About Me

Work with Me!

Hello and welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Louisiana. My vast clinical experiences include depression, anxiety, grief, child loss, abandonment, relationship issues and challenges associated with life transitions. I have over 20 years of clinical experience in a variety of settings including mental health clinics and hospitals. I strive to meet clients "where they are" and help guide them to where they want to be. I strive to provide a warm, caring and non-judgmental approach with all my clients. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor whereby the therapist and client work together to address concerns and find effective solutions to problems. I hope that when we talk, you feel safe, supported and empowered to make lasting changes. I look forward to working with you! I earned a Masters of Social Work (MSW) from Tulane University. I also hold a Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.

I have training in the following areas:
Abandonment Issues
Cognitive Behavioral therapy
Dialectical Behavior therapy
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
