As physician and busy mother of 3, I know what it is like to have a chaotic life. I have always had a scattered mind, but I have usually just pushed through it, ignored it and gotten by through luck, sweat and sometimes by the skin of my teeth! As life got busier and more complicated, it was getting harder and harder to maintain my home, meet my responsibilities as a co-parent and of course manage a very busy medical career. I was at a medical conference when I met Shanna Pearson. I was intrigued by the idea that learning skills could help someone with ADHD live a more productive life. I read about the challenges people with ADHD face in organizing their lives and I realized that I have those same challenges, despite never having been diagnosed with the disorder. Although at first I thought Expert ADHD Coaching would be a good resource for my patients, I realized that this could also be an incredible resource for ME. I took a chance and signed up, which was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I worked with my coach to learn the skills to organize my life and get on top of my tasks while constantly keeping my goals in mind. 1 year later, I am more focused, more relaxed, more productive and meeting my goals in both career and family life. I know that my family and colleagues have greatly benefited from the fact that I now have the skills to take charge of my life. Thank you Shanna Pearson, and everyone at Expert ADHD Coaching! I would recommend this resource to my patients, colleagues and anyone who feels they need help getting control of their lives - with or without having a "formal" ADHD diagnosis!

Just saying the words "Thank you" seems not to truly convey how grateful I am to you and your team. I know you're in the business of improving peoples' lives, so let me tell you, first hand, that my life has very much improved. I can honestly say that when I first contacted you, I was in a very dark and painful place in my mind and desperately needed help. I generally have a positive outlook, but I was desperate for someone to show me how to emerge from my overwhelming funk. I knew I had the tools in my belt, I just didn't know how to use them. Now I do. I could not be more grateful.
My focus is heightened. My vision is clear. I believe in myself. I know I have more control of my emotions. I can now slow moments down and focus on the facts and BE PRESENT. I know I'm accountable. My accomplishments this year have been outstanding
So it's with a happy heart now, that I can look back on my journey with you, which started with desperation and sadness, and now is full of joy, fulfillment and accomplishment, that I can say, without a doubt, my world is a better place for having your One Focus.
Thank you Shanna!!!

As a practicing psychiatrist with ADHD and multiple obligations, I was finding it difficult to stay on track. Medication helped somewhat but I still needed something to manage the day to day effects of adhd in my life.
Shanna Pearson's Expert ADHD Coaching is what made the difference for me personally. With the help of my coach I've been able to have an amazing personal and professional life... with more time to do all of the things I love.
Looking forward, I am excited about my continued work with my coach, as well as having Expert ADHD Coaching to refer my patients to!
Dr. M. Guerrero, M.D., Psychiatrist, TX.
Expert ADHD Coaching is a lifesaver, and a life changer. Working with my Expert ADHD coach has given me structure, accountability and better follow through. I am meeting deadlines, finishing projects, and learning to plan!
Instead of jumping from crisis to crisis, I feel like I’m accomplishing important life tasks.
I wish I had found Expert ADHD coaching sooner.
Dr. Melissa Brown, New York
To paraphrase a well-know quote, “You had me at hello!”
After the first 5 minutes with my Expert ADHD Coach, I knew that I would be able to overcome years of procrastination and the inability to focus. I needed to focus on getting “me” back.
Through learning how my brain works, I can now implement specific tools to change the way I think. My mind and actions have gone from a place of self-defeat to a state of healthy self-esteem, confidence and the excitement of getting things done! Where I once had many activities in the works but very little completed, I now have amazing follow-through. My narrative has gone from negative to incredibly positive and I greet each new day with joy!
I look forward to my coaching sessions like a child let loose in a candy store! The minute I put down the phone with my coach, I am counting the minutes and days until our next call when I get to add more tools to the (tool) toy box!
Debbie I., Broker. New York, NY
Your experience was evident as you identified my needs quicker than anyone I have ever met.
You selected the perfect coach and had us working in lightning time because I needed the help then. The timing, organization & professionalism was & continues to be remarkable . You are positive and approachable. Goes to show nothing happens randomly. I had many coaching organizations to choose from but I picked yours, & you chose the best coach for me. Thank you.
I feel blessed, I am making great progress. Enjoy your day :)
Joanne Whidden, Ontario, Canada
Working with my coach was amazing. So much positive change has come about in my life over the past six months and I attribute a great deal of it to the work I did with my Expert ADHD Coach.
Thank you so much!
