  • 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!

    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 183: Why ADHD Women Might Struggle More with Imposter Syndrome

Every day I meet amazingly brilliant ADHD women who cannot see their own brilliance. These women may have an impressive list of accomplishments, but because they struggle to keep up with the behind-the-scenes tasks that society tells us are a measurement of our value, all they can focus on are those struggles.

Episode 182: ADHD and Habits with Expert Aggressive Canine Behavior Consultant, Rene Smith

rustrating social behaviors and anxieties crop up as a result of missing out on crucial socialization time. Between the nightmarish vet appointments and the anxiety-fueled barking, my dog is driving me bonkers and I’ve been at a loss for what to do about it.

Episode 181: Meet Tracy's Oh So Clever Podcast Producer, Grace Bourey

We ADHDers are often unfairly labeled as “flaky” in the workplace, but in my experience, if you find the right ADHD person who’s motivated by an interest and investment in the work, there is truly no one better for the job. I believe I’ve found the cream of the ADHD crop in my podcast producer, Grace Bourey, who has reorganized everything for me and put systems in place that keep the podcast running smoothly, leaving me with the mental energy to focus on the work that matters most to me.

Episode 180: Interpersonal Intuition and ADHD 

Of all my ADHD gifts, interpersonal intuition is the one that I consider my ultimate superpower. I’ve always had this ability to walk into a room and know what’s going on without hearing one word, it’s like I can read the energy of everyone around me and determine who’s happy, who’s pretending to be happy, who’s struggling, who cares about others and who doesn’t.

Episode 179: ADHD, Relationships and Sex with Sex Educator, August McLaughlin

At this point in the podcast I’ve covered just about every ADHD topic under the sun, but  one area I’ve always tiptoed around has been sexuality and ADHD; I’ve never been quite sure how to approach it, or whether my listeners even wanted to hear me talk about it for that matter!

Episode 178: NO, it's NOT ADHD! and Other Bullshit Women Hear from Medical Professionals Who Should Know Better

ADHD women have heard every excuse under the sun for why their doctors won’t consider an ADHD diagnosis or take their concerns seriously; everything from the classic “it’s just anxiety,” to “you’re too smart to have ADHD,” to even “you just think it’s cool to have ADHD and that’s why you want a diagnosis.” Seriously, what the hell?!

Episode 177: Medication, Diagnosis and Curating Your Own ADHD Team with Pharmacist and Patient Advocate, Kalin Johnson

There’s nothing quite like the ‘aha’ moment of realizing you have ADHD after a lifetime of trying to understand yourself, but after the initial shock wears off many of us are left wondering: okay, so what comes next? I’m frequently asked how to go about pursuing a diagnosis and finding a team of medical and mental health professionals who actually understand ADHD, which is why I’m so excited to invite Kalin Johnson onto the podcast to answer these questions and more. 

Episode 176: ADHD and Being a Smart Ass in Male-Dominated Fields with Danyell DiLena

I always love talking with ADHD women who are making waves in positions traditionally held by men, so when my guest this episode, Danyell DiLena, mentioned she was kicking ass in not one but two male-dominated fields, I knew I had to have her on to share her story.

Episode 175: ADHD and How to Take an RSD Moment and Turn it Into Opportunity with Leslie Robbins

Those of us with ADHD brains know that no matter how vigilant we are, slip-ups are bound to happen, especially when sleep deprivation is thrown into the mix. We can only do so much to prevent mistakes, but what we can control is how we choose to react to them. This episode I’m joined by ADHD coach and reformed people-pleaser, Leslie Robbins, who took an embarrasing ADHD moment and turned it into a brilliant teaching opportunity.

Episode 174: ADHD and Gratitude with Catheryn Wreford-Holden

Since starting this podcast, I’ve been able to help thousands of ADHD women around the world discover their true selves and lean into their strengths. None of this would be possible, however, without the ADHD for Smart Ass Women Facebook group–the place where it all began–and the help of Catheryn Wreford-Holden, our lead Facebook group administrator. What makes our group different is the seventeen moderators who approve all posts.
