Do you have a buzzy brain? Have you ever wished you could make just ONE of those million ideas jumping in your brain hold still long enough to make it actually happen? There’s a therapist in Oakland who knows how you can.
Would you like to:
- dissolve the shame about getting bored with everyday chores? You can. You can use your interests and enthusiasm to fire you up and knock off chores too.
- trust and expand your own strategies for managing tasks? You can. (Much easier once you stop trying to do it the “right” way!).
- stop losing track of time, overestimating how much you can do and ending up always late ? You can. You can get to know your energy levels and learn how to match them with activities.
- understand why symptoms of depression and anxiety often accompany ADHD, and how to reawaken your optimism? You can learn this.
- learn to take care of the basics: sleep, food, exercise, money, emotions, and your different types of energy, instead of shorting them because they are boring? You can.
- pile up accomplishments instead of feeling so bad about all the projects you started and then abandoned? You can.
What if you could learn WHY you have trouble with these things, and what if you knew that it’s not your fault (or your parents’ fault)? What if you had the tools to manage these things, instead of thinking bad things about yourself?
Sidney Mullen is a therapist in Oakland who works with adults with ADHD. She combines years of therapy practice, the soul of an artist and extensive specific understanding of how ADHD affects every aspect of life. Never been diagnosed? She does that too.
She also works with neurotypicals, not just neuro-unusual people. Occasional bouts of depression and anxiety that fade after a day or so can be normal responses to things that happen, but when they are intense, out of proportion to the triggers, lasting for days and weeks, you will want to talk it over with an experienced therapist, someone other than a friend or family member.
