My books on Adult ADHD include:
- 2008: A comprehensive guide to Adult ADHD, including the potential effects of poorly managed ADHD on loved ones and the adults themselves—along with a consumer’s guide to treatment strategies.
- 2016: A guide to ADHD couple therapy for professionals and consumers—based on the evidence of what works for couple therapy and what works for Adult ADHD
- 2014: A Kindle-only book.
I also contributed the first-ever chapter on ADHD couple therapy to psychologist Russell Barkley’s gold-standard clinical guide. The title is Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Handbook for Diagnosis and Treatment, Fourth Edition (2014)

Yes, sexual expression is yet another one of those areas—like sleep—where the public and professionals alike often fail to connect the dots to ADHD symptoms.
As I write in my first book, Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?:
“When ADHD does create significant sexual problems, it usually falls into two categories: The ADHD partner initiates sex all the time or almost never. In the sexual relationship as in elsewhere with ADHD, we encounter variable challenges in self-regulation and summoning motivation.”
Between these extremes (always and never) lies a range of issues that can drive apart couples—if they don’t know what they’re dealing with or what strategies to implement. Ignorance about this critically important connection between ADHD and sexual intimacy creates so much unnecessary hurt.
