About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor(LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in Louisiana. I have worked in social services for over 25 years in various capacities--as a direct care worker in a group home for developmentally-disabled adults, as a staff worker at a homeless shelter for teens, as a licensed counselor in a crisis counseling program in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and as a Licensed Mental Health Professional (LMHP) working with children, teens, and adults who receive Medicaid. The clients I have helped have struggled with depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, Panic Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder.

I see counseling as a way to help someone express feelings and thoughts in a safe environment, possibly for the first time. My approach combines Rogerian, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Motivational Enhancement.

Counseling/therapy is a challenging endeavor and an adventure. I find those who stick with it come out more mature and more whole.

Mark has been a great help to me and a consistent strong and reliable therapist to discuss my issues. He’s a really great listener and not quick to judge (essential but not all that common among psychotherapists), very open and warm and humble (also not as common as it should be!).
I highly recommend Mark.

Mark is a great listener and is going above and beyond to figure out together with me how to support me best. And outside of the videocalls, is also taking the time to read and reply all my other written messages. Highly recommended.
