When Do You Need a Psychiatrist?
Is it ADHD, or are you simply energetic or Type A? It’s not easy for the average person to diagnose, and it can be even harder to discern whether it’s ADD vs. ADHD. Not all who have ADHD as an adult had recognizable symptoms as a child. As with any psychological, emotional, or physical disorder, it’s important to determine the seriousness by getting professional help. You definitely want to seek counsel when the disorder negatively impacts your life.
The doctor at our ADHD mood and behavior center can perform a comprehensive evaluation. Review the following symptoms below to see if they apply to you. When they’re interfering with your enjoyment or success in life, you could be dealing with ADHD.
- Impulsive Behaviors
- Disorganization & Problems Prioritizing
- Poor Time-Management Skills
- Problems Staying on Task or Focusing
- Trouble Multitasking
- Excessive Activity or Restlessness
- Low Frustration Tolerance or Short Temper
- Frequent Mood Swings
- Problems Following through & Completing Tasks

Some Causes of ADHD in Adults
You’re not simply “hyperactive” or disorganized. There’s much more to ADHD than can be observed. In fact, the disorder involves brain chemistry differences and genetics. Studies indicate that genes may play a role in both ADHD and ADD. Though environment and developmental problems may contribute to the disorder, they are not the only cause.
To that end, we offer holistic adult ADHD treatment to address the issue. By prescribing various medications, we alleviate the symptoms and bring life back into focus. From that point, counseling helps our patients develop proper coping, cognitive, and behavioral skills that they can use in their daily lives.
