I meant to say: it sounds as if you could use a different therapist. Why not try someone who has a different set of tools? It’s worth the experiment to try someone different.

And it’s hard to tell if we have anxiety because of the ADHD, or if anxiety is the primary cause of the problems! IDK.

The reason I’m getting an executive function coach is that most psychotherapists help with our self-esteem and relationship and communication and self-regulation etc., but they don’t seem to help with the practical tools and organization techniques.

I’m right there with you. Let’s hope the “triple-threat” approach of dr, therapist, and coach actually works!
