The ADHD Center for Success was founded in 2009 by Dr. Lori Rappaport and Dr. Lewis Ribner, licensed clinical psychologists who between them had over 50 years of experience helping, children, adolescents, adults and families overcome difficult challenges in their lives. Drs. Rappaport and Ribner combined their expertise to create the ADHD Center for Success as a way to provide expanded services to better meet the needs of individuals and families who are challenged with attention disorders. They co-directed the center until Dr. Ribner’s retirement in 2018.

As Director of the ADHD Center for Success, Dr. Rappaport has worked with hundreds of individuals and families affected by attention disorders and related emotional and behavioral issues. In addition to offering longstanding psychological services in the community, she provides presentations for professionals and non-professionals, has taught at the Graduate level, supervised training of other professionals, provided services in several Children’s Hospitals throughout the country and has taught numerous parenting workshops which have helped many parents develop effective parenting skills. Dr. Rappaport works closely with physicians and schools in the San Diego area to provide education, assessment and treatment of attention related problems. Her close collaboration with other professionals allows her to provide individualized and comprehensive services, which lead to positive changes in people’s lives.

Dr. Rappaport maintains a private psychotherapy practice in addition to directing the ADHD Center for Success.
