Difficulty focusing, restlessness, and impulsive behavior are some of the hallmarks of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a common neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children and adults. If you or your child have these symptoms or have already been diagnosed with ADHD, our psychiatrists and psychologists can help. As ADHD specialists, we help you or your child manage ADHD.

Treatments

We offer a full range of therapy options, from individual and group therapy to parent and family therapy. We also offer therapy groups for adults and for adolescents in middle school and high school.

Individual and Group Therapy

Individual and group therapy is available for children and adults with ADHD. In both cases, our specialists work with you or your child to identify your treatment goals and give you the skills you need to overcome the challenges of daily living associated with ADHD. Children and teens have specific needs in behavioral therapy, and our therapy options can be tailored to each developmental stage. We teach learning techniques and skills to help youth overcome the challenges in schooling, friendships, and family relationships that are often associated with ADHD.

Family Therapy

When treating young children with ADHD, we often recommend therapy that directly involves parents, either individually or in groups. We teach parents the necessary skills to support your child and improve your child’s behavior at home. These parenting skills can also help children and families get along better and reduce stress in the home.

Medication

If a medication such as Ritalin, Adderall, or Concerta is recommended to help control symptoms of ADHD, our psychiatrists will work closely with you to ensure proper use and monitor for any side effects.

Tests

Comprehensive Evaluation

If you experience ADHD-related symptoms but have never been evaluated for the disorder, a comprehensive evaluation can help you understand if you may have ADHD.  You leave the evaluation with specific treatment recommendations to address your concerns and a timeline for getting started with either medication or therapy.
