I help women with ADHD get out of being stuck and overwhelmed, tackle piles and clutter, manage day-to-day life with success, and feel competent, confident, hopeful, and happy.
Read my full bio
I help women with ADHD — women who, like me, can’t figure out how to get dinner on the table every night, whose house is in constant chaos, and who live in chronic overwhelm.
I see women like you who are still struggling, looking for help — a different kind of help. You are searching for connections and to be understood. You’re looking for answers to questions like: Why is this so hard? How do I get to work on time? How do I make a holiday dinner. Women all over the world have been reaching out to me because they know I’ve been there. I live it. I get it…

I can help you…

  • “Terry provides down-to-earth, practical support + strategies. She believes it’s ok to not do things like everyone else. I have her quote: “do something, not because I have to, but because I can,” on my phone to help me each day.”
