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 Cincinnati, OH 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.

Need more help deciding?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder that impacts millions of people in the United States alone. ADHD’s symptoms make it harder for an individual to function in school, work, or relationships. We all have trouble concentrating or paying attention at times, but ADHD seriously impacts the brain’s ability to focus, concentrate, and avoid impulsive behavior.

Children with ADHD express symptoms of the disorder differently from people living with adult ADHD. Children with the condition often have trouble focusing in class, sitting still, and paying attention. Adults with ADHD might have trouble with low self-esteem, procrastination, and difficulty controlling anger. Thankfully, working with a mental health professional can help reduce the impact of ADHD in both children and adults.

If you think ADHD is interfering with your life or the life of a loved one, it could be time to speak to a mental health professional. Consider calling our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Cincinnati, OH, to set up your first appointment.

Most Common ADHD Symptoms

ADHD symptoms tend to fall into two groups: inattentiveness or hyperactivity/impulsiveness. Some people experience the former, some experience the latter, and others live with a combination of the two.

Here are some of the most common ADHD symptoms:

  • Excessive talking
  • Constant fidgeting
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Difficulty staying organized
  • Trouble paying attention
  • Interrupting others
  • Short attention span
  • Little or no sense of danger
  • Difficulty following instructions
  • Avoiding tasks that require focus

ADHD can be difficult to diagnose –– children are generally energetic, have trouble staying still, and might struggle to pay attention in class. ADHD is usually diagnosed when symptoms interfere with normal functioning. Mental health professionals have the skills and knowledge to test for ADHD, diagnose people with the disorder, and create treatment plans to help people manage ADHD.

Does ADHD Treatment Work?

Treatment for ADHD usually involves psychotherapy, medication, or a mixture of multiple treatment modalities. Professionals from Thriveworks counseling can create and implement effective mental health treatment plans to help their clients live happier, calmer lives.

Treating ADHD usually involves a strong focus on therapy to change behaviors. Your mental health professional will work with you or your child to identify problematic behaviors and healthy habits that can reduce symptoms in the long run. Family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, and other therapeutic methods can help you or your child manage ADHD symptoms.

Medication is another vital tool used to combat ADHD. Psychiatrists can prescribe medications to their clients directly. Therapists and counselors can also work with psychiatrists to get a prescription if they think medication could help a client. Of course, medications aren’t suitable for everyone, but they’re an essential component in treating ADHD for some people.

ADHD can get worse over time if left unmanaged. Thankfully, mental health professionals are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Working with a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist can help you or your child live a happier, healthier life. Call our office today to get started –– professionals from Thriveworks Counseling in Cincinnati, OH, can help treat and manage ADHD.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
