Help me navigate coaching for adult ADD
February 28, 2017 8:52 PM   Subscribe

My therapist recently suggested I try getting an ADD coach to help with my chronic procrastination issues. Looking for general tips on navigating the process and/or specific recommendations for coaches (either in the Seattle area or available to coach remotely via phone/Skype/whatever.)

Since I am already seeing a psychiatrist and therapist for depression/anxiety, I don't need someone who can prescribe medication or anything like that--just someone who can prod me into learning some better coping skills. I talked to someone from Expert ADHD Coaching, which seems like a plausible option, but the whole operation has kind of an off-putting infomercial vibe to it and I'd like to explore alternatives.

Coach Viv - I know her socially so I can't say anything about her coaching services, but she is a joyful and compassionate person.

The therapist finder tool on psychology today is usually a good resource, and you can cross-reference with Yelp.

I attended a training by MaryDee Sklar and found it quite useful for me personally and in my work with clients.

Don Baker's ADHD support groups (and individual counseling/coaching sessions) were super helpful for me shortly after being diagnosed. He tends to draw from a lot of sources and made me aware of a lot of resources for figuring out solutions that worked for me; also he's right here in Seattle off Westlake.

I didn't think group sessions would be my thing, but it was great hearing things from other people's perspectives who were in the same boat as I was.
