Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

5 reasons why ADHD may be the wrong diagnosis

5 reasons why ADHD may be the wrong diagnosis

ADHD is frequently overdiagnosed. I call it that “lazy clinician label.” Most clinicians point to ADHD when they lack the appropriate knowledge to decipher between two similar disorders, medical conditions, or a complex diagnostic history. Even for adults, ADHD has become the catch-all term for adults struggling with attention, hyperactivity, or inattentiveness. But the reality is that ADHD can often look like the following disorders:

  1. Bipolar disorder (manic symptoms)
  2. Substance abuse
  3. Withdrawal symptoms from drugs or medications
  4. Depression
  5. Anxiety
  6. Phobias
  7. Personality disorders
  8. Autism Spectrum Disorders
  9. Mental Retardation
  10. Problems of life!

As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
