Understanding ADHD

Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder are two related mental health disorders that affect millions of Americans and even more around the world.

Where we used to believe that a child was spirited or inattentive in school, we now know that Attention Deficit Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder may be to blame.  This fundamental change in our approach to working with these children has created revolutionary change and better success starting from a young age.

ADD and ADHD don’t only affect children though.  Both of these disorders are life-long and can affect people well into adulthood.  While each stage of life presents its unique challenges, living with ADD and ADHD can be manageable.

Using therapy as a tool to help you live with the symptoms of ADD and ADHD can dramatically change your life.  Our ADD and ADHD therapist specialists are trained to understand the complex nature.

What are some of the benefits of seeking therapy when you have ADD or ADHD?
A therapist is specially trained to help you better understand your life, relationships with yourself and others, and to build coping skills to better deal with life’s ups and downs.
