A late diagnosis turned her world upside down.

This neurodivergence isn’t just for hyperactive little boys anymore!

    Emily Weinberg: Self-concept & the power of reframing our ADHD

    Emily Weinberg: Self-concept & the power of reframing our ADHD

    Episode 122 with Emily Weinberg.
    “Sometimes we just ramble and talk in circles. I frequently have to stop myself and ask, Did that make any sense?”
    Emily is currently a stay-at-home mom of 2 four-year-olds. She was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021 at the age 36.
    Emily reached out to me and had this to say: “At the start of my diagnosis, while I loved listening to your show, sometimes it would actually make me feel a little worse about my own ADHD. While it's so great to listen to so many successful and inspiring women, I would sometimes think "how are they all doing so well despite all these challenges we both face and I feel like I'm just flailing?" Even some of them who had been diagnosed for just as long or less time than me.”
    Emily wanted to share her perspective, as “the one who is also a bit lost in life, and really trying to get a grip on her symptoms and self-esteem, while taking care of 2 toddlers and trying to figure out what she is doing with the rest of her life. It's really great listening to the women who have already risen and seemingly have it figured out, but sometimes it's also validating listening to the women who don't have it all figured out yet, who are stuck in the muck right with them, but are slowly beginning to find their way out of it.”
    Through her own coach and the coaching program she has been in for 2 years, Emily has learned a tremendous amount about how her own brain works and how to begin embracing it. Coaching not only changed her life in the most impactful way, it also led her to discover her own passion for coaching. She recently began training to become an ADHD coach and she wants to give back to the ADHD community by educating, supporting, and guiding other adults who suspect they have it, or those who are diagnosed and ready to learn more about their ADHD.  
    This has to be one of my favorite interviews I’ve done on this show and I’m sure after you listen, you’ll agree. So if you’re out there and newly diagnosed and feeling like you’ll never get your shit together, I hope you’ll listen to this conversation and find some solace and possibly some inspiration, too. Enjoy!

    Abbie Cardwell: RSD, Morning Pages & being “dialed to 11”

    Abbie Cardwell: RSD, Morning Pages & being “dialed to 11”

    Episode 121 with Abbie Cardwell.
    “I was always told that I was a bit too much. It’s like our volume has been ramped up to 11.”
    Abbie is an accomplished musician living in Byron Bay, Australia. She has won several awards and was also a competitor on Season 1 of Australia’s The Voice.
    In addition to her music, she also owns Abbie’s Alchemy, a gorgeous line of eco-friendly cleaning products. Listeners in Australia can use the code DOPAMINE LOVE for 10% off.
    Abbie & I talk about the experience of rejection sensitive dysphoria as an artist and how that can lead us to hide from the things we love most in life. We also talk about the ritual of Morning Pages (from Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way) and getting out of our own way so we can rediscover our passions. And we discuss how the term “hyperarousal” feels like a better fit than “hyperactivity.”
    Abbie’s song “Underground.”

    Tracy Nolin Beerman: Shiny objects, brain dumps & a vision driven life

    Tracy Nolin Beerman: Shiny objects, brain dumps & a vision driven life

    Episode 120 with Tracy Nolin Beerman.
    “I have a list called the Green Room. It’s where I put all of my thoughts and ideas so they’re safe and don’t keep running through my mind.”
    Tracy is a certified Life Mastery Consultant and host of the Vision Driven Mom with ADHD podcast. She has combined her experience with decades of yoga, meditation, and mind/body work, with life transformation coaching and her own "experiment" with life as an ADHD mom. She helps moms with ADHD declutter their minds and forge an empowered path forward, even if they have a million other things in their brilliant, unique minds. 
    Tracy and I talk about shiny object syndrome and what it means to live a vision driven life, moving toward what you want rather than pushing away from what you don’t want. We also talk about brain dumps and how to shift from overwhelmed to overflowing.
    My interview on Tracy’s podcast.

    Zoe Darazsdi: Mental health stigma & neurodivergent self-advocacy

    Episode 119 with Zoe Darazsdi.
    “Even though I don’t necessarily have the desire to fit in, I think being understood is the greatest feeling on Earth.”
    Zoe is a neurodivergent mental health counselor who specializes in empowering autistic and ADHD clients. She has helped countless teens and adults to navigate the challenges and gifts of living with a unique brain. Her practice is trauma-informed and guided by Adlerian counseling theory and disability rights activism.

    Zoe’s work is supported by her own autistic self-advocacy and the professional research she conducts on autistic peoples’ experiences in counseling. When Zoe is not counseling, she is writing, kickboxing, and playing with her dog, Beezus.

    Priyanka Patel: Medication myths & revamping the diagnostic process

    Episode 118 with Priyanka Patel.

    Megan Dowd: Enneagram, entrepreneurship, and ADHD best practice

    Episode 117 with Megan Dowd.
    “I always listened to music while doing homework. It was like I had to distract one half of my brain so the other half could focus.”

    In addition to her business coaching, she also co-founded Hello, CEO in 2020 to help support neurodiverse entrepreneurs to discover where they can thrive in a business world that isn’t one size fits all.

Game Changer

After being recently diagnosed with ADHD (hyperactive/impulsive) at age 38, this podcast is an absolute game changer. I truly feel my ADHD diagnosis was the missing piece to all my life’s struggles, and I have never felt more validated. For the first time in my life, I don’t feel so incredibly alone.
