My experience with ADHD is not just academic, it's also personal. I have ADHD. ADHD, like autism, is only a "disorder" in the context of our culture. ADHD is a brain-based condition. That means ADHD brains are structured slightly differently and function slightly differently. People with ADHD appear "disordered" when measured by neurotypical standards. I view my role as helping you to understand how your brain works (as opposed to a neurotypical brain) and to help you harness your ADHD strengths. I will help you develop strategies for addressing challenges that your ADHD creates in your life.

ADHD. While it's uniquely presented in everyone, there are still commonalities. The challenge is usually to figure out how to work with YOUR presentation, and not apply a universal approach to each person. It's as unique as you are, and I strive to approach your challenges the same way. I myself have ADHD. I learn through education and study, as well as from people in my circle who have ADHD....and from YOU! I love when we find an approach or tips that work for YOU. When working with me, we find what works for YOU.

I have over 30 years' experience assessing and helping treat attention issues. First, we must determine if it is really ADD, or ADD with another issue, or simply another problem that interferes with attention and focus. Then, we design a set of interventions to address the actual underlying problem(s). Unfortunately, I often seen kids and teens who have been medicated for ADD but who don't actually have it. I'm not against medication, just against it if the patient doesn't actually have ADD. One of my articles:
