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 may have difficulty understanding or naming your feelings or recognizing other’s feelings. 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.

Our clinicians have advanced training in working with ADHD and other neurodiverse learning presentations. We see each person uniquely and our goal is to further understand your challenges and strengths to help highlight your strengths in return, helping to overcome and work through challenges.
ADHD Therapy and Counseling looks at not just the challenges in day-to-day living, but also, the deeper impacts ADHD and neurodiversity have on one’s self-esteem, relationships, communication, understanding of the world, and more. We help those with ADHD and other neurodiverse profiles write their story; understand the impacts and make changes in their life.
Neurodiversity refers to variations from “the norm” in development of sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions. At Denver Metro Counseling, we recognize that everyone’s brains function in beautiful ways and sometimes challenges related to neurodiversity are overlooked by other professionals who do not understand this difference. The term “neurodiverse” is applied to those with ADHD, Autism spectrum, dyslexia, as well as dissociation, bipolar disorder, Tourette’s and more.
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.
