"Jen has worked with our 12-year old daughter & my husband and I for the past 6 months. Her coaching has had more impact on our family than all of the other services we've received so far. It feels like we are becoming a 'normal' family".
-Crystal B, Licensed Professional Counselor, Oregon
"My 13-year-old son's ADHD went undiagnosed for years, and he struggled with emotional regulation and low self-esteem. At Jen's guidance and urging we had him formally tested. The results revealed so many eye-opening insights and helped us gain a deeper understanding of his challenges and gifts. But most importantly it normalized all the challenges my son felt so ashamed of before then and helped him see his phenomenal gifts that also come with ADHD. Jen’s coaching helped my son gain the tools he needed in order to function within the typical school and general life setting. His grades improved significantly, as did his self-confidence. He is a completely different kid. Jen guided us and attended his 504 meetings at his school which helped ensure accommodations went into place to help him feel supported and succeed. We are so grateful to Jen. "

Hi, my name is Jen Sorge, and I am an ADHD, Executive Function & Socials Skills Coach who specializes in working with youth, parents, adults, and families.
As the mom of 21-year-old triplets, two of whom have ADHD, my passion for coaching stems from understanding the daily challenges that ADHD youth face, as well as experiencing first-hand the ADHD parenting journey.
My aim is to equip youth with critical executive function skills so they can achieve their goals and aspirations. My objective with parents is to provide parent training and support, enabling them to help their ADHD kids thrive. My overarching goal is to help the entire family unit function better, despite ADHD or executive function challenges.
My experience with ADHD began when my son was diagnosed with combined-type ADHD at 8 years old. He was also challenged by hearing loss, sensory processing disorder and dysgraphia. With him, I navigated elementary, middle, high school and college and the various challenges that each level and transition presented. I participated in IEP meetings, ensuring that his accommodations were set, acted as a liaison with teachers and staff, and attended many lectures and sessions on ADHD. With that knowledge, I created a structure at home to facilitate his success as both a learner and a connected family member.
My journey continued when my daughter, who was identified as gifted in 4th grade, was diagnosed with inattentive ADHD at 16 years old. She had been under the radar for years because her symptoms were not significant until the high school workload became heavier. She also struggled with social challenges, which can be typical of those who are twice exceptional (gifted and ADHD). Since my inattentive, gifted daughter had completely different challenges than my son’s, I needed to learn how to support her unique needs.
I am lucky that I get to do what I love to do every day! If you would like to talk with me, please complete the Contact Me page of our website. I look forward to connecting with you to see how we might work together.
