ADHD can negatively effect school, work, and and your personal life. I have found many of my clients suspected that they may have ADHD, but have simply pushed through life, doing the best they could, but always having to work so much harder than others. I would like to help you or your loved one find success through ADHD counseling. Please give me a call to start!

Curt Matzenbacher
Licensed Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
Licensed Associate Counselor

I utilize play therapy with children starting at age 2 to learn the skills necessary to slow down and pay attention. I also address issues that may be co-occurring with the attention or impulse control problems, such as anxiety or depression. By creating an environment in which the client feels safe to express themselves while maintaining structure, I am able to create a place wherein the child can learn coping and assertiveness skills while remaining true to him or herself. With adults, I use talk therapy along with "assignments" for use throughout the week that allow the client to practice the skills learned in therapy in the real world.
