Specializing as an ADHD Psychologist in Philadelphia

Marcy M. Caldwell, Psy.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment and assessment of adult ADHD.

People with ADHD often know what to do, but have a hard time doing it. Medication can help with sustaining attention and energy. However, most adults with ADHD still struggle to meet their goals because they have difficulty getting started, organizing, prioritizing and staying on task. This is where I can help. I can pinpoint exactly what it is that gets in your way, strategize ways around those hurdles and then provide the accountability needed to keep you on task.

ADHD is a performance issue and therefore concrete, performance-based solutions are necessary. However, these performance issues also have long-standing emotional ramifications including sadness, frustration, anger and low self-esteem. These emotional aspects of ADHD need to be addressed with warmth and compassion in order to assure that they don’t further impede progress.

Many therapists work only with one aspect of ADHD treatment- either they focus on solutions or they deal with the emotional ramifications of the disorder. I have both the ability and the experience to effectively deal with both in a way that respects their impact and importance. I concentrate on hands-on techniques to help you find strategies to help your symptoms but I also discuss, process and address the emotions that come along with them. By working on both of these aspects of the ADHD picture you can find greater peace and success more quickly and reliably. Please click here to read more about ADHD Therapy.

About

Christina Mitrofanis, Psy.D. M.Ed.

Having ADHD can sometimes feel like a daily battle with yourself to accomplish tasks, maintain relationships, and attend to your own needs, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Learning how to work with your ADHD rather than against it can be a transformative experience, and it would be my honor to accompany you on this delicate balancing act of a journey. Together in therapy, we can work to tackle the challenges of ADHD while also bolstering your strengths and coming into and honoring your most authentic self. I work to create a therapeutic space that is compassionate, constructive, and creative, and I can’t wait to welcome you in.

Before joining Rittenhouse Psychological Services, I received a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a Master’s in Human Sexuality Studies from Widener University. Throughout my education and clinical experience, I have had the privilege of working with a great number of clients from all walks of life, and this breadth of experience has given me an appreciation for the unique circumstances and life stories that each person brings with them when they choose to seek out therapy.

I’ve worked with clients to manage substance use, severe mental illness, and school stressors, among various difficulties and diagnoses. I have also had experience and specific training in working with LGBTQ+ clients, and as a queer person myself, this is a special passion of mine. All of these experiences have helped me to develop a clinical style that is flexible, practical, and client-focused. My goal is to help you gain a greater understanding of yourself and what works for you and to help you use that information to construct a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

With everything going on in your world, ADHD may feel like the last thing you want to be dealing with right now.

You may have a job, a family, and you just want to complete the goals you set for yourself, but things aren't working the way you want them to. Maybe you’ve tried treatment in the past and it didn’t work out or maybe this is the first time you’re considering it. However you got here, I’m glad you made it.

It takes courage to recognize that you could use support getting to a place where you feel more balanced in your life-- like you can finally act on your intentions. And I’d be honored to lend you a hand and take this journey with you. I believe in creating a therapy space of trust, equity, and support to collaboratively work towards clients’ specific needs. My work focuses on exploring how your experiences with ADHD and interactions with your environment have impacted how you presently see yourself, to grow to a place of acceptance of your beautiful uniqueness.

While earning a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a master’s in Human Sexuality, I’ve gained knowledge in working with diverse populations including refugees and LGBTQIA+, in an array of clinical settings including community mental health, college counseling, substance use treatment, and psychiatric hospitals. I practice from a space of cultural humility and competence, whereby I acknowledge each client’s culturally dynamic experiences and the ways they may impact their daily lives. I can't wait to welcome you and get started on building that life you've been dreaming of.

Sloane Ferenchak, Psy.D., M.Ed

It is my honor to collaborate with clients as they access their strength and resilience to make and maintain meaningful change.

I feel both honored and privileged to partner with individuals and couples to build their understanding of their challenges, leverage their strengths, and create personalized strategies to make meaningful changes in their lives.

As a therapist with ADHD, I recognize that one of the most painful experiences that comes with ADHD is feeling “in your own way” and the sense of thwarted potential that comes along with it. I also know that ADHD doesn’t just impact attention, organization, and motivation; it can affect your entire life, from your performance at work to your home life and inner world. My goal is to foster a warm, accepting, and respectful environment where we celebrate the beauty of ADHD while exploring and addressing the practical, emotional, psychological, and relational impacts of being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world. I aim to help you gain insight into patterns of behavior that do not serve you and help you feel empowered to utilize more effective strategies to do the things that make you feel alive.

Before joining Rittenhouse Psychological Services, I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a Masters of Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University. While I specialize in working with individuals with ADHD, I have experience working with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship concerns, family conflict, women’s issues, LGBTQIA+ issues, substance abuse, grief, and life transitions in setting including substance abuse treatment, comprehensive healthcare, and college counseling. I utilize a client-centered, culturally-sensitive approach to the specific needs, worldview, and goals of my clients.

I look forward to hearing your story and helping you take steps towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life!

About

MATT HANLEY, PSY.D.

My passion is working with individuals, families, and groups with Adult ADHD, helping people understand their everyday struggles and make meaningful change in their lives.

By creating a warm and safe environment in which to explore and be curious, I team up with you to help you develop greater insight into your current difficulties and find strategies to address them. My main role as your therapist will be to help you identify patterns of behavior that no longer work for you while also assisting you with addressing the emotional concerns and psychological blindspots that may make you feel stuck and unable to change. In order to do this, I work to build a strong and trusting relationship with my clients so that your therapy can meet your individual needs and goals. Together we work towards helping you achieve a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment in your life.

I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from George Washington University. I have worked in a variety of settings, including outpatient clinics and university counseling centers, most recently completing a post-doctoral fellowship at Temple University’s Tuttleman Counseling Center. At Temple, I served a diverse population of college students. I specialize in working with young adults with ADHD and learning disabilities, mood disorders, substance use concerns, and LGBTQ+ populations. I use a client-centered and multiculturally-informed approach to my work with individuals and groups and I am always striving to balance the emotional and practical aspects of ADHD treatment. I also provide comprehensive diagnostic and psychological evaluations for ADHD and learning disabilities as well as work with local adoption agencies to evaluate prospective parents.

Mary Salotto, Psy.D.

I believe that therapy should be a partnership and strive to create a warm environment where trust can grow, and people can thrive.

I hope to help each of my clients identify what makes them their best selves and learn how to leverage those strengths. By finding ways to work with your brain instead of against it, we can create individualized strategies that are both practical and effective for you. As a person with ADHD myself, I also know that its effects often reach outside of productivity and organization into psychological and emotional wellbeing. I treat every client as a being in their entirety and aim to address all aspects of their lives that they feel have been impacted. No two people are just alike; we will find things that work for you and your unique brain, your busy life, and your personal goals.

Prior to joining Rittenhouse Psychological Services, I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Widener University. I have a range of experiences in clinical settings ranging from schools to substance use treatment and evaluation of severe mental illness. My significant experience with psychoeducational assessment has helped to shape my therapeutic style. I combine problem-solving and logical approaches with compassion and empathy in order to help each person construct an inner and outer life they love.
