ADHD/ADD affects more than just a person's school or job performance. ADHD/ADD can cause serious problems for couples in which one or both are diagnosed with ADHD/ADD. Emotional outbursts, forgotten birthdays, poor decisions, and/or lost or forgotten items can all cause tremendous friction between couples. At the Bay Area Center for Couples Therapy we have specialist who are trained in both couples and ADHD/ADD therapy. This unique combination allows us to help couples deal with the affects of ADHD/ADD on their relationship.
At the Bay Area Center for Couples Therapy, we work with our couples with ADHD/ADD using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), a highly effective form of couples therapy. When a relationship is going well, you feel you can turn to your partner and they will be there for you as well as feeling loved and accepted by your partner. When relationships aren't going well, we may feel like our partner isn't there for us when we turn to them to discuss our needs or when we need them for support. We may not even feel like they really love or accept us. With EFT, we can help change this as well as help you develop tools for communication.
