Are you not feeling like yourself these days? Feeling dissatisfied with your life? Or are you a parent who is worried about your child? Maybe there’s been a change, they’re not doing as well as you know they could. Perhaps you’ve observed a worrisome pattern of increased stress and anxiety in them...but they won’t talk to you like they used to. I have extensive experience working with adults, children, teens and families experiencing anxiety, depression, and stress. Additionally, I have experience in working with people diagnosed with ADHD , as they often need support for feelings of inadequacy, regret, anxiety, and depression.

Common topics my kiddos talk about include: emotion regulation, identity exploration, peer relationships, anxiety, depression, family substance use, school stress, and ADHD & other neurodiversity challenges.
We can all agree the last few years have been strenuous on all of us. Now more than ever, kids are struggling with anxiety, depression, loneliness and identity formation. And at this age, kids may be pulling away, not sharing everything as they used to share. That can be scary! Therapy can help kids learn to identify and manage big emotions with a trusted adult, giving you (the guardian) a sense of ease knowing they are receiving quality support.

As a father of two children, I know how important it is to seek the best education for our children. Being a compassionate psychologist with over ten years experience in supporting children who struggle with learning, inattention, anxiety and depression, I understand that learning, socializing and adapting to new environments can be difficult. Psychological testing can highlight a child's strengths, clarify areas of need and provide parents and teachers with practical steps they can take. I work with children with all levels of skill and areas of concern.

Is your child feeling burned out? Do they often get headaches or stomachaches? Are they overwhelmed and avoiding responsibilities like chores and school? Is negative thinking like catastrophizing causing more stress? They may not remember a time when things weren't so hard and they'd like support in navigating challenging situations. You're in the right place if you're ready to dive in and learn strategies to improve anxiety, mood, sleep, and overall health. You're ready to find harmony and get back on track. Most of all, you'd like your teen to get support so they can feel more balanced and confident.

ADHD Therapists

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, behavioral 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.

Are there specific medications for ADHD?

Medications to treat ADHD are generally stimulants, the most common are Adderall and Ritalin. There are two categories of stimulants: Amphetamines include Adderall, Dyanavel, Vyvanse, and Dexedrine, and methylphenidates include Ritalin, Concerta, Daytrana, Focalin, Quillichew, Quillivant, and Metadate. Non-stimulants and antidepressants may be used as an alternative if stimulants aren’t effective or viable for a particular patient.

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.
