ADHD

Do you constantly feel overwhelmed and have difficulty motivating yourself?  Are you chronically late to work or appointments?  Do you have difficulty finishing projects or staying focused on a task? 

If you experience chronic boredom, anxiety, poor organizational skills, anxiety, depression, chronic lateness and forgetfulness, trouble concentrating when reading, mood swings, low self-esteem, impulsiveness, trouble controlling anger, substance abuse or substance use disorder(s), and low motivation: then you may be experiencing attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms. We are here to help.

Your clinician wants to help you understand how understanding your diagnosis of ADHD can empower you to take control of your life. Our work together may include teaching coping strategies and organizational skills (sometimes referred to as executive function coaching). Clinicians will also utilize mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapy to increase your psychological flexibility and focus. Oftentimes parents can benefit from joining sessions with their child who has an ADHD diagnosis to learn how to support and encourage their child.

Whether you are a parent of a child struggling to focus and follow directions or the way you process information has interfered in your adult relationships and goals, you are not alone.  

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, ADHD affects both adults and children alike. “an estimated 8.8% of children aged 4-17 have ADHD. While ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood, it does not only affect children. An estimated 4.4% of adults aged 18-44 have ADHD.”
