Therapy, or counseling, can mean different things to different people. To me, it means having a trusted professional help you navigate through life, identifying what's holding you back from being your best self in your day to day life, relationships, career, whatever it may be.
Here are some of the areas I commonly treat. If yours isn’t listed below, please reach out so we can discuss your needs. If I’m not a good fit, I’ll be happy to refer you to another trusted professional.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) doesn’t just affect kids. Nearly 8 million adults in the U.S. suffer from ADHD.
ADHD is characterized by inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity — or any combination of the three. ADHD affects all facets of life: work, school, relationships, and everyday tasks.
I am dedicated to the public awareness of ADHD and the surrounding social issues and stigmas that accompany it.
I appeared in the documentary ADD and Loving it?! 2009 and more recently was interviewed by Dr. Stephen Snyder regarding Women with ADHD. I also trained under Sari Solden, a well-known and respected figure in the ADHD arena.
Together, we’ll identify the structure and practical tools you’ll need to better manage your life, as well as the impact ADHD has had on your relationships.
We all feel down from time to time. But how do you know when your sadness has surpassed what’s “normal” and has become a cause for concern?
Depression can manifest itself in some of the following symptoms:
- Lack of sleep, or too much sleep
- Significant weight changes (whether gained or lost)
- Anger or irritability
- Significant loss of interest in daily activities
- Loss of energy
- Self-hatred, feelings of guilt and worthlessness
- Trouble focusing
- Reckless behavior
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Thoughts of suicide
- Unexplained aches and pains
My #1 goal is that you accept where you are in your own journey — and stop apologizing for it.
Through practical behavior changes and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I will help you release your shame and feelings of hopelessness, and reclaim a sense of empowerment in your life and relationships.
Unlike the mild anxiety one might feel before a stressful event like speaking in public, anxiety disorders can last months and worsen if left untreated.
Anxiety disorders affect nearly 40 million American adults each year. They often go hand in hand with substance abuse, eating disorders or other mental illnesses. Anxiety disorders pervade all facets of life, making it difficult to function.
Although there are several different types of anxiety disorders, at the core of all the symptoms is excessive, irrational fear and dread.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
- Panic Disorder
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
I’ll help you navigate your feelings in a safe, nonjudgmental environment, and together we’ll change the thoughts that support your fears and develop new behaviors for reacting to situations that trigger your anxiety.
Interpersonal Relationships & Change
- Are you struggling in your relationships?
- Do you have trouble forming or keeping relationships?
- Are you having difficulty setting healthy boundaries in your relationships?
- Do you have difficulty navigating or coping with change in your life?
Interpersonal relationships are paramount to your mental and emotional well-being. Friendships, co-workers, family relationships, romantic relationships — these all impact our daily lives like few things can. And they have a ripple effect on the rest of our lives.
So if you feel like your relationships are unhealthy, it’s crucial to address the dynamics of those relationships.
Similarly, life changes can be very daunting and stressful, and they can take a toll on your well-being if you don’t have healthy ways of coping.
No matter what life stage you’re in, I’ll help you navigate through your relationships and life transitions so you can come through them better, stronger, healthier, and happier.