- J.P. King, Toronto, Ontario
Shanna- I am VERY pleased and proud of the many ways my daughter is benefiting from her coaching with your company! And our family by proxy :) I can see this program is a worthy investment for her (planning, time management, self-esteem, accountability, learning how to motivate and take initiative, building daily habits) and imagine it’s going to be super helpful (especially with taking initiative and breaking larger assignments down into bite size manageable pieces) once she starts school again.
I thought she would get a lot out of coaching but didn’t expect her to take to it this well so fast. I really can’t thank you enough!
Cristi Drake, President/ Founder, CA.
I want to express my deepest, sincerest appreciation for everything you've taught me. Your knowledge, wisdom, and insight with regards to ADHD, relationships, and every other area of my life have helped me grow these past 6 months and have given me many tools to better my time management, improve my focus, health and well-being, and work. In addition, I feel that I communicate better with my wife and I’m a better father to my children. Your numerous exercises, anecdotes, and practical methods have made a significant positive impact in many areas of my life.
May you have continued success in positively impacting the people you work with and helping them make great changes in their lives.
I’m looking forward to this Friday’s session!
S. Beck, Case Manager. New York.
My Expert ADHD Coach was a tremendous help to me in learning how to prioritize, plan, and overcome the negativity that accompanies my Adhd. As a sales rep with a $2M quota and a seemingly endless list of items to track and follow up on, there is never a shortage of stress in my day. My coach taught me how to focus, prioritize, and be realistic about what I could actually accomplish in a day. I am now much more proactive than reactive, which translates to less anxiety and more productivity. She is a true professional and someone you should partner with if you are serious about self-improvement.
Tom K., Sales Manager, CT.
Dear Shanna, I just wanted to let you know how meaningful the guidance that your coach and program has meant to me and has changed my life, all for the better. I am a different person at home, having more patience with my 2 little girls and wife; and at work as I work more efficiently, build better teams, and provide more insight on what I need. Being in control of my mind, as opposed to the other way around, has given me a renewed outlook on life. Action-based Awareness, scheduling and structure have led to my success. Now it is on me to have “Continual Forward Progress" to keep my gains.
I don’t believe that my coach and I could have been a better fit and feel that you should be aware of her amazing contributions to my accomplishment. Thank you for all that you do!
Chadd Roadarmel, Atlantic Equipment Specialists
I wanted to take this time to gush a bit about working with you! I can’t say enough about how wonderful it has been and how much I have learned! Although it is a challenging and oft times painful experience – opening up all these wounds all of us *ADD’ers* know so well – I know it will be worth it in the end when I can be free of being in “my head” all day long! My coach's knowledge and the way she extends that information is perfect for me – I finally *get* what it is that drives my world view. Because of this – it’s already effected my interactions with my 2 kids, who also have ADHD – as now I view their behaviors with a clearer lens. I am hoping that my continued work with your program will continue to provide me with the valuable insights that will allow me to “coach” my own children in a way that might prevent them from going through some of the more painful challenges that I have experienced in my life.
Thank you - Shanna – for providing such a wonderful and valuable service!
L. Fitzgerald, R.N. Mass.
My expert ADHD coach is a huge gift in my life!
I have achieved so many personal victories it is hard to name just one. Working with you has changed my life for the better in every area! -And, it was easier than I thought it would be!
Thank you for One Focus Shanna. Your company is changing so many lives!
Jill Bridell, Missouri
The best move I've made in over a decade was to contact Expert ADHD Coaching- after only 3 months my head isn't spinning anymore, I'm kicking butt in my business, spending more time with my kids, and I'm back in the game 100%!
Alex M., Phoenix AZ
As a woman with ADHD, this system Really helps me get things Done.
I've reduced my procrastination, and have identified how I need to stick with my decisions. This reduces stress and makes life much more enjoyable.
Marci M, Engineer. Calgary AB.
I love working with Shanna - She knows the secrets of trainers and speakers who charge thousands of dollars per hour for coaching! She’s the best deal of the decade!
Noah Sklarin, JP Morgan, UK
After working with my coach for a short time, my career and my relationship have both gone from “good” to “Absolutely Amazing”! I only wish I knew about Shanna Pearson 10 years ago.
Jamie Foreman, Event Producer, CA
I turned 50 this year! With just a month into Shanna’s coaching program, I realize that I have more "will be" in me than "has been" in me!
