I also specialize in ADHD and learning disorder testing for clients 6 to 55 years-old.
Many people have questions or concerns about their sexuality, sexual identity, and sexual attractions. They wonder if their lack of desire for their partner can change, how they can feel more comfortable engaging in sex, whether their sexuality is "normal," and what their attractions mean about them. They may feel embarrassed talking to their doctor about erectile problems or sexual pain. As an AASECT certified sex therapist, I work with teens and adults to confront these fears, answer questions, and improve sexual self concept and sexual health.

I believe that making the decision to enter into counseling is admirable. Each individual has unique experiences and unique struggles, but it is important that the individual knows that although the individual is unique, the individual is not alone. A strong therapeutic relationship between a counselor and client helps clients realize they are not alone as they explore their hurt as well as their strengths, and as they find hope. I would be humbled to create a trusting, nonjudgmental, and safe environment for you to heal and grow emotionally and spiritually, and to support you during an unprecedented time.

Life brings about all ranges of human emotion and reaction. As we are all individuals, we have different perspectives on the challenges that tend to suddenly appear at our doorstep. It is a powerful realization to recognize when those experiences become too overwhelming to manage alone. Through a variety of psychodynamic, humanistic and behavioral theories, I work to use an integrative approach to therapeutic intervention in order to fit the treatment to the individual.

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.
