WHAT IS ADD & ADHD?
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are mental health conditions that often appear during childhood and may continue into adulthood. Each can cause minor to significant impairments and disruptions in day-to-day life, including complications in home, school, and work environments.
ADHD – which most often is diagnosed in children before the age of 7 – can cause inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsive behaviors. As adults, those same individuals may not experience as much hyperactivity, but they may still suffer from ADD, which can cause disorganization and an inability to focus on task completion.
Though it is possible to offset or compensate for the symptoms of ADD and ADHD, many children and adults with these conditions experience difficulty regulating emotions, feelings of insecurity, sensitivity to criticism from others, and a lack of motivation. Some may feel excess stress due to differential treatment from family, friends, peers, and authority figures. Individual, family, and group counseling may improve the quality of life of people with ADD and ADHD, making it possible to manage symptoms and reach one’s maximum potential. Our therapists at Wellsource Group can help. We offer telehealth and in-person counseling sessions in Cypress and Kingwood. Contact us today.

HELP FOR ADD AND ADHD
There are many challenges associated with ADD and ADHD, but those obstacles do not have to define your life. ADD and ADHD are no match for the education and support available from counseling, which can help you manage your symptoms and even use them as a platform of empowerment and self-assurance. Instead of viewing ADD and ADHD as learning and behavioral hindrances, counseling may show you how these conditions can work to your advantage.
For more information about how counseling may help with ADD and ADHD, contact our office to schedule an initial visit. Adult, child, or adolescent ADD and ADHD counseling could be an invaluable tool for overcoming your symptoms and moving forward with your life in confidence.
