I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in Louisiana. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, self-harm or self-mutilation, OCD, ADHD, gender identity, and the LGBTQ community. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines Cognitive-behavioral Therapy, Rational-emotive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Person-centered. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. My purpose is to be a helper and guide for others. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
