DEVELOP NEW SKILLS & THRIVE WITH ADHD

If you or your child struggles with time management, organization, prioritizing projects or tasks and negative thinking, then you have come to the right place. Allison Tyler, author and a licensed clinical social worker with over 17 years experience, believes that all individuals with ADHD can learn new skills and strategies to not only help them to live but to thrive in our neurodiverse world. Using a blend of motivational, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness techniques, I teach specific approaches and strategies to help strengthen executive function skills.
