I specialize in neurodiversity, from Autism to ADHD , as well as providing support to the families that love these brilliant & interesting thinkers.
I work with a variety of clients with a variety of needs. The thing that most of them have in common is a feeling of being a bit stuck. Many of my clients are experiencing transitions in life, transitions into new work environments or life phases. Other clients are needing to​ make a transition & I can help them weigh their options & process their choices. I believe at my core that none of us were intended to do life alone. My clients’ goals are usually pretty simple, they want to be more present in their lives and move forward in a meaningful way.

I graduated from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico with my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Art Therapy and I have a strong background in childhood development, attachment, and ADHD .
Do you ever feel like words fall short of expressing how you truly feel? I understand how intimidating reaching out for help can be, but art therapy allows us to express ourselves with our visual voice rather than words. Even better yet, art therapy does not require any prior experience or creative skill because it is about the process rather than the final product. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients of all ages and I am passionate about providing a safe and creative space for healing and growth where you feel supported, seen, heard, and understood.

Through a unique combination of Biblically-sound therapy, training, and coaching, I help families reduce the effects of ADHD , anxiety, divorce, and trauma.
Exhausted. Hoping to have a good day with your child, but hope ran out when he had another tantrum. Praying for some relief. The yelling and screaming and the anxiety are becoming unmanageable. Just one good day. That's not asking too much, is it? Lots of advice but nothing has worked. Or it works for a while and then it goes back to the same old thing. Fear of what might happen means staying home most of the time. Surely there is a better way. For you and your child.

My focus also includes teens, parenting, ADHD and trauma.
Hello! My name is Jeffrey Proctor and I am an LPC. Everyone wants to feel like they are valuable, and we are all valuable, however, it’s often hardest for us to see our own worth. It’s times like these that life often seems to have no purpose. Many factors can cause us to feel this way, including: trauma, negative relationships, inability to believe in our full potential, lack of support, and not having the tools to change. This can leave us feeling stuck. I am here to help you find your way to peace within yourself.

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.
