I have advanced knowledge in supporting adults who have experienced trauma throughout their lives and those who have symptoms of, or a diagnosis of ADHD.
Embracing our unique life experiences enriches our perspective and fosters growth. It's through this understanding that we can cultivate resilience, discover new coping mechanisms, and lead an intentional and purposeful life. Each challenge we overcome teaches us more about ourselves and the world, guiding us towards a more grace filled life. My approach supports clients motivated to change and engage in personal growth, empowers them to uncover and understand their core beliefs and emotions, and cultivates confidence to live their life as their authentic self.

It's time to change your story. You're looking through these profiles, trying to find someone who sees you. You've known you're different - the way you feel things, sense things, or relate to the people around you. And somehow you believe you're the problem. But, to quote Doctor Who, "I've never met anybody who wasn't important before." You have a purpose - even if you don't know it. And yes, there are obstacles: anxiousness, lack of motivation, and overwhelm. Together we work to find your strengths, use them to overcome these obstacles, and make you the hero of your own story.

My ideal client is ready to do the hard work of making real change in their life. Sometimes, people think change has to be big to start therapeutic services; it doesn’t. Sometimes, learning to breathe, decrease anxiety, and be more mindful of your strengths can become a great asset. Therapy doesn’t have to be forever; sometimes, you just need help getting through the now. I help individuals & families dealing with chronic illnesses and end of life. At times like those, crises often happen: medical conflict, spiritual conflict, familial conflict, financial concerns, housing and food insecurity.

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.
