Adult ADHD is not what people think it is. ADHD is not just about being "hyper" or "spacey" - it is much more than that. ADHD involves some common core problems, (such as issues with executive functioning (planning, memory, flexibility), and emotion regulation), but also impacts each person individually. I am trained and licensed as a Professional Counselor, and am a Professional member of Children & Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD). I am also currently training to be an ADHD Coach. ADHD coaching is a collaborative process wherein/whereby we take a nonclinical/nontherapeutic approach to identifying how ADHD manifests in a person’s life, how it is holding us back, and how we can develop strategies to mitigate.
I will offer more information here soon, but in the meantime, below are some links to national resources:
- The worlds leading adult ADHD organization is the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA). They provide resources for both individuals struggling with ADHD, as well as tools for clinicians.
- Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) has an excellent informational and resource rich page for Adult ADHD
- ADDitude magazine has a "Living with Adult ADHD" resource page
- Visit my Facebook page for updated and ongoing resources and articles for Adult ADHD.
