What is Adult ADHD?
Have you ever wondered why it takes you longer to complete tasks compared to others, or why you always misplace your phone and keys, or why you are unable to wind down and relax when you have free time? These are just a few of the Adult Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms that are not always recognized and unfortunately mislabeled as carelessness and laziness or misdiagnosed as anxiety.
ADHD is a highly hereditary disorder that starts at birth and usually continues into adulthood. It is often co-morbid with many other psychiatric illnesses including Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, Eating Disorders and Substance Use Disorders.
I have a particular interest in providing assessments and treatment for adults with suspected and previously diagnosed ADHD. I have significant experience working with patients with multiple psychiatric disorders including:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Illness Anxiety Disorder
Obessive Compulsive Disorder
Womens' Mental Health
Binge Eating Disorder
