Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder of the brain’s ability to sustain focused attention while it competes with an interest-based nervous system. I bet you relate to the following:

  • You have been referred to as “lazy” or “not meeting potential”
  • You lose things often and repeatedly
  • You have trouble getting started on a task unless really motivated or reminded
  • You are easily bored and/or experience mood swings
  • You may be blamed for the chaos of the family (i.e.: vacations, holidays)
  • You have great ideas but difficulty carrying them out

ADHD affects relationships, self-image and perceived success.  We know ADHD is best helped when addressed in a multimodal, collaborative manner, attending to all elements of a person’s life.

 

My Approach

I feel strongly that ADHD is best approached with a strength-based model.  My unique approach was inspired by the work of Dr. Edward Hallowell, where clients learn to accept ADHD symptoms and themselves, building on strengths and communicating with self-advocacy.

We start with unresolved emotional issues from the past, like how your family of origin shaped your self-image. EMDR is an efficient way to put to rest harmful core beliefs adopted in those early years.

 

Coaching

I recognize that indefinite therapy for ADHD is unnecessary.  I created the second phase of my approach to focus on cognitive coaching so that we can focus on organizational and motivational goals.

Remove the burden from your spouse or parent by using ADHD coaching to focus on non-therapeutic issues like task management, organization and follow through.
