Terry Huff LCSW
If you are excessively worried about the future, hopeless about your life, derailed by a loss, or overwhelmed by what you think should be manageable, you may benefit from psychotherapy or other services that I offer - or services other professionals offer that I can recommend.
Most of my clients are adults with ADHD who need a sensitive helper and a network of resources. I lead a support group and offer workshops for ADHD adults. I have over twenty years of experience working with attention disorders, mood disorders, and marriage problems.
I embrace diversity and respect all individuals needing help. Memberships include CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD), ADDA (The Attention Deficit Disorder Association), and NASW (The National Association of Social Workers). I subscribe to a strong code of ethical standards. (Click here to read the Code of Ethics of NASW in its entirety.)
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, or "talk therapy", is a way to treat people with a mental disorder by helping them understand their illness. It teaches people strategies and gives them tools to deal with stress and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy helps patients manage their symptoms better and function at their best in everyday life.
Sometimes psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment for a person, depending on the illness and its severity. Other times, psychotherapy is combined with medications. Therapists work with an individual or families to devise an appropriate treatment plan.
