Welcome to Aligned Minds Counseling and Therapy: Transformative Support for ADHD Empowerment

At Aligned Minds Counseling and Therapy in Edmonton, we understand that the journey with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is unique for each individual. Our counseling and therapy services are crafted to empower and support those navigating ADHD, fostering a neurodivergent-affirming approach that recognizes the value of diverse minds.

Understanding ADHD:

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental condition that manifests in persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. These symptoms, though challenging, can be effectively navigated with the right support and strategies.

Common Symptoms of ADHD:

  1. Inattention: Difficulty focusing, forgetfulness, and being easily distracted.

  2. Hyperactivity: Restlessness, fidgeting, and a constant need for movement.

  3. Impulsivity: Acting without thinking, difficulty waiting, and interrupting others.

Impact on Day-to-Day Life:

Living with ADHD can present unique challenges in various aspects of daily life:

  • Academic and Work Performance: Difficulty maintaining focus and completing tasks.

  • Interpersonal Relationships: Challenges in communication, organization, and time management.

  • Emotional Well-being: Struggles with emotional regulation and self-esteem.

Neurodivergent Affirming Therapy:

Aligned Minds embraces a neurodivergent-affirming therapy approach, recognizing and celebrating the diversity of cognitive processes. We believe that neurodivergence is a natural and valuable aspect of human variation.

Key Elements of Our Neurodivergent-Affirming Therapy:

  1. Strengths-Based Perspective: Identifying and building on individual strengths rather than focusing solely on challenges.

  2. Cultivating Self-Acceptance: Encouraging positive self-image and embracing neurodivergent identities.

  3. Respecting Individual Differences: Tailoring therapy to meet the unique needs of each individual.

Incorporating Evidence-Based Modalities: CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness:

Aligned Minds integrates evidence-based modalities into our neurodiversity-affirming approach, enhancing the effectiveness of ADHD treatment.

1. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT):

  • Identifying and challenging negative thought patterns.

  • Developing practical skills for managing ADHD symptoms.

2. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT):

  • Incorporating mindfulness and emotion regulation techniques.

  • Addressing impulsivity and emotional challenges associated with ADHD.

3. Mindfulness Practices:
