People who live with ADHD may:

  • Become easily distracted, forgetful, and miss details
  • Have difficulty following directions
  • Become quickly bored with tasks
  • Have trouble completing and turning in homework
  • Fidget and squirm in their seats
  • Talk nonstop

If you think you or someone you love just can’t focus, find help and hope by contacting one of these local organizations.

Stress Management

This is a weekly 8-session course with the purpose of providing information and skills for managing stress and anxiety. The focus will be on what we can control right now to help us feel better. During each group we will learn and practice a new skill which you can use whenever you feel overwhelmed. Each group is accompanied by a handout that you can keep to practice the skills between sessions and to review the material covered in group as needed well after the 8-session course.

Resources Group

Adjusting to new culture can be extremely challenging because everything is different and new including the language, the laws, and the healthcare system. The resource group focuses on connecting you with practical information and resources to help you meet your basic needs. Some of the areas covered include legal referrals and medical referrals, referrals to English classes, resources for food, and providing information on other community resources and programs.

Art Class

Art class meets weekly for two hours. No prior experience is necessary and all skill levels from beginner to advanced are welcome. This class is led by Dr. Karin Montero, CST’s Medical Director who is also an artist. Dr. Montero provides instruction on different art techniques while also facilitating lively conversation that routinely includes a lot of laughter.

In preparation for the week, each group member will be texted a series of images in advance of the art group that you can then use to paint or draw as you practice new techniques during class and between classes. Art is another way to practice mindfulness and many people find it relaxing and healing – this class might serve as a testament to the saying that “sometimes laughter is the best medicine!”

Meditation Group

Meditation is an ancient wisdom tradition that over time has been incorporated in various forms by almost all major religions and spiritual traditions. CST’s weekly meditation group is welcoming of all religious and non-religious backgrounds and spiritual traditions. The objectives of this group are to promote a sense of safety and stability, facilitate healing and empowerment, enhance resilience and wellbeing, improve emotion regulation, and to create community and social connection and support.

Meditation has been linked to improvements in sleep, attention, memory, emotion regulation, blood pressure and chronic pain. It has also been shown to enhance wellbeing and compassion. Meditation is simple but not easy and so we use the power of coming together in a group format to provide encouragement and support to one another as we establish a meditation practice that fits our daily lives.

Women’s Yoga Class

CST hosts a weekly yoga class that is open to all female identified clients. Yoga is an ancient mindfulness practice with origins in northern India and a philosophy that emphasizes connecting the mind, body, and spirit. In this class we also place a special emphasis on practicing kindness and compassion towards ourselves by meeting ourselves where we are, befriending our bodies, and cultivating appreciation for what our bodies can do.

Yoga has been linked to health benefits such as improved sleep, increased strength and flexibility, and improvements in circulation, blood pressure, mental clarity, and wellbeing, among others. If you would like to learn more about this group, availability in the class, and to discuss options to get connected with the materials that you will need, please see your CST counselor or point of contact.

Survivors Support Group

This group aims to promote empowerment, resilience, and healing by leveraging the power of social support and the wisdom and experience that exists within the group. This group will provide information about common reactions to distressing life events, discuss and share coping strategies and community resources.

Above all, this group seeks to provide a safe space for people to connect with other survivors who have also had to leave their country and face many challenges in adjusting to a new country and culture.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy (PT) is an intervention that focuses on helping individuals (in TLC’s case, children) with physical impairments that are impacting their mobility, balance, coordination, quality of movement, or age-appropriate gross motor skills.

Pediatric physical therapists examine and treat children from birth to age 18 for symptoms related to genetic, neurological, and orthopedic conditions. At TLC Kids Therapy, a typical session may include manual techniques to address the limitations of myofascial or soft tissue mobility, positional techniques to facilitate postural alignment, development of gross motor skills such as rolling, crawling, walking, jumping, riding a bike, climbing stairs, climbing stairs, and transitions between positions.

