Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a condition that negatively impacts one's capacity to sustain proper attention and focus. ADHD symptoms often obstruct educational, occupational, and interpersonal productivity and performance. This too often severely hampers the realization of objectives, resulting in one feeling trapped or somehow inadequate. The resultant displeasure and regret can decrease self-assurance and even produce comorbid anxiety and depression.
Dr. Tyson works with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that is grounded in the assessment and management of ADHD. He has extensive expertise in providing specialized care in both psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatment modalities that reduce indicators of ADHD.
ADHD treatment can involve a variety of options, including the use of stimulants and non-stimulants. Every patient is different, and what works for one person may not work for you. It is important to recognize that a wide range of medications have demonstrated effectiveness in providing relief of ADHD.
Persons with ADHD have frequently endured many years struggling with untreated symptoms. This often has resulted in a mix of healthy and unhealthy forms of coping skills. Dr. Tyson will build upon those coping skills that are healthy and helpful, so that the patient can help preserve and cultivate them. Of equal importance, Dr. Tyson will help the patient determine which are unhelpful, and are in fact unhealthy coping mechanisms, striving to eliminate these.
