  • Podcast Review

    I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for finally validating who I am. I can’t believe it… now I know why I am impulsive. Now I know why no one can match my charisma, or why I am so unorganized! Your podcast pushed me to take the plunge and get an official diagnosis. I am not ashamed or afraid, and that is solely due to this podcast. Thank you so very much, Tracy. I am so very grateful, and in a weird way, you’re my best friend, even if you are not mine ❤️

    This podcast is such a gift to our community of ADHD women! Tracy does a fantastic job of explaining everything we struggle with daily and reframes the story, using your characteristics as strengths! Her personality and humor make the content that much more enjoyable. Who wants to fit in, when we were born to stand out?! I can’t recommend this enough! 💛 Thank you, Tracy, a million times over for all that you do!

  • Podcast Review

    Your podcast has helped me through my discovery and diagnosis of ADHD. I have never felt more validated, supported and empowered by a podcast. Having a positive frame around this diagnosis made such a difference in my mindset.

    I felt so excited to learn about myself and other’s shared experience, and I have a much happier life thanks to your guidance. You truly are changing lives!!

  • Life-changing!

    As a mental health therapist I started listening to this podcast with the intention of better understanding my clients with ADHD - little did I know it would become an integral piece of my own journey to self-understanding and self-acceptance. Since uncovering and acknowledging my own experience of this unique manifestation of neurodivergence, my life has improved significantly. Tracy's podcast strikes a beautiful balance of research-backed information, loads of validation for the lived experience of those with ADHD, practical life strategies, humor and humility.

  • I hadn't felt peace until this podcast

    Tracy, your show is stellar. I found it recently after being diagnosed with ADHD very new into physician assistant school. Truly, if I didn't have this podcast to understand myself and have everything that I'd always felt finally makes sense, I definitely wouldn't have had the strength to continue my program. I'm always checking for new episodes because they truly make me feel I have such unique things to contribute to this world. We all do!

  • ADHD journey

    As I go through this journey of understanding what it's like to be an adult diagnosed with ADHD I am learning to love who I am and what I love most about this podcast is it lets me know there is happiness on the horizon and that I'm not alone. Thank you!

Latest Episodes

Episode 217: Working Through Imposter Syndrome and RSD with Bestselling Author, Emily McKaskle

Emily McKaskle grew up in the 70’s during a time when girls “didn’t have ADHD,” so when she started struggling with reading in the 2nd grade her teacher dismissed her as just not being very bright and left it at that. It wasn’t until she discovered a Harlequin Romance novel at age 11 that her passion for reading, and therefore her reading ability, skyrocketed.

Episode 215: Anxiety, Rumination and Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone with Amanda Feliciano

In my 200th episode I made a callout for someone to come on the podcast who’s been listening for a while, but who doesn’t think they’re accomplished or successful enough to measure up to my other guests. I personally know having interviewed hundreds of ADHD women at this point, that regardless of how much we've done in our life, we still think we haven't done anything. So I challenged our listeners to raise their hand, because every listener resonates differently with every guest and we can learn so much from each other regardless of our age or where we happen to be in life.

Episode 214: From Banker to Baker with Entrepreneur, Emma Dodi

Emma Dodi is the founder of Emma Dodi Cakes in London, a luxury cake and hand-painted macaron business. In true ADHD fashion, Emma’s path hasn’t been a straight one. In a previous life, she was a banker working at top financial companies. Now with four kids, a hands-on husband, and a business of her own that’s creative and dynamic, she couldn’t be happier with where she’s ended up, no matter how unexpected.

Episode 212: How to Make a Sustainable Living From Your Creativity with Miriam Schulman

I always talk about how creative the ADHD mind is, but creativity can only get us so far if we don’t also have structure to make things happen. The problem is, there’s so much advice out there on how to create that structure and monetize creativity, most of which isn’t written for our unique brains, that it’s hard to know where to begin. This is why I invited Miriam Schulman back onto the podcast (go back and listen to her first episode #136 if you haven’t already!) to talk about her recent book, Artpreneur.

Episode 211: How to Live Your Purpose with Municipal Politician and Climate Consultant, Kacy Peterson DeLong

Kacy Peterson DeLong will tell you that she’s had a lot of goofy jobs that sometimes seemed like they were all over the place: librarian, apprentice cabinet maker, artist's live model, soooo much food service, bouncy castle carnival operator, Christmas tree shearer, goat-herder, self-employed science communicator, and fundraiser for kidney disease… you know, the usual ADHD career path. 

Episode 210: CBT, Perfectionism, and Learning to Lean In with Therapist and Author, Kristen Baird-Goldman

Kristen Baird-Goldman is a licensed psychotherapist and ADHD certified clinical specialist with a unique perspective on the intersection of psychology and integrative wellness. Kristen recently released her first book, The CBT Workbook for Adult ADHD, which was inspired by her and her clients’ experiences as adults with ADHD. Reading through the workbook, it’s clear it was created with ADHD brain in mind; it has simple exercises designed to help you examine the most common obstacles that adult ADHDers encounter, followed by mindfulness and CBT-based techniques for navigating those obstacles successfully. 

Episode 209: Emotion, Trauma and ADHD with Dialectical Behavioral Therapist, Vanessa Gorelkin

This episode I'm delighted to re-introduce you to Vanessa Garkin. We talked to Vanessa a few months ago about occupational therapy (go back and listen to Episode 198 if you haven’t already!), and as we were wrapping it up, it became very clear to me that in Vanessa we also had an expert in emotional dysregulation, rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). So, at the end of our conversation I asked Vanessa if she would come back and share her expertise on these topics, and lucky for us, she said yes.

Episode 207: Childhood Trauma with Non-fiction Author Coach, Allison Lane

We know that shame grows in silence, but the thought of actually sharing our traumas and innermost thoughts out loud can feel so scary that many of us end up burying it down deep instead. Allison Lane, a marketer for non-fiction authors and people who should be, tried using this approach with her own childhood trauma; for years she kept everything inside, afraid of making others uncomfortable and unable to face it herself, until a suicide attempt forced her to confront how much pain and shame she had been hiding, and how isolating it was to carry her trauma alone.

Episode 203: Changing the Definition of Success with TedX Speaker Martha Barnard-Rae

Alexis Tomaszewski knew she wanted to be a dentist by the age of 12. When she got to dental school, however, she realized that although she had the clinical and hand skills for dentistry, she struggled with multi-choice tests, which led to her essentially flunking out the first time around. 

Episode 202: ADHD, Imposter Syndrome and Dentistry with Alexis Tomaszewski

Alexis Tomaszewski knew she wanted to be a dentist by the age of 12. When she got to dental school, however, she realized that although she had the clinical and hand skills for dentistry, she struggled with multi-choice tests, which led to her essentially flunking out the first time around.
