What is adhd?

The classic symptoms of ADHD include

  • Impulsiveness.
  • Disorganization and problems prioritizing.
  • Poor time management skills.
  • Problems focusing on a task.
  • Trouble multitasking.
  • Excessive activity or restlessness.
  • Poor planning.
  • Low frustration tolerance

Only a licensed mental health professional can diagnose you with ADHD after getting a history of you and your symptoms. We will discuss this in our initial consultation.

How Is your therapy different?

Conventional Wisdom treats ADHD with a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication. If you are seeking medication, I have a list of providers that are accepting new clients and that I trust. They only provide medication to those in therapy.   I devised Situational Therapy for ADHD through collaboration with clients who either could not tolerate stimulant medication, wanted to pursue non-pharmacological interventions, or were already on medication and not seeing any change.  Situational Therapy for ADHD focuses on providing instruction on how to change situations that lead to procrastination, low-frustration tolerance, and self-loathing. My ADHD clients often know exactly what they need to do in order to make changes. I show them how to do it.  

Rates and insurance

I offer financial scholarships where I will subsidize up to 70% of the cost of therapy for those in financially difficult situations. To qualify you must attend an initial consultation and verbally request a scholarship  My hourly rate is $200 per hour. I do not submit claims on your behalf, but I will take care of the paperwork for you to submit your own insurance claims.
