Holistic Therapy for ADHD and Associated Mental Health Challenges

Long Island Counseling Services offers specialized therapeutic care for individuals experiencing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) alongside a spectrum of co-occurring mental health conditions. Recognizing the intricate relationship between ADHD and additional psychiatric symptoms, our team of therapists employs a holistic, integrative approach to therapy, focusing on the whole person rather than just the disorder.

The Complex Relationship Between ADHD and Mental Health

ADHD is challenging for those that live with it. Society often doesn’t truly understand or support those that have ADHD, and – depending on how it manifests – many with ADHD struggle socially and/or academically in ways that can cause them additional struggles.

It is for that reason and many others that ADHD often coexists with a variety of mental health issues, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Behavioral Disorders

These co-occurring conditions can amplify the difficulties associated with ADHD, complicating both daily functioning and long-term management. Our understanding of these dynamics informs our therapeutic practices, ensuring a comprehensive approach to care.

Therapeutic Approaches at Long Island Counseling Services

Our therapists at Long Island Counseling Services are skilled in a range of therapeutic modalities designed to address the multifaceted nature of ADHD and its accompanying conditions:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – CBT is effective in addressing the thought patterns and behaviors associated with ADHD and co-occurring conditions, helping clients develop healthier coping strategies and behavioral responses.
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) – MBSR techniques can be particularly beneficial for managing the impulsivity and hyperactivity symptoms of ADHD, promoting greater emotional regulation and present-moment awareness.
  • Psychoeducation – Understanding the nature of ADHD and any co-occurring conditions is crucial for effective management. Our therapists provide clients and their families with comprehensive education about their conditions, empowering them with knowledge to navigate their challenges.
  • Family and Couples Therapy – ADHD can significantly impact relationships. Our therapists offer family and couples therapy to address these relational dynamics, fostering healthier communication and mutual understanding.

 Beyond traditional talk therapy, we recognize the importance of lifestyle factors in managing ADHD and associated mental health symptoms. Our therapists guide clients in exploring and implementing beneficial lifestyle changes, such as exercise routines, sleep hygiene practices, and nutritional adjustments, to support overall well-being.
