The thing about ADHD is, most of what works for non-ADDers doesn’t work for us.  And most of what works for us is the exact opposite of what works for them.  That’s why so many of us have often been more frustrated during & after a session with a therapist, than we were before it.

WE know what works for us, but the rest of the world keeps telling us THEY know better.  No wonder we’re so frustrated!

It’s not that we CAN’T do those things.  We just need to be allowed to do them our OWN way.

So, if you ask a potential therapist up-front about their expertise with ADHD, and they don’t have any, it’s a pretty clear sign that they’re not the right therapist for you.
