Sari Solden, MS LMFT

Psychotherapist, Author

For coaches, mental health professionals, adults with ADHD, and their partners

What is often missing in the approach to helping adults with ADHD is the critical element of going beyond a focus on deficits and strategies to the goal of restoring lost hopes and dreams, creating a meaningful life, and moving beyond toxic comparisons to value one’s differences.

In order to help an adult with the challenges of ADHD attain this self view and the ability to move forward toward the life they want, the professional must be able to see the them in a whole and valuing way. Otherwise, even the best strategies will fall flat and become just one more way the adult with ADHD winds up feeling more defeated, deflated, and demoralized.
