  • 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 ❤️

  • Podcast Review

    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!

Episode 213: How Testing for Learning Differences Showcases our Unique Strengths with Emily Yudofsky, Co-Founder of Marker Learning

Emily Yudofsky struggled with reading growing up, but luckily her dyslexia was identified at a young age and she was given the proper reading interventions to support her differently-wired brain. Emily knows how different her life would’ve been if her dyslexia had gone undiagnosed, which is what inspired her to co-found her company, Marker Learning. 

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 208: What’s Your Intention for 2023?

For years I used to write out a long list of New Year’s resolutions like I thought I was supposed to, only to not be able to remember what was on the list a week later, let alone where the hell the list even is. So a couple of years ago I started choosing one word and one word only to set the direction for my new year instead, and I discovered that I was capable of setting and sticking to goals in the new year–I just had to start doing it my way. 

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 206: How to Stop the Guilt, Move More and Ditch Imposter Syndrome with Marnie Bothmer

I initially started talking with fitness coach Marnie Bothmer because I told her that I often get pushback from ADHD women around exercise; they know it’s beneficial for the ADHD brain, but they want to know how “real people” are supposed to fit it into their busy lives. Marnie pointed out that the whole concept of what “real people” can do for exercise reveals the root of the problem: the societally-ingrained belief that exercise has to be extreme, and is therefore unattainable.

Episode 205: How Luzia Tschirky, Correspondent at Swiss Public Broadcasting SRF Uses Her ADHD Strengths to Cover the War in Ukraine

Luzia Tschirky was born and raised in the Swiss Mountains in a small town close to the border of Austria and Lichtenstein. As a child, she knew she wanted to become a journalist, so much so that she started her own newspaper at the age of eight and began working for the local newspaper at 14. Now 28, not only is Luzia a professional journalist, she’s the first-ever female correspondent in Moscow, where she covers all post-Soviet countries, including Russia and Ukraine. 

Episode 204: Intermittent Fasting with Gin Stephens

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting, well, intermittently for a few years now and have found that for me personally, it helps me eat intuitively and clears my brain fog. However, I’ve been hesitant to talk about it on the podcast because I know it isn’t a lifestyle that works for everyone, but when a listener recommended author Gin Stephens as a guest I knew that she was the right person to tackle this tricky subject.
