What has everyone's experience with therapy been like? I feel like the therapy I go is nothing like it's portrayed in popular media.

I often just feel like I'm talking to a wall. I guess I was hoping that my therapist would engage me a bit more and try to offer potential solutions or activities that I could do to improve my RSD/anxiety/ADHD symptoms.

Cognitive behavioral therapy worked for me. Very interactive and helps you figure out how to handle your brain and ridiculous thoughts

My therapist focuses on specific techniques and systems for improving my life with ADHD. She also specializes in adult ADHD. Definitely not a blank wall.

I need recommendations for a good ADHD specialist! Especially one verses in adult ADHD.

Where are you?

Don Baker in Seattle is great. He does individual sessions, as well as run group classes. Really helped me understand how ADHD affects me (both strengths and weaknesses) and also learned a lot of tactical tips. Looks like he also offers classes online now!
