I pay particular attention to those who are neurodivergent, gifted and have other neuropsychological concerns such as ADHD, ASD, LD, and addictive/compulsive disorders.
You’ve listened to the podcasts, bookmarked the articles, read the guides, and scoured the internet for hours; eager to implement their valuable insights into your life. Yet, despite your motivation for change, some of those well-intentioned strategies are falling short or not resonating. If this sounds familiar, rest assured, I'm here to help. My approach is centered around you, meaning I am committed to working collaboratively, developing a plan that helps you thrive and is based on YOUR unique needs via traditional therapy, life coaching, holistic approaches and animal therapy with my adorable therapy dog, Levi (pic below).

My work focuses on women facing challenges such as ADHD, trauma, relationships, domestic abuse, depression, anxiety, and gender issues.
At times throughout our lives we may find ourselves feeling lost or confused due to sudden changes, uncertainty, or the inability to move forward. Understanding who and what shaped our lives as well as how those influences continue to impact us is empowering. Therapy is an excellent way to clarify our thoughts and understand our emotions in order to reach a healthy life balance. It can help us move from feeling helpless or hopeless to developing insight, daring, and resilience. The therapeutic process can instill a level of self-confidence and self-awareness inspiring us to become our ideal self.

I specialize in childhood trauma, ADHD, and parenting.
Are you exhausted all the time? Have you seen good suggestions from your friends, but you don't think they'll help you? You've done it all by yourself for so long. How can talking to someone else help you? I've seen this excuse many times and it often results in continuing the never-ending cycle of people-pleasing, perfectionism, burnout, and exhaustion. I can help you step out of survival mode and create the thriving life you've always dreamt.

I am also a certified professional coach specializing in executive dysfunction (ADHD), as well as having my very own ADHD diagnosis.
Are you exhausted, struggling, longing for more, constantly committing to "get your life together?" Do you feel like you're constantly dropping loose ends and wonder how everyone else does it? Or are you overwhelmed, overstimulated, and overextended, jittery during the day and not sleeping at night? Has a moment in time caught you in its web and you are ready to become untangled? Are you "different" (LGBTQIA+, ethically non-monogamous, Pagan or pagan-friendly, etc.) and looking for a therapist who "gets it"? Whatever the journey has brought you, your courageous heart has led you here.

Life can bring many challenges and struggles, which can often be difficult to cope with on your own. As a fellow runner, I know the therapeutic benefits of running. Running can bring healing, but sometimes a professional is needed to offer outside perspectives and expertise to help you function at your best.

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.
