Therapy for Adults with ADHD in Ontario

Are you tired of trying to stay 'on-top' of things?

Maybe you recently got a diagnosis or you're questioning whether you might have ADHD. Perhaps it's feeling like there's never enough time in a day to get it all done or your life feels like it's spinning out of control. You might feel like a walking contradiction, like you're driven, passionate and maybe even perfectionistic but the opportunies to catch a breath feel far and few between lately. 

Whatever it is that you're experiencing, you're beginning to notice the impact of this in every facet of your life:

  • Questioning yourself and wondering how other people seem to 'do it all'.

  • Judging yourself if you notice you weren't paying attention. 

  • Lacking energy to engage in tasks you need to do, let alone things you really enjoy.

 

Therapy for ADHD can help.

It may feel impossible now, but you can regain a sense of control over your life. You can feel less overwhelmed. You can feel more balanced. And we can help you find ways to get there.

Therapy for ADHD helps you do 3 things:

  • Find new ways to deal with life in a way that makes sense for you.

  • Access the supports you need, including to obtain a psychiatric assessment for diagnosis & pharmaceutical recommendations.

  • Develop skills to manage emotions and overwhelming thoughts.

We'll help through this process, tailoring each step to your unique needs and circumstances. Our approach to therapy for ADHD comes from a place of understanding: believing that life can be overwhelming and sometimes we need to find new tools to cope with the challenges we're facing.

Let's take this next step together.
