ADHD Counseling: What's included? How does it progress?
Call Jim at 301 575 4533
We will work together to help you live more productively and enjoyably with ADHD - and develop ADHD coping skills.
First, we explore possible ADHD/ADD symptoms to assess if ADHD is the right diagnosis. If desired, we may consider a visit to a medical doctor to explore whether medication may be desirable. We also work together to develop and prioritize goals: What issues need to be resolved? What skills improved? How could your life be better?
Second, we focus on achieving relief from any painful depression, anxiety, guilt, and shame which frequently accompany ADHD. This is especially important if many difficulties have been endured prior to recognizing the ADHD.
Third, we work on developing organizing skills and coping skills for task avoidance, procrastination, interpersonal skills, clutter, time management, etc.
Fourth, we focus on continuing support for maintaining good coping skills, decision-making, positive attitude, confidence, self esteem, and better relationships.
My organizinational expertise is quite useful as we discover and build upon strengths, and develop strategies to become more efficient and successful at home, at work, and in relationships.
My vocational expertise is useful in assessing skills, interests, and experience to explore new career strategies that may be a better fit, opening the door to more satisfaction and success! Choosing a career and friends wisely is key to success with ADHD.
Think you may have ADHD? Do you struggle with relationships, work, or school? I encourage you to contact me to explore better coping strategies and a better life.
