I work with children and parents to provide strategic intervention combined with a supportive and non-judgmental approach. My technique is effective in reducing symptoms of anger, non-compliance, fighting, frustration and alienation in the parent/child relationship as well as the family as a whole. I have over 40 years of experience in a variety of clinical settings; all of them focused on children and adolescents. For the last 20 years until now I have been a school social worker in a private school program serving children with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, emotional and social problems.

As a therapist and supervisor in the field for 25 years, I bring both understanding and caring to the therapeutic relationship. I have specialties in working with people who struggle with depression, learning differences and attentional difficulties that result in performance anxiety. I help with ADD self-management. I am also a Lyme Literate counselor and as such have worked with other chronic complex illnesses. In the work that I do, I have found it key to highlight and appreciate differences in perception so we can explore how they lead to communication barriers. Celebrating diversity and uniqueness is important to healing.

Life presents us with obstacles. Some of these challenges originate in our past while others unexpectedly arise in our present. These obstacles often leave us in a state of despair, which we may experience as grief, fear or simply, "stuck". These challenges when properly analyzed, hold opportunities for self-awareness and personal growth. In our sessions, we will draw from evidence based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psycho-dynamic Therapy and Positive Psychology. Psychotherapy provides us with the insight to understand our situation and the perspective and skills to discover opportunities and choices that were previously unavailable.

I believe creating a comfortable, warm, and of course confidential environment is key. Sharing one's thoughts and feelings can be difficult work, but careful, compassionate listening, thoughtful reflection and a sense of humor can make it easier to engage in the therapeutic process. I work psychodynamically, thinking about you as a whole person, not as a cluster of symptoms. Together, we will consider your experiences from early life, patterns of relating and refine goals for cultivating a satisfying, meaningful life.

Growing up around people with mental health difficulties, I learned from a very young age to accept mental health pain as deep and strong as physical pain and recognize that kindness is healing. As a therapist, I continue to see how providing acceptance and unconditional understanding of another human being promotes healing from deep attachment injuries. In addition, I focus on developing skills which can help with some practical issues, such as social functioning, communication difficulties, planning, obsessive tendencies, or emotional outbursts.

In understanding that individuals in pain or having a particular challenge in life may make only one attempt at reaching out for help, I strive to welcome and set at ease every one who contacts me. Most therapy patients are ordinary people that have hit a bump in the road of life and cannot get past it on their own. My commitment, through goal directed therapy, is to help those people return to their optimal level of coping with the sometimes mild, sometimes severe challenges that life brings their way and guide them back to a sense of well being.

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.
