Introducing FOCUSED
THE coaching program for adults with ADHD

Some programs will teach you that ADHD is your superpower.
This is not that kind of program.

Some coaches will promise to hold you accountable.
Newsflash: accountability is an inside job.

Some programs will shame you if you’re not consistent.
Please excuse me while I roll my eyes.

FOCUSED is the place where you will discover your actual superpowers without buying into the myth of toxic positivity.

Through regular coaching calls and bingeable courses, you will learn to hold yourself accountable in a loving but firm way.

Kristen Carder - I Have ADHD

And, my friend, you will do this inconsistently.

That’s right. You’ve got ADHD.

You’re not going to be consistent, and that’s perfectly ok.

FOCUSED is a no-judgment zone that allows you to persistently grow and make huge improvements in your life alongside other ADHD adults who struggle just like you.

What will I learn?

In FOCUSED, you’ll learn to:

Understand the ins and outs of ADHD and how to manage it.
Accept yourself as you are. Yes, it’s possible.
Identify and overcome your own blind spots.
Manage your explosive emotions.
Interrupt the cycles of procrastination and perfectionism.
Become a better (and faster) decision maker.
Say no to what you don’t want, and yes to what you do want.

Members are lovingly walked through a journey of self-acceptance, understanding their ADHD, and managing their time and energy.

You’ll be taught how to be productive, how to stop procrastinating, and how to recognize and stop the insidious cycle of self-sabotage.

Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?


Yeah, but is it for me?


You have ADHD (self-diagnosed welcome)

You’re a kind and open human

You like a balance between expert support and being self-led

You can function in your day-to-day but still struggle with perfectionism, procrastination, time-management, emotional regulation, and you have trouble setting and reaching goals

You seem to always be taking two steps forward and three steps back (just like Paula Abdul, but not quite as fun)

FOCUSED is a go-at-your-own-pace program which allows you to show up as the messy, imperfect person that you are, AND still make amazing changes in your life.

Created by an ADHDer (me) for ADHDers (you), FOCUSED isn’t boring, it isn’t overwhelming, and it isn’t something you have to be consistent with in order to be successful.

Once inside FOCUSED you will get:

Bingeable Courses

You’ll have access to 4 courses immediately. Each course comes with a PDF workbook and several classes taught by Kristen.

Live Coaching Calls

Natalie Chien

Stopped burning out:

"I was someone who would have sacrificed my physical and mental health for my family/friends and didn’t know or feel comfortable setting boundaries. I now know my worth and I have a clear self concept and setting boundaries is becoming easier." Natalie Chien

Mark Rovner

Learned to navigate a neurotypical world:

"Kristen Carder is a masterful coach and she knows her audience. As a coach myself and as an ADHDer, I benefit twice from being part of Focused. I benefit from Kristen’s wisdom, humor and powerful insight into how to navigate a neurotypical world. And, watching her coach is upping my own coaching game as well." Mark Rovner

Amber Mirko

Ditched perfectionism:

"I’ve seen a major transformation in my life since joining FOCUSED. I have become so much more gentle with myself, I feel that I have a community that understands me and walks with me through the individual struggles of ADHD. I don’t “should” myself as much and tend to accept my moods and am more resilient because I have learned that persistence is more important than consistency." Amber Mirko

Why Group Coaching?

Many people believe they want my 1:1 support. Maybe that’s you.

Psychologists say that for most ADHDers, group coaching is more transformative than 1:1 coaching.

In his book, Delivered from Distraction, renowned ADHD psychologist Dr. Ned Hallowell says, “The best program must include some means of developing connectedness and group support so that the person never feels alone.


Most people who have ADHD share secret feelings of unworthiness, shame, and a fatalistic, nihilistic, foreboding that leads them to withdraw from others when they’re in distress. Some kind of group program offers the best antidote to these toxic feelings.”
**Hallowell, Edward and John Ratey. Delivered from Distraction. Ballantine Books, 2017. Page 162.

 FOCUSED is the one place where ADHDers can be on a self-development journey while still finding commonality, camaraderie, and community within a group.


Many members feel true acceptance for the first time, and this comes as a great relief after decades of navigating rejection.
