Therapy for ADD/ADHD Adults and Adolescents

ADHD Counseling for Adolescents and Adults: Overcoming the Challenges

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) encompasses both the inattentive symptoms of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and the hyperactive-impulsive symptoms. Individuals can exhibit a combination of both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms, leading to a diagnosis of  Adolescents and Adults with ADHD.  

Adolescents and Adults with ADHD may experience a range of symptoms, including difficulties with attention and focus, impulsivity, hyperactivity, executive functioning challenges such as disorganization, and poor time management. These symptoms can cause anxiety while significantly impacting various areas of life, including work, school, relationships, and overall well-being.

Counseling for Adults and Adolescents with ADHD aims to address these challenges by providing support, psychoeducation, and strategies for managing symptoms effectively. I work with adolescents and adults with symptoms of ADHD, aiming to address these challenges by providing support, education, and strategies for managing symptoms effectively. I will develop a personalized treatment plan, explore and identify coping mechanisms, and provide guidance on improving attention, organization, and self-regulation.  

If you struggle with these symptoms, seeking counseling to understand and manage your symptoms may benefit you. I can help you navigate the challenges you face and support you in developing strategies for success.  

Adolescents and Adults with ADHD often encounter the following challenges:

  • Difficulty staying focused: You may find it hard to concentrate on tasks, frequently getting distracted by external stimuli or your own thoughts. This can significantly impact their productivity and ability to complete work or other responsibilities.

  • Impulsivity: Adolescents and Adults with ADHD may struggle to think before acting, often making impulsive decisions without considering the consequences. This impulsivity can lead to difficulties in personal relationships, financial management, and even legal issues.

  • Restlessness and hyperactivity: Many Adolescents and Adults with ADHD experience a constant sense of restlessness and a need for movement. They may have difficulty sitting still, often fidgeting or finding it challenging to relax in calm environments.

  • Poor time management and organization: Adolescents and Adults with ADHD often struggle with time management, finding it challenging to prioritize tasks or meet deadlines. They may also have difficulty organizing their physical space or remembering important details.

  • Emotional regulation: Adolescents and Adults with ADHD may have difficulty managing their emotions, often experiencing intense mood swings, irritability, or difficulty controlling anger. These emotional challenges can impact their relationships and overall well-being.

If you or someone you know is facing these ADHD-related struggles, seeking counseling can be incredibly beneficial.
