Licensed Professional Counselor
"Therapy is a process where the client and myself develop a trusting partnership. My hope is to create opportunities together where you are able to further recognize your own resilience. Everyone goes through life experiencing trials and hardships, but that does not mean your experiences and feelings are not validated."
Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Criminal Justice; University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2008

Professional Internship with Family Services of Greater New Orleans in Community Mental Health
I am a Louisiana native who holds the title of Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), and am Telehealth credentialed. I have work experience in Community-Based, Outpatient, Intensive Outpatient, and virtual settings (voluntary and mandated referrals). Treated populations include children through elderly, in both group and individual therapy, who have struggled from varying diagnoses and other conditions that may be a focus of clinical attention.
*Right now, I am currently seeing clients via telehealth.
I work with individuals, adolescents and adults that are experiencing anxiety, depression, mood disturbances, anger issues, stress, peer and family conflict, and life transitions--just to name a few!
I am also an LGBTQ+ allied counselor and welcome anyone who is part of the community!
Clientele: Adolescents, Young adults, Adults, Couples
One of my most important beginning goals as a counselor is to make sure you are getting what you need out of our sessions and that you have found the right counselor for you.
Throughout my experience, I have practiced many interventions from Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and multiple Evidenced Based Practices (EBP). My specialties as a culturally sensitive therapist include depression, anxiety, and interpersonal conflict. I also have experience with Mindfulness-Based practices (MBCT) and Compassion Focused therapy.
A common thread holds steady in my practice; an unwavering desire to encourage and support. Therapy is a process where the client and myself develop a trusting partnership. My hope is to create opportunities together where you are able to further recognize your own resilience. I fully believe in the power of insight and how it directly inspires us to carve a healthy path in life.
