My Approach to Helping
Are you stuck on the hamster wheel of change? Going around and around and arriving at the same place no matter what you do? Most people have a pretty good idea of why they are struggling. Many even know what they should be doing about it. The hang-up always seems to be; getting from knowing what to do, to actually doing it. We live in a society that has set us up to misunderstand ourselves. When ideals are based on people who exude high-functioning abilities and perfectly disciplined personality types, it's easy to feel inadequate. The truth is, no one actually lives up to those idealistic expectations. In my opinion, there is nothing inherently "wrong" with anyone. There is nothing that needs to be "fixed". I want to help you understand what's really going on between you and your environment. Are you ready to get off of that hamster wheel?

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I have lived the majority of my life as someone with undiagnosed and untreated ADHD.Despite appearing to be a capable adult, I used to miss deadlines. I often left my friends read because I had replied in my mind. No matter the approach, laundry remained my arch-nemesis. Feeling like I had forgotten something haunted me every moment of the day. Probably because I had forgotten something. Being diagnosed with ADHD wasn't a surprise, especially since all the clues were right there. Learning how I had been misunderstanding ADHD is what actually changed my life. No wonder everyday tasks seemed so difficult. My brain functions differently! I am passionate about using what I have learned to help others set up life systems that better serve the ways our brains function.