Susan Beauvais, Ont, JHS Niagara Career Coach
Shanna's the Best! She's helped me raise my GPA from a 2.0 to a 3.2! Her study techniques are totally unique and 100% A.D.D. 'friendly'. She shares the exact methods that she invented for herself when She was in university, and they work! I finally found somebody who understands me and what I'm going through in school!
Mark S., 3rd year BSc student, University of Toronto
I want to thank you for being the focal point I've needed for so long. My life has changed incredibly since I started working with you . I spent nearly ten years wandering in circles, knowing I needed to eat better, sleep better, exercise more etc. but everything I tried petered out quickly. Now, with your regular direction and positive feedback I am able to implement changes quickly and often easily. Your work has helped me make my life wonderful. I happily recommend you to all in my life who are seeking improved focus and more control over their lives - whether they have ADD or not. Thank you so much,
Brian D. Hagan, Senior Project Co-ordinator RMOW, Ont.
Working with Shanna has been a life changing experience. I had spent the majority of my life being stressed, unorganized, unfocused and generally bouncing from one thing to another before I got the diagnosis of ADHD. The discovery of ADHD in itself was life changing but it still wasn't helping me get where I wanted and needed to be. About 8 months after the diagnosis I started working with Shanna. She helped me create the structure that I and so many ADD'ers need and cannot always create for ourselves. We worked on setting goals, changing habits and putting a plan of action into place. By learning to focus on only one thing at a time I have been able to see my life transform with me in the driver's seat. I would say one of the greatest successes that I have seen in my life is that I'm implementing some of the tools she's taught me without being prompted to. Such as setting goals and seeing myself achieve them from the basic goal of having breakfast every morning to the complex and more detailed goal of starting my own business, which I have!
Danielle Susskind, Virtual Events Consultant, Toronto
Prior to working with Shanna, I had never met someone who could truly understand the extent of my inclination to overwhelm myself with tasks and commitments. My problem of overwhelm was sufficiently severe that it frequently prevented me from accomplishing my goals, and led to high levels of frustration. Shanna was able to help me through her strong skill of Focusing and clarifying my priorities. Secondly, Shanna has an exceptional combination of extraordinarily high energy, boldness, optimism, and commitment in pro-actively seeking her goals, and the goals of her clients. As such, she is truly an inspiration and a mentor to me!

Shanna! I feel so Lucky to have found you! Our conversations leave me empowered and always aware of new elements to hone my effectiveness.
Bill Nesbitt, Toronto
As a result of working with Shanna I've actually gone from a couch potato to a runner (literally-can now run 10 km).
Daniel M., YMCA Career Services, Sudbury
At age 37, I was diagnosed with ADD. My coach worked with me to understand exactly where in my life it’s been impacting me, and what I can do about it now. She gave me simple tools that I put to use right away, and before I knew it- I became more organized than I’ve ever been in my life! I finally feel in control of my career and my money! … Honestly, I never thought that would be possible for me.
Karen Perez, Entertainment Lawyer, BC
Hi Shanna, The work you’re doing with us is such a great fit for our team. You've jump started all of the ideas I had to an entirely new level and we are excited for it to continue here at the YMCA among our staff.
The coaching and resources you've given us are amazing. With the YMCA of Greater Toronto promoting healthy living, as well as personal growth among our community, it was nice to be involved in making some of these choices ourselves as staff- It needs to start here 100%. Thanks for everything you’ve done for us Shanna!
Sarah Thomas, Quality Assurance Coordinator, YMCA of Greater Toronto
Shanna does an absolutely Amazing job - motivating us to motivate our team and keeping us on-track!!...
Doug Millward, JobZone D’Emploi, Cornwall Ont.
Shanna has an incredible ability to inspire youth and adults alike, as well as providing experiences that impact lives.
Jordon Dale, SLC Executive Director, NYC
When you're an adult with ADHD, your symptoms become magnified as your life becomes more complicated. One Focus has changed my life and has completely changed the way I do things!
This program has given me incredible confidence, amazing tools, and a Usable plan of action which I'm now able to implement every single day.
Shelby Dabney, DF-Financial services, Dallas, Tx.
Shanna Pearson is a brilliant motivator.
I personally watched as four seminar participants approached Shanna to express that she “changed their life”. Shanna inspires action and achievement, she is highly professional, enthusiastic, and a fantastic leader.
I highly recommend her services.
Zev Darrack, Banklink Configuration Manager, NYC
FUN! That’s how it is to work with Expert ADHD Coaching! Shanna gave me the gift of turning my ADD into something positive. She’s given me simple ADD management strategies that have made me a lot more successful at work (and at home!). I’m also a huge fan of her uncle (T.Harv Eker) so it’s always great when she shares personal stories about what she learned from him growing up, and what he teaches her today. It feels like I’m learning directly from him too!
