Although loveable and engaging, relationship issues are often a concern for people with ADHD. At the same time, parent-child conflicts are common and failed marriages more frequent in families dealing with ADHD.
We Help You and Your Partner Overcome the Unique Challenges of Having a Partner or Child with ADHD
Several ADHD traits that can contribute to relationship problems between family members including:
- Chronic lateness.
- Poor Anger Control.
- Poor listening skills.
The challenge is to find ways to minimize daily problems related to ADHD and to reduce conflicts in the family so that there is more opportunity to enjoy the positive side of ADHD.
ADHD doesn't only affect an individual, but also everyone in close relationship to them. Conflicts can be frequent between husband and wife and between parent and child.
The key to reducing the destructive impact that ADHD can have on family relationships is to help family members change their communication patterns so that they can listen to and better understand one another. Better communication, with increased understanding is the first and most important step toward constructive problem solving at home.

Couples Counseling Testimonials: What Clients Are Saying About ADHDpc.com
You saved our marriage: it was all but dead. We tried everything to save our marriage, it was all but dead.
We both wanted to make it work, but everything we tried failed.
This process has changed our love, relationship and commitment to each other and our marriage, I would personally recommend therapy for couples that want to save their relationship. J. J, Washington, DC.
The first 2 years were miserable, and the future seemed bleaker … I left the marriage. Joe and I had been married for two years and we were unhappy already. That loving feeling was long gone. Instead, we fought all of the time. Although I pleaded with Joe to go to counseling, he refused.
Time after time again we tried to repair the marriage on our own, but it always ended up much worse. In the end, there was verbal - and, yes, even - physical abuse, and an affair. Hopeless, I left the marriage.
He began counseling without me, and asked if I would come. At first, I refused. However, guilt, overcame me (I am Catholic after all), and I wanted to be able to tell others that I had tried. Once I began to see some sincere changes in Joe, I decided to give it an earnest attempt.
For the last five years, we have been happily married. I love my husband more than when we took our vows. I’ve rediscovered my soul mate, and we our pregnant. I am thrilled to know our daughter will be born into a happy home. Thanks! J & S, Burtonsville, MD.
Much to our surprise, we re-ignited the flame. I hadn’t felt love for my wife in at least 6 years. In fact, it was well beyond not loving her, I couldn't stand being in the same room with her. All we ever did was fight. We didn't care if the kids were standing right there, we would just sling mud at each other.
Knowing the damage we were doing to our kids, I came to a counselor for the sake of the kids. I never expected Heather and I to find each other again. We resolved our conflicts, forgave each other and re-ignited the flame we once felt towards each other. Thanks a million. Jack & Heather, Bethesda, MD.
Despite being separated, we learned how to create win/win situations that helped us regain - and keep - our marriage happy. We had been living separately for over a year and a half. Both of us had accepted divorce as the next step. We decided to give it one last chance before we filed.
Our counseling experience was life altering. The breakthroughs were unbelievable, yet seemingly simple. Feelings surfaced that we hadn't been expressed in years. There were so many unexpressed resentments and hurts that we were both holding on to. I thought we would never work through them.
Our counselor was very candid and direct with us. We laughed, cried and grew to understand each other. Ultimately, we learned how to create win / win vs. win / lose or lose/lose scenarios. We remain very happily married to this day. J & B Harris, Columbia, MD.
We had wasted a lot of money with marital counselors. But the marriage 'tune-up' worked. Our Marriage therapy saved our dead marriage. We had been to several counselors and were only getting worse.
You were great, so easy to talk and it felt like you had known us forever. I felt so comfortable the second we met. I was so nervous to go because we had already spent so much money on counselors. It was hard to trust your 'we only need a marriage tune-up' approach.
However, our marital 'tune-up' was worth every penny. We are so in love and plan on staying that way. It is nice to know that your are only a phone call away in case we run into a problem. It was an awesome experience. David and Mary, Wheaton, MD.
