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.

I did a deep dive into serving adults with ADHD in 2002, while working in college mental health. There wasn't a lot for adults with ADHD back then - things are much better now! Counseling for ADHD & executive functioning problems can look a little different - just like ADHDers! I like to use my Cog-B and EF-coaching toolbox, creativity and plenty of humor. Adults with ADD / ADHD are my people and college students with ADHD have a special place in my heart.

Many people do not understand the full impact ADHD can have on someone's life. Most of those in my practice have an ADHD diagnosis and or are seeking an evaluation to determine whether they meet criteria. Many children, teens, and adults come for counseling or neurofeedback. We get those with ADHD and know how to help.

I support people with ADHD, all types learn to have compassion for themselves. I find that there is a lot of overlap in the queer and trans communities with ADHD and neurodiversity in general and I find that I am especially attuned to working with these populations. My offices each have fidgets and toys to help client's focus and I'm skilled at following trains of thought that loop around without much context.

I have a personal involvement with ADHD. And while ADHD may be over diagnosed, I can attest that the combination of ADHD and exposure to the internet is the equivalent of providing crack to a cocaine addict. Aside from medication, there are many other techniques which can be employed to provide better self-regulation, in you, or your child/teen.

I became deeply interested in serving adults with ADHD in 2002, working in college mental health. Despite excellent graduate training, I didn't know much and taught myself through readings, trainings and CHADD conferences (Children & Adults with ADD). Treating ADHD requires a little different stance from many other mental health issues - I use my Cog-Beh toolbox with coaching add-ons. Adults with ADD / ADHD are my people, and college students with ADHD have a special place in my heart.

I use advanced computer software that accurately measures attention through a computer game. Images are flashed on the screen and a clicker is used to measure your responses. Results can’t be faked and the test is able to accurately identify if you have ADHD or not. To learn more about computerized ADHD testing or to schedule a formal evaluation, call my office at (904) 615-8643. I will be happy to discuss the testing process with you. My testing fee is very reasonable.
