My ideal client is someone open to the process of therapy. Someone who is willing to show up for themselves, and “put in the work”. My client may be someone dealing with anxiety, depression, or challenges of ADHD , such as Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria. My client may be feeling in a rut or “stuck” in personal aspects of their life. My client may be challenged by different phases and stages of life, by not feeling capable or feeling easily overwhelmed. They want to engage in therapy and work on achieving their personal goals in a space where they are seen, heard, validated and encouraged.

I specialize in assessing and treating developmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD , learning disabilities, childhood depression, anxiety, and thought disorders.
I specialize in conducting neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents, ages 6 to 22. I am currently only taking clients for evaluations. The evaluations I conduct are invaluable to parents who are trying to understand their child's learning style and their learning strengths and weaknesses. Often, parents seek my help when they are concerned about their child's ability to achieve his/her potential in school and/or regulate his/her behaviors or emotions. My reports have been crucial tools for many parents in securing academic accommodations for their children both in the state of Massachusetts and elsewhere.

I specialize in supporting adults who are navigating anxiety, stress, ADHD , or trauma, so they can have more joy, ease, and peace in their lives.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by stress and anxiety? Has a painful past experience left you feeling disconnected from your true self? Maybe you're tired of worrying, overthinking, or never feeling good enough. Perhaps your emotions are all over the place, your relationships don't feel fulfilling, or you feel like you're a few steps behind where you "should" be in life. It might be hard to remember a time when you didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: You're ready for some relief. You’re ready to quiet your mind. Most of all, you’re ready to break free from the overwhelm and find calm, confidence, and balance.

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.
