ADD/ADHD Counseling

We work with teens and adults with ADHD.  Often times individuals with ADHD are creative, imaginative and passionate people.

Teens with ADHD may feel overwhelmed by school challenges and have a hard time completing school work.  They may be easily distracted in and out of class and be prone to stress when having these difficulties.  Their grades may reflect this, but sometimes we see them overcompensate and stay up to all hours in the night to achieve the same grades as their peers.

Adults and ADHD

Although it may seem like symptoms begin in early childhood, in some cases, ADHD is not recognized or diagnosed until the person is an adult.  These adults may find it challenging to complete work tasks on time and to maintain good time management skills.

While it’s normal for kids to forget their homework, daydream during class or act without thinking; inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.   

Some children with ADHD may be constantly in-motion, bouncing off the walls and disrupting others around them. Other children with ADHD may sit quietly, with their attention miles away; they may be easily distracted and have trouble finishing tasks.

Teens or Adults with ADHD may:

  • Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
  • Have poor time management skills
  • Appear not to be listening when spoken to
  • Display low frustration tolerance
  • Constant need to be moving and feel restless
  • Talk excessively
  • Act without thinking
  • Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
  • Feel disorganized and have trouble prioritizing
  • Have a quick temper or “short fuse”
  • Poor planning skills
  • Difficulty coping with stress

Symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity can be due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. Individuals who can’t focus or manage plans and time, tend to get distressed from these struggles. These frustrations can lead to low self-esteem, difficulty with friends and family, anxiety, and depression.   

Treatment can make a dramatic difference in the distressing symptoms. With the right support, individuals can get on track for success in all areas of life.
