Using ACT to Embrace Your Differences
I lived with my ADHD brain for 49 years without a diagnosis. I have recognized many successes and a lot of failures. I learned to navigate my differences and have a successful, joy filled life using acceptance and commitment therapy.
As an advocate for neurodiversity, I believe in eradicating shame, regret and stereotypes by helping neurodiverse people embrace their differences, realize their strengths, mitigate their weaknesses and find pathways to positive living using their different brains.
Our work includes mindful self-reflection, identification of superpowers (because we have brains that neurotypical people sometimes envy) and how to carry our diagnosis through values-oriented living.
