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.

If you have ADHD, your brain is wired differently than the majority of the population. This is beautiful, and it also brings a multitude of challenges. Together we will experiment with strategies that work with your brain, not against it. No ADHD brain works exactly the same, and I approach each session with this in mind. People with ADHD often have internalized shame from living in an ableist culture, and we will make plenty of space to explore that as well.

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.
