ADHD Help, Therapy, and Support for Children and Parents

Comprehensive ADHD Treatment from Experienced Therapists that Specialize in Childhood Behaviors and Family Counseling

We live in a society that does not have the proper resources for those living with mental health challenges. That is especially true for people with ADHD. At Long Island Counseling Services, we provide therapy and counseling for ADHD, including the children and adults who struggle with the condition and the parents of those with ADHD that may need extra help.

If you or someone you love would benefit from ADHD treatment on Long Island, contact Long Island Counseling Services today to meet with one of our therapists. We have two offices, one in Melville, and a new one in East Meadow (we have since moved from our office in Bellmore) for meeting in person. Our ADHD therapists can also work with you remotely if you are located anywhere within the entirety of NY.

Long Island ADHD Therapists to Help You Work Through Challenges

ADHD, or “attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,” is a neurodevelopmental disorder that typically affects children, but can also affect adults. It is a condition that makes it difficult to pay attention for long or short periods of time, and causes behaviors that can be seen as disruptive, impulsive, or distracting.

ADHD is also incurable, though some children will grow out of it once they reach their teenage years. It can be very effectively managed through medication. But even with medication, ADHD can be difficult – both for the person with ADHD and for those that love them. That is because our world is not always a safe space for someone with ADHD. They are at risk for developing conditions such as:

  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Trouble Maintaining Relationships
  • Getting in Trouble in School
  • Falling Behind
  • Anger/Frustration
  • Anxiety and Depression

There are also few resources for parents. Parents of children with ADHD may find themselves with their own challenges and needs as they adapt to the requirements of raising a child with the condition. 

Here at Long Island Counseling Services, our ADHD specialists work with children and adults with ADHD, as well as parents and family members that may need support raising their child. Children with ADHD frequently go on to lead amazing, productive lives. But first, it becomes important to address the mental health challenges that they may struggle with, and have ways to cope more easily with stresses and setbacks.

How Do We Treat ADHD?

ADHD is typically treated through medications, available from a psychiatrist. What we can do here at Long Island Counseling Services is give you additional tools to help you or your child:

  • Learn to cope with challenges they may face.
  • Recognize how to control emotions.
  • Regulate anxiousness, stress, and self-esteem issues.
  • Feel motivated to continue to succeed in school or work.
  • Maintain better relationships, including friendships and family bonds.

We use treatments that include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoanalytic theory, mindfulness, play therapy, and more, all to make sure that you and your child get the best possible mental health care. Our Long Island ADHD therapists are also here to provide a listening ear. We have counselors that understand that, even though ADHD isn’t something that can be “cured,” it doesn’t have to hold you back from leading the happiest, most content life you have available.
