ADD/ADHD Counseling

We all know kids who can’t sit still, who never seem to listen, who blurt out inappropriate comments, or don’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them.

But did you know that a fourth of marriages have a partner who has undiagnosed ADHD, making it frustrating and difficult to work through most marital issues, work issues and parenting? Treating a marriage or work related issues without treating the ADHD can lead to a lot of unnecessary frustration and turmoil. 

Daydreaming, acting without thinking, inattention, impulsivity, and often the inability to sit still are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. ADHD makes it difficult for a person to inhibit their spontaneous responses, including everything from movement to speech to assertiveness.

Symptoms can include:

  • Have trouble staying focused or get easily distracted
  • Hyperfocusing
  • Appear not to be listening when spoken to
  • Constantly fidget and squirm
  • Talk excessively
  • Act without thinking
  • Interrupt often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time
  • Have a quick temper or “short fuse” or emotional dysregulation
  • Interrupted sleep
  • Problems connecting with others
  • Poor memory
  • Substance abuse or other addictions

These frustrations can later lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family. Treatment can make a dramatic difference in your child’s or partner's symptoms.
