What is ADHD Therapy?

ADHD therapy focuses on addressing the impact ADHD can have on who you are and how you think about yourself.

Without a comprehensive understanding of ADHD and how it can impact your whole life, therapy can be ineffective, frustrating, and even damaging. Because we know the pain that comes with these feelings, we offer specialized, trauma-informed therapy for those with ADHD.


EMDR is a specific therapy that leverages the brain’s ability to heal by creating opportunities to process painful and traumatic memories in a way that helps you gain new perspective, insight, understanding, and positive beliefs about yourself and what you’ve been through.

EMDR is the only therapy proven to create new and adaptive neural-networks in the mind, allowing real, lasting change and healing to happen quickly and effectively.

EMDR for ADHD can help those with ADHD who have been through traumatic experiences not only process and work through them, but also come out the other side with reduced or eliminated symptoms, significantly increased resilience and accurate self-perception.

Our licensed therapist, Noelle Lynn, is currently pioneering the use of EMDR to improve ADHD symptoms. This is done by processing the negative beliefs and experiences those with ADHD have about themselves so the brain is no longer stuck in unpleasant memories and beliefs.

Is ADHD therapy right for you?

Research has consistently found those with ADHD are more likely to experience some form of notable trauma in their lives.

  • Painful memories
  • Family challenges
  • Addictive tendencies
  • Relationship issues
  • Problems at work, school or home
