Have you been feeling discouraged because you repeat the same ADHD patterns and don’t know how to change? Do you feel embarrassed when you measure time wrong and miss deadlines, procrastinate, or falter on commitments to friends and family? You are NOT alone. I’ve been there myself and I know how these patterns can leave you feeling ashamed, self-critical, or hopeless. Having an ADHD brain in a capitalist society is hard, and you need specialized support. Through a creative combination of education, support and healing, you can learn to befriend instead of battle yourself.

Hello and welcome! My name is Hayl and I'm an LCSW experienced in supporting people from all walks of life in their trauma recovery. Trauma is not merely the external event that happened to you, but rather what happens inside of you as a result of the event that happened to you. Trauma occurs when we have adverse experiences that we are forced to face alone, such as having no secure attachment figure or safe space to process and integrate these experiences. Trauma is a deep psychological wound that deserves attention and care just as any wound does. Together we will embark on a journey to feel safe, secure, and understood.

I work with adolescents and adults who face challenges related to ADHD, academic life, anxiety, stress management, and general wellness/lifestyle. Using a combination of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and relational techniques I am able to create treatment to you. My emphasis is on connection, collaboration, and self-care throughout the treatment process. While my primary focus is individual therapy, at times I find it appropriate to incorporate family members into sessions to address issues such as parenting, family dynamics, relationships, or school.

I believe that therapy is about more than "working things out." The therapeutic relationship is just that: a relationship. I provide a safe and supportive environment to express emotions that are often difficult to express in other settings; anger, grief, sadness, despair. It is my hope to work with you to better understand yourself, and create a sense of safety within yourself. No person exists in a vacuum, so I will encourage you to reflect on your past, and how it influences your present. I believe that lasting change, requires diving deep to address deep rooted patterns.

Transgender Therapists

As a gender-diverse individual, why might I want to see a therapist who is also gender diverse?

A trans or gender-diverse client may want to see a therapist who is also trans or gender diverse because the client may feel safer sharing their experiences and more confident that the therapist will understand, validate, and support them. But trans or gender-diverse clients can also benefit from therapy with cisgender therapists; this is a personal decision based on the connection between the client and the therapist, and if that connection is strong, therapy will be successful.

What if I cannot find a therapist who shares my gender identity?

Therapy can still be effective if a therapist does not share a client’s gender identity; a large body of research indicates that the most important factor in successful therapy is the therapeutic alliance. A therapist can also be interviewed for sensitivity and competence on gender identity and expression to ensure they possess appropriate knowledge and skills. Many therapists have excellent training and extensive experience working with gender-diverse clients, and that expertise can be invaluable despite a therapist not sharing the same firsthand experiences.

How can I recognize a good therapist for working with gender-diverse clients?

An experienced therapist should be able to help clients explore their gender identity and expression, alleviate discomfort related to their gender identity, treat mental health challenges and trauma, address existing relationships and communication with family members and loved ones, and determine the next steps pertaining to nonmedical or medical gender-affirming interventions. To recognize a good therapist, clients can ask about these topics and explore their comfort and connection with the clinician.

How might I inquire about a therapist’s experience working with transgender clients?

Clients should feel comfortable asking therapists directly about their experience working with transgender or gender-diverse clientele. For example, clients may ask about the therapist’s training and education with regard to gender identity, how many trans clients they’ve worked with in the past, and what sorts of matters were discussed. You may wish to inquire how a therapist specifically supports the needs of transgender clients or clients questioning their gender identity. A good clinician who is nonetheless not the right fit for you is often happy to make referrals to others based on the concerns you articulate in a preliminary conversation.
