What are the Symptoms and Effects of ADHD?

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects how the brain works, making it challenging to control particular impulses or behaviors. Symptoms include attention difficulty, hyperactivity and impulsiveness which can create daily challenges. When these symptoms are not addressed, and without learning ways to manage them, it can dramatically reduce your quality of life.

We recognize that elements of your day-to-day life may be affected, from your self-esteem, friendships and academic/work performance issues to your overall health or relationship conflicts. It is a chronic condition that often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood.

When we sit down with you to help you or a loved one manage an ADHD diagnosis, we start with one important question: How is ADHD impacting your life? Your response helps us to uncover any underlying issues so we can help you feel less limited in your abilities.

Your Treatment Plan is as Unique as You Are

We always begin with an assessment to develop an individualized treatment plan. It is an essential tool for both you and your therapist as it documents the goals and objectives you want to achieve in therapy. Our team works thoroughly to create a treatment plan that works best for you, keeping you and your therapist on track and assess your progress. You will be an
active participant not only in the assessment, but the treatment planning process as well.

Self-care practices can be part of your treatment plan too. We will help guide you towards the best path to practice mindfulness, such as looking at your nutrition, enhancing your time- management skills or identifying any negative, self-defeating thoughts or beliefs you have to lessen the impact on your mental health.

For Parents

Our team provides a welcoming and confidential space for a parent or caregiver of a child with ADHD*. We provide education regarding the diagnosis and its symptoms and encourage parents and caregivers to play an active role in their child’s treatment journey. You will also be welcome to join our community of parents/caregivers who support one another through understanding and empathy. *We currently diagnose and treat adolescents and adults.
