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.

Adult ADHD can be so sneaky in some people. It's been hidden because of other strengths and talents, and emotional outbursts can be explained by something else. I've met so many women that have undiagnosed ADHD. It's at once fascinating and heartbreaking. I take tremendous care when developing strategies with clients who have this in their background. Let's start so you can finally have non-judgement when it relates to your ADHD symptoms. And finally have some answers on what will help you.

— Yoo Jin Nam, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Buena Park, CA

Those who identify with ADHD are often highly creative with an abundance of ideas + big picture connections. They can also struggle with managing their time (arriving late, super early, or generally overscheduled), organizing daily life (meeting deadlines, staying on task, paying bills on time), and experiencing strong emotions (intense feelings that are hard to manage). I work with clients to regulate difficult emotions and offer effective time management + organizational techniques.

— Jeremy Didier, Clinical Social Worker in Overland Park, KS

As a person with ADHD, I understand the shame, frustration, and anxiety that come with this disorder. I have studied ADHD skills and tools extensively. I don't condone medication, nor do I support it I believe that is an individual's choice. I do have an extensive list of tools and skills that can be used to cope with ADHD symptoms and turn them into a superpower instead of something to want to be rid of.

— Lora Hasse, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

You deserve cutting edge, practical information from a clinician that knows their shit…. and values your lived experience and the feedback of the communities we serve. We know that lived experience is what makes therapy useful and without it, we wouldn’t be here.

— Sydney Rose, Therapist in New York, NY

As someone diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, I deeply understand the struggle. In my experience, some of the biggest barriers for neurodiverse people occur because we do not fit the "mold" we've been taught to model. Part of our work together will be helping you break out of those molds, so you can create a life you can thrive in. Together, we will find the tools and systems that work uniquely for you. If they do not exist, we will create them.

— Amanda Shrekenhamer, Licensed Professional Counselor in CHEVY CHASE, MD

Most of the people I treat for ADHD are adolescents and young adults. For the adolescents they usually are experiencing difficulties in following through with their chores and school assignments and for the young adults, they are often dealing with a lack of direction in their lives resulting in a failure to launch into independent living. I primarily address ADHD symptoms through cognitive behavioral strategies, aimed at helping the clients become more disciplined in his activities of daily living. The therapeutic process is structured into small objectives which the clients builds upon towards improving focus and followthrough in his or her activities of daily living.

— Ugochukwu Uche, Counselor in Tucson, AZ

I wrote my thesis on ADHD assessment and was fortunate enough to work with a professor who has been published alongside Russell Barkley. I have spent years assessing and treating individuals who are struggling with ADHD.

— Ta'Boris Osborne, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

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.
