PsychologyToday.com – Psychology Today keeps a large list of providers that is helpful because it is sortable by zip code, specialty and health plan.  Look for specialists who say they diagnose ADHD, who practice CBT or in some other way indicate that they have more than a “passing interest” in ADHD.  When you call them, find out what proportion of their practice is devoted to ADHD.

GoodTherapy.org – this website has a lot of information about choosing a therapist as well as an extensive list of therapists that can be sorted geographically and by specialty.  Note that to find an ADHD therapist you have to go into “Advanced Search” and choose “Inattention…ADHD”  Like the PsychologyToday resource, you’ll want to make contact to verify that the person has a specialty in ADHD.

Google – You may find someone by Googling ‘adult ADHD’ or ‘ADHD couples’ and your location. 

Social Media - There are several ADHD pages in Facebook and Twitter, plus many groups.  This Facebook Group is for those with an ADHD spouse, written in English and Spanish.

 

*To reiterate:  We cannot and do not know what sort of experience you will have with the professionals listed here, and offer no guarantees that you will have any specific outcome with them.  We offer this list of suggested professionals only as a service to the many adults who contact us asking for further information about professionals who know about adult ADHD and its impact on relationships.
