ADHD Services

Kids Aged 4 - 11

Does your child have trouble keeping her hands to herself, or is she constantly instigating fights with a sibling? Does your child routinely lose homework and personal belongings? Does he have big emotions that seem out of his control? Are homework, chores, grades, behavior, and lack of motivation your go-to themes for frequent lectures that go nowhere? Do consequences and punishments just not seem to work, at all?

If you are nodding your head along with me, you may be at your wit’s end.

Teens Aged 12 - 19

Does your teen struggle in ways that diet changes, tutoring, or getting stricter at home do not have any effect? Have you tried practicing “tough love” by allowing them to fail and hoping they learn from their mistakes, only to find that they continue to make the same choices with the same outcomes repeatedly? Are homework, chores, grades, attitude, and lack of motivation your go-to themes for frequent lectures that go nowhere?

Parent Coaching

Parenting is hard! ADHD is a whole family issue: it impacts the parent/child relationship, as well as relationships with siblings and friends, and it affects school satisfaction and performance.

Using an authoritarian parenting style results in the inevitable power struggle, with only one party (the parent) “winning” and the other (child) being told what to do, and often resisting or only complying in exchange for a reward. The parent feels frustration and resentment over having such a “difficult” child and the child feels sad and angry and out of control. The cycle continues, unless you are willing to try something different.
