It’s Time for Your Adult ADHD Diagnosis to Stop Wreaking Havoc on Your Life

Move Past the Diagnosis and the Label, and Take the Wheel of Your Unique Wiring

It’s Time for Your Adult ADHD Diagnosis to Stop Wreaking Havoc on Your Life

When Your ADHD is out of control, it’s chaos.

  • All the projects and exciting initiatives you took on become an overwhelming pressure cooker of “to-do” that you can’t possibly imagine getting done . . . never mind getting them done to your high standards.Excepteur sint occaecat velit
  • For a second you were on top of everything, feeling great . . . and then BLAM! You’re behind the 8 ball again, spiraling into discouragement, frustration, and the despair of wondering if you’re ever going to be consistent with your energy and performance.
  • You’re a really good person who loves what you do, but when those crashes come, you find yourself being manipulative and even lying or twisting reality just to survive because you’re in way over your head.
  • The people you work with seem to be able to handle the stress of projects going sideways and overwhelming task lists without the emotional turmoil. (The people you work with and live with will thank you for bringing peace to their lives!)
  • You’re living in reaction mode to other people’s projects and demands and rarely getting to create from your own genius or vision.

The truth is the ADHD brain is like a Lamborghini. It’s powerful. It makes connections that others can’t. It’s speedy and attracts tons of admiration.

But . . . that gorgeous Lamborghini can be dangerous if you don’t know how to drive it. 

If you don’t know how to downshift. 

If you’re not familiar with that rear-wheel drive and precision steering, you’re speeding along, exhilarated, then the next thing you know . . . 
You’re in a ditch on the side of the road wondering WTF happened there (and, let’s face it, probably beating yourself up a little bit, too.)

The 1:1 Coaching Method That Puts You Back in the Driver’s Seat of Your Brilliance.

Here’s a Taste of What Life Is Like When We Work Together:

  • You’re no longer bringing home all your stress and anxiety, and instead you’re the present, joyful person your loved ones deserve.
  • You’re more organized, on top of your work, and ahead of the curve than ever before. You’re on time (even early!) and have space to breathe between obligations. You’re working with the unique, changing rhythm of your intelligence and energy.
  • No more getting pulled in 1,000 directions based on the mood and the moment and other people’s needs. You’re able to prioritize your to-do list and stick to it. Consistently. (You’ll even finally have time to execute on your visionary ideas.)
  • You’ll master your influencing skills and get buy-in and enthusiasm during your leadership meetings. No more battling resistance, blank stares, boredom, and wondering why the hell people can’t just “get it” like you do! Goodbye, friction. Hello, visionary team leadership.
  • You’re in total integrity with your work relationships. Nailing the art of dynamic communication means you’re seen as an influential leader who has a talent for bringing out the best in others.

    Within the first couple weeks of our work together, my clients are feeling calm. In control. Seeing massive changes in their relationship to their diagnosis.
Cathy, we need to talk

Client Experience

"Before working with Cathy I was living in reaction to other people's projects, steering other people’s ships and not prioritizing or creating from my own genius or vision! Coaching has helped me recognize the differences between my brain wiring (machine) and the (mind). I have learned about my unique brain and sharing that with my loved ones to understand me better which has been incredible and made life flow easier. This journey has been unbelievably valuable and transformative.

Nice to meet you!

Hi! I’m Cathy Rashidian,

You can choose to transform your ADHD from a weakness into a strength

I know, because I've been there—and I've come out the other side. 

After 20 years in the corporate world, I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD. It was a lightbulb moment.  

Driven by an insatiable hunger for the data, research, and science to help me understand what makes ADHD-ers different, I put in over 600 hours of official training with some of the most respected institutions in executive coaching and ADHD. This is where I embraced my perfectionism and appreciation of excellence to get trained by the best:

I became a certified professional coach in the framework of Energy Leadership through the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). This framework gave me the power to make choices on a minute-to-minute, day-to-day basis that maximized my gifts and minimized my triggers, impulsivity, and reactivity. 

But I still needed to know more about the diagnosis. I enrolled in ADD Coaching Academy (recognized as one of the leading ADHD coach training programs in the world). I studied under the best coaches in the field, and I’m armed with an intimate knowledge of how our diagnosis works, right down to the neurotransmitters that fuel us and then take us down.

All my expertise comes together in my Ready, Set, Choose Method. I love to help my clients tame the ADHD beast, so their brilliance and visionary aptitude can take the lead in their careers and businesses.

I am delighted to be able to bridge the gap between traditional executive coaching and the specific needs of adults with ADHD with over 700 hours of coaching experience. I have had the privilege of working with individuals from companies such as; KPMG, Home Depot, Amazon, Verizon, Cisco, Salesforce, Yahoo, TELUS, and Deloitte. 

Special update  - As of fall of 2022 in addition to running my own coaching practice, I have joined the ADD Coaching Academy Faculty team as a lead Coach Trainer, and Mentor to new ADHD Coaches.
