About me

I am licensed in Louisiana with 17 years of professional work experience. I have been fortunate to achieve broad clinical and behavioral health experiences as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Approved Clinical Supervisor (LCSW-BACS). These experiences include psychotherapy, crisis management/intervention, clinical interviewing, psychological, academic and personality testing, evaluations, stress and anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, & anger management. Therapeutic approaches I commonly use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Psychodynamic therapy, to name a few. I am also a combat veteran, with over 24 years in Louisiana Army National Guard, serving as a Behavioral Health Officer. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seek a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
