  • Can I participate if I am medicated or see a therapist?
    Absolutely! We encourage you to discuss your interest in participating in our program with your therapist. Given that ADHD is classified as a Neurodevelopmental Disorder rather than a Mental Health or Mood Disorder, our approach distinctly complements traditional psychotherapy. By integrating our strategies with your ongoing therapy, you can amplify your journey toward personal growth and development. Our team is well-versed in advocating for appropriate accommodations and leveraging specialized technology to enhance accessibility. Our program is often heralded as a valuable supplementary treatment, with numerous studies highlighting its potential to significantly boost life satisfaction, career achievements, and academic performance. Moreover, we are proud to introduce an innovative adjunct to our coaching services - the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), a music therapy modality grounded in sound's therapeutic power to strengthen the inner ear's muscles and regulate physiological states noninvasively. This method not only augments the effectiveness of coaching and therapy sessions but also promotes lasting skill retention. Originating from the insightful work of Polyvagal Theory's creator, Dr. Stephen Porges, the SSP enriches our holistic approach to well-being. A fascinating note: FLORAMENTE's founder has dedicated over a decade to exploring Somatic and Polyvagal Research, receiving direct mentorship from luminaries such as Dr. Peter Levine and Dr. Stephen Porges. To explore how our program can synergize with your existing treatment plan, please get in touch. We're here to discuss the potential for a collaborative approach tailored to your unique needs.
  • Do I have to have ADHD, ADD or ASD to schedule?
    Certainly not. Our services extend beyond those formally diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, APD, or ASD. If you find yourself grappling with traits often associated with these conditions, or if you're seeking ways to enhance your efficiency, organizational skills, motivation, and to cultivate a supportive environment tailored to your needs, we invite you to connect with us. Our program is designed to foster personal growth and improvement, irrespective of a formal diagnosis, offering tools and strategies to help you thrive.
  • ​How do I know if I am a good candidate for your services?
    Determining whether you are an ideal candidate for our services hinges on various personal and professional challenges you might be facing. Whether it's the rush to meet deadlines, difficulties in goal attainment, challenges in organization, aspirations to enhance financial management, social skills improvement, or navigating the effects of ADHD on relationships or parenting—our specialists are equipped to provide the support you need. Our commitment is to support individuals we believe will most benefit from our services. If our program does not align perfectly with your needs, we are dedicated to guiding you in developing a strategic plan to seek alternative solutions or resources that better suit your circumstances. It is important to underscore that a formal diagnosis or medication is not prerequisites for our support. Our aim is to offer assistance that is accessible and impactful, tailored to the unique aspects of your situation.
  • ​What is a Performance Coach and how can one help me?
    At the core of our coaching philosophy lies a profound understanding that there’s more to coaching than meets the eye. Our Performance Coaches aren't just experts in their field; they are life-changers who resonate deeply with the values and aspirations of our clients. Specializing in navigating the complexities of ADHD and/or ASD, our Performance Coaches are seasoned professionals dedicated to enhancing your skill sets and ensuring peak performance. They embody trust, respect, and an unwavering belief in the transformative potential within each individual. Through attentive listening, constructive challenges, and the application of scientifically backed developmental techniques, they guide you toward daily victories and breakthrough achievements. The truth is, nearly everyone stands to gain from the personalized guidance of a Performance Coach. Despite often knowing what it takes to succeed, there's a chasm between knowledge and action that many of us find difficult to bridge. Initiatives like starting a new fitness regime, mastering a new skill, completing pending projects, or improving relationships may begin with enthusiasm but frequently encounter obstacles—procrastination, overwhelm, and self-sabotage, to name a few. In an age where we’re bombarded with contradictory advice and overwhelmed by information overload, discerning the right course of action is no small feat. The reality is, without the proper support, even the most well-intentioned plans can falter, leaving self-help efforts as fleeting attempts rather than lasting transformations. Success, in any endeavor, is a systematic process that demands not just knowledge and skill, but also the mastery and social support to bring one's efforts to fruition. This is where the true value of a Performance Coach shines—providing the educated support necessary to keep you motivated, organized, informed, and accountable. In partnering with a Performance Coach, you gain more than just an ally; you gain a strategist, a motivator, and a supporter equipped to help you navigate life’s complexities and achieve your highest potential.
