Louisiana is known for its Mardi Gras celebration and for its jazz. Your mental health can be like a jazz band. Sometimes, it’s fast-past and is always changing. Other times, its slower and more somber. 

A counselor can be a part of your jazz band and making sure that your tune is as strong as they come.

Change is not only possible, it is a law of nature. However, we also must not change just for the sake of change either, but rather deal with what we are facing head on and learn how to live with the pain that those things we cannot change often brings. You are currently in some kind of pain, and instead of succumbing to that pain, let me assist you in working through that pain and transferring that pain into passion, purpose and productivity. This life is yours and nobody else's, and you can learn to live the life you have imagined without fear. Are you ready for...
