LA 70816 Telephone Number: 225-295-8444 (phone) 225-295-8448 (fax). A scholar in the Doctor of Philosophy in Counselor Education and Supervision at Walden University.

I see counseling as a process in which you, the client, and I, the counselor, have come to understand and trust one another. We will work as a team to explore and define present problems, and situations, develop future goals for improved life and work systematically toward realizing those goals.

I have a general and Telehealth practice but focus on clients with individual and family issues. I hold national certification as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and National Certified School Counselor (NCSC) # 245996. I hold appraisal privilege and Supervision designation with the Louisiana LPC Board.

As an LPC-S, I am required by state law to adhere to the Code of Conduct for practice that my licensing Board has adopted. A copy of this Code of conduct is available upon request.

I approach counseling from a humanistic perspective that infuses positivity, reflection, and encouragement. I work with a variety of clients including individuals, couples, and families. I also conduct group therapy. I see clients of all ages and backgrounds. I do not work independently with children under six years of age.

I really enjoyed working with Debbie. She helped my son manage anxiety and anger, and she helped me to interact and parent my son. She is a good listener, and when I felt stuck or not sure what I wanted to say, she jumps in with great lead questions. She is friendly and fun, and I would highly recommend her. I miss talking to her!!

I have only had a few sessions with Debbie and so far I am extremely pleased. She respectful, caring, undertstanding and listening to everything I say and has given helpful advice on ways to cope. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing services.

Debbie has been my therapist for six months now and has done so much for me in such little time. This past year I have had a lot of things change in my life, which I don't take well. But with Debbie as my therapist, I was able to grow from everything changing in my life. After meeting with her weekly I truly feel like a changed person. I have learned so many healthy coping mechanisms and have learned why I am the way I am, which has helped me grow and heal a lot of trauma. On top of her being a great therapist, she is also just a great person in general. She makes sure to get to know you and remember the little things, she also makes you extremely comfortable talking with her about anything. I would recommend her to literally anyone.

Debbie is very professional and has helped me work through some issues in my day to day life. We worked on communication and controlling emotions. Along with being very helpful, she is understanding and her voice is so peaceful. Thank you, Mrs. Debbie!!!!!

Debbie has been so helpful as I navigate a challenging new time in my life. She has the experience and insight to support me in the ways that I need and is always available between live sessions to check in. I have been so impressed with my experience so far and would recommend her to any of my friends or family looking for a therapist.
