As experienced therapists’ we understand the stigma associated with ADHD.  We help you with your emotional struggles and support you in speaking up for your rights at school and work.


The term Depression is often used to describe feeling sad or down. However, Depression or Depressive Disorders are more serious than temporary sadness. 

Depression is treated with psychotherapy and antidepressant medications. Many patients find the combination of both treatments is necessary for their improvement. There are different therapy modalities to use by the clinician however, having a therapeutic connection with your therapist plays a very significant role in your successful therapeutic outcome. 


Having anxiety is like being worried or feeling nervous almost all the time, it’s chronic. It’s that monkey around your neck that doesn’t let go. 

You’re not alone. Addressing your anxiety alone is difficult. Work with one of our therapists who will help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and responses.

Intake Session

When you Schedule Free Consultation, we’ll talk on the phone for 20-30 minutes. The goal is to answer your brief questions and assess if we’re the right match.

If we both agree we’re a match, we’ll schedule an Intake Session when we’ll spend 90 minutes talking about the challenges you’re having, answering your detailed questions, and affirming you’re ready to get to work.

counseling Process

Counseling is a deeply personal choice that can arise at any time in someone’s life. Waiting for a problem or mental health crisis to occur isn’t the only time our clients seek support.  Support is often needed during a stressful or emotionally draining time. 

Counseling services and the time you’ll need are unique for every client. We’ll work together during regularly scheduled sessions. Be aware, the number of counseling sessions may be based on your health insurance coverage.

1.  Research and understand your insurance coverage.

Payment is due when services are rendered, and the client or guarantor is responsible. Due to the wide variety of insurance policies, we cannot guarantee your policy or insurance provider will cover the services provided. 

The client and/or guarantor are ultimately responsible for payment since the services are provided to the client.

2.  Schedule an Intake Session

During the Intake Session, we’ll discuss your challenges and what you struggle with. Once the Intake has concluded, we’ll briefly review your treatment goals and schedule the next session. 

3.  Counseling Sessions

We provide individual, couples, or family services to anyone over 8 years old. The sessions are typically 60-minutes via Telebehavioral.
