have ASD as having more sensitivity rather than less, better hearing, not worse, and often greater intuition, rather than no theory of mind. It is often the super-sensitivities that make life overwhelming.

I see Families with people on the Spectrum (ASD & ADHD) as worthy of more respect, not less, and I am truly inspired by the families with whom I work.

She found what is great in me. She found my greatness and supported me in reaching it.

Let Me Help You Uncover Your Unique Gifts

adhd person

While some practitioners focus exclusively on the client, I work with the entire family, because this dynamic is so critical to your overall success.

The brain wirings you are encountering are often a gift in many ways. We'll work together to uncover these gifts, harness them and use them to have meaningful, previously unreachable outcomes.

I use many modalities and have many certifications and trainings that help me to help my clients. I have also created strategies of my own. I integrate alternative healing with coaching when indicated. Call me to partner with you to get the results that you were not able to achieve before, to go beyond what you and everyone else thought was realizable.

Partner with me to uncover your brilliance...

In fact, many of my colleagues and other professionals refer clients to me who they feel have issues that are more complex and who they feel will benefit from my trainings and my skills as a coach and a healer. Working with individuals who are stuck in any area of their lives is my passion.
