I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Louisiana and Texas with over 8 years of Social Work experience. My experience Includes working with individuals with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, parenting problems, career challenges, end stage renal disease, and ADHD.
My therapy style is eclectic. I like to combine cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, client centered, psychodynamic and logo therapy. This approach helps me to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to help you with your specific needs. I believe therapy is not a one size fits all approach to helping others. I believe wholeheartedly to meet you where you are and calibrate treatment and my approach with what works best to meet your treatment goals.
Starting therapy is a big step and I am glad you are ready for change. I look forward to working with you.
