Shimmer provides 'bite sized' ADHD coaching to people with ADHD or executive function challenges. Shimmer was born from a group of ADHD coaches, psychiatrists, doctors, and engineers to create a personalized, ACTION-oriented playground for you and your coach to explore.

We're not another list, calendar, or app: we're REAL human interactions paired with expert strategies and experimentation, so that you can make real changes in your life. Oh, and we also have ADHD too!

Shimmer is for people with ADHD or struggling with executive function challenges. We’re for those who are ready to make a change and take real action to reach their goals. We’re for those ready to put in the work. Typically our members fall into 3 categories:

1. are newly diagnosed or looking to understand their ADHD better: we provide psycho-education and guidance for you to understand ADHD & how it impacts your life
2. have concrete executive function skills they’d like to improve on and are looking for guidance to follow through: we provide the critical knowledge, resources, guidance, support, and accountability so that you actually implement the changes (routines, skills, tools) that will help you reach your goals
3. know they can achieve more and aren’t living at their potential: we use an ACT-based methodology to help you identify your values and help you live in line with them

Our ADHD coaches partner with you to co-design a plan to achieve your goals. You'll experiment with strategies on a weekly basis to implement a routine fit specifically for YOU. Our program has been designed off science-backed methods in partnership with NYU, UC Berkeley, and UCSF.

- Attend weekly 1:1 check-ins with your coach
- Personalized plan each week catered to you
- Experiment with tailored skills, strategies, and routines
- Text-based accountability check-ins throughout the week from your coach
- Learn ADHD skills and tips through bite-sized learning modules

The biggest value we’ve heard from our members are:

- An expert ADHD coach that knows ADHD inside out and understands them
- An accountability partner to hold them to what they said they’d do
- Someone to help them break down big tasks to feel less overwhelmed
- Guidance to navigate the sea of content and resources out there
- Personalized positive reinforcement, support and celebration of the little things
- Weekly cadence to make baby steps for changes in their life
- An affordable alternative to traditional ADHD coaching that fits into their life

Our coaches are specialized in taking an ADHD-adapted approach to coaching and are skilled at helping you navigate life’s ups and downs. Not sure if you’re in the right place? Our members come to use and are working on:

- Understanding their ADHD
- Feeling they’re not living up to their full potential
- Goal setting & habit building
- Creating routines & schedules
- Feelings of overwhelm, paralysis, and inability to turn brain off
- Issues with self-esteem and negative self-talk
- Inability to focus during working hours
- Holding themselves accountable to changes, challenging “excuse” thoughts
- Task initiation
- Being more productive

Most of our members have ADHD but you don’t need to be formally diagnosed to use Shimmer. We help all sorts of individuals with ADHD-related symptoms like executive function challenges, goal-setting, and living a fuller life!

Life-changing ADHD app - highly recommend!

I've been using Shimmer for a few weeks now and I can't recommend it enough. As someone with ADHD, I've struggled with staying organized and focused, but this app has been a game-changer for me. The user interface is easy to navigate and the sessions are customized to my specific needs. The app also provides a lot of general tips and strategies for managing ADHD symptoms, which have been incredibly helpful for me.

Overall, I've noticed a significant improvement in my productivity and overall well-being since using Shimmer. If you're looking for a comprehensive and user-friendly mental health app focused on ADHD, this is definitely the one to try!

This is what I have been searching for for years! Those of us with ADHD know how agonizing it can be to have a problem, be aware of the problem, & wanting to change the problem with no idea of where to even begin. Shimmer is how. Everything is centralized in the app & there is no guesswork. You work with them to find a coach that fits your needs instead of searching endlessly yourself. Best of all is you can pay for it through your HSA after setting it up a single time. It's literally made for people that have ADHD. I'm so grateful to have found Shimmer & that I have begun my coaching journey!

So far, so good!

I have been doing ADHD coaching for about 1 month and so far it’s been a good experience.

A major perk is that you can use HSA funds to pay for coaching. The cost is also very affordable compared to other ADHD coaching providers, so I sincerely hope that the staff is also being compensated fairly given the low cost.

I like that my coach Staci lets the conversation be whatever I want it to be. Some days I need help with specific tasks, or we set aside the time as a “working session” where I can actually do the tasks I have been putting off as I struggle heavily with procrastination.

Staci also brings a lot of recommendations from her other clients that have helped them manage their ADHD, so the knowledge sharing element alone is invaluable.

I have already recommended Shimmer to a handful of my ADHD friends because it normalizes the ADHD struggle and motivates me and holds me accountable before each weekly session.

Developer Response ,

Hi rebeccajanej, thank you so much for sharing about your experience so far! We’re so happy to hear that you’ve been able to use your HSA funds to help cover the investment of coaching, and how much Coach Staci has helped you so far. Coaching is meant to be a very personalized experience, so it’s amazing to hear how both of you work together to come up with what’s most helpful for you during each session!

And we really appreciate you spreading the word about Shimmer!

You can find this in the Settings on the platform, reach out to if you need help finding it :)
