I primarily work with children and young adults that struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and those struggling to process trauma.
I believe in the inherent dignity and value of every person. I am passionate about working toward healing and creating a greater understanding of one’s self, especially with children and young adults. I want to give kids the tools to know how to discuss and regulate their emotions at a young age so that they will have those skills for the rest of their life. It is sometimes hard to know the next steps towards healing, I am committed to helping with that process.

Have you been struggling with ADHD symptoms and can't seem to find a therapist who "gets it"? I am a psychologist who specializes in working with teens and adults with ADHD. I understand the ways that being neurodivergent can impact more than just schooling or work performance. I often say that my work is "about ADHD, and it's not about ADHD," as, oftentimes, adults with this invisible difference experience challenges that go beyond brain-based symptoms and impact self-concept, mood, and relationships. I work with individuals and couples impacted by ADHD.

Seeking therapy can be a daunting task, and as a counselor, I want to make this process as smooth and accessible as I can. I enjoy building rapport with my clients and watching them grow and flourish. The relationship between counselor and client often is a predictor for successful outcomes. Therefore, I work hard to offer a safe, non-judgmental environment to discuss life transitions and difficulties.

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.
