I have Expertise in the treatment of Trauma, Depression, Generalized Anxiety, Postpartum Depression/Anxiety, Parenting, Addiction, Teen and Adult ADHD , Family and Couples Counseling, and Divorce.
Therapy is a journey to discover the tools to live the best life each day with expert guidance. We unpack the emotional distress that stifles this potential ln all of us. With the knowledge to manage emotions effectively, self-examination and healing sadness and worries have a transformative impact. Acting impulsively and feeling stuck builds the presumption that recovery is out of reach. My work incorporates dynamic psychotherapy and skill that enhance our relationships, careers, and self-confidence.

Congratulations, you've taken the first step toward emotional well-being. Seeking help is a sign of strength. The past few years have been a disorienting and tumultuous time. With recent landmark rulings it doesn't look like it will be getting easier anytime soon. But you don't have to go through it alone. I believe you'll find me empathic, curious and as a client once told me, "You care and you keep it real." I believe this to be true because this is my second career. My life experience has enabled me to walk in many people's shoes. Now I'd like to walk beside you on your journey.

I am also a certified trainer in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.

I am sure that finding a therapist at this moment is difficult for you. One wants to choose a therapist who has just the right sensibility. Having been in practice for 30 years has taught me to be present and listen carefully to your needs. As a Family Therapist I think about all the elements that influence and impact your life, your work, your family and your friends. As a Systemic Thinker I know that your attachment to others and your interpersonal skills determine how you feel. I hope you will consider this as you search for a new therapist.

People who come to me for therapy find a pragmatic clinician who responds actively and efficiently to urgent problems and symptoms, including anxiety, depression, and bereavement. I quickly help identify and address how present day stressors are affecting my patients' relationships at work and at home. My admiration for people’s strength and resilience guides my work. I believe a good therapist should be a loyal ally, an advocate for a person’s best self, and a compassionate believer in human dignity and capacity for change. My style is warm. My personality is direct.

I started my social work career working with children and families. This experience has helped to shape my work with clients and to understand how our experiences in our own families affect our lives. Since I have been in the field for over 30 years, I utilize both my analytic training (four years post masters) as well my roots as a social worker. I believe in enabling clients to work in the here and now to make good choices based on sound understanding of their motivations. My experience is wide ranging but working with clients who have depression and anxiety is a specialty as well as clients suffering from OCD. For the past 15 years I have worked with adult children of alcoholics as well as those in early recovery from a variety of addictions including drug, alcohol, smoking, gambling and shopping. I look forward to meeting with you and to encourage and support you on your journey of self discovery.

For the ambitious, high-achievers in their early 20-30’s, life can be quite overwhelming. Juggling family responsibilities, romantic interests, and career aspirations while trying to establish a strong sense of independence is no small task. You may be left feeling like you're navigating the shift into early adulthood without a map, or charting new waters without land in sight. You may feel like you are doing a lot more, but not necessarily getting a lot more done and the expectation that reaching a certain milestone will bring comfort is constantly being met with disappointment, leaving you feeling unmotivated and unfulfilled.

In my 40 year career, I have focused on the educational, social and emotional needs of children in the preschool and elementary years. You may have concerns about your child's development. School personnel may be recommending an evaluation by a psychologist to clarify your child's challenges. You may feel that the school district is not adequately responsive to your child's needs, and want to learn how to navigate the special education system. You may be looking to supplement a psychological evaluation completed by the school. As a parent, you may be feeling overwhelmed and seek guidance to support your child's development.

My style is warm, genuine, and practical. I use humor, honesty, and collaboration to create a safe and supportive space where you’ll feel comfortable diving into this challenging work. I believe the key to progress in therapy is developing insight into patterns (relationships, behaviors, and thoughts), while learning concrete skills to make real tangible changes in the here and now. My training has primarily focused on psychodynamic psychotherapy and DBT.

As a therapist, I start with the basic assumption that we all have a fundamental impulse for growth and well-being. Sometimes we need resources, guidance, and expertise to rediscover this. In my practice I am looking to engage clients to gain insight, discover motivation, and hone emotional skills. I am interested in providing the most conducive setting for people to cultivate their innate creativity, intelligence, and courage in navigating anxiety, depression, and the range life’s challenges.

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.
