ADHD Therapist

When you were a child, how many times were you told that you're just being lazy? That you're no good, or you just need to try harder - even though you're already trying three times harder than most people? That kind of programming takes its toll.  It can turn into depression or anxiety in adulthood.  These and other co-existing conditions make it hard to take action until we deal with them.  Psychotherapy can address the underlying feelings that can keep you from moving forward with the changes you want in your life. 

There's a lot of overlap between coaching and therapy.  They both involve helping professionals who listen deeply and ask insightful questions to help you see things differently.  You'll gain clarity and solve problems with both approaches. But in general, therapy focuses more on feelings while coaching focuses more on action. An ADHD coach might interrupt you and try to get you right to the point. In contrast, an ADHD therapist might dig a little deeper and let you process the emotions that inevitably arise during a session. Those feelings are important - they're often the root of what's keeping you stuck. That said, Beth uses a solution-focused approach with all her clients, at least to start.  Solution-focused therapy and coaching are nearly identical: create a vision of the solution you want to create, and bridge the gap between that and where you are now. We can go deeper if we need to. This is the beauty of working with a coach who is also a therapist.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Beth Main provides psychotherapy in addition to ADHD coaching. She brings a decade of experience as an ADHD coach, and a passion for helping people with ADHD uncover their unique brilliance, to her work as a therapist.
