In addition to psychotherapy, I also employ Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Training to address ADHD in adults and children, addiction/alcoholism recovery, sleep issues, depression, anxiety, PTSD, cognitive fog due to chemotherapy or Lyme, poor stress tolerance, age-related cognitive decline, migraine, OCD.
My approach is to create an accepting, supportive, non-judgmental partnership in order to help my clients discover their strengths, inner resources, and to achieve a deeper understanding of who they are. This work will help you to overcome or more effectively deal with such problems as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and attention deficit disorder. We work together to identify self-defeating thought patterns or unconscious defenses that might be getting in the way of your natural capacity for satisfying relationships, or the full and authentic expression of who you are.

I have extensive experience working with individuals in recovery from Alcohol & Drug Addiction, individuals with ADD / Executive Functioning Deficits, and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I believe the most positive transformational aspect of therapy is when someone feels listened to,... really listened to. When this occurs, many levels of healing are possible. Ambitions may be discovered or recovered, losses and sorrows may be grieved for the first time or for the 1,000th time, and self-awareness and self-esteem can emerge in new ways. My approach focuses on developing an inner dialogue with oneself that is is compassionate and restorative. All sessions are virtual over various Telehealth platforms.

I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth as your guide, witness, and companion. I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional “talk” therapy. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding to having a transformative experience. I have an active style that is more than simply listening. I would describe the way I work as collaborative, curious, and challenging when it needs to be. I identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP) of gifted intelligence, both of which inform my work. My approach is mindfulness-based and somatic.

I have been so blessed to work with some of the most amazing, strong individuals. I have worked with everyone from facing addictions head-on to being diagnosed with cancer and learning how to shift gears and fight. I am the man you want in the trenches with you while you are navigating and fighting the hard things that life will inevitably throw your way. My clients are fighters. When I am done with them I am often in awe of the respect I have for the human spirt and the resiliency of our minds and bodies. If there is one thing you take away from working with me, it is that you are capable and you are so much stronger than you know.

Are you uncertain about making the right choices for your child? Maybe you’ve been wondering what their future will look like if they’re constantly struggling now. Most parents feel as though they have a lack of information and understanding of why their child struggles and how to make it better. Watching your child suffer and feeling hopeless to know how to help is heartbreaking. A part of you knows that things should be better, but you’re seeing little progress and may even be dissatisfied with the current services your child has been offered.

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.
