ADHD/Neurodivergent Support and Skills Group for Adults


As a member of the ADHD/Neurodivergent community myself, I understand the highs and lows of having a brain that works just a bit differently. I'm excited to share my insights as a clinical psychologist, Zen teacher, and neurodivergent adult with you! This will be an ongoing group with a focus on support and structured skill-building modules from the best available, evidence-based CBT research. I'm currently recruiting group members with a tentative plan to start the group in late May/early June. Message me today to learn more!

Group Therapist

Dr. Andy Santanello is a Clinical Psychologist located in Baltimore, MD. Dr. Santanello specializes in evidence-based psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for many common problems. He especially enjoys working with people who have an interest in mindfulness, who might be a bit more on the introverted side, and who struggle with Adult ADHD. He understands what it’s like to navigate the social world while balancing the legitimate need for alone time to recharge. Many of Dr. Santanello’s clients struggle with anxiety, attention, doubts, procrastination, feeling unmotivated, depressed or just "stuck" as they move through challenging times. He helps these clients become unstuck and to move forward in their lives.

Dr. Santanello’s approach to therapy draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). He collaborates with his clients to set mental health goals and always keeps those goals in mind throughout sessions. He helps clients determine what’s in their control and what’s out of their control. Dr. Santanello also practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a therapy approach that brings together thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. He teaches clients how to identify negative thought patterns that influence their daily emotions and change those patterns into healthier ones. The goal of each session is to identify an "action plan" so that his clients can start making important changes in their lives using the new skills and perspectives developed during therapy. Over time, these new skills and perspectives become healthy habits.

Dr. Santanello earned his PsyD from LaSalle University. He practices Zen Buddhism and is a teacher (sensei) in the White Plum Asanga, which continues to show him the value of mindfulness in his life and the lives of others. His style is compassionate with a side of humor, as he believes that healing can include silliness and laughter when appropriate.
