Myers Counseling Group is pleased to present part two of our three part series on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Today’s article, Is It Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or …? explores coexisting diagnosis that could go along with an ADHD diagnosis.  Our last article in the series will present information on treatment options and strategies for work, home, and school.

We have also included our latest practice updates. We have information and links to our blog, group updates, and video’s. We are still looking for contributors to our new blog, Young Adult Perspective. This blog will include insights and observations from Young Adult’s on Mental Health, Substance Abuse and age specific challenges  through their writings, poetry, and art. If you know of a young adult who would like to contribute, please contact us.
We are going to start our Children’s Therapy Group in later fall or early winter. Times and dates will be announced. Go to our Services page on our web site to find out more details.
