Do you have ADD or ADHD?* I can provide supportive ADD and ADHD therapy in Encino, CA. Please ask yourself the following:
Are you easily distracted?
Do you frequently lose things and have trouble getting organized?
Do you procrastinate or have difficulty completing tasks?
Do you have difficulty keeping your mind on social conversations?
Are you forgetful?
Do you have problems following directions?
Do you frequently interrupt others?
Most people experience these difficulties from time to time. Still, a person with ADHD finds that these problems significantly impair their ability to function at work, school, and social settings.
Combining my expertise gained as a special education teacher with clinical experience as a psychotherapist, I can provide therapy targeted to your needs. In addition to supportive therapy to address the emotional issues that often result from ADHD, I can help you develop specific techniques to navigate work, academic, and social environments. By learning and practicing organizational skills, relaxation techniques, and motivational principles, clients gain a greater sense of control over their lives and improve their self-confidence.
*A formal diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may be required for some treatment plans that include prescription medication, special accommodations at school or work, and for insurance reimbursement for therapy. A qualified psychologist makes this diagnosis, and I can provide referrals for you.
