ADHD is best understood by those who deal with the disorder on a daily basis. I have coached many ADHD clients who are looking for help with their personal and professional lives. I have studied the science and look forward to the day when the stigma related to ADHD dissipates. If you would like to work with a professional that gets it when it comes to ADHD then I am the coach for you.

41 Years Experience
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
I have worked as a psychotherapist for more than 25 years. During those years, I have worked with adolescents and young adults in a variety of settings – hospitals, day treatment facilities, universities, schools, and private practice. My first job out of social work school was at Bellevue Medical Center in New York City with adolescents. The adolescents with whom I worked at Bellevue gave me an education in humor, creativity, and strength. I obtained counseling positions at both UCLA and USC working with students on their academic challenges and the stress that impacts their success. It is fair to say that I have learned how to listen to adolescents, understand how to connect with them, and help them to gain confidence and the strategies to improve themselves and their situation. But I have also grasped the stress of parents have when raising adolescents and provided support, understanding, and tools to manage this important role. I’ve been training my whole life for this. I grew up with a mother who taught children with learning disabilities and a father who always gave back to the community recognizing those less fortunate. I learned early through volunteering at my mother’s school, volunteering at mental health helplines, supporting friends throughout high school, becoming a mom, and throughout my work in social work that providing another person with a patient and listening ear could provide support and understanding. It could be said that all that I have experienced, shared, and studied so far has been training me for the role I cherish that of psychotherapist.

Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
My clients are creative and curious. Problems are just a symptom of something deeper and my clients look for that deeper meaning that is informing their life. It's never as obvious as it may seem when you're feeling alone and sometimes an objective eye can waken your instincts.
19 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
I believe that no matter where you’ve been, what you’ve been through, or where you are currently, there is hope. I know that life can throw some crazy curve balls and I understand how painful and earth-shattering crisis can be. You may feel too weary to deal with what is happening (or you may be tired of always having to be so strong), but sometimes transformation can happen just by holding on. I would like to be the person who supports you in hanging on, even if the rope seems to be slipping through your fingers. Because I believe the future can look different than the present and the past. Things can change. So if you feel like giving up, please give me a call instead. Like a tree, I believe that in order to change the fruit (what is currently going on in our life), we need to look at the root. You can pick every orange off an orange tree hoping it will grow apples, but unless you change the root, it will just keep growing oranges. I believe that if we can get to the “heart” (or root) of what is happening, you will see different fruit begin to develop. Because I believe that many of life’s struggles stem from wounds of the heart. I want to help wounded hearts heal. I enjoy working with people of all cultures, beliefs and backgrounds. For those who are interested in Christian Counseling, I am also trained in integrating God into that healing process.
