I was diagnosed with ADHD in my teens and struggled with my ADHD for many years.
As a Life Coach who also specializes in ADHD , I want you to know that you are not alone in your journey. I can help you manage and improve on: impulsively, distraction, emotional self-regulation, focus, decision-making, time management, procrastination, self-negative talk, low self-confidence, and anxiety. These challenges can create a negative thought that you can not accomplish your life, family, education, or career goals. As a team, we collaborate to improve your awareness and identify challenges and habits that have stalled your life, career, family, or personal relationship.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults and work with the following issues: ADHD , anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, childhood sexual abuse and assault, domestic violence, oppositional defiant behavior, LGBTQIA+, and life transitions.
Life is not easy, and at times, it can be difficult to navigate. Often, we try to navigate it ourselves because we are resilient and have seen ourselves get this far. However, sometimes having someone who can assist us in navigating our life can make it much easier. I’m Ulma Romero Garcia, an LCSW practicing in California, and I have a passion for helping others find the spark that they’ve always had inside and heal. I’m glad that you are here today and are taking the first step to take care of yourself and your mental health.

My greatest strength and professional interest as a therapist is working with adults from an interpersonal, psycho-dynamic perspective assisting men and women to gain insight and understanding of how their early relationships and emotional experiences have influenced behavioral/relational patterns impacting them today. I assist people in making self-determined changes in their lives in the areas of thinking, feeling and behaving: the three primary components of the human being and how each is expressed and manifested in relationship to others. Spirituality is supported and integrated as my clients are personally inclined.

I have helped many adolescents and young adults facing similiar challenges. You may notice nervous energy or episodes of intense stress that lead to decreased enjoyment in life and feeling depressed. Every person needs help sometimes, and it takes courage to acknowledge it when that person is ourselves. I've helped many young people in the same place that you're in.

ADHD Therapists

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

You should seek treatment for ADHD if you consistently have difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that interferes with your daily life. Symptoms of ADHD include the inability to sustain attention during tasks, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, being easily distracted, frequent fidgeting or squirming, and talking or interrupting excessively. If these symptoms interfere with your career, academics, or relationships—for example, consistently failing to complete professional projects on time—you should seek an evaluation for ADHD.

How does treatment for ADHD work?

Effective treatment for ADHD often consists of medication, behavioral therapy, and lifestyle changes. Stimulant medications such as Adderall and Ritalin work by altering levels of neurotransmitters in the brain; higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine are known to improve attention and focus. Therapy works by helping people with ADHD understand the condition, discuss their areas of difficulty, and develop behavioral strategies to manage their symptoms. In some cases, modifying one’s diet and exercise can also help improve symptoms.

Are there specific medications for ADHD?

Medications to treat ADHD are generally stimulants, the most common are Adderall and Ritalin. There are two categories of stimulants: Amphetamines include Adderall, Dyanavel, Vyvanse, and Dexedrine, and methylphenidates include Ritalin, Concerta, Daytrana, Focalin, Quillichew, Quillivant, and Metadate. Non-stimulants and antidepressants may be used as an alternative if stimulants aren’t effective or viable for a particular patient.

How long does treatment for ADHD take?

It’s tough to give an exact time frame because everyone varies. In terms of medications, stimulants begin to work very soon after you take them, generally within the hour. It may take time to identify the right medication and dosage, but the medication itself is fast-acting. In terms of therapy, it takes time to develop skills and put them into practice, but you will likely see improvements within a few weeks or months.
