Message to clients

North Carolina-wide adolescent and adult ADHD care. If you have a long-standing history of ADHD, have been newly diagnosed, or are seeking an evaluation for symptoms you are concerned might represent ADHD, you are welcome to this clinic. I recognize that ADHD often is attached to many other conditions. Whether it’s anxiety, depression, insomnia, learning disabilities, impulse control problems, internet addiction, or other substance use disorders, I work with you to non-judgmentally identify and develop an achievable treatment strategy that will work for you.

My goal is to provide compassionate, holistic, patient-centered, and goal-oriented care to the treatment of your ADHD. I recognize that ADHD is the most responsive mental health condition to pharmacologic treatment. As a result, I do use medication to treat this condition. Together we will also track your treatment response with objective outcome measures.

We help you manage your behavioral health. Whether you are just taking the first step in bringing back joy to your life, or you are resuming mental health care, we are by your side.
