Hi! I am a professional counselor licensed in Louisiana and Georgia with over 10 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, anger issues, mood instability, and daily/life stress. I also helped many people who have experienced various types trauma and/or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is welcoming and engaging. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't presume to know it all and I like my clients to understand I am human just as they are and I am here solely to assist them in their own journey to a more optimistic mental state. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, holistic, and solution-focused therapy. 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 that change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you to be the best you without judgment and insecurities. Remember your counseling journey is your own. It is about YOU!
I look forward to being apart of the light that leads you to the healthier you!
