Specialties in my practice are ADHD evaluation and treatment, support and advocacy for cancer patients and their caregivers, grief work, depression, and anxiety.
I have been in private practice since 1992. Prior to earning my doctorate in clinical psychology, I was an elementary school teacher for seven years. About 70 percent of my current practice is with children and teens and 30 percent with adults, families, and couples. I absolutely love my vocation! I am privileged to join people on their journeys, to meet them where they are and go from there. I am committed to partnering with my patients to help them reach their full potential. I place a high value on the therapeutic relationship.

If you are a teenager, young adult, parent, or spouse you may often experience stress in your life. You may feel less connected, misunderstood, and overwhelmed with work or school. Although some stress is healthy, too much stress makes it even more challenging to create solutions and work through problems. Whatever the issue is, you would like to feel more connected and valued in your relationships, improve your ability to manage your stress and solve problems, overcome previous barriers, and have a better sense of who you are.

I believe it is a difficult decision to reach out for support from another person. In so doing, therapy not only needs to be a gentle guidance towards a happier lifestyle, but it also needs to incorporate challenges. In working with individuals, couples and families, I enjoy creating a balance of both of these concepts. Shifting our perceptions and changing our behaviors is not a simple process for anyone. I work with parents, teenagers and even our littlest people during stressful life situations including depression, anxiety, anger management, marital issues, women's issues, and processing traumatic events.

Sad, Worried, and Stubborn Teenagers; Rocky Relationships; Worried Parents; and Stressed Individuals. These are the people I help. You probably already know what the problem is and what you don’t want anymore. You don’t want to be sad, you don’t want to be in this rut, or you're tired of arguing with your teenager or spouse about the same things over and over. Trying to solve it yourself can be like trying to eat a huge pizza that hasn’t been cut into slices-- it's overwhelming and you don’t know where to start. My job is to help you break the solution into pieces so you can decide where to start and what your next steps are.

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.
