Treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Do you or a loved one recognize these symptoms of Attention Deficit /Hyperactivity Disorder?

Symptoms include:

  • Mind and/or body are never at rest
  • Difficulty paying attention, including not listening to others (distractible)
  • Restlessness
  • Disorganized
  • Forgetting
  • Arguing
  • Difficulty making plans or following thru on tasks
  • Daydreaming/spacing out
  • Often loses important items
  • Accused of being bad, stupid, or lazy

ADD is not only debilitating for the individual, but equally debilitating for family members. Life is chaotic. Family members feel: overburdened, resentful, angry, hurt, and ignored. There may be constant struggles over control, leading to frequent endless arguments which don’t resolve anything,

I have found that traditional psychotherapy is not sufficient to address ADD. My approach includes: education, creating strategies and coping skills, and exploring barriers to overcoming issues typical of ADD. I provide a focused goal oriented therapy which may include meeting with the spouse, and including them in the treatment plan. Feel free to schedule an initial consultation.
