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.

Ive treated those suffering from ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, various depression and mood disorders, conduct disorder, learning difficulties, school issues, eating disorders, substance use (those not currently addicted), and teenagers who have caused sexual harm to others.
I have been working with adolescents and young adults for over 15 years. My practice provides a nurturing and supportive environment to help my clients work on their daily struggles and create a better and happier life for themselves. When working with teenagers, often family therapy is needed to ensure that everyone is working together for there to be positive changes. I will assist parents in how to better manage some of the behaviors that they are seeing with their child.

My experience extends to knowledge in the areas of ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Depression and Anxiety, and major psychiatric illness.
Making the decision to explore therapy is a step towards change.

The relationship between client and therapist is unique, and I believe in a collaborative approach building trust through honest communication. The right connection with a therapist is essential. I am deeply committed to the individuals and families with whom I work, and to the process of effecting the desired change.

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.
