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.

My treatment for ADHD offers a structured process with art and computer programs. It requires a weekly session and in some cases homework.

— Maureen Del Giacco, Creative Art Therapist in Colonie, NY

Finding supportive, informed therapists for ADHD, Autism and other Neurodiversities (ND) can feel like an impossible task. Believe me, I know. Both my brother (who's Autistic) & myself (who's ADHD) have heard collectively, every dismissive comment from professionals, friends, families and strangers. We understand the unique issues females/ AFAB people face with being diagnosed (Dx). Every therapist at my practice is competent and informed in this area and is trained on dxing NDs.

I have both professional and personal experience working with those struggling with the symptoms of ADHD.

Problems with attention, impulsiveness, and disorganization can sabotage an otherwise bright and motivated person. ADHD family therapy with me usually involves finding ways to structure the school and home settings to best support the young person. Adult ADHD coaching is similarly focused on work and home with the additional idea of "picking you niche" and best fit. Medication referrals and talking about medication are also common.
