About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor In Louisiana with over 10 year experience working as a Mental Health Counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions, and symptoms of bipolar, borderline personality disorder and schizophrenia. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. My approach is solution focused, client centered, and strengths based drawing heavily from cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy skills. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I am also an Enneagram Coach.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She is kind. She really listens and shows empathy and interest. As well as gives alternatives or ways to problem solve. I love the worksheets with tips. Writing or putting things down on text it so helpful. She is always prepared and I feel tht she really cares and enjoys her job. I look
Forward to our talks.
