About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Louisiana. I have worked with an array of populations, individuals, groups, settings, and athletic teams. I interned at both University Medical Center in New Orleans and the Thomas E. Chambers Counseling and Training Center. I graduated from University of Holy Cross with a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Being a counselor has given me the incredible opportunity to have conversations with so many unique people, essentially, counseling is just another conversation.

I specialize in working with athletes, coaches and individuals with anxiety or performance issues.

Before we really jump right into things, I first want to state that it takes an incredible amount of courage for a person to ask for help; so, I want to commend you for taking this step for yourself. If this is your first time utilizing therapy, especially on a platform like this, please note that I am here for you. Basically, during our session(s), I will reflect back information which you provide to me through in a summarizing form, I ask questions to clarify things, and I will attempt to provide avenues for which solutions may become visible. Also, this is your time, if anything is confusing please let me know.

Whenever you're ready, and if you think we would be a good fit, let's jump in.

Stephen is an absolutely amazing therapist. Like many people, the past two years have been extremely challenging for me, and I cannot overstate how helpful Stephen has been for my personal healing and growth. Stephen is always extremely flexible with appointments, always willing to go the extra mile, and always focuses on the client's concerns and goals. His ability to help me reframe the way I see things has been absolutely instrumental to my growth. Thanks for everything Stephen!

Stephen is always so amazing, he is so pleasant to talk to and he really listens and interprets and analyzes situations and helps you navigate them clearly. I always look forward to my sessions with him because they really help me process the previous week before starting a new week. It just really re-centers me in a way and rebalances me.
