Cory Henderson, CALC

Cory Henderson is a proud mother of five sons and grandmother to sixteen wonderful grandchildren. Family is everything to her and she’ll gladly expound on each individual if given the opportunity.

She describes the day she was diagnosed with ADHD as ‘devastating.’ “All I had in my mind were the stereotypical assumptions usually attributed to those stuck with the label and it was discouraging,” she said. With an internal resolve she didn’t realize she possessed, she started on a venture of discovery—one that changed her life in ways she could not have imagined.

Cory became passionate in her studies and is now a Certified ADHD Life Coach. Her greatest desire is to help others better manage their ADHD lives.

“I believe others can benefit from my knowledge, training and experience. I’d like them to learn to do as I believe I have done—turn discouragement into success. Those who have been given the gift of ADHD are creative, resourceful and whole."
