Adult ADHD

  • Do you often lose your keys, cell phone, glasses? 

  • Do you have difficulty finishing things? 

  • Do you procrastinate? 

  • Do others complain you don't remember things? 

Here is what clients said about ADHD testing:

Easier than I expected, the testing process, I mean. Aphrodite explained everything on zoom. I didn't even have to go to the office or anything. She emailed me the assessment. It took me a little over 30 min to complete it. Everything worked great. My doctor got the results the same week and started me on medication. Finally! My brain works again!

Thank you for finding the time the same week we called! We appreciate your being so patient in explaining the difference between the simple assessment and the comprehensive assessment and helping us decide. We were happily surprised to see that it was not going to cost thousands of dollars. You made a frustrating situation affordable and very straight forward. Yes, I would recommend your office!

I thought ADHD was for school kids. My nephew has it, he is so ADHD it's crazy! My wife was at her wit's end with me not paying attention to her and forgetting everything. I could never remember what she would ask me to do and she would get mad. My head was spinning. She made me come for counseling because she thought I was depressed or something. You suspected ADHD and when I got tested that was it! The doctor started me on medication and right away, it made a difference. Counseling helps too. The ADHD test saved my marriage! Thank you! My wife is my biggest supporter now, she understands me and wants to help me get my ADHD under control.

I knew I had ADD. I don't know why I didn't get tested before. I guess I wasn't sure where to go. I thought it would be very time consuming and expensive but it was ok. I do both, medication and therapy. For the first time in my life, I feel normal.

I was afraid of the test! I postponed it several times. Not sure why but I thought it was going to show that I was crazy, or something like that. It was actually a really positive experience. It was all very helpful. The report was really long with graphs and everything. Aphrodite explained what each graph meant for me. The verdict is that I have ADHD with Inattentive and Impulsive tendencies. I know the options and I decided that I didn't want medication. I am learning how to manage it. It has changed my life. I am really happy with my decision.

How to schedule for the assessment:

Send us an email to schedule an appointment for ADHD testing by clicking here. 

The assessments are on-line. If you want, you can also arrange for all meetings to be online via TELEhealth. Of course, you can also meet in person.

One test or two?

  • A discussion with your counselor will determine if you need a Simple ADD/ADHD test or if other issues are complicating the diagnosis of ADHD.

  • When symptoms indicate that more information is necessary you will need Comprehensive ADD/ADHD testing and that includes at least one additional testing. You can ask your counselor for more information.

The cost of the Simple ADHD assessment is 280.

The cost of one additional scale for the Comprehensive ADHD assessment is 540. 

The ADHD test(s) is/are on-line. We will send you an email link that you will easily access from your computer at home. You can also decide to take it during your office visit.

The results will need to be interpreted and written into a lengthy report. As soon as your report is ready we will contact you. At that time you can schedule an appointment to discuss the results with your therapist. You may also choose to have the report sent to your doctor's office.

After the assessment:

If you decide to meet with your counselor for a feedback session, you will have the opportunity to discuss the test results, and to ask any questions you need to understand what the diagnosis means for you and your loved ones. Some clients decide to have the results sent to their medical provider for medication support or/and the HR department at their place of work for employment accommodations. 

What does the treatment of ADD/ADHD look like? 

We have found that the best way to treat ADHD is a "multimodal" approach that includes medical, educational, behavioral, and psychological interventions. 

 

The cost depends on the type of health insurance you have (deductible/co-pay, if you are planning on using your insurance). If you plan to pay out of pocket the fee is 80 for each session. You and your therapist will decide how many sessions you may need. 

 

A multimodal treatment may include one or all of the following:​

  1. Counseling (talk-therapy)

  2. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (behavior change therapy) 

  3. Psycho-educational support  (workbook exercises) 

  4. Pharmacological treatment (medication) 

Treatment is unique for each individual. Through a multimodal treatment, you will learn how to manage the symptoms of attention-deficit, and how to improve at work, how to set personal goals, and how to cultivate a sense of happiness and well-being.
