Adult ADHD Counseling
Do you find it difficult to stay focused? Do you often feel overwhelmed? Do you procrastinate, and later beat yourself up over it, again and again? Does ‘slowing down’ cause you distress? Do you get bored easily and often? Do you find yourself constantly reaching for the next cup of coffee, or the TV remote, or your phone, or skip from one website to the next, needing to stay in motion by constantly “doing something?”
What is Adult ADHD?
ADHD is not relegated to teens and children. ADHD is neurological; it is not a mental illness, and it does not require you to be hyperactive (relatively few adults with ADHD suffer hyperactivity). Most importantly: If you struggle with ADHD, it is not your fault! As one prominent ADHD authority suggested: ADHD is no more your fault than nearsightedness is the fault of those who wear glasses. And yet, sadly, many undiagnosed ADHD adults never come to realize and accept their own “neuro-diverse” reality. Too often, when such adults view their difficulties as character deficits, or unexplainable flaws, they become susceptible to self-shaming, and a negatively distorted self-image that stands to worsen throughout adulthood.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Symptoms

- Symptoms of inattention
