Boston-area ADD/ADHD specialist?

I'd like a recommendation for a specialist in the Boston/Cambridge area to help me with what I think is ADD/ADHD.

I'm not totally sure what's going on, but I have symptoms similar to the "inattentive" type of ADD/ADHD and would like help with it--maybe medication or maybe not. Part of why I want to see a specialist (psychologist? psychiatrist? I don't know, you tell me) is to discern whether meds or therapy/behavior stuff (or both) is appropriate. Googling for ADD/ADHD healthcare providers in the area feels like an information overload right now, so I'd really love any mefi user recommendations (or anti-recommendations if you've had a bad experience).
I'm female, queer, in my mid-20's and a bit sensitive about interacting with doctors--I'm prone to avoidance if I think I'll be yelled at/talked down to, so a reassuring and judgment-free bearing is pretty important to me. T-accessible and accepting Blue Cross/Blue Shield are the other requirements I have.
