Having ADHD myself, I understand the struggle to stay on task, be on time, sit still, pay attention when it's boring, etc.
“A different kind of therapy experience.” You are the expert on you. Maybe you're looking for something that's not "just talking". If you're struggling with anxiety, ADHD , depression, autism, OCD, etc., this very personalized approach, can make all the difference. If that’s you, or your child, maybe this is what you've been searching for. Maybe you’ve noticed you can focus better if you’re fidgeting or playing a game, taking a walk, doodling, or petting a dog. My clients seem to think more clearly, make better decisions, feel calmer and happier, because we use these strategies in session, combined with traditional talk therapy.

My extensive background has provided me with multidimensional knowledge of trauma, ADHD , PANS/PANDAS, OCD, anxiety and depresssion.
Do you find yourself withdrawing, disconnecting from others? Your ability to connect and heal is enhanced when your experiences are validated. You will find a safe, judgment-free zone here. I have found that people with ADHD tend to be creative, innovative dreamers who are energetic, quick-thinking, and drawn to novelty. Their brilliant ideas are often hampered by fears of vulnerability and failure to overcome perceived challenges. Experiencing the repeating energy cycle created by inspirational dreams to deflation following incomplete projects increases the risk of depression and anxiety. Thought by thought, change grows here.

Areas I specialize in include depression, anxiety, grief, loss, trauma, ADHD , substance abuse, identity and self-concept, and communication skills.
I strive to help people live happier, healthier, lives, by assisting them in overcoming obstacles that can impact their well-being. Change is often a reason that people enter counseling: change in self, family, work, relationships, or health. Counseling can help by addressing situations that cause distress, and offering ways to help manage these situations. Counseling begins with identifying and understanding needs, and working together to achieve identified needs and desires for counseling.

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.
