I’m the parent and spouse of loved ones with ADD/ADHD, I know first hand the frustration, fear and chaos you may be struggling with due to the distraction, disorganization and other behaviors that accompany ADD/ADHD. It’s a very real condition and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. As an experienced ADD/ADHD Coach, I can help you manage the challenges, whether you are parents, a couple, adult or student by co-developing and supporting the solutions that work specifically for you.
A little over 20 years ago, I was first introduced to the idea that something other than willful and intentional bad behavior was driving my then 4 year old son to engage in non-stop talking, to act as if he had a hearing problem, to wait until the very last minute to find the bathroom (sometimes too late), to interrupt conversations, to be a couple of steps behind his peers in following directions, and a host of other frustrating behaviors.
A neighbor mentioned a condition that he’d read about called ADD that affected boys, and even had a book with a single page description of the characteristics.
That single moment turned my life-around, as well as the lives of my son and husband. I was able to begin to see my son in a different light and with that spark, I embarked on a journey of knowledge and help for my son that has evolved into a career as an ADD/ADHD Life Management Coach.
Along the way my husband was also diagnosed with ADHD (in the early ’90’s when adult identification was still just in its infancy stage) which helped to explain a lot of the chaos that we, as parents of one small boy, experienced on a daily basis.
“With the right kind of support, the issues associated with ADD/ADHD can be put into a perspective that includes hope and success, while developing the coping skills to make that a reality.”
Living with ADD/ADHD, whether it’s your diagnosis or that of a loved one or business associate, is full of adventure (you never really know what’s going to happen next), frustration (“why can’t he just do what he says he going to do, on time?”), anger (“why do I have to play Mom to my husband?”), and sometimes sadness (“I guess I just don’t get how hard ADHD is for someone.”)

The success others have experienced working with Linda:
We were seeking help for our college-aged son and appreciated that Linda had professional training as well as in-school and personal experience working with ADD. Our son worked well with Linda on several aspects of ADD: strategies for studying, organizing time and tasks, and expressing and processing the frustrations of learning at a large university. She was able to work with our son on both practical solutions and the broader perspective of understanding and coping with ADD, and some aspects of Asperger’s syndrome. We decided to work with Linda Taylor because friends recommended her. Their daughter had made progress working with her during college.
Mom of college-aged son
I choose to work with Linda because I needed help understanding how ADD impacts my life. I was looking for solutions on how to manage my spending, and discuss work related issues while planning for future work goals. I needed a specialist that understood the unique challenges that I faced because other help professionals in the past had not understood me.
Adult with ADD
To put it simply, Linda is a life-saver. A job-saver. A marriage-saver. She is amazing. If you have ADHD and are struggling in ANY AREA of your life, you need to call Linda. You need to call her to because she can help. She can make things easier. I promise. Rather, Linda can give you the tools to make things easier. You do the work – because you can. Because the ability is within you. She just shows you HOW to do it.
Professional with Adult ADD
Linda is firm but non-judgmental…she really gets it! Linda has a very extensive and current knowledge of ADHD, and a realistic view of how it can be managed. She is very careful to empower me in making decision as opposed to giving advice…which must be tempting at times. Linda has a sharp business acumen that is helpful for clients like me who need guidance for organizing finances.
Professional with Adult ADHD
We (parents) need help too, and there are not that many people out there who really understand ADHD. I find that Linda helps me keep a perspective on my children’s issues, but gives me the encouragement to continue. Linda has helped me keep focused, helped me vent, and brainstorm on ideas for my children. Although it’s difficult to adjust in all the daily responsibilities we have to ensure our (ADHD) children have the correct tools to learn, parents need someone to talk to and I turned to Linda for that support.

Linda helped me understand that I didn’t need fixing, but rather work-arounds that would lead to being more productive and less stressed. Most importantly Linda helped me recognize that accepting my challenges does not mean that I’m surrendering to them. We got very specific about time management issues; how tracking time is critical both to being realistic about the time it takes to complete a project, as well as the passing of time and how to control it to avoid being late. I learned that starting and completing a project is more important than perfection (and much more satisfying), as well as how to monitor my progress to keep me motivated.