  • What is Mental Health First Aid?
    Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) stands as a nationally recognized, skills-based training program designed to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills to identify, understand, and effectively respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. While MHFA practitioners are adept at recognizing potential mental health challenges, their role does not extend to clinical diagnoses, treatment, or medication prescriptions for mental health conditions. Instead, they act as pivotal connectors to appropriate professional care, ensuring confidentiality unless explicit consent is given for information sharing. MHFA offers a pathway, not just to diagnosis, but to understanding and navigating mental health with an informed and supportive approach.
  • How did ADHD Coaching Start?
    Originating in 1995, the concept of ADHD Coaching was propelled into the spotlight through an article that illuminated its potential as a complementary strategy in ADHD treatment. Driven by Dr. Hallowell’s clinical insights and his frustration with the limitations of conventional treatment in providing comprehensive support, ADHD Coaching emerged as a solution to the pervasive challenges faced by individuals with ADHD. This innovative coaching model focuses on skill training, guidance, accountability, and treatment supplementation, addressing the common discrepancy between knowing what to do and actual implementation for those with ADHD.
  • What is Trauma-Informed Care?
    Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is a specialized approach that acknowledges and understands the prevalence and impact of trauma on an individual's life without aiming to diagnose. Certified TIC specialists are trained to recognize trauma symptoms and create supportive environments that cater to the needs of those who have experienced trauma. While TIC does not replace the care provided by doctors or psychiatrists, it plays a crucial role in offering supportive services that are sensitive to trauma history, embodying a philosophy that assumes a high likelihood of trauma in individuals. Certification in TIC involves comprehensive education and examination, underscoring its significance in fostering a compassionate and understanding care framework.
  • Why should I consider virtual support service options?
    Virtual support services have been shown to enhance skill development and application, offering flexibility, discretion, and the convenience of integrating sessions into daily routines without the need for physical office visits. This approach not only helps in overcoming logistical challenges but also introduces a level of accessibility and adaptability unmatched by traditional methods, particularly beneficial for those managing time-sensitive responsibilities or seeking discreet support options.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    Currently, our services do not directly accept insurance. However, various strategies can be employed to manage expenses, including utilizing Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) for healthcare costs not covered by insurance, employer sponsorship, physician recommendations for coaching, and tax deductions for self-employed individuals. Investing in ADHD support transcends monetary value, potentially saving individuals from the "ADHD Tax" associated with common financial pitfalls due to symptoms of ADHD.
  • Do you offer discounts?
    We are committed to making our support accessible through several avenues: discounted package plans for extended engagement, referral discounts, and special scholarship options for students. These initiatives are designed to ensure that support is attainable, fostering a community where progress and development are within reach for everyone.
  • What is your refund policy?
    Our refund policy is tailored to individual circumstances, emphasizing the value and commitment involved in participating in our programs. With a focus on fairness and respect for the resources provided, we assess refund requests on a case-by-case basis, ensuring that our policies reflect our dedication to the success and satisfaction of our clients.
  • I've booked a session, now what?
    Upon booking a session, you will receive detailed information, including an invoice, session link, and essential forms to complete beforehand. Email reminders will ensure you are well-prepared for your appointment, facilitating a seamless connection to your session and paving the way for a productive and enriching experience.
  • Feeling nervous or unsure?
    Feeling apprehensive about starting as a "complicated" client is natural. Yet, it’s important to remember that your path to success is a shared journey. Our belief in your potential is unwavering, and our commitment to supporting you through the complexities of life is steadfast. Together, we navigate the challenges, transforming apprehension into achievement.
