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.

ADHD often doesn’t just encompass problems with attention, concentration, and/or hyperactivity and restlessness. Common struggles in those diagnosed include feelings of anxiety, depression, questioning one’s abilities, a long history of low self-esteem, difficulties in relationships and/or work, and feeling as if one is not achieving to their full potential. Those who are diagnosed often lament a life that could have been. I help people process these feelings and learn how to manage challenges.

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.

I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, so I understand how ADHD isn't just about "squirrel brain." It's how much you might call yourself lazy or not motivated enough, especially if you feel like other people are doing better than you. Or feel stuck in a loop of focusing and then feeling like you can't get started on something because it's just too big of a task. Or feeling like people don't understand when you try to talk about how ADHD impacts you. These are things we can work on together.
