Having struggles with depression, anxiety, fears, or ADHD symptoms? Do you find day-to-day life to be overwhelming? Are insecurities or a poor self-image keeping you from doing things you know you can do in your life? There was a line in a song many years ago which seems to express how therapy can help you. To paraphrase that line: "Free your mind and your body will follow". You can develop your ability to control your emotions and your life. You can set your goals and work toward them. You can take control of your life. Let's get started today.

The primary area of expertise are Major Depressive Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyperactivity, Bipolar Disorder I and II, Anxiety Disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder, Schizophrenia and Substance Usage.
As a License Professional Counselor, I believe in addressing a client's needs by first accepting that their individual journey is the key in understanding them. The similarities of most people with mental health diagnosis is a common thread of trauma. Each person has experienced events in their life that has caused them distress. Every person decides what the concern has cost their mental health and life. From that foundation, therapy can begin to assist the client in thriving to conquer their situations with the disorder or learn to cope with them to live a more fuller life.

I am a queer, bi-cultural, large bodied, first generation late college graduate with ADHD and a lot of experience overcoming obstacles.
Somewhere along the way you started feeling like a zombie. You are physically and emotionally exhausted. You're feeling burned out, overwhelmed, disconnected and on edge. Hopelessness is sinking in or has already sunken in. You're calling out to work or skipping classes. You are terrified that you can't handle life's demands or the needs of those who count on you. Your family and relationships are suffering. The words "self-care" elicits both a laugh and a sinking feeling in your stomach, but also, you know that at some point something has to give. You are tired of feeling guilty for having your own needs. It is time.

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.
