At VCAT ADHD Treatment Center we believe that there is a strong correlation between a healthy brain and a child mental, behavioral, and cognitive functioning. ADHD has been linked to serious behavioral and cognitive dysfunctions in children and adolescents. Thus, treating ADHD and related co-occurring disorders is in need of a proper and specialized multi dimensional assessment and evaluation in order to appropriately treat such disorders in a struggling child.

I work from a holistic and strength-based perspective in therapy. While therapy and traditional counseling tend to focus on pathology and deficits, I tend to focus on working with individual's already existing strengths to help them move beyond any concerns they may have. In addition, I conduct psychological, legal-medical, and forensic evaluations in my practice. I also contract with Workers Compensation to meet clients needs.

I have been in the helping profession since 1994 and I'm passionate about the people I serve. I work with men, women, adolescents and children in recovery, those with grief and loss, adjustment issues, anxiety, depression and trauma. My modality with children is non-directive and directive play therapy and coaching parents on behavioral interventions for change. I am mostly psychodynamic in my therapeutic relationships yet I do utilize a solution-focused and reality-based approach with adults and adolescents. I am also a CAMFT Certified Supervisor and supervise interns and therapists who need supervision.

My commitment to my clients is to provide them with a welcoming place in which they can safely share their struggles and receive genuine support. People generally don't seek help from a therapist until they reach the point where their typical coping skills are no longer working. If you are at that point and need help discovering new methods to help you make it through life's challenges, I can help.

To achieve this, I use an integrative treatment approach, grounded in psychodynamic and interpersonal theories, that encourages mindful self-reflection on internal experiences, authentic expression of affect and a benign curiosity about our personal experiences. My experience and training have made me comfortable working with a range of mental health concerns and a diversity of cultural backgrounds.

It takes courage to ask for help and I applaud you for taking the first step. Over the years, I have found that people have an innate sense of resiliency that they can tap into, but need guidance to find it. During the therapeutic process, I strive to nurture this sense as my clients grow, heal, cultivate creativity, and thrive in life’s many journeys.

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Or perhaps, you’re struggling with both. You experience excessive worry & thought traps that you can’t seem to get out of. You spend A LOT of time ruminating about the past & freaking out about future “what if’s.” You feel mentally & emotionally exhausted. Your heart races, you’re restless, you have trouble concentrating, & panic attacks creep in without warning. It’s a real pain the ass, just like depression! When you’re feeling depressed, getting out of bed is so, so hard. The feelings of low self-esteem, lack of motivation & guilt are crippling. It's exhausting...
