In my graduate training program, I spent time working at a university-based career counseling center assisting students with school, career and job-searching strategies. If you spend the majority of your time at work, and find yourself struggling to enjoy it, then it is worthwhile to work with a career counselor to develop concrete strategies to overcome barriers to workplace fulfillment.
While working at a psychiatric group practice in Downtown Manhattan, I had the pleasure of working with many adults diagnosed with ADHD. Many of these people were newly diagnosed, so much of the work we did focused on developing direct, concrete skills related to executive function difficulties combined with the emotional consequences of having untreated ADHD. Additionally, I have worked with many pre-teens and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety or depression.
I have a background working in child welfare with a wide variety of children and families impacted by trauma. In addition to my experience working with individuals and families impacted by trauma, I have also been trained in EMDR, a specialized trauma treatment for people with specific and or complex trauma.
