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.

Many adults experience difficulties with losing track of things, difficulty being on time, challenges with meeting deadlines or completing projects, and especially with starting projects even when they have been excited about them. Children with ADD/ADHD grow into adults with these symptoms, and this can create a tendency to beat yourself down and develop depression and anxiety, for not being able to track things or do things like other people seem to do. Allow me to help.
