What is ADHD?
Those that have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or “ADHD” for short, find it hard to concentrate on the different areas of their lives.
They generally have other symptoms that do not allow them to function or fit in with others. A lot of times, this can come in the way of performance at work or school.
Johnnié Sanders, an LPC with Healing Hearts Counseling in Montgomery, Alabama, understands that everyone comes from different walks of life and not every condition is easy to live with.
She provides a comfortable, quiet area for those that have this condition and are seeking help.
When you come in to talk, she will focus on solving the problem and reducing the symptoms that come with it. This is to ensure that the person is able to live a normal, happier life.
“I prefer to distinguish ADD as attention abundance disorder. Everything is just so interesting… remarkably at the same time.” ~ Frank Coppola
Management of the symptoms of ADHD oftentimes comes with medication, while this may help for some, others may wish to try a different approach or chose to include therapy as well.
Symptoms of ADHD
Keep in mind that ADHD can happen in children, teens, adults and even seniors.
