Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen
If you’ve ever been interested in learning about Transmagnetic Stimulation (TMS), genetic screening, and being diagnosed with ADHD - then you are in the right place! This week, Dr. Sasha Hamdani joins me to talk about all of those topics and more. 

Like several of the past guests in the series on healing, I found Dr. Hamdani on TikTok. Y’all, Mental Health is a big topic over there! Dr. Hamdani is a Board Certified psychiatrist and ADHD specialist. In addition to her private practice, she has a robust social media following across multiple platforms where she provides accessible and accurate information about ADHD. I am excited to introduce you to her and the work she does in the area of mental health and healing.

You’ll hear:

  • Dr. Hamdani and I both share our ADHD diagnosis stories and then discuss whether or not someone can someone have symptoms of ADHD but not have ADHD. (9:18)
  • Transmagnetic Stimulation (TMS): what it is, who it can help, and how it helps. (16:44)
  • How you can prepare for your first meeting with a mental health medical professional. (34:21)
  • The benefits of genetic screening, what kind of data you can get from the testing, and who should use it. (39:42)
  • How the stigma of having ADHD is different for women. (49:28)
