Do you grow out of ADHD?
You don't grow out of ADHD. Your symptoms change as you get older and you also probably get better at masking and coping with them. ADHD is a condition that impacts the executive functions in your brain. You can navigate the symptoms but there is a fundamental difference in the physical structure of your brain that causes you to operate differently at the core.
Why am I just noticing this now as an adult?
You may have managed your symptoms just fine until you:
- Started college
- Got a new job
- Got married
- Had children
So now what?
Therapy for ADHD helps us get a better understanding of how your brain works. But we don't treat the diagnosis, we treat YOU. We treat the imposter syndrome, we treat the rejection sensitivity, and we find your strengths and we use them.
Individual Therapy for ADHD
We learn about the diagnosis and how it has influenced your life thus far. We also work with the shame and guilt that comes along with the diagnosis. Especially for those of you who were not diagnosed as children.
Couple Therapy for ADHD
If you are reading this, you probably already know that either you or your partner (or both of you) have ADHD. So on top of all the things that a couple goes through we are going to throw in this neurodivergent wrench that makes everything that much more difficult. The dynamic between partners when there is a mental health diagnosis can shift to that of a parent-child which can spell doom for your relationship.
I can offer education, support, empathy, and techniques to use in your life and relationship that allow you to grow stronger as a couple.
Group Therapy for ADHD (coming soon!)
Group therapy can offer support and connection that cannot be achieved in an individual session. It also offers a level of accountability to attend appointments and stay on track with your goals. You can learn what has helped others and realize that you are not alone in your struggles.
BONUS! Group therapy is a more affordable option. The structured CBT for ADHD group has a start and stop date. Read this article in Psychology Today regarding this group structure designed by Mary Solanto, Ph.D.
Please contact me if you are interested in group. I will keep your name and email with the next start date. There is an evening time slot available! Sessions start @ $25/session.
