Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention (not being able to keep focus), hyperactivity (excess movement that is not fitting to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur in the moment without thought).

At NuVista Mental Health, we understand that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is more than just a cluster of symptoms; it’s a complex condition that can significantly impact every aspect of life. Our comprehensive approach to ADHD therapy is rooted in a deep understanding of the disorder and its myriad presentations, from childhood through adulthood.

What Is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention (not being able to keep focus), hyperactivity (excess movement that is not fitting to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur in the moment without thought). ADHD is considered a chronic and debilitating disorder and is known to impact the individual in many aspects of their life including academic and professional achievements, interpersonal relationships, and daily functioning (Harpin, 2005). ADHD can lead to poor self-esteem and social function in children when not appropriately treated (Harpin et al., 2016).

Adults with ADHD may experience poor self-worth, sensitivity towards criticism, and increased self-criticism possibly stemming from higher levels of criticism throughout life (Beaton, et al., 2022). Of note, ADHD presentation and assessment in adults differs.

An estimated 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults have ADHD (Danielson, 2018; Simon, et al., 2009). ADHD is often first identified in school-aged children when it leads to disruption in the classroom or problems with schoolwork. It is more commonly diagnosed among boys than girls given differences in how the symptoms present. However, this does not mean that boys are more likely to have ADHD. Boys tend to present with hyperactivity and other externalizing symptoms whereas girls tend to have inactivity.

Our Multifaceted ADHD Treatment Approach


Our tailored psychotherapeutic interventions are at the heart of managing ADHD. We specialize in various forms of talk therapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and supportive psychotherapy. These methods are instrumental in addressing core symptoms of ADHD, as well as co-occurring conditions such as anxiety disorders and borderline personality disorder.

ADHD Coaching

We recognize that coping strategies, time management, and organization are significant hurdles for those with ADHD. Our coaching programs focus on developing these essential life and social skills, enhancing self-esteem, and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Medication Management

Properly prescribed and monitored ADHD medication can be a game-changer. Our mental health professionals are experts in finding the right balance to manage symptoms effectively without significant side effects, ensuring each patient’s treatment is as unique as they are.


As leaders in ADHD treatment, we offer neurofeedback – a groundbreaking therapy that trains the brain to improve concentration, problem-solving skills, and learning abilities. This method has shown remarkable results, especially in children with ADHD and adult ADHD patients.

Support Groups and Family Involvement

ADHD doesn’t just affect the individual; it impacts family members and loved ones. Our support groups provide a nurturing environment for sharing experiences and strategies. We also educate and involve family members in the treatment process, enhancing the support system at home.
