Beth Main is an ADHD coach, therapist, and the founder of ADHD Solutions. She specializes in helping people with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder overcome their challenges and achieve success. Beth also has training and experience with issues such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, grief, attachment, adjusting to new situations, and sexual identity. She uses a primarily cognitive-behavioral approach in her work with both coaching and therapy clients.
Based in south central Pennsylvania, Beth works with people all over the United States, as well as internationally, via phone or Skype. She meets with local clients in her Camp Hill, PA office overlooking the Conodoguinet creek.
Beth has been a professional ADHD coach since 2006. She received her ADHD coaching certification from the Institute for the Advancement of ADHD Coaching (IAAC), which was the first independent worldwide ADHD coach credentialing organization. She holds both the Board Certified Coach (BCC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) designations from the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE). She received her master's degree in Counseling from Messiah College. She is presently working under the supervision of a Licensed Professional Counselor until she meets the requirements to become a licensed counselor herself. In Pennsylvania, this means two years of post-graduate experience working under supervision. Additionally, she holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Shippensburg University. She is a member of the ACO, ADDA, CHADD, and The Edge Foundation.
Prior to following her dream of becoming a coach, Beth had a successful career as an Information Technology Project Manager / Business Analyst for a retirement services firm. She held progressively responsible positions with the same company for 18 years. That is where she learned to overcome her own focus challenges and ultimately mentored others to do the same. This first career prepared her well: identifying and resolving problems, developing and improving processes, and motivating people are all skills she now utilizes as an ADHD coach. She knows firsthand how to make it in the corporate world despite having ADHD.
On a personal level, Beth lives with her husband, son, chickens, and miniature Australian Shepherd. She enjoys backpacking, hiking, trail running, kayaking (whitewater and recreational), and creating mosaic art. She believes in the motto "Never underestimate the power of positive thinking."
"The benefit has been tremendous. [Working with Beth] has taken me out of the fear and into confidence. It's like the way a flower blooms - it comes up out of the ground. These little flowers are blooming everywhere now, effortlessly." (P.S., Educational Technologist, Velarde NM)
"Having Beth as my ADHD coach has really helped me get my priorities straight and focus on what I want to accomplish in life. She has been so helpful and practical in helping me to not only manage my time better but to manage my life better. Now I can look and see just where I am each week and readjust if I am not doing what is really important to me." (M.W., Teacher, Raleigh NC)
"The ideas you come up with are like magic. It's like you're pulling rabbits out of a hat!" (C.D., Broker, New York NY)
"Beth entirely reformed my outlook on life, and that gave me my own motivation to remodel my lifestyle for the better." (M.C., Student, Shippensburg PA)
"Beth has a very calming 'we're in this together as a team' approach. She's a great listener, challenges your thinking, and shows you ways of seeing things from other angles. Very helpful in offering suggestions and strategies." (P.J., Information Technology Consultant, Harrisburg PA)
"Thank you so much for being my coach. It is obvious that you have had more training than others I have talked with and it is very interesting for me to think about the difference in results – along with what you bring out of me! You've done a lot of questioning to help move me along, and it is making me more aware of other places I get stuck." (L.M., Coach, Centreville VA)
