ADD/ADHD is heavily stigmatized and misunderstood. It’s misunderstood by the general public, by professionals, and even by individuals with ADD/ADHD. Why is that? Simple, the name itself is a misnomer. The two Ds are arguably the biggest culprits.
There is no deficiency of attention, it’s maintaining the attention that’s difficult. ADD/ADHD brains are constantly seeking out something new and interesting, and once they latch onto something they refuse to let go. And the second D, ‘disorder’, is where the worst of the stigma comes in. ADD/ADHD is just as much a disorder as being left-handed is a disorder. It appears that way because this world isn’t set up to accommodate the ADD/ADHD brain, so the way it naturally performs is stifled, leading to poor performance in work, school, and relationships (among many other things).
It doesn’t have to be that way. Since the 1980s I’ve been part of the movement to shift the way we see ADD/ADHD, not as a disorder but what it truly is - a gift. And, when properly managed, it allows individuals to develop potent multitasking skills, vibrant creativity, and a drive for innovation.
I have 40 years of entrepreneurial and corporate experience, including working with American Express, Dartmouth College, Hilton, and Sheraton. As a Business Catalyst, I have developed formalized training systems and communication programs for multiple industries, helping organizations improve productivity and performance.
In a world where social media dominates our communication, it’s time to reconnect with our true selves and form genuine connections with others. I am a Relationship Catalyst, and my mission is to equip you with the tools to develop stronger and more authentic relationships with yourself and those around you.
I have been nurturing my psychic gifts since the age of four and wants to empower others to do the same. Since the late 1970s I have been using a diverse range of expertise, such as psychic readings, mediumship, medical intuition, trance channeling, and past life healing work; to help individuals explore their inner selves, heal from trauma, and develop their spiritual potential as a catalyst.
