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.

Articles about Professional Help
How Therapy Can Be Hazardous to Your Marital Health - Speech by William J. Doherty, PhD
This speech, given in 1999 at the Smart Marriages Conference, can be found at http://www.smartmarriages.com/hazardous.html. I highly recommend it for anyone considering counseling as Doherty provides good perspective into finding an effective marriage counselor. In addition, the site at which the article is posted points to other useful marriage and counseling resources.
