17 Years Experience
Psychologist, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist
I work with a wide variety of common and uncommon issues, with adults, teens and children ... non-drug approaches for ADHD; testing and treating children, teens, and adults; using therapeutic techniques and helping parents with children's problem behaviors. I've spent years assessing and treating ADHD and have a deep understanding of a variety of approaches to treat it, including medication, nutritional/herbal, and neurofeedback. I help adults get through depression, anxiety, relationship and work problems, and to move from getting out of a problem to enhancing and finding meaning and engagement in life. Your life should, ultimately, be the antidepressant!

Many women find themselves struggling in their relationships with others and themselves. You may find yourself working so hard to please everyone else that you lose sight of what you want and need. You also may find yourself stuck in the same dating or relationship patterns that leave you feeling disconnected and unsatisfied. As a result, you may struggle to feel fully present in your life or feel like you’re repeating past patterns in your dating life, relationships, and daily life. You may start to second guess yourself or focus on what others think instead of what you feel is right for you. These patterns may leave you feeling “not good enough” and wondering if you’ll ever figure out how to live the life you desire. Fortunately, you can overcome these challenges to create lasting, healthy, and fulfilling connections with yourself and others with therapy that’s designed to meet your unique needs.
