Are You Struggling With Executive Dysfunction?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Executive Dysfunction

Executive dysfunction arises from issues that affect the brain area that serves the executive functioning needs. These include problem-solving, multi-tasking, flexible thinking, motivation, and planning and organizing.

People who deal with executive dysfunction may encounter issues in work, relationships, and their personal life, such as being perceived as “lazy,” having poor planning or time management skills, and experiencing attention issues, impulsivity, mood changes, or disturbances. Common things that lead to executive dysfunction include brain injuries, trauma, ADHD, depression, or other cognitive or mental health disorders.

Available Treatment Options

Therapist interventions for executive dysfunction target skills such as planning, organizing, scheduling, motivation, self-worth, and coping for managing stressful situations or emotions.
