Areas of Expertise 


One of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders is ADHD. Often diagnosed in childhood, symptoms continue into adulthood and can be severe enough to impact school, home life, and even relationships. While primarily marked by difficulty with attention, organization, and impulsivity, additional symptoms include:

  • Losing track of time or assignments
  • Making careless mistakes
  • Procrastination
  • Being overwhelmed by lists
  • Relationship struggles
  • Sleep problems & Insomnia
  • Being argumentative or breaking rules
Getting Diagnosed 

There is no single test to diagnose ADHD, and reaching an accurate diagnosis may appear different for children or adults seeking care. However, both include an assessment, clinical interview, and often gathering a history of symptoms from family and teachers.


Like many mental health conditions, ADHD is often best treated with therapy and medication.

Children are often first offered behavior therapy, which focuses on training parents to provide effective parenting interventions. Medication may also be added depending on the childs and family's specific circumstances.

Adults often benefit from tandem treatment of therapy and medication. Learning executive functioning skills such as time management, organization, sleep hygiene and even emotional regulation are taught and improved upon in therapy. Starting medication assists in the individual's ability to consistently implement and learn the executive functioning skills mentioned above. However, like children, medication is not always needed to see improvements and is based on the individual's circumstances.


The experience of anxiety symptoms are typically a natural and healthy response to stress. Feeling uncomfortable and worrying before meeting someone new or attending a job interview is a healthy response. It becomes problematic if we find ourself avoiding situations that provoke anxiety or our attempts to not be anxious interfere with our relationships or daily life. This is when it could be an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety comes in different forms. Some types of anxiety include social anxiety, panic disorder, phobia-related disorders and generalized anxiety. Social anxiety is the most common of the anxiety disorders. When living with an anxiety disorder is common to experience some or all of the below anxious symptoms:

  • Fast heart beat
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Muscle tension
  • Thoughts about something bad happening
  • Difficulty not worrying
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Fear of objects or situations
  • Feeling dizzy or Restless
  • Sudden changes in breathing

Anxiety is a part of the human experience and thus we are not able to live a life free of anxiety symptoms. However, therapy can help an individual manage their response to anxiety symptoms. Medication can help when biology needs additional support to operate an healthy anxiety response in the body. While medication or therapy can treat anxiety disorders, both are often needed to gain long term symptom management.

Couples Counseling

There are a variety of relationships that exist and couples counseling can help people work on ways to strengthen their relationships. No relationship is without difficulty, and counseling is often effective in helping couples openly express conflict in a safe manner. Having a nonbias individual help lead sessions allows couples to work on their relationship without blaming or acting on other behaviors that lead to escalation. Couple can receive help for:

  • Difficulty resolving conflict
  • Communication struggles
  • Intimacy problems
  • Affairs
  • Parenting difficulties

Couples attend therapy together with a single or small amount of sessions where they are seen individually. The intention of therapy is to help couples recognize and learn to respect their partner’s internal experience and recognize how that impacts their partner’s behavior. Couples openly share their experience and receive education and homework in order to practice new skills or strengthen behaviors that are being underutilized. Sessions normally follow a protocol and concerns are often addressed in 10 to 15 visits.


The cause of depression could be due to a number of situations or experiences. It can affect adults, teens, and even children. Depression is a change in your overall emotional and physical well-being. Symptoms include physical changes along with shifts in thoughts and feelings. Most often depression progresses slowly. If you have been depressed you might notice:

  • Feeling angry or irritable
  • Physical aches and pain
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Changes in appetite
  • Lack of energy
  • Feeling as if you or your family are a burden
  • Feeling trapped and helpless to make your life better
Getting Diagnosed

A depression diagnosis is often made during an interview with a mental health professional or primary care doctor. They will assess if your symptoms have been active most days for more than two weeks. You will often be asked to complete a questionnaire to see how much these symptoms are impacting you and what level of intervention would best meet your needs.


Mild to moderate depression can be treated by a trained therapist and improve within a few visits. However, depending on the person's needs and situation, medication can be started alone, and symptoms often improve within about 4-6 weeks. However, if you have moderate to severe symptoms, you are normally encouraged to participate in both therapies and take medication simultaneously.

In therapy, you will learn to manage the physical symptoms of depression like sleep changes, appetite changes, and loss of energy. While also learning to respond effectively to thoughts and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.

Medication is a way of helping your brain get the nutrients it needs to function to get you back on track. Most recommended medications have been studied for years and are safe to use during and after pregnancy. Research has even shown children benefit from medication.

Intrusive, repetitive thoughts and feelings cause significant distress to individuals with Obsessive-compulsive disorder. Individuals with OCD may develop a phobia about germs, contracting an illness or worry they could unintentionally hurt someone. They may find themselves checking and rechecking doors, and appliances along with avoiding places or people.

Treatment is needed when individuals develop overly rigid patterns of behaviors that keep them from participating effectively in daily life. Standard therapeutic treatment is not enough. OCD requires exposure and response prevention strategies aimed at helping individuals tolerate their fears of uncertainty. Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is the gold standard of care for OCD and will help individuals find relief and get back to embracing their lives adaptively.

PTSD – Trauma

Post-traumatic stress disorder can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. PTSD is the body becoming hyperaware of the danger and changes are made in the brain in order to keep you safe. PTSD does not develop due to emotional weakness.

When someone has PTSD they often feel thier thoughts or memory of the event are painful, they experience intense emotions, notice bodily changes, and will often alter their behavior to avoid danger. While the symptoms of PTSD are present to protect the individual they are not adaptive and the individual is limited in their ability to participate effectively in life.

To help the mind change to a more adaptive strategy, individuals with PTSD are offered treatment that involves therapeutic exposure and cognitive restructuring or processing. This allows the individual to build the tolerance needed to continue to seek out the life they desire and heal.
