About Me

Hello, I’m Esau. I am a licensed professional counselor-supervisor in the state of Louisiana. I earned a Master of Arts Degree in mental health counseling from Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA. I am certified by the Louisiana State Board of Licensed Professional Counselors. I have over 10 yrs of experience providing counseling and psychotherapy services to adolescents and adults. I see the counseling relationship with you as a process of understanding and trust. We work together to develop your goals, to better manage your daily activities and routines.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety and stress, anger management, self-esteem and confidence issues, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, physical trauma, emotional abuse and family relationship problems. I approach counseling from several therapeutic perspectives which include short-term and long-term counseling plans for you. I will help you to realize that you have the ability to bring about the positive change(s) that you desire.

I approach counseling from several therapeutic perspectives. They include cognitive behavior therapy, person-centered therapy, reality therapy, solution focused therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. If you choose to work with me, you will learn how to take corrective measures that will enable you to have better relationships, increased happiness, and have a sense of inner control of your life.

I feel very lucky that I was matched with Esau! He offers the perfect blend of deep listening and giving great feedback. He’s thoughtful in his approach and his comments are incredibly mindful yet genuinely honest. In a world that can sometimes feel against you, it’s nice to know once a week for 45min there’s a person who genuinely cares about your best interest. I’m looking forward to continuing working with him.

I'm glad my sister recommended BetterHelp to me and I was able to meet my new therapist Esau. This is my first time having a male therapist and I must say Im glad to have Esau as my therapist. He's very realistic and honest with his guidance and it is something that i need to cope with my issues.
