Finding a psychiatrist that specializes in adults

Hello. I have been the typical ADD client and have seen my psychiatrist on and off for the past 3 years. I don’t feel as if she is interested in the whole picture of ADD and me as a person. Just prescribes different meds. I take full credit for not being consistent with her though. I have realized lately how much my life and choices are affected by my ADD and need help.  With that said, I am finding it difficult to find a therapist that treats adults. I live in Tucson,AZ. Any advice on finding someone? Thank you


There’s an article on that outlines the 10 Worst Therapists for Adult ADHD. In doing so, it also provides great advice for finding the right doctor for you.
