I specialize in working with individuals with anxiety, depression, ADHD , and trauma, or simply adjusting to life's transitions.
Sometimes we find ourselves in a valley, feeling depleted and uninspired. We realize we have been stuck in the same cycles, having exhausted all of the tools that once worked and unsure why change feels impossible. Sometimes we just need someone to see the best in us, to hold hope when we're barely hanging on. Therapy shouldn't be something we dread, but rather an opportunity to feel encouraged and poured into, inspired and deeply understood.

If you or someone you care about has ADHD and you have started to give up hope that things will get better, you might consider trying psychotherapy or coaching. I treat many people that come to me with ADHD and by the end of 12 sessions, they show improvements in impulsiveness, distractibility and difficulty concentrating. Simple shifts can help overcome procrastination such as asking you to shift your attention from how terrible you imagine the task to be to how good you will feel when it is behind you. This shift in thinking can increase motivation enough to overcome procrastination.

they may or may not come in with a specific diagnosis,such as ADHD , Autism, Sensor processing anxiety or depression.
It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior

Are you seeking answers to your child's learning-related needs. A thorough evaluation is needed to accurately diagnose or "rule out" a Specific Learning Disorder (like dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia), ADHD / “ ADD ,” Autism, or an Intellectual Disability. An assessment will result in recommendations based on your child's unique learning profile. Some clients seek testing for other reasons. For example, a college student who has a disability may be entitled to accommodations in school, including exams. An assessment is adapted to meet each client's needs. As a highly skilled Licensed Educational Psychologist, I can help.

ADHD Therapists
Some children and adults with ADHD find it difficult to concentrate on tasks at school or work and may daydream frequently. Children with ADHD may become disruptive, defiant, or have trouble getting along with parents, peers, or teachers. Children who struggle with hyperactivity and impulsivity, in particular, often have behavioral challenges that can be difficult for adults to manage. Adults, on the other hand, may be more likely to report feeling restless or fidgety; if they struggle with impulsivity, they may make rash decisions that adversely affect their life. For both children and adults, executive functioning (planning, emotional regulation, and decision-making) is often affected as well. Many children and adults display either hyperactive or inattentive symptoms of ADHD, but it’s also possible for both sets of symptoms to exist together, in what is typically called combined type ADHD.

If you're looking for a Walnut Creek ADHD therapist, these professionals provide ADHD therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
