Jacqueline V. Cohen LPC, CPCS, NBCCH
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, specializing in Reproductive and Maternal Mental Health—and this includes ADHD. So many women have struggled throughout their lives unaware they are living with ADHD. It is common that through the educational and often enlightening process of learning about their child’s ADHD diagnosis, they too have ADHD.
When I work with women who have gotten diagnosed with ADHD or want to explore if the diagnosis fits what they experience, my approach is with an interactive three-part BioPsychoSocial Model:
- Bio includes an educational understanding of how their brain works;
- Psycho includes an exploration of how demoralization, due to un-diagnosis or misdiagnosis, can affect how they see ourselves; and
- Social includes an understanding of how our culture’s social expectations and media representations of women and mothers can impact how we believe we are “supposed” to be.
