Feeling stuck or fed up with your current therapist? Let's get real – life can be tough. It’s especially hard on ambitious people, parents & perfectionists who are expected to have it all together. The more successful you are (or are expected to be), the more difficult it is to keep it all together. Add anxiety, depression, & relationship issues – forget it. And the more that you achieve, the harder it becomes to find a therapist of your caliber or solutions that work for your complex issues. But I'm not here to hand out generic advice or quick fixes. I'm here to help you uncover the root of your challenges & build lasting changes.

I specialize in working with men’s issues, chronic depression, and adult ADHD.
Emotionally intense personalities, deep thinkers, and busy minds with sensitive hearts are welcome here. You're probably tired of people telling you that you're "too much": too needy, too talkative, too picky, too clingy, or (gulp!) too sensitive! Meanwhile, you're almost constantly feeling not good enough inside: like a fraud, a failure, and falling short of finding the love, the career, the friends, the life you've aimed for. You've possibly wondered if you have chronic depression, anxiety, or adult ADHD. Anxiety, aloneness, existential angst, indecisiveness, and insecurity can leave you in an emotional tailspin.

I typically like to incorporate CBT, ACT, solution-focused therapy, EMDR and mindfulness in working with adults with Depression, Anxiety, Adjustment Disorder, ADHD and other mood disorders.
My approach to therapy is authentic, warm, strengths-based, and collaborative. I try to be an active participant in the therapy room and will be direct as appropriate. As a practitioner, I believe that the patient is the expert on their own life and view therapy as an opportunity for the patient to collect a myriad of tools with which they can heal themselves.

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.
