  • "This course gave my husband and me the breakthrough we so desperately needed.

  • "Thank you again for such a life-changing seminar. It was the best and most effective money and time we ever spent."

  • "You have given us hope and a direction. I am forever grateful to your wisdom, and ability to even handedly deliver your message. My ADHD husband has felt like the bad guy for so long but you managed to get him to sit still and look at himself without judgment. That’s pretty amazing!!!"

  • "Your class has brought a bright ray of hope to our marriage."

  • "Melissa is very good at addressing both spouses and their issues and offers practical and easy to implement ideas that really do turn things around during the Seminar. The question and answer time at the end of each session helps a lot also. I highly recommend this course for any couples who are struggling in an ADHD marriage relationship. Thank you so much, Melissa, for your time and effort to help others."

  • "I felt this course was a guidepost each week. Sometimes I really feel lost in the dark with dealing with my spouse's untreated ADHD and this course was a way to navigate through some of the difficult-to-talk-about details."

  • "Your course literally saved our marriage. It has turned it around and given us new tools and perspectives that no marriage counselor has been able to give to us. It is still tough but in a manageable sense. I have finally stopped being co-dependent and parenting and my personal life is much more fulfilling and less stressed. Our kids will now not have to be kids of divorced parents as I was truly at my wits end when I found your site. Thank you!"
