Having ADD or ADHD is a gift, not a curse. Hear from people all around the globe, from every walk of life, in every profession, from Rock Stars to CEOs, from Teachers to Politicians, who have learned how to unlock the gifts of their ADD and ADHD diagnosis, and use it to their personal and professional advantage, to build businesses, become millionaires, or simply better their lives. Todays’ guest is Dr. Jessica McCarthy. As a clinical neuropsychologist, clinical psychologist, and certified school psychologist, Dr. McCarthy provides evidence-based neuropsychological assessment and cognitive-behavioral therapy across the lifespan. Approachable, relatable, and with a sharp sense of humor, Dr. McCarthy has a positive demeanor and quickly puts you at ease with her engaging, refreshing style, and no-nonsense but compassionate approach that holds clients accountable for working toward values-driven change. We’re happy to be talking with her today about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
