Welcome! My name is Ryan, I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and School Social Worker who has spent nearly 20 years working with kids and young adults. I’m also the father to a son and an overly friendly dog with dreadlocks.
I discovered my professional passion when I was looking for resources to help my son who has his share of challenges. Living in the Philadelphia area at the time I could not find any resources that were designed for kids with his profile so I took learning into my own hands.
My specialization in working with males happened organically. Many of the Moms who reach out to me share that they have been through multiple psychologists, counselors, etc. only to find that they do not truly address ADHD-related issues or their son’s don’t want to go to therapy because they are asked to talk about their feelings week after week or can’t relate to the therapist.
Other savvy Moms were looking to help their son’s improve their social skills and understood that in order to be relatable to similar-age boys their sons should learn how to connect with their peers from a male perspective. This male approach to teaching social skills to boys drew families from all over the area. To my knowledge, I am the only person in the country who specializes in teaching social thinking skills from a male perspective.
While I specialize in ADHD, anxiety with ADHD and learning disabilities I also work with guys who have no formal diagnosis but may struggle with challenging behaviors, low self-confidence, social anxiety, sibling rivalry, or low frustration tolerance. Parents are always involved in learning with their children.
Summer Trip Camp opened in 2017 as the first summer camp in the country designed for boys with ADHD or learning differences who need to improve their executive functioning, social skills and age-expected independence
I look forward to connecting with you.
