He sets realistic expectations, while encouraging his clients to strive to be 10% better.

Brendan works with individuals, families and institutions who are affected by ADHD. Many of his clients are in a period of transition either at work, school, or in their relationships. Through careful questioning, education, skill building and trouble-shooting, Brendan helps them rebalance the influence ADHD has on them.
The better we understand ADHD and the way it impacts our lives, the more effectively we can manage it. ADHD is driven by a lack of skills, but those skills can be taught and developed. ADHD might still win sometimes, but if we commit to making steady progress, getting 10% better day-to- day and week-to- week, we’ll come out ahead in the long run.
