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.

Anxiety can psychologically damage the brain. Traumatic events can also be psychologically damaging and seeking out help is a great way to heal. I have had expertise in this area for many years helping with both the steps to help you with coping strategies and medications. Contact me today and I will be glad to help you.

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 work with neurodivergent individuals to help them learn new coping strategies, create new ways to manage their situations, and connect them to the neurodivergent community. With a deep understanding of what life is like for us, I'm able to connect better with my clients and make a real difference in their lives.

— Katie Robey, Associate Clinical Social Worker in Los Gatos, CA

When your brain doesn't know how to filter out the unimportant and every sound or sensation gets equal attention, it is forced to work in overdrive all the time. It's exhausting and can lead to a ton of anxiety as you try to "pretend normal". The good news is that when you start to understand your brain and develop systems to help you focus on the important stuff, school/work/daily life can get a lot easier. My job is to help you explore things that work so you can enjoy life again.

— Katy Harmon, Licensed Clinical Social Worker - Candidate in Austin, TX
 

ADHD is a highly misunderstood diagnosis-- even for those of us who diagnose it! I consider ADHD a spectrum and no two ADHDers are the same. I do not believe in ADHD as exclusively a deficit, but something unique that comes with it's own challenges but if we can "hack our system", we can thrive, and that is something I tell all my clients- neurotypical or neurodivergent. In our sessions we will discuss ways your ADHD may negatively impact you and how we can cope with that

— Renee Long, Psychotherapist in Edmond, OK

As someone who was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, I know firsthand the uncertainty that comes with being diagnosed later in life. I understand the difficulties people with ADHD often face such as procrastination, focus, overwhelm, rejection sensitivity, low self-esteem, impulsivity, and emotional dysregulation to name a few. I love working with ADHD individuals to help them better understand their symptoms, and to work together to find ways to function more comfortably in a neurotypical world.

I treat ADHD with the full spectrum of medications available, for children, adolescents and adults. I am able to diagnose and treat, and while I do require a client's participation in a psychiatric evaluation as part of my assessment, I do not require a neuropsychological evaluation before prescribing medication. I do use tools such as computerized testing to track progress for ADHD treatment.

— Jodie Deignan, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in White Plains, NY

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.
