Life throws us many curve balls If you are struggling with your life, exhausted from anxiety, experienced a difficult life transition, or more, you've come to the right place. Or perhaps you are a mom, juggling many priorities, with little left for yourself....or you've had a significant loss, and need help with some bereavement. Or maybe you just want to feel the best you can & have energy to spare & get back to a place where you recognize yourself: you have energy, motivation, goals, friends. Perhaps you are in need of medications to help you "get back on balance". Donna can also help you with these types of concerns.

I look forward to meeting you, hearing your story , and making sense of all that ails you. I feel that medications can provide relief for biological psychiatric conditions, but most of the long term relief comes from working through and reworking unhealthy patterns to get better life outcomes. Treating Psychiatric conditions is an art that requires balancing the medical treatments with looking at unconscious maladaptive behaviors. Once patterns are identified, the work we do will lead to change.

We regard people as inherently healthy and whole, in contrast to the conventional and widespread belief that people with psychiatric symptoms must be in long-term treatment. Psychological health can truly be achieved by learning new techniques of managing stress and overcoming fear-based habits. We prescribe medications as temporary tools for softening intense symptoms, allowing the deeper healing can occur. Alternative treatments such as vitamins and supplements are encouraged when appropriate. When depression or PTSD does not respond to conventional treatments, we may recommend a course of ketamine assisted psychotherapy.

Thank you for your interest in my practice. Since joining the Dodson ADHD Center in 2018, I have been specializing exclusively in adult ADHD. I see people over the age of 15. In my experience, people with ADHD are bright, creative, and hardworking, but have struggled for decades to fully express their talents. They know they are working overtime but aren't getting the results other people seem to get. They know something isn't quite right and that it's sabotaging their work, friendships and families. They are always slightly anxious and find it hard to be in the moment. After so many years of this, they want something different!
