You are most likely here because you, maybe your partner or your child, feel sad, overwhelmed, anxious, discouraged and/or struggle with lack of direction in life. You are taking an initiative to find help. Imagine coming to a safe place where you are able to freely explain why are you seeking treatment, what is the presenting problem and how does it impact you and your relationships? We would work together to better understand how stressful events in your life affect your mood and how a particular treatment approach might help. We would monitor together and discuss the progress of your treatment.

“Mental health is not a destination, but a process. It's about how you drive, not where you're going" (Shpancer, Ph.D.). Each of us is on a personal journey striving to be our best selves. Sometimes, these journeys can leave us feeling unequipped to navigate their rough terrain. For most, this is the human experience. While we can't escape the realities and emotions of this experience, we can certainly learn more effective ways to cope. We can find ways to be gentler, more loving, and kinder to ourselves so that we may share this with our loved ones and our community.

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.
