Queer ADHD is a new ADHD coaching practice with services provided by Sarah Dopp. Our goal is to address the growing need for ADHD support in the queer, nonbinary, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and asexual communities—along with the rest of our alphabet identities. Our practice is starting small, and we’ll ramp up services throughout 2021.
How can we help? Tell us!
Are you a queer person with ADHD? Are you looking for coaching? Support groups? Free tips you can implement yourself? Educational articles about your brain? Accountability buddies? Connection with our community? A way to share your experience with others?
Please share your hopes with us through our 5-minute community interest survey. Your answers will help inform our efforts as we design our offerings. We’d also love to know how you’d like to stay involved.
About the Coach
Hi, I’m Sarah Dopp! My pronouns are she/her, and I’m in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I’m currently in an ADHD training and certification program, which I’ll complete in August 2021. During this time, I am able to accept a limited number of early clients at discounted rates.
My coaching style is positive, optimistic, empathetic, and grounded in an understanding of how the ADHD brain functions. I will help you clarify your priorities and goals, and I’ll work with you to develop strategies and track your progress. I will treat you as the expert on your own brain and experiences, and we’ll find and celebrate your insights and accomplishments together. My toolkit for ADHD support strategies is continually expanding.
My certification work is through ADDCA, and it will qualify me for industry standard ADHD Coach and Life Coach certifications from the Professional Association for ADHD Coaches (PAAC) and the International Coaching Federation (ICF). In addition to this process, I’m working with an experienced coach for guidance and supervision.
Prior to my work in ADHD coaching, I created Genderfork.com, a supportive community blog for the expression of identities across the gender spectrum, which ran from 2007 to 2018. I’ve also worked extensively in technology, where I focused on productivity software and online communities. I’ve worked in both project and product management, and I’m a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).
While these may seem like disconnected career phases, I believe they fit together beautifully:
- I love finding and continually improving the systems and strategies that truly work for each us.
- I am passionate about supporting and celebrating our wide range of diversity in gender and sexuality.
- I am a strong advocate for designing our lives to fit who we authentically are.
- I am a fierce protector of individuality, and believe we each need our own unique combinations of solutions.
- I have deep respect for the interconnectedness of our vibrant communities, and am committed to honoring their wisdom and nurturing their health.
