I need help finding someone to help me with ADHD issues in New York City. Specifics (Sodium Acetate Crystalline Structure Details) below.

I have a psychiatrist who I see for medication and I asked him for a referral. He gave me a reference for someone who does talk and psychoanalytic stuff, who does not list ADHD as one of her focus areas on her website. This is not what I am looking for. So, I am turning to you, oh hive mind for help. He asked me to give her a try, but for the reasons below, I kind of don't have that luxury to try out a couple of different people.
When I first moved here I saw a rather good one, but I kind of dropped out of contact (no unpaid bills, but I just never scheduled a follow up one week) with him and feel a little uncomfortable recontacting him now (if this is ok, if things would be ok, please let me know).
I am specifically looking for someone who can help with issues of scheduling and timing, as I am on complete probation at work in terms of lateness. They have pushed back my starting time and part of what I told my boss when when asked what I would do to prevent this in the future was that I would find someone to help me out with this.
Throwaway email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Yes, I see the double meaning there, but I did not when I first created the address.)
(The last CBT shrink post I saw was over a year ago and I can't find anyone talking about a ADHD coach.)
If you can't tell from all of this, I am pretty freaked out. However, I am not looking for advice about how to be on time, (hell, I can probably write some good advice about this), I am looking for someone to help me create a system to maintain good habits.
