I love working and helping people embrace their gifts and work with rather than against their ADHD.
Justine has been my answer to understanding my life issues because of ADD. I tried to find help in the past for various "issues" and left the office with the feeling they just don't get me. Justine was a different experience. After listening to my stories, she started to show me how my "issues" were not only link to ADD but also how I was raised and treated because of my ADD. It was a lot to process but she did not give up on me. As long I did the work she assigned, i got to a better place each week. While ADD is her specialty, she has a broad background in other issues. If you feel something is not right with you, I suggest you call Justine. If you tried to get help and have not gotten satisfaction from anybody else, I recommend strongly you call Justine.
She was knowledgeable and direct. She helped me understand my ADHD and gave me tools that I could use to solve problems that had plagued me for years and other therapists never seemed to be able to explain.
She is the only one out of 3 psychiatrists and 5 other therapists that took the time to look deep into my husbands childhood, as well as his present situation, and was the only one to get him to understand himself and learn to have the confidence to do some pretty hard work toward a positive change in his/our lives. The compassion and patience she has shown us is so much appreciated. I have recommended her to so many others because she has proven time and time again that she is in her position as a therapist for all the right reasons. I have also seen wonderful results in others that I have recommended to her. If there was a way to give her more than five stars, I absolutely would.
Absolutely incredible. I have worked with her for years, and she has not only helped me navigate my ADD through high school and college but also how to better my relationship with my mom and most importantly how I view myself and body. I constantly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to listen and guide them. As a woman in my 20s, life can get so hard and I am forever grateful for Miss ADD!!
I offer my clients a free consultation to learn more about them and their symptons, what's worked in the past and what hasn't, and get a better understanding of how I can help them improve their symptoms.
I moved to Southern California in August of 2004 and decided to go to Graduate School, and get a masters in clinical psychology. I graduated from Pepperdine University in 2009. I was able to start a private practice, after passing my license exams. I am also certified in EMDR for PTSD, and trauma.
I specialize in working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, who are challenged with the executive function deficits associated with ADHD.I also work with clients that have experienced trauma, depression and anxiety.
I have ADHD, so it enables me to walk in my clients shoes, which I think is important part of my understanding of their symptoms and needs.
