Our Story

ADDvocacy was founded in 2012 by Keith Gelhorn as an ADHD coaching and training business. After being diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety at the age of 34, Keith was put on anti-anxiety and ADHD medication but quickly realized that while pills did help him focus to a point, it did little to change the years of accumulated bad habits.

ADDvocacy was born out of a necessity. We were unable to find proactive strategies and support for our own challenges, and found that too many youth and adults faced the same problem as well.

We've built our expertise and a team of coaches who have been through the same challenges you have, and found our purpose in helping others live their best lives.
