Those with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder have unique challenges that go beyond what traditional therapy provides. You might struggle with paying attention, keeping organized, feeling restless, feeling overwhelmed, feeling as though you are missing something, and maybe feeling like you’re never good enough.
Aside from this, you might also have difficulty slowing your mind down, and may feel sad, depressed, angry or misunderstood. You can be anxious because you find even small tasks overwhelming. You try hard to meet others’ expectations and often are told to try harder, or that you are doing things wrong, or you need to pay attention.
Living with ADHD can be tough, but it can also be rewarding. Those who have ADHD are often very intelligent, are creative in nature, have a great sense of humor and feel emotions more intensely than those without.
In order to embrace these awesome qualities, it helps to learn how to tackle all your needs. Your clinician will help you understand and manage your emotions, learn how to complete tasks and organize your life in a way that works for you, recognize how ADHD and messages from others impacts your self-esteem, and learn to take charge of your life.

ADHD Coaching is different from therapy as sessions are focused on goal setting, accountability, and action. Meetings are very focused on creating a plan for the week based on your desired overall goal, such as planning an upcoming event, cleaning up an area of your living or working space, organization, studying, preparing for an assignment or work deadline or additional needs. In addition to therapy, coaching can be an effective and supportive means to making greater improvements in your life.
