  • ADHD Treatment
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (often referred to casually as ADD ) is a disorder that originates in childhood and continues into later life for approximately 5% of adults. ADHD can have a profound effect on an individuals ability to succeed in educational, occupational, and social settings. Fortunately, there is extensive research outlining effective treatments for ADHD in both adults and children/teens. When appropriate treatment methods are used in the therapy, individuals often make incredible improvements and find the quality of life and success they hope for. The majority of my practice is dedicated to treating Adult ADHD. I also have extensive experience working with children/teens with ADHD. However, when working with youth, I require the parents/caregivers to be involved in treatment. I have found that this typically shortens treatment and provides better results.

  • Couples Therapy
  • Human beings are incredibly social and drawn to deep connections with others. When relationships are positive, supportive, and symbiotic, one’s quality of life can increase exponentially. Unfortunately, due to prior relationship experiences, lack of adequate relationship skills, or even the pressures of life and family, one can find themselves struggling in their most cherished relationships. All too often couples fall victim to repetitive negative interactional patterns and lack of nurturance of their relationship. I believe that it is everyone’s right to have deep and enduring relationships with the people they love and care for. My approach to Couples Counseling is very pragmatic and goal focused. I work in a supportive way with couples to highlight the areas of struggle, and to provide real life skills and techniques to help them thrive. I am a firm believer that Couples Therapy should be and feel productive. I work with couples to make sure that we are moving forward in a way that is meaningful to them.

  • Cognitive Therapy
  • Every feeling, behavior, choice, and direction we choose in any given moment is driven by thoughts. Our daily experience is governed by a patterns or thinking that lead to patterns of feeling and behaving. We often don’t notice our thoughts unless they are negative and even then we tend to take them as fact. The reality is that everyone at sometime in their day, week, month, year, or life, falls victim to patterns of thinking that don’t serve them well and are often just plain false. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an incredibly pragmatic therapeutic practice that empowers people to understand and be aware of their thoughts and the effect thoughts have on their life. CBT tends to be a shorter term type of therapy aimed at teaching individuals a very important set of skills that they can use for a lifetime. There is significant research on the power of CBT to alleviate Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD. Fortunately, this evidence based treatment method also can lead to the improvement of relationships, personal health, education and occupational performance.

  • Parent Coaching
  • Parenting is one of the most fulfilling experiences life has to offer. However, children do not come with an instruction manual, making things very difficult at times. In addition to this, the techniques that parents often use intuitively don’t have the expected result and can even contribute to struggles at home or school. My work with parents is aimed at providing important skills and techniques, while fostering deeper connections and decreased conflict between parent and child. I partner with parents/caregivers to help them build the confidence and insights needed to be the very best parents and guardians they can.

  • ADHD Research Image
  • In 2014 Phil Boissiere, MFT launched the Adult ADHD Treatment Research Project to gather and interpret treatment experiences on a large scale. To date, the survey has brought in responses from over 10 countries and is beginning to yield important information about the types of treatments adults with ADHD are receiving. There is still a need for participants. Please visit the study for more information or to participate anonymously.
