What to expect

We know how important it is for your teen to get the right support. Our ADHD Coaching for Teens program is here to help your child thrive with expert guidance and personalized strategies.

1: Meet the coach

The journey begins with a 30-minute 'Meet the Coach' session. This is a mandatory session for your teen, and parents are welcome to join. This meeting helps set the stage, allowing both you and your teen to understand the goals and structure of the program.

2: Weekly coaching

After the initial meeting, your teen will have a 30-minute coaching session each week. These sessions are designed to be a safe, confidential space where they can work on their goals with the support of a skilled coach. You can rest assured knowing your teen is in good hands.

3: Ongoing support

Your teen will also have access to our Shimmer app. This app provides them with action plans, accountability reminders, and science-backed learning modules to support their journey. Our approach is focused on building long-term skills and self-sufficiency, ensuring your teen can thrive independently.

Safety and Confidentiality

Our program is designed with your teen in the driver's seat. They will have a confidential space to share with their coach, ensuring they feel safe and supported. In emergency situations, our coaches follow strict protocols to ensure your teen’s safety.

What is ADHD coaching & how does it work at Shimmer?

Shimmer’s ADHD coaching is about change. We help you achieve change in any (and often all) domains of your life, with a keen eye on ADHD-specific challenges. We practice a solution-focused, health coaching model with an emphasis on observable actions & behaviors. Shimmer’s ADHD Coaching Program looks at the key dimensions where life takes place for people with ADHD:

- ⏰ Time: managing the past, present, and future
- ⭕ Done: starting, following through, and finishing things
- ⏯️ Pause: emotional regulation

Our ADHD coaches partner with you to co-design a plan that helps you achieve your goals. You'll experiment with strategies on a weekly basis to implement a routine fit specifically for you.

Tactically, each coach-member partnership begins with vision & goal setting, followed by a weekly cadence of experimentation & reflection cycle, delivered through:- real-human guidance & accountability on a frequent basis,- science-backed methods (ADHD-focused classic & third-wave CBT)- modern application of psychological sciences (prospective, positive, health, neuro-)- personalized experiments of strategies that work for ADHD brains

What kind of time commitment do I have to make?

Shimmer is designed to fit into your schedule — not the other way around. Your coach will design and schedule your tasks based on what's realistic for you and can make changes during the week to accommodate your busy life.

Can I use my HSA, FSA or HRA to expense Shimmer?

Yes you can! We are HSA/FSA/HRA-eligible.

This means if you have a Health Savings Account, Flexible Savings Account, or Health Reimbursement Arrangement with your employer, you can pay for Shimmer using your card from one of these accounts. You can also submit our invoices for reimbursement to your provider if you forget to use the card provided by them for your subscription.

Some providers may require you to submit a letter of necessity for this expense, please reach out to us at if you need any help with getting your subscription reimbursed by your HSA/FSA/HRA provider!

How do I become a Shimmer ADHD Coach?

We’re so glad you’re interested! We’re looking for licensed coaches (ICF or NBHWC preferred) or licensed mental health professionals (e.g., PhD, PsyD, LCSW, LMFT, etc.) specializing in ADHD. Shimmer coaches are passionate to help others, kind & empathetic, and most of us are living with ADHD ourselves. If you're interested in applying, fill out this form and we'll reach out if it's a good fit!

Can I reschedule or cancel a session?

We understand that life doesn't always go according to plan. Shimmer members can cancel or reschedule a coaching video call without penalty 24 hours in advance. If cancellation is within 24 hours, the session will be forfeited for the week. Thank you for your understanding!
