The first sub specialty is in the area of problematic or compulsive use of drugs, alcohol, gambling, or the Internet (sexual or not). Here, I work with individuals who
are struggling with these difficulties, and/or with their families.
I am also a counseling resource for people with solid addiction
recovery who wish to see a general therapist with an understanding
of that part of their lives.
The second sub specialty is in the area of AD/HD (Attention
Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity). I work on a counseling
basis with individuals and/or couples with this diagnosis. This
may entail facilitating the adjustment to the diagnosis and its
impact on personal and family life. It may be general therapy where
knowledge of challenges as well as the strengths is crucial to
a successful outcome. My work in this area often is done jointly
with a career and life coach who also has this specialty.
