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.

I bring lived experience and 13 years of professional experience to this population. My work with clients focuses on psychoeducation, identifying practical ways to externalize executive functioning deficits like procrastination, time management, impulsive words and actions, and organization. I also focus on ways to reduce sensory overwhelm. I also work from a self compassionate lens because I believe that real change can never come from a place of hating yourself.

ADHD is impairment of executive function. It really should be called Executive Function Disorder. Executive Function is like having a little CEO in your brain running things, delegating, planning, executing tasks/projections, keeping track of things, sustaining focus, making decisions, and keeping it all organized and productive. When you have ADHD, your little CEO is basically sleeping on the job. Good news: there are ways to improve this. I can help.

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.

ADHD is a specialty that I did not expect to have but I deeply love! It started in my work with children and at-risk young adults. I saw people deeply affected by it personally and professionally. I decided to dive in and do research. This is an area where a lot of people do not know and are not educated on its complexity and it is so unique to the individual. I love working with people to explore, understand and manage their ADHD.

— Adalyn Wilson, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor

Receiving a diagnosis of ADHD can be incredibly validating and overwhelming. It provides us with a framework and entryway into better understanding ourselves. At the same time, individuals with ADHD have a history of being misunderstood, under-supported, and pathologized. Through a relational, creative, and somatic holding, I hope to remind you of the incredible gifts that this beautiful brain of yours also carries. To help you learn to regulate your emotions, and advocate for what you need

— Ruby Snyder, Licensed Professional Counselor in Bethesda, MD

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
