Professionally...

My work with clients includes

  • Supporting those grappling with anxiety and depression.  We roll up our sleeves together to increase coping and activation of new behaviors while decreasing suffering. .  
  • Supporting those, as both a counselor and a coach, living with ADHD and those living with those that are living with ADHD ;-)  I have a special interest in ADHD and a legion of energy to help individuals and couples learn how to navigate the journey of learning about, making peace with, and thriving with ADHD.  In addition to my direct client work, I also work with therapists delivering training and workshops to impart new ways of thinking and working with ADHD.  
  • Supporting change associated with a behavioral or chemical addiction (alcohol, drugs, eating, shopping, gambling, sex). This includes attaining abstinence as well as managing the transition from abstinence to recovery.  
  • Supporting couples, using the Gottman method, in building a sound relationship house and acquiring tools to get unstuck

I am a licensed mental health counselor and PhD doctoral candidate in Counselor Education & Supervision. I hold CADC I, CGAC I certifications to treat addictions.  I used an ACT based approach to coaching meaning values drive goal setting.

Personally...

One of my strengths is that my life experiences have left me humble and open to possibilities- I'm a possibilitarian!  I have participated in multiple levels of social class, lived in multiple countries and cultures, and have had from good health to challenged health. Each broad stroke of exposure has had a gift embedded in it and lessons….many, MANY lessons!

I love music, movie making, writing and generally play reveille to any and all muses in the room with us to harness the many gifts you have received from your life experiences.  We can accomplish and overcome in remarkable, meaningful ways.   

My expertise lies in the following

  • Adult ADHD
  • Partners of Adult ADHD

  • Counselor Education for ADHD

  • Anxiety/Panic

  • Depression

  • Addictions

  • Couples (Gottman trained)
