Our Coaching Vision:
Bring harmony and purpose to families struggling with ADHD so our unique abilities can shine
Our answers lie within - sometimes we just need a little help to find them
There is no "cure all", because we aren't broken. We're just distracted, overwhelmed, unsupported, and stressed out. Sometimes, having an outside, supportive person focused on helping us find our answers within is the only way to make progress.
Stephanie Marcusky is a wife and mother of two children, both diagnosed with ADHD. She herself was diagnosed at 43 with ADHD, although she was unofficially diagnosed earlier, and afraid of what it meant.
ADHD seemed like a dreadful diagnosis; a failure of parenting her children and lack of learning to be an adult herself, all at the same time. But ignoring the diagnosis was worse – it kept her from learning the strategies and systems that could help her overcome the negative aspects of ADHD.
She has a Bachelors in Construction from the University of Florida, and an MBA from the University of Southern Mississippi, but she cycled through multiple jobs, even before having children. Having 2 kids in less than 5 years seemed to make the chaos worse. After losing a really special job created just for her, she finally got tested and diagnosed for ADHD. But even that wasn’t quite enough to make things click.
Psychiatrists were really expensive, therapy wasn’t changing things quickly enough, and traditional coaching with someone inexperienced in ADHD left her feeling like she was spinning her wheels. Looking specifically for coaching for people with ADHD, she found Laurie Dupar’s International ADHD Coach Training Center and set out to become her own coach, and teach others how to overcome the problems ADHD creates by focusing on the strengths ADHD can reveal.

HOW TO AVOID BURNOUT & ENVISION A BRIGHTER FUTURE
As mothers and/or wives, we tend to take on more of the emotional work that knits the family together. Add our work both inside and outside the home to the demands of keeping it all together, and so many of us are stressed out and at the end of our ropes.
But this is not to lessen the work that men do. The single fathers, the men who share equal duty, the men who are there for partners who are physically or mentally ill, deserve to hear this, too:
Self-care is not just bubble baths and spa dates. Self-care is basic actions to put our emotional and physical well-being first so that we can be emotionally and physically available for our family members.
Drink the water, even if you need to add a little flavor to it; take a longer shower to clear your head; take a quiet moment to create a little more mindfulness in your day. And figure out what your Core Values are so you can start to live from them, for yourself and for your family.
Let's work together to discover your Core Values, unmet Yearnings, and Strengths, and envision an incandescent vision of the Future you want for yourself and your family and the steps to make it happen.
