Consider what it would feel like to add value to others while remaining healthy.
Imagine waking up with more confidence to handle whatever the day brings! So, what are your days bringing you? Perhaps you’re tired, stuck, bitter, or anxious. Are tough decisions causing you distress? Ever catch yourself thinking, “I’m not where I thought I’d be in life” or “I’m not who I want to be”? Does time and effort spent serving others or caring for your family leave you exhausted and overextended? Have emotional, physical, or spiritual tolls left you feeling out of control?

The decision to engage a therapist is deeply personal and may seem challenging. It is a unique relationship, where ideally, you can be in a safe, empathic environment and talk to someone with in depth psychological training and significant life experience. I offer both to my clients, treating individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families. These relationships have led me to focus on the treatment of: anxiety, depression, relational communications, work place stressors, substance use/abuse, attachment disorders, emotional regulation issues, self image, family systems, ADHD , grief and loss, parenting, obsessive/compulsive behaviors, impulse control, mood disorders and relational conflicts.

Parenting can be tough. You may find your mind filled with worries and self-doubt. “Am I repeating the same mistakes my parents made?” “I’m tired of the yelling, but what else am I supposed to do?” If these thoughts seem all too familiar, it may be time to get your child and yourself some support. All you want is for your child to feel confident, have good friends, and succeed in life, but this feels so far away. . In therapy, your child will learn to recognize their strengths, develop new skills, and learn ways to cope with difficult emotions.

You are struggling, but no one seems to understands what you're going through. Life threw you a curveball and trying your best just doesn't prove enough. Everyday tasks can feel impossible when you're suffering. Sometimes things are simply too hard because you are hurting or worried. You wonder if you're a good enough parent when your child argues with you. You are so frustrated with your partner not hearing your worries and sorrows. You long for healthy relationships and being understood since you know what you're capable of if only you had sufficient support and love. You are seeking help because you desire real change.

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.
