As a clinical psychologist I diagnose and treat many different conditions including anxiety, depression, bipolar, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), substance use disorders, and OCD.
I became a psychologist because I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live the best life they can. Life is constantly changing and this uncertainty can be a challenge for some people, and may lead to anxiety and depression or other disorders. I utilise a range therapies to meet the differing and deeply personal needs of my clients. I work in collaboration with clients to identify the areas of difficulty and together we set goals and work towards them from a strengths based perspective.

It takes courage and honesty to decide that you are not satisfied with your life. You might know that you need change, but you are not quite sure what, or, how to go about it. Alternatively, you may have a very clear idea of what is getting in the way of you thriving. Perhaps you have found the last couple of years a challenge, or you are generally feeling a bit lost or confused having difficulty processing the impact of the pandemic on you, or your young people/person, or any other barrier/s. Regardless, we can work together to rediscover hope, purpose and joy in your life.

ADHD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

You should seek treatment for ADHD if you consistently have difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that interferes with your daily life. Symptoms of ADHD include the inability to sustain attention during tasks, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, being easily distracted, frequent fidgeting or squirming, and talking or interrupting excessively. If these symptoms interfere with your career, academics, or relationships—for example, consistently failing to complete professional projects on time—you should seek an evaluation for ADHD.

How does treatment for ADHD work?

Effective treatment for ADHD often consists of medication, behavioural therapy, and lifestyle changes. Stimulant medications such as Adderall and Ritalin work by altering levels of neurotransmitters in the brain; higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine are known to improve attention and focus. Therapy works by helping people with ADHD understand the condition, discuss their areas of difficulty, and develop behavioral strategies to manage their symptoms. In some cases, modifying one’s diet and exercise can also help improve symptoms.

How long does treatment for ADHD take?

It’s tough to give an exact time frame because everyone varies. In terms of medications, stimulants begin to work very soon after you take them, generally within the hour. It may take time to identify the right medication and dosage, but the medication itself is fast-acting. In terms of therapy, it takes time to develop skills and put them into practice, but you will likely see improvements within a few weeks or months.
