ADHD symptoms can interfere with your academic, career, and social life if they persist unmanaged. We can help!
Do you think you or a family member may have ADHD but are not sure? We are able to conduct all necessary testing to make a proper diagnosis or determine if there are other factors (such as a learning disability or hearing disability) that may be the source of the problem.
We can teach you a set of skills, techniques and methods that will help you effectively manage and even eliminate these issues. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a proven therapeutic approach.
ADHD has nothing to do with intelligence. Many brilliant people also have ADHD and are highly successful because they have learned to effectively manage their ADHD symptoms. Sadly, many people attempt to manage ADHD symptoms with medication alone, only to realize that it is not sufficient. Overwhelmingly, the evidence indicates that although medication is helpful for many people with ADHD, symptoms are best managed when behavior strategies are also developed through therapy.
We can help you incorporate behavior strategies that include indentifying adverse effects of ADHD, picking up on social cues, creating organizational techniques, enhancing listening skills, modifying overactive behavior, and techniques to minimizing impulsiveness and procrastination. We help you experience authentic symptom relief with behavior modification that compliments the benefits you may get from medication.
