If you are a couple looking for help, or if you are an adult struggling with ADHD , then I can help. I work with couples to help them move from feeling unloved, unimportant, lonely, and unheard to connecting and feeling loved, wanted, and heard. I help those with ADHD identify what causes stress and keeps them stuck. Then we work together to find ways to move forward and to address symptoms that get in the way of success and accomplishment. I work with premarital couples to help them identify potential problems and to gain skills to have strong, connected marriages. I am a certified facilitator of the Prepare/Enrich Program.

You’ve never fit into any type of “normal”. You’ve grown up with a learning disability and thought the struggle would “get better” after graduation. But that didn’t happen. You’re still easily distracted & overwhelmed. Worried others are seeing how much harder you’re working to complete “simple” tasks. Fearful of the judgement and teasing from others. You’re sad and doubting your own worth. You may have seen your uniqueness as something to be ashamed of or even hide. But today, you’re ready to leave the hurt from the past and embrace your unique self! It’s time to heal previous wounds, build confidence, and find out who you are.

Sometimes you want someone who understands your unique situation and can help you see that there is a way through. Experiences in life shape who we are. Whether it is navigating depression/anxiety, relationship challenges, or figuring out why you react the way you do (and what to do about it), I am here to help. With the belief that everyone's needs and path to change are different, I offer two areas of specialization: (1) Counseling women, teenagers, and those from diverse backgrounds and (2) Helping service providers process personal and work-related trauma; therefore being the “therapist’s therapist."

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.
