Welcome to the Chesapeake ADHD Center

The Chesapeake ADHD Center was founded by nationally recognized, award-winning ADHD authority, Kathleen G. Nadeau, Ph.D.

We have long-standing ties to the Washington-Baltimore community with a reputation for providing the highest quality ADHD-related services, including both assessment and treatment, to clients of all ages.

The Chesapeake Treatment Approach

We view ADHD not as a “disorder,” but as a type of brain with traits that bring both challenges and advantages. Many ADHD traits hold tremendous promise when the challenges of ADHD are well-managed.


Chesapeake Diagnostic Center

Our diagnostic center provides individualized neuropsychological, psychological and psychoeducational assessments. We explain our results in clear, easy to understand terms and continue to work with our clients following testing to help them implement our recommendations.

Chesapeake Treatment Services

Our team of psychologists, psychotherapists, ADHD coaches and professional organizers all work to help our clients achieve their goals. We offer individual, group, couples, and family therapy as well as parent counseling and career counseling.

Because ADHD rarely exists alone, we are prepared to treat all aspects of our client’s psychological and cognitive challenges including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Substance Abuse
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Relationship issues
  • Career issues
  • Executive functioning challenges
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Anger Management problems
  • Parenting challenges
  • Academic challenges

We provide referrals to other professionals, including physicians, as needed. We are happy to collaborate with other professionals that are already engaged in treating our clients.
