Living with ADD/ADHD can be challenging. ADD/ADHD is often simplified as a disorder of forgetfulness and/or hyperactivity. However, the biochemical differences in an ADHD brain have much wider implications and can lead to other frustrating symptoms, such as:
Emotion dysregulation (being labeled as “too sensitive” or feeling quick to anger/frustration)
Difficulty remembering details of conversations
Trouble planning out steps of projects or assignments
Difficulties in personal relationships and/or group conversations–Inaccurate time estimation, leading you to be late or not start projects on time
As a therapist who specializes in working with clients who have ADHD, I work with individuals to learn more about the root causes of ADHD and what they can do to manage their symptoms and feel productive again. Therapy is often a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and skills training.
Several times a year, I offer a six week ADHD skills training and support groups for adults.
Topics covered include:
Understanding the biochemical differences in the brain with ADHD
Time Management and Prioritization
Self care techniques to help manage symptoms
How ADHD can affect relationships
Using mindfulness to help control symptoms
