Helping you find the joy in ADHD living and parenting

“Don’t talk to me about joy in ADHD, I’m just hanging on!”
Hey. I hear you. ADHD can be a lot. Parenting ADHD kids can be a lot. You may be feeling overwhelmed, confused or defeated by ADHD. But I promise, you are in the right place! You deserve to find a way not just to cope but to live joyful with your ADHD. And you deserve to feel like you are parenting your ADHD kiddo in a way that brings you both joy and happiness too.


Hello and welcome

I’m Sarah.

Hi! My name is Sarah Stokely. I help adults with ADHD and parents of ADHD kiddos find their way towards a happier life.

I’m an educator, writer and coach with a background in Psychology and Counselling. I worked with kids and families for years, especially kids with a lot of complexity in their lives, like trauma, family separation and neurodivergence. But even with all that professional knowledge, my life was flipped upside down a few years ago when I got my own ADHD diagnosis. That was when I really got it with my whole heart, not just my head!
I started Affirming ADHD to support others like me who discovered their ADHD in adulthood, or are raising ADHD and neurodivergent kiddos. Because all of us – especially our kids – deserve to know what it feels like to be affirmed, instead of shut down, for the ADHD bright sparks we are. Please get in touch, I can’t wait to meet you!
