“Rather than be defined by a label, I choose to challenge the boundaries of its perceived limitations.” Shawn Smith

 

I had the pleasure of speaking with Shawn Smith, M.Ed., CCC about ADHD, ASD and his personal journey with it all, and how he supports his clients as a counselor/therapist. 

This conversion was such a delight, Shawn has an amazing way to capture your attention and get to the heart of the discussion. 

 

I enjoyed talking about

  • ADHD and Medication, the long journey to finding treatment that supports ADHD, and how his own experience of medication
  • He shares a unique approach to building confidence through creating challenges 
  • Shawn was recently diagnosed with ASD in addition to his ADHD, he shares how this diagnosis shows up in his life 
  • Navigating friendships as a neurodivergent thinker
  • How to manage rigid thinking 
  • I especially enjoyed his view on masking in social settings and setting boundaries  
  • “no one said being awesome is going to be easy”, Shawn Smith.
