Mental and Behavioral Health Services in Massachusetts & Rhode Island
I believe that everyone has the ability to make changes toward leading more fulfilling, rewarding, and meaningful lives. To achieve this, I use a variety of evidence-based psychotherapy and behavior change techniques that focus on identifying your specific challenges, assessing your strengths and abilities, formulating your treatment goals, and then collaboratively working toward meeting these objectives. I provide you with a comfortable, supportive, and nonjudgmental atmosphere so you can achieve the emotional and physical well-being you are striving for. All appointments are being conducted via TeleHealth to maximize safety, while providing optimal convenience and flexibility.

Whereas medication helps to control the core symptoms of distractibility, short attention span and impulsivity, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), is quite effective at increasing the habits and skills needed for self-management. CBT for ADHD focuses on behavioral coaching techniques such as keeping routines, making lists for different tasks and activities, using a calendar for scheduling events, using reminders, breaking down large tasks into more manageable, smaller steps so that completing each part of the task provides a sense of accomplishment, and reducing distraction.
