Some Common Questions:
ADHD therapy with me is a personalized approach. For some, it could look like time management and organizational skills. For others, it may look like exploring self talk, self belief, and rejection sensitivity.
It’s completely normal to have questions about your mental health! In our therapy sessions, we can explore your experiences together. If it seems like ADHD might be a possibility, I can guide you towards resources for a formal diagnosis if you wish to pursue that. Formal diagnosis is NOT necessary for our work together.
Seeing progress in therapy isn’t always a linear process. You may notice some improvements early on, while other changes might take longer. It largely depends on your unique situation and how you respond to therapy. ADHD affects everyone differently, and so the therapeutic journey is unique to each individual. However, many clients begin to see shifts in their perspective and behavior within a few weeks to months of consistent therapy.
No, while medication can be a helpful part of a comprehensive treatment plan for some individuals with ADHD, it isn’t necessary for everyone. There are many different ways to manage ADHD symptoms, including therapy, lifestyle modifications, and behavioral strategies. If you’re interested in exploring medication options, I would encourage you to consult with your primary care physician or a psychiatrist.
It’s okay to feel overwhelmed, it’s a normal reaction, especially when considering therapy. You’ve already taken the first, and often the most challenging step: recognizing you need support and seeking it out. In therapy, we’ll start by understanding your unique experience and creating a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your feelings at your own pace.
