Frequently Asked Questions
+ I think I have ADHD or ADD, what should I do?
If you suspect you may have ADHD or ADD, the best course of action would be to schedule an assessment. This can help you learn more about your symptoms and develop a plan to manage them. For more information, check out our ADHD Assessment page.
+ Is there a difference between ADHD and ADD?
Often the term ADD is used interchangeably with ADHD because ADD was the earlier informal or popular term for this condition identified in the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-5” as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). There are three types of ADHD identified depending upon whether the presentation is predominantly: (1) inattention marked by symptoms of inattention, distractibility, and day-dreaming; (2) hyperactivity (experienced primarily as restlessness in adults) and impulsivity; and (3) the combined type. The term ADD is, also, used by adults with ADHD, who present primarily with symptoms of inattention but lack the hyperactivity.
+ What can I expect from an ADHD assessment?
An initial assessment involves two to three 50 minute sessions where you’ll receive an in-depth interview with a clinical social worker or psychologist. You’ll also be offered a self-report questionnaire to fill out. More in-depth testing might be necessary depending on the complexity of your presentation. For a more in-depth look at assessment, please visit our page.
+ What can I expect from a counseling or coaching session?
Counseling will allow us to help you identify and understand your ADHD symptoms. During sessions we will offer strategies and practical solutions that you can apply to your everyday life.
+ Do you offer couples counseling?
Yes, we offer a couples workshop and couples counseling, where you and your partner can better learn how to manage ADHD in your relationship.
+ Do you offer group coaching?
Yes. Group counseling or coaching, led by our team of professionals, can be an effective way to learn more about how ADHD affects your life and to share strategies and experiences with others.
+ What do I do if I need accommodations?
Current psychological testing is often required for clients who are applying for reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). Accommodations are useful to help minimize the impact of a disability in the workplace, in a university setting or while taking standardized tests such as the LSAT, GRE, GMAT or MCAT. Our clinicians provide detailed evaluations that can assist with this process.
+ What are your fees?
Assessment sessions are $225.00 each. Two to three sessions are required.
Ongoing coaching or psychotherapy sessions range from $190 to $225 depending on length of session and type of service.
+ Do you take insurance?
Most of our clinicians do not participate with any insurance companies, but services may be partially or fully reimbursed by your company. You would pay the full fee at your session, and a receipt is provided to you to send in to your insurance company. Two of our clinicians accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO Plan only, but have very limited availability and hours.
+ How can I pay for services?
Cash, check or credit cards, including Health Savings Account credit cards, are accepted for payment.
+ What is the age range of your clients?
Our network of clinicians has experience working with adult clients age 18 and up, including senior citizens.