Other common interventions include flexibility training to maximize range of motion, general strength training through everyday play,  and gait training to improve running and walking patterns. Family education is essential to success in physical therapy and a recommended individualized home exercise program will be given to each family to ensure carry over of skilled physical therapy intervention.

Physical therapy commonly collaborates with occupation and speech therapy (if needed) to optimize your child’s success in the home and school environment.

What to look for:

  • Abnormal Gait Pattern: Frequent falling and/or stumbling. 
  • Hypertonia (High Muscle Tone): Uncontrollable muscle spasms, stiffening, straightening out of muscles. 
  • Hypotonia (Low Muscle Tone): Looking “floppy”, being unable to keep up with peers. 
  • Delayed Milestones: Is your child delayed in gross motor skills? Read more to find out. 
  • Decreased Flexibility/Restrictions in Range-or-Motion: Sports injuries or surgery recuperation. 
  • Ligament Laxity: “Double-jointedness”. 
  • Asymmetrical Movement Patterns: Able to roll to one side, but not the other
  • Poor Posture: Preference for “W-Sitting” or having trouble sitting up straight in chairs. 
  • Frequent Loss of Balance 
  • Core or Lower Extremity Weakness 
  • Lack of Coordination 
  • Pain

What is Speech Therapy?

Speech Therapy (ST) is an intervention that focuses on improving a child’s speech and abilities to understand and express language.

Therapy includes coordinating the mouth to produce sounds to form words, increasing a child’s ability to understand and express language via different communication modalities (e.g., written, pictorial, body, signs, and the use of language through alternative communication systems such computers, and iPads), and overall help strengthen and coordinate the muscles in the mouth for speech and feeding purposes.

In the latter, ST also focuses on assessing a child’s chewing skills, and whether they are moving their tongue correctly to thoroughly breakdown the food and propel it back for the swallow. Lastly, speech therapy can also help babies improve their ability to suck from a bottle and coordinate breathing while eating.

Articulation Disorders:

This when a kid has trouble saying certain sounds or saying words correctly. “Run” might come out as “won.” Or “say” may sound like “thay.” Lisps are considered articulation disorders. 

Fluency Disorders:

If a kid repeats certain sounds and has trouble saying the complete word, he or she may have fluency disorder. For example, a kid trying to say “story” might get stuck on the “st” and say “st-st-st-story.” Or he or she might draw out certain sounds and say “ssssssstory.” A stutter is a fluency disorder. 

Resonance or Voice Disorders:

A kid might have a voice disorder if people have trouble understanding him or her. The kids might start a sentence loud and clear, but it’s quiet and mumbling by the end. Sometimes these kids sound like they have a cold or like they’re talking through their noses. 

Language Disorders:

A kid who has trouble understanding people or has trouble putting words together to express thoughts might have a language disorder. 

Swallowing Disorders:

A child with feeding or swallowing difficulties (dysphagia). Symptoms include: falling asleep while eating, breathing difficulties while eating or drinking, eating only certain foods, food aversion, breastfeeding difficulties, lengthy feeding times, difficulty chewing, excessive drooling, coughing, or gagging while eating, and maintaining appropriate weight.

Individual therapy is the foundation of mental health care. It's where you and your therapist will dig into your past, dreams, goals, and pains and work together to find solutions. Here is how Ellie can support you with individual therapy.

Our experience enables us to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. We treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.

Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.

Depression and Anxiety: Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.

Trauma and PTSD: Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances (combat, sexual assault, abuse). Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing

Relationships: Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples and families who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and families to discuss issues and solutions.

Child and Adolescent: Childhood and adolescence are a struggle for many. Often circumstances or the same depresssion, fear and anxiety that impact adults and also prove to be problematic for children. Through counseling and treatment children and adolescents grow and develop.

Parenting: Therapy can include effective approaches to the challenges of parenting. The goal is to foster appropriate growth and development in the child from a positive perspective.
