Linda Swanson, MA, PCC, PCAC

Linda Swanson, MA, PCC, PCAC, is a dedicated and passionate coach of ADHD adults from college age through seniors. Linda has decades of experience living with both undiagnosed and diagnosed ADHD, since she and her husband Neil were not diagnosed until they were in their 60s after more than 30 years of marriage. Her life experience, her training from the ADD Coach Academy, and her years of coaching give her the understanding, compassion, and knowledge to support her clients’ growth and transformations as they move toward their goals and dreams. Linda serves as Secretary on the PAAC Board and is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Attention magazine. She and her husband Neil, also an ADHD coach, are partners at Free To Be Coaching, LLC, in Warrenton, Virginia. The website is freetobecoaching.com.

These past 12 weeks working with Linda proved more than I could've imagined. I've hit so many personal and professional milestones and have gone through some of the toughest challenges in my life. Having Linda there supporting, listening, celebrating, and cheering me along helped keep me grounded and able to celebrate those little things I wouldn't have normally noticed and learn that I do not need to be ashamed of or make excuses for who I am. 🙂
