My Ideal Client

If you have found yourself feeling lost, hopeless, or overwhelmed - you don't have to face this alone. We would work well together if you are a professional, parent, or young adult struggling with ADHD or have a child with ADHD ; are a parent recovering from generational trauma ; or an adult living with the pain or grief and loss. Give yourself the chance to thrive.

My Approach to Helping

Whatever your situation, you deserve relief. Finding the right support for your family system and for yourself will play a critical role in creating calm in your world. I have developed expertise in generational and family systems trauma utilizing trauma-informed practices and family systems theory ; healing trauma of grief and loss through trauma-informed modalities alongside mindfulness, expressive art therapy, and seeking safety model ; and working with individuals and family systems experiencing ADHD through behavioral therapy, social and parenting skills training, mindfulness training, and family systems work. When working with ADHD in children, it is important to work with parents on their own skills and how they can offer support to their children with these new tools. Working with me you will receive guidance through the therapeutic process that is non-judgmental, enlightened by an understanding of family, societal, and cultural systems, and focuses on you before a diagnosis.

My Values as a Therapist

All humans are worthy of love and belonging, no matter our experiences, perceived deficits, or what others may have led us to believe. Many of us are disenfranchised about our own self worth by the world around us, or the life we have experienced. Through engagement in the therapeutic process we can find our voice, strength, and most true selves allowing us to live happier healthier lives. I believe that above all else, you deserve to live a life of inner peace, health, and happiness by your own definition. I am queer affirming and believe we are all valuable exactly as we are.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Family Systems External link

    Integral therapy for ADHD in your family system, healing from trauma, and grief and loss support. A form of psychotherapy that helps individuals resolve their problems in the context of their family units, where many issues are likely to begin. The first stop in working with me to understand and contextualize the challenges you are facing.

  • Expressive Art Therapy External link

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) External link

    Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. This therapy model supports individuals with ADHD, healing from trauma, and coping with grief and loss.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    CBT is a type of therapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. Together you will focus on changing automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts. This therapy supports ADHD, trauma, and grief.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • ADHD External link

    Receiving an ADHD diagnosis for yourself or your loved one can be both relieving and overwhelming. Finding the right support for your family system and for yourself will play a critical role in creating calm in your world. While ADHD is a chronic lifelong condition, it is treatable, manageable, and conquerable. The best decision you can make for yourself and your loved ones is to seek support to learn the skills and address the fears associated with impaired functioning due to ADHD.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    The finality of the end of a life can leave you looking for answers, hoping for some kind of relief from the hole left in your world. But relationships don’t end with death, they are only transformed. As painful as it can be to hear right now, it is true that you will someday be okay again. In grief counseling you won’t be asked to be “over it” on any timeline other than you own. You will receive gentle support, guidance, and a reminder that you are not alone in this.

  • Historical Trauma External link

    Transgenerational trauma can have significant impacts on individuals and family systems. It can be hard to see the ways we pass the habits and behaviors of our parents and family systems onto our own children. Fortunately, trauma survivors are highly resilient people, and your strength and resilience is also something you can pass on to your children.
