Why not a psychologist and therapy? Wouldn't you prefer someone that studied and trained to treat your kid?

I dont live in brooklyn, but I would encourage you to search for a coach and search some more. My adhd son went for years for therapy with no end in sight for all his issues. Within a few sessions with his coach, he is a different person. He finally has hope, and clear goals. Therapy was too abstract, while the coach's approach is very down to earth and realistic. He no longer sees himself as not normal, but as a normal kid with manageable issues.

It is not a wrong idea. I have a coach right now, I call her coach because the Dutch name of her profession is ''mentor'' and I don't need to have a mentor so she is my coach.
Difference with therapy is that in therapy you change behaviour. As in, if you got a low self esteem due ADHD a therapist changes that.
But a therapist can't help you with tasks like how to plan homework, household task, how to have overview with things and the like.
