implementing strategies - identify obstacles and disruptions, intention into action
People with ADHD are highly intelligent and imaginative, deeply empathic, passionate, creative and quite gifted. But those gifts can go unrecognized, get miscontrued, or in some ways even punished. Symptoms of ADHD are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions like anxiety or OCD. While various conditions certainly do co-occur, people can spend years self-blaming and criticizing their symptoms as character flaws or personality traits. ADHD is neurobiological. ADHD is genetic, based within the central nervous system, and absolutely not a shortcoming. Our therapists are here to help you manage and overcome ADHD challenges while gaining more confidence, self-acceptance, and fulfillment.
