In The Works

My next book will be a “CBT Workbook for Adult ADHD and Anxiety” with New Harbinger. If all goes at planned, it should be released in early 2024.

There is a manuscript I’m working on with some colleagues about examining strengths in adult ADHD, though it has been moving at a glacial pace.

There is another collaboration that might yield something interesting – but that is all I’ll say for now.

I’m slated to be a guest on a slew of podcasts in the first few months of 2023 that I’ll post when recordings are finished and released. I’m hoping to present at a couple more in-person conferences this year.

I’ve had an in-congress workshop on CBT for adult ADHD accepted for the World Congress on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in Seoul, South Korea in June 2023.

My last professional event of my University of Pennsylvania affiliation will be a workshop at the annual convention of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association in State College, PA on Saturday, June 24.


I was invited to do a session on Social Capital and Relationships for Adults with ADHD for the Bux-Mont (PA) CHADD group on March 21, 2023, which generated a very insightful Q&A session.

I presented a half-day webinar workshop on CBT for adult ADHD to Bespoke Mental Health in the UK on March 9, 2023.

I was a presenter as part of the Weekend University’s Day on Neurodiversity online program on Sunday, August 28, 2022.

I conducted a webinar on “social capital” and its role in relationships for adults with ADHD. It was hosted by the Attention Deficit Disorder Association and aired on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, though it is probably available on the ADDA website.

I presented a 5-session remote training on cognitive-behavioral therapy to a group from Alliance Counseling in Singapore in November 2021.

I presented a remote continuing education workshop on cognitive-behavior therapy for adult ADHD through Psych Consulting to an Australian audience of mental health professional on September 3, 2021 (their time, September 2 local time when I present it). It was well-received and there were a number of great questions – I just wish it could have been live and in-person.

I presented a session on ADHD for the PENN Dental Program on September 15 on ADHD management and its relevance for oral and dental health.

I recorded two sessions as the invited speaker for a virtual conference by the ADHD Association of Denmark in Kolding on April 22, 2021. The sessions were recorded in advance due to the time difference, though I was streamed live for a lively Q&A session later in the day (but still quite early here).

I was the 2021 invited speaker for the John B. Rosenberg ’63 and Stephanie Lambert Speaker Series in Psychology at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, which was held on April 8, 2021 (after a one-year delay due to COVID). See the presentation in the Media section of the website. Flyer for original event: SpeakerSeries_Psychology_2020_Final →


Clinical Practice

I maintain a full caseload of adult clients I see for diagnostic evaluations and individual cognitive-behavior therapy or CBT, primarily through the PENN Adult ADHD Treatment and Research Program, but also through my ongoing affiliation with the Center for Cognitive Therapy at PENN.

As of July 1, 2023, I will be leaving PENN to start my own solo, independent, virtual psychology practice. See the “Solo Practice” tab for more details.


I am a clinical supervisor for 3rd and/or 4th year psychiatry residents in the Perelman School of Medicine who are receiving supervised training in conducting cognitive-behavioral therapy for mood and anxiety disorders through the Center for Cognitive Therapy.

In 2013, I established and continue direct a year-long supervised training in the diagnostic assessment and psychosocial treatment (using CBT) of adult ADHD. I train and supervise two advanced doctoral students in clinical psychology and we have a stellar record of our trainees gaining admission to APA-accredited predoctoral internships.

Most of our doctoral clinicians use our program’s archival data for their doctoral dissertation projects. I have been a committee member for the vast majority of these dissertations, several of which have resulted in conference papers and publications in peer-review journals.

Some clinicians have reached out about some sort of ongoing training or supervision groups or other such opportunities for training in the assessment and/or psychosocial treatment of adult ADHD in my solo practice. This is still under consideration.
