  • Are you embarrassed when your child’s school papers never make it back with your signature?

As a Queen of Distraction member, you will learn strategies and get support on:

Having Meals on the Table Every Night
Getting Through Laundry Piles
Keeping Up with Projects and Chores
… and More!

Help Is Here!

Are you sick and tired of the piles, the fire drills, the cereal for dinner, the old food in the car, the late notes, the missed opportunities? I will help you get things done, connect with others who “get it,” and learn new skills.  You’ll finally be in charge of your ADHD. We’ll work together to help you rise above the mess, the frustration, and the roadblocks, and keep you accountable to get things done – as a team- you, me, and your fellow Queens.

Come join me in this unique, supportive group where we can work together in my private online coaching group where you’ll have access to my professional support and expertise, while connecting with other women with ADHD— all in a secret, private, members-only room on Facebook, using text-based communication.

Please note: This exclusive online group takes place on the Queens group Facebook page.  If you are not familiar with Facebook and how it works, it may prove to be more difficult to navigate.  However, we do not want to discourage you from joining in any way.  

Terry does offer one on one consulting,  If you would like to check that out, click here.

  • “Imagine a place where you could be yourself. A place with accountability and support. A place where you don’t have to hide or feel ashamed of your ADHD habits. A place that celebrates the best in you and that helps you deal with the worst. That place is Terry’s Queens of Distraction group! There you’ll find encouragement and understanding, along with needed accountability. It’s nice to not feel so alone with this thing we call ADHD!”

  • “As a mom with ADD, I wanted to let you know that your books, column and website have been a godsend to me. I really appreciate your honesty and candor. You have helped me to see my “differences” in a new light and appreciate the energy and creative spirit of my daughter.”

  • How much worse would it be if I didn’t know what having ADD was like! So I think it’s great that people have someplace to go where they can get the support they need, and remember that we don’t really mean to be difficult.

  • Just discovered your site and was astounded!!! It’s perfect and I for one thank you most sincerely for your profoundly unique and valuable service.

  • I feel like another little bit of me has been unburdened knowing there are others who are so very like me. The relief that comes with that knowledge is wonderful…Anyway, thank you! I’m off to make my very own special to-do list right now!

  • You make me feel better about myself. Thanks for that and here’s to you: Cheers!

  • I just joined Queens of Distraction yesterday. I got to be on the chat last night and I’m not sure I can describe what a nice feeling it was to be chatting with people who..get me and vice versa. I’m looking forward to getting to know you!!! I have been on tele classes, I’ve had coaching but the experience of relatedness and being heard from several people was amazing.

One hour a week to focus on a nagging task that’s been hanging over your head. You pick what’s bugging you most or let me guide you so you don’t get stuck on a wheel-spinning session of indecision. It’s always more fun to work together, so join your fellow Queens and celebrate your accomplishments! We meet from 12 noon – 1pm EST. Are you unavailable during that time?  No worries! Pick an hour, do your task and post your progress. Your fellow Queens will be there to cheer you on and share a celebratory 5 minutes with our royal feet up. 

Thursday Night Chat with Terry

Spend an hour with me and your fellow Queens online, chatting about all things ADHD. There is a new topic every week. Get help when you need it, or benefit yourself and others by offering help. Unplug from the world that doesn’t get it or get you, and connect with a group of women who are just like you and me. We meet from 9pm-10pm EST.  Can’t make the chat?  The text will be there for you to review when it’s convenient for you.
