There are so many of us who have felt like outsiders our entire lives, pretending to be someone else to fit in. Learning to unmask is a scary and also liberating process of accepting who we truly are. Whether you've been formally diagnosed or suspect that you are Autistic or ADHD, you deserve therapy that doesn't expect you to change your brain to reach your goals. We will work together collaboratively to better understand the way your brain works and embrace the differences that make you, you! We will focus on using your natural strengths to help you reach the goals you set for yourself.

I specialize in ADHD testing and treatment of Adult ADHD. If you’re like many adults with ADHD, you might identify as an overthinker with a quick mind and strong feelings. And it seems like no matter how hard you try, you feel like people think you’re “scattered,” “too sensitive,” or even a little…“lost.” It feels like everyone else has it all figured out, and you’re left behind––beating yourself up for every little thing you do. You just want to live life without “analysis paralysis,” get organized, recover faster from emotional tailspins, and tackle your inner critic...for good.

If you have ADHD or ADHD adjacent concerns (i.e. OCD, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues), you might find life events to be incredibly overwhelming (even simple work tasks and chores). You're noticing that life events like starting a new job or committing to an academic major might challenge your sense of identity, disrupt your routines, and cause you to question our goals and values. You might find that you're procrastinating, losing track of appointments, and forgetting things you should remember. In cases like this, it’s easy to feel stuck, lost, or helpless.

If you’re looking at this page and considering therapy, that means you are already engaging in a journey towards healing. Recognizing that you are struggling can be really scary. Telling your story to a new therapist can also be a difficult task. Your thoughts, feelings, and journey deserve to be honored and respected.

I currently have immediate openings for ADULT ADHD and ASD testing. This process involves an online diagnostic visit, an in-person day of testing at our North Campus location, and an online feedback session. We accept most major insurances, though be prepared that the process is often between $600 to $1500 AFTER the discount from your insurance. If you are interested, please fill out the form on our website to get started. At this time, I am not accepting new clients for regular therapy. We are currently developing the systems to be able to test younger clients, but currently do not have the tests or infrastructure.

She screens all patients for ADD and substance abuse and treats these issues.
No, this suffering you live with is not all there is for you. You are suffering for reasons that can be identified and resolved in psychotherapy. If you could have figured it out on your own, you would have already, because you have really tried. You do not need "coping strategies" or suggestions or other superficial band aids for your pain, you need to understand what about you is functioning well and what isn't, and to develop the self-awareness, self-knowledge, and emotional competence that will get you out of this pain into the life you want to live.

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) and have worked with couples, teens and individuals struggling with ADHD, anxiety and depression.
I serve clients who want to gain self insight. This often gives clients relief from depression and anxiety because they have discovered their triggers, thought patterns and internal beliefs that have lead them to their presenting symptoms. I love serving couples who struggle with communication and have a desire to feel connected and "seen" by their partner.

I typically work with individuals focusing on ADHD, anxiety, racial trauma & life adjustments.
My best guess is you’re here checking out potential therapists because you’re feeling a bit stuck; you’re ready for something new, or maybe you’re just sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. There are infinite reasons why individuals might seek out counseling and therapy services.  However, there is often a thread of “feeling stuck” or a sense of discomfort as a response to a stressful situation. Perhaps you are going through a difficult time in your life or maybe you’ve noticed a pattern of behavior that you would like to explore further.  Whatever the reason, I’m here to help.
