I believe that everyone is capable of living a life that feels purposeful. Sometimes because of a predisposition to depression or anxiety, losses or traumas endured through life, or the ways we were taught to think about ourselves, that purposeful life can seem like a distant possibility. I see patients primarily for talk therapy, and if needed, I prescribe medication. I work with people not only to cope, but to thrive. Note that I am not an "in-network" provider with any insurance. To request an intake, message me through Psychology Today or visit my website www.ninasreshtamd.com.

I have been treating college students and young professionals with ADHD/ADD for many years in my practice. ADHD can cause behavior problems in addition to focus issues. It can also make you feel like you can't handle going through your mail, organize your room, your desk or your home life. Every to do list can seem very overwhelming and you just feel paralyzed, frustrated and angry with yourself. Self esteem issues arise and your mind can't stop going.

Reaching out for help is one of the hardest yet crucial steps in improving your psychological well-being, and one which I commend you for doing. It can be difficult to find a psychiatrist that feels right for you. But once a strong connection is formed, that relationship can be a life changing experience for you. You deserve a safe space to explore the psychological, social, cultural, relationship and biological contributors to your mental health. I aim to provide you with this safe space using both therapy and medications tailored to address your specific mental health needs.

People are often unaware of, and frustrated by, the emotional and relational roadblocks that repeatedly thwart them. I work with you to clarify and understand these issues and their origins, to help you effect positive change. I believe that the self-understanding that catalyzes such change is best reached by cultivating a psychotherapeutic relationship in which compassionate, honest and constructive communication can occur. I strive to create an environment that encourages the development of empathic and reflective self-awareness, recognizes and fosters resilience, and promotes your optimal well-being.

Leading a fulfilling and happy life can be challenging and may even seem impossible at times. I believe that communicating and connecting via talk therapy is one path towards a happier and more meaningful life. My view is that therapy provides an opportunity to gain insight into one's relationships with one's self, others and society. I use a variety of approaches in my therapeutic work according to what works for each individual person. Together we'll focus on trying to understand the root causes of various problems and repetitive patterns of behavior that are difficult to change.
