Counseling For ADD & ADHD

ADD/ADHD Therapy

At Evolve Therapy Group, we understand the unique challenges that individuals with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) face in their daily lives. Our specialized team of therapists is here to provide comprehensive support, guidance, and strategies to help individuals with ADD/ADHD thrive and reach their full potential.

According to the Psychiatric Association, An estimated 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults have ADHD (Danielson, 2018; Simon, et al., 2009).

Types of ADD/ADHD

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), also known as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that can significantly impact daily functioning and quality of life.

Inattention: Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty sustaining attention, staying focused on tasks, and organizing their thoughts. They may struggle with following instructions, completing assignments, and maintaining attention to details. They may also have a tendency to become easily distracted or forgetful.

Hyperactivity: Hyperactivity refers to excessive and often inappropriate levels of physical activity. Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty sitting still, constantly fidget, or feel a constant need to move. This hyperactivity can manifest as restlessness, excessive talking, or an inability to engage in quiet activities.

Impulsivity: Impulsivity refers to acting without thinking or considering the consequences. Individuals with ADHD may have difficulty controlling their impulses, leading to impulsive decision-making, interrupting others, and difficulty waiting their turn. They may also struggle with regulating their emotions and may have a tendency to react impulsively to situations.

ADHD is a complex disorder that can impact various aspects of an individual’s life, including academic performance, work productivity, relationships, and overall well-being. However, with proper diagnosis, understanding, and support, individuals with ADHD can learn to manage their symptoms effectively and lead fulfilling lives.

If you suspect that you or someone you know may have ADHD, it is recommended to seek a comprehensive evaluation from a qualified healthcare professional or mental health provider who specializes in ADHD. They can provide an accurate diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment plan that may include therapy, medication, and other interventions to help manage symptoms and improve daily functioning.

“Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is one of the most common childhood neurodevelopmental disorders.” Cleveland Clinic, 2023.

Our Approach to ADD/ADHD Therapy:

At Evolve Therapy Group, we take a personalized and holistic approach to ADD/ADHD therapy. Our therapists are experienced in working with individuals of all ages who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. We utilize evidence-based techniques and interventions to address the specific needs and challenges associated with ADD/ADHD. Some of the approaches we employ include:

  1. Psychoeducation: We believe that knowledge is power. Our therapists provide psychoeducation to individuals with ADD/ADHD and their families, helping them understand the nature of the disorder, its impact on daily functioning, and the available treatment options.
  1. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is a widely recognized therapeutic approach for managing ADD/ADHD symptoms. It helps individuals develop effective coping strategies, improve time management and organizational skills, and address negative thought patterns that may contribute to difficulties in attention and focus.
  1. Skill-Building: We focus on building practical skills that can enhance daily functioning and improve overall well-being. These skills may include time management, organization, planning, goal-setting, and self-regulation techniques. We also work on improving social skills and communication strategies to support healthy relationships.
  1. Mindfulness-Based Techniques: Mindfulness practices, such as meditation and breathing exercises, can be beneficial for individuals with ADD/ADHD. These techniques help improve attention, focus, and self-awareness, reducing impulsivity and increasing overall well-being.

What are the Benefits of ADD/ADHD Therapy?

  1. Improved Focus and Attention: Therapy provides individuals with ADD/ADHD the tools and strategies to improve their ability to focus and sustain attention. By learning effective coping mechanisms and organizational skills, individuals can enhance their productivity and success in various areas of life.
  1. Enhanced Executive Functioning: Therapy helps individuals with ADD/ADHD develop executive functioning skills, such as planning, prioritizing, and problem-solving. These skills are crucial for managing tasks, setting goals, and achieving success in academic, professional, and personal endeavors.
  1. Emotional Regulation: Individuals with ADD/ADHD often struggle with emotional regulation. Therapy provides a safe and supportive space to explore and address emotional challenges, develop coping strategies, and improve overall emotional well-being.
  1. Improved Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence: By addressing the challenges associated with ADD/ADHD, therapy can help individuals develop a stronger sense of self-esteem and self-confidence. As individuals gain a better understanding of their strengths and abilities, they can overcome self-doubt and embrace their unique qualities.
  1. Healthy Relationships: Therapy can support individuals with ADD/ADHD in developing and maintaining healthy relationships. By improving social skills, communication strategies, and self-regulation, individuals can enhance their interactions with others and foster more meaningful connections.
  1. Advocacy and Support: Therapy provides individuals with ADD/ADHD and their families with valuable resources, support, and advocacy. Our therapists can assist in navigating educational systems, accessing appropriate accommodations, and connecting with community resources.
