See What They Have To Say...

I was very pleased with the relationship that I developed with my therapist.  She was very helpful to me while seeing her and will use her again if ever needed.

Very nice place! My husband and I went to The Calli Institute this week and I was so impressed with everything!  The staff at the front desk is very polite and informative and our therapist, Amanda is incredible!  The atmosphere is very different than any other counseling place we have been and it makes a huge difference.  We plan to return weekly!
- Shauna
I am amazed at how well the staff and nurse practitioner work to help me get my meds and appointments met at a proper and efficient time!

I have been to a bunch of different therapists, but this place is by far the BEST!  It is so comfortable, it is like being in someone’s home!  The staff is very respectful and my therapist, Nicole, is excellent!  I am so happy I found her!

I have been very happy with my care at Calli and felt very comfortable there.  I haven’t been there in a few months, but plan on scheduling an appointment soon.  Thank you for your exceptional care and great facility.

We would not hesitate to recommend Calli.  My wife and I felt very comfortable from the very first call to Calli Institute.  The environment is warm and our therapist was very kind and professional.

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder 

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) used to be thought of as strictly a childhood disorder.  In many cases, children with ADHD do grow out of the disorder as they reach adulthood.  However, some do not which means that adults can also experience the debilitating symptoms of ADHD. 

There are basically three types of ADHD:

  • Inattentive type
  • Hyperactive type
  • Combined type

The most common symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Poor attention to details
  • Being easily distracted
  • Does not seem to listen
  • Failure to finish tasks
  • Trouble organizing activities
  • Procrastination
  • Frequently lose things
  • Forgets activities (appointments, due dates)
  • Often fidgets
  • Difficulty staying seated
  • Feeling driven by a motor
  • Often talk excessively
  • Often blurt out answers or interrupt others

These symptoms need to have been present and caused some degree of disruption before the age of 7 years old.  Diagnosing ADHD can be tricky because many of the symptoms overlap with other mental health disorders.  It can be especially hard to diagnose in adults because it is difficult to fully recall if these symptoms were present as a child.  To help make an accurate diagnosis, we use questionnaires and computerized tests that measure attention and impulse control. 

Treatment for ADHD includes behavioral therapies, coaching, biofeedback and medications.
