Susan J. Lieber

Certified Organizer Coach, Associate Certified Coach

My dedication to understanding ADHD and empowering young adults and adults living with ADD/ADHD began in 2004 when one of my children was diagnosed. Since that time, I have steadfastly pursued professional development and learning opportunities to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to provide quality services for my clients. Thus, you will be working with an experienced professional who understands the frustrations of living with ADHD. I can support you in developing a personalized approach to overcoming its interference in your life.

So, if you are seeking a down to earth individual, who “gets” what it’s like to live with ADHD and will be your partner in redesigning your process for achieving your goals—give me a call.

Professional partnerships

My appreciation for the collaboration amongst professionals who share a common interest began in my career as a clinician. Since I left the clinic and embarked on the path of entrepreneurship, I have also come to appreciate the value of a professional network that can serve as a resource for opportunities and referrals. I am seeking such a relationship with other professionals who have a particular interest in working with the adult ADHD population. 

If you share these interests, I would welcome the chance to have a conversation with you, either on the phone or better yet in person.
