"ADHD is powerful. Roya taught my wife and I how not to be powerless and helpless. She introduced practical and concrete tools for working WITH the ADHD as a couple and as a family. This morning I became overwhelmed by whining kids. I got angry at my wife. We both got upset. Then, We both realized what was happening. My ADHD had us in the same old dance. Something powerful happened. I took a deep breath, asked for some space, went in the other room. My wife supported my need for space. After I calmed down I apologized to my wife and kids for my role. My wife also apologized for her role. I told them I loved them and thanked them for their patience. And the day went on and my wife and I laughed at the ADHD. Our work with Roya has changed our lives. We are empowered and educated. Most importantly Roya makes it clear that the credit for our progress is not so much about her role, as it is about our willingness to "do things differently." My wife and I feel ownership for our progress independent of the skills and knowledge Roya has shared. She helped us realize that as powerful as ADHD can be, it can't touch the power of our love when we are truly committed to living a meaningful life together. Thank you Roya." - C.O.
