We Can Help You With ADHD

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder with a typical onset in childhood, which often persists into adulthood. Inattention manifests as wandering off task, lacking persistence/focus, or disorganization. Hyperactivity refers to excessive motor activity such as fidgeting, tapping, or talkativeness, and impulsivity involves hasty actions. Symptoms produce impairments of personal, social, academic, or occupational functioning. This guide explains ADHD diagnoses and the treatments that can help you thrive. 



  • Inattention and disorganization can include inability to stay on task, seeming not to listen, making careless mistakes, losing materials, difficulty sustaining focus, difficulty managing sequential tasks, easily distracted, forgetful in daily activities, etc. 
  • Difficulties are experienced at levels that are inconsistent with age or developmental level 
  • Not due to defiance or lack of comprehension

Hyperactivity / Impulsivity

  • Hyperactivity can include overactivity, fidgeting, inability to stay seated, and talking when it’s not appropriate 
  • Impulsivity refers to hasty actions without forethought such as intruding into other people’s activities, and an inability to wait, and interrupting others excessively 
  • In adults, hyperactivity and impulsivity may manifest as extreme restlessness, wearing others out with their activity, and making important decisions without consideration of long-term consequences

Since ADHD is largely genetic and neurobiological, symptoms usually show up in childhood or adolescence. Jennee offers a comprehensive approach focused on equipping parents of kids and teens with ADHD. Parents develop an understanding of ADHD, and learn skills and effective ways to respond to the difficulties children with ADHD often face. She helps families improve their interactions around these challenges to decrease parental stress. Jennee provides psychoeducation about the factors that effect your child’s behavior such as the delay and malfunction of executive functioning skill development. She maps out the foundational skills to target in order to lay the groundwork to master advanced executive functioning skills. Jennee also helps families make connections about the relationship between your child’s behavior, social factors, the parent/child relationship, sibling relationship, and parenting. She will help you explore the parenting situations that impact your mood and identify the negative feedback loops that commonly develop with families dealing with ADHD. You’ll get support to develop a consistent schedule and routine to help your family. Jennee also helps parents develop the skills to help their children cope with difficult emotions and how to advocate for your child’s needs at school. ADHD can present several challenges for kids and families, and this process helps them develop the insight and skills they need to develop confidence and secure connection as a family.
