Thanks for stopping by. Let me tell you a little about me.

Expert ADHD, AUDHD  and Anxiety Support For Women

Are you a woman struggling with ADHD, AUDHD, and/or anxiety? You’re not alone; finding the right therapy and support can make all the difference. I specialize in helping women like you navigate these challenges with understanding, compassion, and practical strategies.

Tailored Support for Women with ADHD and Anxiety

My focus is on assisting women who face the unique challenges of ADHD and anxiety, often complicated by late diagnoses, learned masking behaviors, and burnout. I provide support through both one-on-one and group sessions designed to meet your specific needs.

If you're based in North or South Carolina, I offer direct therapeutic services backed by 27 years of professional experience. My approach is built on evidence-based techniques and a deep understanding of the societal obstacles women with ADHD face.

Understanding the Unique Challenges of ADHD in Women

Women with ADHD often find that conventional therapeutic approaches don’t address the root causes of their mental health challenges. My work is dedicated to helping you unmask your true self, recognize your inherent strengths, and build trust in your expertise and intuition.

The neurotypically designed world can be a significant source of anxiety and depression for women with ADHD or AUDHD, leading to the false belief that they are the problem. I aim to reframe this perspective, encouraging self-compassion, self-care, self-advocacy, and boundary-setting. Together, we can identify your values and strengths, empowering you to live authentically.

Empowering Your Journey

Navigating a world that often misunderstands you can be tough. Many of my clients need to unlearn societal-induced shame and internalized expectations. I’m here to remind you that you are not alone. Understanding how societal expectations impact your mental health is vital to healing.

Unmasking and finding your authentic self is a key goal we work towards. This journey improves emotional wellness and enhances physical health. Our minds, bodies, behaviors, environments, relationships, and genetic makeup are all interconnected. Unmasking can set off a positive cascade, leading to overall well-being.

Holistic and Compassionate Therapy

In my therapy practice, I initially focused on evidence-based practices like CBT and the medical model. Over time, I realized that these methods often fall short in addressing women's unique needs. My approach has evolved to explore our relationships with ourselves, others, the present moment, our bodies, and our spiritual practices, including our bonds with pets and nature.

I believe in the importance of a supportive, equal, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. My goal is to empower women with ADHD to regain control of their lives, regardless of their circumstances.

A Continuous Source of Support

I designed this website to assist my therapy clients and to offer valuable information for those looking to enhance their emotional health. Here, you will find a trustworthy and continuously updated source of knowledge.

If you're seeking support, whether one-on-one or in a group, I’m here to help. Together, we can navigate the unique challenges of ADHD and anxiety, helping you to unmask your true self and thrive.

About Me

I hold a Bachelor of Psychology from SUNY Albany and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from SUNY Buffalo. Since 1995, I've been working as a therapist in Charlotte. Over the years, I've gained extensive experience working with various issues, including sexual abuse trauma, anxiety, OCD, anxiety trauma, bipolar disorder, depression, and providing therapy for children and adolescents. In recent years, I've decided to specialize in working with neurodivergent women, focusing on their unique challenges and needs.
