Counseling is a crossroads experience. You have come to a place in your life where you have decided that the challenges of your life are more than you can bear on your own. You are inviting me to walk with you on that journey. In humility with patience, gentleness, and encouragement I strive to help you figure out more effective ways to live, new ways to handle your emotions and solve problems, and relationship changes that make life more satisfying personally, or in your marriage and/or family.

I practice at Turning Point Counseling with 12 other clinicians/therapists. I primarily conduct psychological testing on children, ages 3-18 and adults of all ages. Most child and adolescent clients are referred to be evaluated for possible ADHD , Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, or Bipolar Disorder or other Mood Disorders. With adults I do the same type of testing but also have evaluated over 2000 adults who are required to have psychological screening prior to weight loss surgery or pain patients who are required to have psychological testing prior to receiving a spinal cord stimulator or pain pump.

However, the truth is: We DO recover, and I do mean WE. My professional knowledge comes from a masters degree in addiction psychology, and my practical experience comes from my own journey of addiction and recovery.

After many years as a nurse, a cancer diagnosis led me to change careers mid-life, and as an LCSW, I now assist others in overcoming their own life transitions and obstacles. Major life transitions, such as divorce, loss, moving, retirement, empty nest, debilitating illnesses, and trauma can cause upheaval, grief, and a tremendous amount of stress. I believe that life changes, even the difficult ones, can with intervention result in personal growth, and allow for greater self-discovery and awareness.

My main forms of therapy tend to be solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy and person centered with a priority in making changes in behavior and thinking. However, all forms of therapy are used in my practice including but not limited to narrative, reality, mindfulness, play therapy, some art therapy, and sand tray therapy to explore all facets of the self. I will use whatever works best for you. I believe that therapy is a place to explore uncomfortable emotions, issues, and trauma, as well as explore who you are, who you have been and what you want for your future with a focus on your strengths, resilience, and balance.

For over 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to listen as clients shared their story and trusted me to help. As an integrative therapist, I draw from a large and diverse “tool bag” of research-supported methods and strategies to help people gain insight, develop skills, and strengthen the resilience they need to be happier, healthier, and improve their relationships. Most of my clients are adults, but I work with all ages. Some clients are struggling with severe depression, anxiety, or recovery from past trauma. Others are just looking for some better coping skills or support through a difficult time.

We cannot control the weather, but we can join together to get through the storm until the sun shines again. I believe every individual has a unique story and a unique journey, and I have a desire to join with these individuals in helping them in their steps to achieve their unique goals towards healing, peace, and growth.

The story of your life will lead you through many ups and downs. Sometimes, you get stuck in a low spot and cannot find a way out. At other times, a chapter ends, and you struggle to turn the page and begin the next adventure. Maybe a dark moment lives in your past but refuses to stay there. Perhaps you are a parent watching your child struggle with their own story, wishing you could just swoop in and save the day. As a former High School English teacher, I have always known the power of stories. As a counselor, my goal is to empower my clients to take control of their story and write a more hopeful future.

I believe creating change is at the heart of therapy. I find people often feel overwhelmed, depressed, angry, or even just stuck with how their lives are going. You may be hoping for things to improve with your children, partner, work, yourself, or things in general but aren’t able to see any progress despite how much effort you put in. My goal is to help you make the change you desire and find greater meaning and purpose within your family, relationships, spirituality, work, and other areas of your life. My hope is for you to be able to find joy in life’s simple pleasures and cherish the precious moments that come along the way.

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.
