Have you struggled with issues concerning impulsiveness, distractibility, or hyperactivity? If so you may be one of millions of adults or children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Many adults suffer with these issues and never know they are part of a larger diagnosis of ADHD. I have provided therapy for several years to individuals who are experiencing these symptoms, but these alone may not be the whole picture. You may also experience anxiety, depression, learning issues or relationship struggles. Together we can assess if you are struggling with ADHD and find solutions to your difficulties.

Everyone including me, is going through or has gone through something at some point in their life. And when we do, sometimes we just need a little support, a little encouragement, a listening and caring ear or a little guidance and push in the right direction. We don't want to be judged but we want someone to understand. We want someone who is going to be there for us and support us in making the best decision for our next step or transition in life. No matter your circumstance, we can and will get through this together and it all starts with a conversation, so let's have one...

You have been trying your best to make things work for your life, but it seems too difficult because nothing seems to be changing. You feel sad about where you are in life and unsure as to what will happen in your future. The thought of not knowing what to do makes you feel depressed. You fear you will never get what you want, and often question if you are doing something wrong. You are always tired and overwhelmed with everything happening around you and all you want is to feel happy, peaceful, and worthy of love and feel confident in doing so.

What type of Philadelphia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Philadelphia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
