My Expert Service

Concerned about medication and want accurate information about alternative treatments? I have developed an integrative approach as a way to help children, adolescents, adults, and parents cope with “ADHD" or "ADD". Particular emphasis is placed on dealing with the real-world reality where the family and parents express concerns about traditional interventions, but have difficulty investing the resources necessary for alternative approaches. The integrative approach allows for the practitioner and the client to incorporate the most effective components of traditional and complementary methods. Dr. Richman offers a two-track framework for working with ADHD, that incorporates the notion of rebalancing the person on all levels, and the importance of offering comprehensive assessment and treatment.
