Are you having trouble paying attention at work? Do you need help studying in school? Are attention issues affecting your relationships?
If you have said to yourself, “I think I have ADHD,” or wondered if you need medication and/or therapy for symptoms associated with ADHD (Adult Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), please contact us to learn more about an evaluation for ADHD. If you were diagnosed in the past with ADHD by a psychologist, psychiatrist, or neurologist, we can provide medication management.
ADHD can cause significant issues at work, school, and interpersonal relationships. Many individuals have difficulty living up to their potential because they have such problems as chronic lateness, missed appointments, and lack of motivation. Symptoms can include executive functioning issues, dysfunction in the brain’s reward pathway, the inability to properly modulate and regulate emotions, and issues with time perception. As a result, these symptoms can derail careers, ambitions, and relationships, which can then lower self-esteem.
Getting Evaluated for ADHD:
Our providers can assess your symptoms to determine if you meet the criteria for a diagnosis of Adult ADHD (ADHD is the official medical term for the condition- regardless of whether the individual demonstrates symptoms of hyperactivity).
When evaluating for ADHD, we simultaneously evaluate and rules out other medical and psychological issues that can cause attention issues. We also evaluate for a host of co-occurring disorders that can accompany Adult ADHD.
If you are in therapy already, we can provide psychiatric medication consultation, and will work with your current therapist and providers in a collaborative team approach. We are committed to careful individualized medication selection and fine-tuning of dose and timing for each patient.
What are the common ADHD Symtoms?
We can offer state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary treatment approaches to Adult ADHD. These include comprehensive diagnostic examinations, medication management, neuropsychological & psychoeducational evaluations, ADHD coaching, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family therapy.
The estimated prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among adults is up to 5%. We are committed to prescribing medications (when clinically appropriate) while minimizing the potential for abuse and adverse effects. Medication is only one tool to address symptoms associated with Adult ADHD. Other interventions may include dietary modifications, sleep hygiene, skills coaching, exercise, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and behavioral modification.
For college and graduate students suffering from ADHD and/or learning differences, our team consists of trusted psychologists in the area who can perform neuropsychological and psychoeducational assessments required by standardized testing agencies and universities for ADHD test accommodation determinations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
By seeking effective treatment from an experienced professional, you can improve your symptoms and overcome many of the challenges of ADHD.