Mitch Freeman, Financial Advisor, NYC
Shanna ran an Amazing seminar at the University of Toronto- In 90 minutes she taught me more about working with my ADD than reading the 5 books I've read on the subject. Her seminar was extremely informative and FUN. I'll be working with Shanna regularly soon and I can't wait!
Anne L., University of Toronto 4th year
Shanna is one truly gifted (and fearless!) woman. Not only did she help me get my finances in order (!), but after years trying to meet everyone else’s expectations and never doing what I actually loved, she motivated me to finally start my own business- A dream come true… And it’s already profitable!
Dayna Rice, Personal Trainer, NYC
Everyone here loved Shanna’s coaching program and we’re all still committed, -this has been really great - even employee relations have improved- we’re not just working but we’re also all having fun together. Thanks!
Laurie Froman, Programs and Services Officer, Grand River
On behalf of our entire office, I would like to thank you for helping all of us strive for, and achieve More in our personal and work life! Congratulations on the great job!
Rossitza Laleva, COSTI Caledonia
Shanna coaches me to get really clear on what it is I want and how I'm going to get it. She has a lifetime of experience and skills to be an incredibly effective coach - I started getting results as soon as we started working together. Shanna has an overflowing figurative toolbox of creative, fun skills that are truly getting me where I want to go - to places that have been difficult for me to get to on my own.
K.I, Occupational Therapist, Toronto
I met Shanna at one of her uncle Harv’s Peak Potentials programs. I can’t get over how much her attitude is exactly like his. Especially her no B.S approach… It’s Exactly what I needed in a coach. She’s Awesome!
Thomas Choe, Xerox, TX
Shanna Pearson is a miracle worker! What she’s done for me is just amazing. My life was pure chaos! I was usually in a state of overwhelm or anxiety because of my ADD... I was always running behind, rarely feeling relaxed. Now, after only 4 months of working with Shanna, my health (mental And physical), marriage, and job satisfaction have all improved. I even "accidentally" lost 12 pounds- not because of any diet, but because I’m feeling good and generally happier with myself…What a bonus!
Danielle Wise, JD. Real Estate lawyer, CA
In working with Shanna over the past year it has become obvious to me that she has the practical knowledge and the experience that is crucial to a successful coaching relationship. Her savvy application of these skills goes far beyond the impact of any theoretical posturing. Shanna has helped facilitate my process of becoming a more effective learner, which has not only resulted my increased confidence and performance, but has also allowed me to begin reflectively coach myself.
I enjoy collaborating with Shanna because she invests herself in assisting and encouraging me to meet my objectives, Not furthering her own agenda. I feel more empowered and more inspired to achieve the goals I’ve set out for myself.
Karen Krauter, York University
Shanna led her University Success seminar at York University last month- and it was Outstanding! She seems to know everything about ADHD (probably because she lives with it herself!). I was lucky to start working with her 1ce/week and already after only a few sessions I'm feeling much more in control of my life! Everyone with ADHD should work with Shanna - you'll be amazed at how gifted she is and how EASY it is for you to use your ADD to be as successful as you want!!
Asher N., York University 2nd year
The personalized attention that our school has gotten from Shanna Pearson is superlative. She has managed to brilliantly integrate her coaching, seminars, and workshops into our specific curriculum, thus greatly enhancing the educational experiences of the students who attend here. We consistently receive rave reviews of her programs! Thank you.
Jennie Allen, Assistant Director of Education, NYC
Shanna's program has made my life so much easier! I never knew about ADD until a couple of years ago and I never thought about having a personal coach before. I saw that I was jumping around from job to job a lot- but not ever doing what I wanted.
Thanks to Expert ADHD Coaching I now have the right tools to make my ADHD work for me! I'm a lot more focused now- I’ve accomplished 3 major goals and I’m not stopping.
Melissa Sanders, AT&T, NYC.
Shanna, first, let me say, I think you are awesome for creating your wellness program for all of us. It’s been phenomenal! You’ve done a great job and all our staff are very excited!
J. M., Employment Counsellor, EEC, Brockville
I have seen a number of wonderful educators and leaders. Without reservation, I would put Shanna Pearson in the highest ranks. She inspires joy and success, and has an uncanny ability to consistently transform and motivate each person she works with.
