About Us

How my journey began…

I began my journey learning how to navigate the world with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), experiencing first-hand the adversity and challenges that come with striving, achieving, relapsing and maintaining wellness and balance.

Sometimes your biggest obstacles can become your greatest positive focus in life. Dealing with ADHD has led me from childhood challenges, to diagnosis, to my ongoing therapist education and finally, I’m now on a mission to help others with ADHD and a variety of other challenges.

It has been a humbling journey fostered by awareness, understanding, compassion, support from many others, strength and courage. I understand and honor your courage in reading my message, and taking the next steps of your journey towards healing, wellness and balance.

Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.

– Brene Brown

I have been helping people with addictions and mental health issues since 2005, based on widely diverse training and work experience, including Attention Deficit Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions and other mental health concerns.

My approach in psychotherapy is also diverse – I do not offer only one method of treating all problems.

My approach takes into consideration your strengths, challenges, stressors and barriers while offering support and strategies that empower you.

I will collaborate with you and meet you where you are in your journey, and give you strategies that will give you the confidence and tools to overcome future challenges and adversity beyond the therapy environment.
