ADD and ADHD Counseling and Therapy
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), ADHD is prevalent in approximately 5 million children or 9% of U.S. school-age children. While more common in children, ADD/ADHD can extend into adult years, with many adults not diagnoses until adulthood.
Studies have shown that ADD/ADHD affects the executive functioning of the brain — the way the brain activates, organizes, integrates and manages other functions. According to Dr. Brown, a prominent ADHD researcher, those with ADHD have impairment with executing function resulting in difficulty organizing tasks, motivating, motivating a neutral emotional state, applying working memory and recall, as well as regulating actions.
Our therapists have experience working with both adults and adolescents who experience poor executive functioning connected to ADD/ADHD symptoms.
