Telehealth Only

Starting a new path can be difficult, and everyone can use a little help moving forward. Whether you’re struggling with ADHD, depression, anxiety, significant life changes, family and relationship problems, or simply normal life challenges, it takes courage to take positive steps toward change. Accepting help is an excellent first step toward improving control over the direction of your life. So let me help you get re-oriented on a healthier path toward a happier, more stress-free version of yourself.

Therapy can be an invaluable opportunity for personal growth and self-discovery. Together, we’ll work to identify the underlying causes of unhealthy thought patterns and behaviors that may be holding you back. And by making your mental health and wellness a higher priority, you can begin to pave the way toward a happier, more fulfilling life. I’m here to support you as you take that first step toward change.

Additional Comments: ADHD can bring challenges to every aspect of life. Psychotherapy is one of many tools available to help you overcome those challenges and thrive by harnessing control of your natural self. As an Adult ADHD Specialist, I provide therapy from an ADHD-informed perspective to help you better understand the unique complexity of your ADHD and how it affects success at work, at home, and in relationships.

We’ll focus on finding solutions to address problems such as procrastination, inability to get started, distractibility, disorganization, emotional dysregulation, task avoidance, paralysis, poor time management, uneven productivity, and relationship problems. Learn how problems like low self-esteem, rejection sensitivity, and negative self-talk can contribute to depressive episodes, anxiety, and a lack of progress on goals.
