ADHD therapists in Crystal Lake, Illinois IL
Based on recent research, the treatment of ADHD could be effective without the use of medications in general and stimulants (e.g., Adderall, Ritalin, Vyvans, etc.). The use of dialectical behavior therapy skills training (DBT-ST) has been showing to be effective in reducing and managing its symptoms.

Seeking help is a powerful step to improving your quality of life. Talking to someone about whatever your concerns are is something that almost anyone can benefit from, but many people are afraid to reach out. If you are considering therapy or coaching, I applaud you, and I really do want to help you find what you need to feel POWERFUL and help you develop the tools to have peace in your life. I enjoy working with diverse clients, and have treated patients on the inpatient as well as outpatient basis. I began providing therapy in 1996, and have worked full time in several local hospitals before deciding to work full time in outpatient private practice. Though I work with many populations, I enjoy helping individuals with issues of trauma as well as working with couples. I work with all age ranges and have helped clients with a range of diagnosis. I use a variety of techniques, including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and EMDR. I am also a Certified Hypnotist and a trained mediator.

18 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
I was diagnosed with ADHD AFTER I was married AND working in the therapeutic field. I was shocked to realize that what I had thought was anxiety was actually internalized ADHD. Starting a stimulant medication gave me new clarity and a sense of focus I had never experienced before. I am now able to implement mindful strategies such as deep breathing, times of silence and stillness, yoga, positive affirmations and moving and exercising my body which all help to restore my mind/body connection and allow me to be fully present in the HERE and NOW. I am also aware of how my physical environment and daily structure and routine greatly impact me and am able to intentionally cultivate those to my greatest benefit. It has also helped tremendously in my understanding of my relationship with my partner. I will be excited to share that experience and knowledge with you as an adult with ADHD and/or as a parent raising a child with ADHD.
