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.

In my work, with people who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, I keep this important part of their life and experience front and center.

What invisible ways have our differences impacted our understandings of relationships? I support people in challenging these narratives

As a fellow ADHD'r, I understand that it's not only that academics can be challenging. ADHD effects your relationships, your emotions and your resulting behavior. "Simple" tasks can feel impossible while you can simultaneously jump into a new hobby and master it within the week (only to let it go soon after). We'll sort through your executive functioning strengths and differences to figure out what is and isn't working in your daily life, so you can put effective supports in place.

As a clinician who also has ADD/HD I understand the good and the bad. Many adolescents and adults suffer from the problems associated with ADD/HD because they have never been diagnosed. It can affect marriage, life, personal associations, work and many other areas. It can also serve as a wonderful adjunct to developing new ideas and products. It can be directed, once you understand it's effects.
