Starting ADHD therapy

What is ADHD therapy?

At Thriveworks, we offer ADHD therapy, which is an effective treatment for managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms such as inattention, inability to sit still, and lack of self-control. It can be used as an alternative to ADHD medication or used in tandem.

How does ADHD therapy work?

ADHD therapy works by using behavioral interventions — focusing on helping the individual develop organization skills, improve time management, and work on adaptive behaviors. A range of therapies are effective in helping people manage their ADHD and, sometimes, both individual and family therapy are important, particularly when the individual with ADHD symptoms is a child.

Symptoms of ADHD

Common symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Inattention and difficulty focusing on tasks
  • Impulsivity and acting without thinking
  • Hyperactivity or restlessness

Can ADHD develop as a coping mechanism?

ADHD is not a coping mechanism—but is instead affected by both genetics and environmental factors. The skilled therapists at Thriveworks in Ashland, VA know how to treat the unique triggers and stressors that may influence the severity of someone’s ADHD symptoms.

Can someone with ADHD lead a normal life?

Yes—many individuals with ADHD live successful, ‘normal’ lives. Individuals with ADHD are not abnormal.

What kind of therapy is best for ADHD?

Common approaches to ADHD therapy include medication management, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, and parent training.

Is ADHD counseling conducted in person or online?

ADHD counseling is conducted both in person and online, depending on the individual’s preferences and their therapist’s availability.

How long does ADHD counseling last?

The length of ADHD therapy can differ based on individual requirements and treatment objectives, spanning from a few weeks to several months or extending further, contingent on progress and personal needs.

Understanding ADHD

ADHD manifests in two primary ways: inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. Individuals with ADHD may struggle with:

  • Wandering off task
  • Difficulty remaining focused
  • Disorganization
  • Constant movement and fidgeting
  • Excessive talking
  • Making hasty decisions without considering the consequences
  • Struggling to delay gratification

Common Symptoms of ADHD

ADHD symptoms can vary but often include:

  • Overlooking or missing details
  • Problems maintaining attention for extended periods
  • Difficulty listening and following through with directions
  • Trouble organizing tasks and activities
  • Avoiding tasks that require sustained mental effort
  • Frequently losing things
  • Being easily distracted by unrelated thoughts or stimuli
  • Forgetfulness
  • Inability to sit still and be quiet in structured settings
  • Interrupting conversations or activities

If you or your child displays these symptoms, it is essential to seek an evaluation from a licensed medical professional. ADHD can be identified as early as three years old and may continue through adulthood, affecting academic, professional, and personal relationships.

ADHD Treatment and Therapies

While there is no cure for ADHD, various treatments can help manage symptoms and improve daily functioning. These treatments include medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of both.


Medications, particularly stimulants, are commonly used to reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity in individuals with ADHD. These medications help improve focus, work, and learning abilities. Finding the right medication and dosage may take time, and it is crucial to monitor for side effects and effectiveness.

Therapy Types

Several therapies can address ADHD symptoms:

  • Psychotherapy: Helps individuals understand and manage their thoughts and behaviors.
  • Behavioral therapy: Focuses on modifying behavior and developing coping strategies.
  • Family therapy: Assists families in understanding and supporting their loved one with ADHD.

Therapists at Thriveworks in Hanover can help individuals develop tools to remain focused, mindful, and attentive, significantly enhancing their quality of life.
