I have worked with many children/teens/adults with ADHD and executive functioning disorders, both in diagnosing as well as treatment recommendations outside of medication only.
15 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist, MA, AMFT, Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
I approach adult ADHD with a blend of supportive interventions and strategies, emphasis on self-compassion, and appreciation for the strengths in difference that neurodivergence can yield. I hold an intention to both alleviate distress stemming from symptoms, while also supporting clients in constructing a life that plays to their strengths and breaks the patterns of shame, adrenaline and broken trust in self that often occur with later-in-life diagnosis.

Working with clients diagnosed with both autism and ADHD, as well as being diagnosed myself, has allowed me to gain a deep understanding of this diagnosis and how to address the challenges and strengths that come along with it.

27 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist, Marriage and Family Therapist
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years experience helping adolescents, family, couples and individuals reach a happy and fulfilling life. I provide a safe and compassionate environment where I welcome any experience with no judgments, no matter what the struggle is.
I work with clients with an ADHD diagnosis, using didactic approaches derived from the science of productivity. I also support the use of psychotropic medications as appropriate. While ADHD may be biological in etiology, the psychological ramifications of living with ADHD can be devastating; feeling like a failure from early educational experiences, clients benefit from the support psychotherapy offers.

I believe therapy should lead to better decisions, as well as improved quality of life and relationships.

13 Years Experience
Counselor/Therapist, LMFT, LPCC, EMDR Certified
As an ADHDer myself, I work with adult ADHDers from a strengths-based, non-pathologizing perspective. ADHD is a natural variation in brain functioning that comes with its own perks and pitfalls. I can help you identify and celebrate your unique strengths, such as creativity, curiosity, enthusiasm, and resilience. I can also help you cope with the difficulties you may face in a world that's not designed for your neurotype, such as time management, organizing tasks, staying focused, and other executive functioning challenges. I don't want to change or fix you, but rather help you to find what works for you and respect what you want and need. I respect your autonomy and will work with you to make goals that are meaningful and realistic for you. I also understand how hard it can be to face stigma and discrimination because of ADHD, and I offer you a safe and supportive space where you can be yourself without judgement or shame. My approach is based on the ideas of neurodiversity-affirming therapy, as well as the latest research on ADHD and my own personal experience.
