About Melissa Orlov

I am a marriage consultant who specializes in working with couples in which one or both adults has ADHD to rebalance their relationship and learn to thrive.  To help couples better understand their situations, I wrote The ADHD Effect on Marriage, which was named best psychology book of the year by ForeWord Reviews in 2010. 

It is important to improve awareness about the impact adult ADHD has on relationships - not enough is said about this!  Towards that end, I teach marriage counselors and other professionals about effective marriage therapy for couples impacted by ADHD.  I also write the relationships column for ADDitude Magazine, blog for Psychology Today and Your Tango, and blog at my own site www.adhdmarriage.com.

I've has been interviewed on the topic of ADHD and marriage by the New York Times, CNN, Today, US News and World Report, CBS, AOL, the American Psychological Association Monitor and many others and am a cum laude graduate of Harvard College.
