We offer individual counseling. We aim to meet the therapeutic goals established between the therapist and client. Because each client is unique, we understand that the number of therapy sessions may vary based on the needs of the client. We will work with each individual client to ensure that he or she receives the appropriate number of sessions necessary to be effective, supportive, and therapeutic. During your first session, the therapist will learn more about you, ask about your reasons for pursuing therapy, and give you an opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about therapy. As you move forward with counseling, the therapist will become a collaborator who will offer support and encourage you to participate in identifying challenges and goals.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
The symptoms of ADHD in adults can lead to struggles with job performance and strained interpersonal relationships. Common symptoms of ADHD include restlessness, procrastination, and forgetfulness, as well as difficulty concentrating, following directions, staying on task, getting organizing, or completing work on time. Many individuals who exhibit these symptoms endure years of negative feedback from others. As a result, low self-esteem can emerge and lead to feelings of anger that are difficult to manage. When anger intersects with ADHD symptoms, life can seem out of control. Outbursts of anger can become frequent and damage work and personal relationships. A therapist can help you learn to manage symptoms and gain control over your emotions. Using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques, you and your therapist can work together to identify patterns in thinking and explore the way thoughts and core beliefs about yourself and the world impact the way you behave and feel. Your therapist will help you identify goals and develop strategies for achieving them. You will learn techniques that will empower you to manage anger, stay focused, get organized, think positively, and improve relationships with others.
