Living in a world built for neurotypical brains can ​create a chaotic reality, but you don’t have to ​navigate alone!


Welcome to Journey Well Therapy and Task ​Bandit Coaching. We have programs to support ​you in learning how to live well with the brain you ​have.

LCSW | Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Devin Dierks is the owner and sole therapist. A licensed, clinical social worker provides ​assessment and diagnosis, support, and strategies for prevention of mental and ​emotional distress. Rather than focusing on inner pathologies, a social worker ​emphasizes strengths in both the person and their environment.

Neurodiversity Affirming

Devin practices with the belief that ADHD is a valuable expression of human ​neurodiversity. The ADHD neurotype is a collection of traits that everyone has, but are ​experienced at a high level of intensity. Poorly named, ADHD is not a disorder, but due to ​lack of understanding, tools, strategies, and support, it can be disabling.

ADHD-CCSP | Certified Clinical Services Provider

Devin is trained to provide ADHD support utilizing current research. She engages in ​training with “experts” such as Hallowell and Barkley, seeking knowledge from many ​sources and utilizing what can be applied without pathologizing ADHD.

Why should I consider working with a professional who is also part of the Neurodivergent Community?

In the mental health field, there exists a power dynamic between the provider and the patient. The provider is seen as the ​“expert” while the patient is seen as the one who must make changes in order to be “fixed”. In some cases, this dynamic leads ​to vulnerable people making care decisions because of perceived authority, rather than their own needs. Devin believes that ​you are the expert in what you need and how you would be best supported. As a clinically trained professional and someone ​who also lives with ADHD, Devin is able to support you utilizing both science and collective knowledge, the latter of which ​must not be undervalued. Your experience is so much more than an arbitrary list of “symptoms”.

Money Matters

You will be responsible for the full cost of your session(s) at the time of service.


If you would like to utilize your Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance policy for therapy, please be aware of your coverage and if you ​have a deductible to meet, a co-pay, etc. If you aren’t sure, call the member services line, which should be listed on the back of your ​card.


Many seeking services choose not to bill their health insurance because doing so would require them to be diagnosed with a mental ​disorder. To provide even partial coverage, insurance plans dictate how often we can meet, for how long, and what we are able to do in ​session. Additionally, if your plan is billed for appointments, the plan has access to details about your treatment and your diagnosis will ​be on your medical record. Paying privately provides the benefit of privacy as well as the opportunity to work with Devin without these ​constraints, ensuring that you receive the frequency and type of support that you need.


If you will pay privately, I can accept: HSA/FSA cards, credit/debit cards, check, Venmo, Paypal, or Cash App.

If you have a different insurance plan but would like to use out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with a Superbill, which is a special ​receipt that includes necessary information for potential reimbursement. You can ask your plan about your out-of-network benefits. ​You may have some, you may not have any. You will still be responsible for the cost of your session, but your insurance may reimburse ​you at a later time.

What About Meds?

Stimulant medication can be a helpful tool for those living with ADHD. ​Thousands of studies over many years demonstrate that these medications ​are safe to use. I do not prescribe medication; that role belongs to doctors, ​physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who work in the mental health ​field. If you are interested in trying medication as an additional support, I ​can help you find a provider. This is a personal choice that should be ​discussed collaboratively between you and your care network. Medication ​is not necessary in order to participate in my programs, nor is it required ​for living well with ADHD. You will not be pressured by me to try ​medication, but we can discuss the potential benefits if you have any ​questions.

Good Faith Estimate Disclosure

If you are uninsured and/or choosing to pay privately, you have the ​right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your ​mental health care will cost.

Under the law, providers need to provide patients an estimate of the ​total expected charges for psychotherapy.

You can ask your provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you ​schedule a service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith ​Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For ​questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith ​Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
