Adult therapy at the Chesapeake Center focuses not only on feelings, but also on daily life management and problem solving.
We work with adults on improving their ability to manage their time and organize their life, and also on relationships and career / workplace concerns. Often, when working with an individual adult, we may encourage their partner to join the therapy at times in order to engage in collaborative problem solving as well as to hear the partner’s point of view about how things are going at home and in the family.
Our approach is a practical, solution-focused approach to psychotherapy. Our treatment approach focuses on feelings and relationships, but also helps individuals to better manage their daily lives, better understand how they are affected by ADHD and co-existing conditions. We help our patients learn to make life decisions that will support them in functioning at their best. Our clinical director, Dr. Nadeau has worked closely with her Adult Team to teach them this unique approach that blends the psychological with the practical.
Our psychotherapy focuses on self-concept, self-confidence, stress management, money management, daily life management, relationship issues and daily issues in on-the-job functioning. We also help parents learn to approach ADHD as a family, to better support all family members affected by ADHD and to find solutions to the daily conflicts that so often occur between parents and children with ADHD.
