This Week’s Episode:

Laura Wrzesinski joins me on this episode of ADHD reWired.  Laura is a licensed marriage, and family therapist, who was a member of the most recent ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability Group.  In her private practice, Radical Realness Therapy, she works with LGBTQIA folks, feminists, and ADHD millennials who are ready for self-acceptance and healthy relationships.

Laura was diagnosed with ADHD about two and a half years ago.  In this conversation, you will hear Laura share her ADHD story and her professional background.  Laura is “trauma-informed” and talks about trauma, including EMDR, which is a form of trauma therapy.  Laura was a member of the last ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability Group, and she shares some of her personal experiences from the group and explains how you could benefit from joining our next group.
