Need a good listener? Someone to talk to? Great! I'm really good at that but it's not what my default setting. I'm very action-oriented because that's where change solidifies for us. My main population is folks with ADHD , who tend to be doers. We folks with ADHD are creative and adaptive but sometimes we get stuck. And when we get stuck we get really stuck! I work with people ready to build awareness of their situations with the goal of increasing engagement with the life they want.

It is with great pleasure that I have practiced with individuals of all ages for the last 25 years. I enjoy building trust in the therapeutic relationship-even with those who are resistant or not sure if therapy is for them. Accompanying individuals on their journey to self-discovery and witnessing their transformation is an enormous privilege of my job. People come to therapy looking to "fix" things. We forget that often we contain the solution to our problems, but that the solutions are buried under the residue of stressful life events, trauma and loss.

I'm moved by the longing of couples to be to be listened to with undivided attention, to be understood and accepted, to be seen in their virtues and appreciated, to be held with affection and delight, to be allowed to be themselves and shift from it's all about me to you need all the same things. Your criticism and force can step back when I help you care about your own wounds - that your partner can respect, but cannot heal for you. I walk with confounded parents to calm their reactions to their children's resistance. They feel ignored, failing to raise a caring and responsible son or daughter. Heart is heavy, values seem irrelevant. Unburden the heart so your children can hear your values, not your reactions. Couple and family difficulties have roots in old hurts where we managed with knee jerk reactions and attitudes of how things should be. I can help you hold perspective, where you value yourself when others discredit you, where you're open to feedback about what is not helpful without feeling criticized or angry. Therapy is not getting partners or children or peers to respond, it's being able to bring my values with conviction without being attached to the outcome

Life is full of surprising opportunities, unexpected changes, and personal challenges. Occasionally when faced with life's opportunities and difficulties we feel anxious, depressed, even immobilized with indecision. Friends and family can be a wonderful support, but sometimes we need the help of an unbiased person to listen and help us see that what might look like an impossible hurdle is really an opportunity for growth. Struggling in school or in our careers, relationship or parenting difficulties, coping with trauma, loss, and aging are all normal developmental challenges that people regularly face but that occasionally require some help and guidance.

Often as we journey through life we experience challenging events. At these times answers may seem out of reach. While friends and family can be supportive, they sometimes are unable to help us heal. I offer a compassionate, safe place to fully explore yourself and your relationships -- past, present and future.

Mental health is knowing what is ultimately good for you, and doing that. That's easier said than done. I will help you discover the barriers to doing what is ultimately good for you. If you are feeling burnt out at work, frustrated with parenting, hurt by the actions of others, feeling like you don't belong, fear that you don't matter, or struggling with feeling safe in your environment, I would love to help you discover the parts of you which need healing and help you build a loving relationship with those parts.

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.
