I see kids through elder adults and mostly deal with depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, and loneliness. I also deal with Family Mediation and Divorce, Civil Mediation and Healthcare/Medical Arbitration and kids whose parents are having a hard time. Additionally, I see vets who are graduates of Iraq and Afghanistan with PTSD and other problems. On the Career side, I do career counseling and assessment to assist people in figuring out what they want to do when they grow up. I specialize in assisting people, help themselves.
Kids and adults with ADD/HD, Asperger’s and other spectrum disorders involve not just the affected, but the whole family. Do we only deal with the affected child or do we deal with the so-called normal family members? My understanding of the family process shows that we need to teach the family how to deal with the frustration, anger and aggravation that those who manifest this malady can cause. Parents who have children with ADD/HD, and Spectrum Disorders have a higher incidence of Divorce and anger. My job is to explain what is going on and offer methodologies to assist the family and the affected how to cope and move on successfully. Success comes with the knowledge that the family is learning how to deal with the manifestations of these disorders and showing the affected the same love that is given to all.
