Education 

We don't like labels. Our primary goal is to help our patients understand what they have, why they have it and what to do about it.

Medication

We'll be straight with you. When it comes to treating severe ADHD, you can't really get complete remission without medication. We wish it weren't that way. But the right medication, at the right dose, taken the right way can bring dramatic change, allowing people to meet their full potential in life. 

Self Management

But, the truth is, regardless of the medication, no one will get better unless they take some responsibility. We can prescribe a diet or an exercise program, but you have to be accountable for your part of the treatment. It's not fun. it's not easy and it's not fast, but if you really want to optimize your function, you have to have play your part. 

Skill Building

We can't teach you to concentrate, but we can teach skills that will help you manage your life. Those executive skills include, organization, prioritization, lists, schedules, tricks and hacks. You will be amazed how much of a difference it can make, when you combine coaching with medication.

Counselling

No one had a perfect childhood. We observe and mimic the patterns of emotions and behaviours that were modelled for us in our family of origin. Observing and changing those patterns will set you free.

Advocacy

We go to bat for our patients, whether that is in the workplace, at school or against and insurer. People don't often understand that ADHD and Addiction are invisible disabilities.
