ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a brain disorder that is typically characterized by a lack of impulse control, an inability to focus and pay attention, and hyperactivity. ADHD most commonly emerges in children and teens and can continue into adulthood. In fact, ADHD is the most common mental health disorder diagnosed in young people and sufferers often have trouble paying attention in school. ADHD must be diagnosed by a qualified clinician. In addition to medical interventions, seeing a mental health practitioner who specializes in the treatment of ADHD can help patients and their families better cope with many of the symptoms.

As a sufferer of Inattentive-Type ADHD myself, I understand that oftentimes feelings of internalized self-judgement and obsolete coping skills can be just as painful as the symptoms of ADHD themselves. And often the stress of accumulated incomplete tasks can snowball into new problems that seem to have a life of their own. I have helped many adults of all ages untangle these knots and gain a greater sense of self-acceptance, forward progression, and calm in their lives.

I am a therapist with ADHD specializing in working with my fellow ADHDers. This is absolutely an area of hyperfocus for me and I am truly fascinated by how our brains work. While I have sought extensive training as well as self-educating in this area, my greatest source of information is my clients (cheesy, I know). I get to see up close which strategies are only great in theory and which ones are actually user friendly and effective.

— Casey Lester, Psychiatrist in Menlo Park, CA

I have a lot of experience helping others manage and make sense of their ADHD symptoms. As with anything, when we incorporate those experiences into our identity, rather than try to change who we are, we operate from a place of empowerment rather than defeat. In doing so, we can see how those symptoms can actually be helpful instead of just hinderances.
