Ms. Orlov is most known for her award-winning books on marriage counseling for couples affected by ADHD. 

She’ll be sharing the exact same strategies she has used to help hundreds of families affected by ADHD to resolve their marital conflicts, without exploding into irreconcilable fights.

But what impresses me most about Ms. Orlov is the depth of her knowledge and fluidity, which allows her to confidently speak about any aspect of the family dynamic and recommend coaching strategies to improve executive functions.
