Referral questions addressed include ADHD, learning disabilities, and emotional and behavioral functioning.
Entering therapy is not always easy, but it's an important step towards change. I believe therapy should be a process where my clients and I work as a team to identify strengths and learn new skills to increase their ability to cope with stress, anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems. I specialize in treating children and adolescents with mood and behavioral disorders. When working with children, I believe it's important to engage parents in the treatment and empower them be a coach and implement strategies discussed in therapy at home with their children.

I have committed my life to helping people like you. Let me help reduce conflict, increase communication, and rebuild trust and healing.

My passion is helping families connect to each other by learning to communicate effectively using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). This can be done in a multitude of ways including: BCBA consultation, ABA Therapy, Family Training, and Social Skills Training. In my experience, ABA Therapy can help everyone involved, not just the person receiving direct services, so it is important to include the whole family unit. I enjoy working with my clients to learn ways to self-regulate, communicate, and grow all while maintaining the traits and characteristics that make them special and unique.

As a former teacher and university professor, I have a specialty working with young adults ages 15-25 who are navigating life transitions and their perception of themselves, including issues of gender identity, coming of age, ADHD, learning disabilities, relationship issues, and career counseling.
Most of us want to live life more fully and connected, but more often than not, stress, loss, disappointment, and unexpected transitions disconnect us from the life we want. I am passionate about helping clients find the tools to repair relationships, navigate difficult times, and find their way back to a place of comfort and satisfaction. As an affirming, open-minded, and curious therapist, I see each person as unique. I work with clients to discover their own individual path to the change and growth they desire. I work with individuals, couples, and families.

There is no such thing as an ideal client. That is too boring. The way I do therapy is relaxed. I am not your average therapist, and I am not going to be like, "How does that make you feel?" but I am going to say, "What up! How are we doing today?" I never stop learning , and when you have me as a therapist, you will see that you will fall back in love with learning . Overall, I am just honored you allowed me to help you! Also, the best way to reach me is to Email over calling due to normally being in session, and I want to respond to you as quickly as possible!

You can begin the process of learning about yourself from your home.
Life these days can feel like you are on a roller coaster that doesn’t stop. This can lead to having very intense emotions, ones that feel overwhelming and hopeless. Maybe you are feeling extreme loneliness? Feeling so stressed that it’s hard to focus, or you just don’t feel like doing much of anything lately. Intense negative feelings can affect your physical health your relationships, sleep, and job or school performance. For some, anxiety or sadness can lead to outbursts of anger or feelings of worthlessness inside. It is important to learn about yourself, what is causing these feelings, and to know that there are solutions.

My specialty for the past 46 years has been children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral and neurological issues. Due to my experience I'm able to use multiple approaches and modalities that I formulate to the specific issue presented to me by my clients. I attempt to collaborate with the appropriate people and family members in the child's life to assist in a team approach. I'm somewhat nontraditional in the sense that I have many different recreational activities for the child that are integrated into the treatment process.

Education and Learning Disabilities Therapists

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
