Adult ADD/ADHD Evaluation and Treatment

Key Therapy Counseling

Adults with ADD/ADHD that has never been diagnosed are at higher risk for serious mental health problems. Mood disorders, including depression and anxiety as well as substance abuse and addictions, impulse behaviors, and anger outbursts often occur when ADD/ADHD goes undiagnosed and untreated. Many adults who have never been diagnosed grow up with negative beliefs about themselves; feeling inadequate, not smart enough or not good enough. They frequently don't understand how their own brain works or why they do, or don't do, certain things- instead they blame themselves, often leading to low self-esteem and defensiveness.

Although it may be an option, a diagnosis doesn't necessarily mean medication. Your therapist can help you develop healthier habits, understand your process, and develop your unique strengths to reduce frustration and improve day to day functioning.

Common Symptoms of ADD/ADHD in adults include:

  1. Being easily flustered and stressed out.

  2. Irritability or short, often explosive, temper.

  3. Low self-esteem and a sense of insecurity or underachievement.

  4. Trouble staying motivated.

  5. Hypersensitivity to criticism.

  6. Time management issues.

  7. Losing track of your belongings/appointments/focus.

  8. Excessive disorganization
