I am excited that you have taken time to learn more about me and what I do. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been in private practice for 8 years. I grew up in Baton Rouge and have lived in Ascension Parish for the past 13 years. I have 2 daughters who attended school in the parish. My oldest is a recent LSU graduate and my youngest is still enrolled. (Geaux Tigers!). My dream was to open an office in Ascension Parish and work with the people of my community.
I view counseling as a collaborative approach in which together, as patient and therapist, we work as a team to explore and define the present problem, develop future goals, and work in a systematic fashion towards reaching these goals. I use a variety of approaches including principles from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Play Therapy. Each client has different needs and my approach is customized to your individual experiences and needs.
I work with a wide variety of clients including individuals, teenagers (ages 12 and up), and families. I sometimes work with couples on parenting issues, but I DO NOT provide marriage or couples counseling.
I love my job and get excited when I see positive changes in my clients. I have worked with adults and adolescents who are struggling with symptoms of stress, depression, grief, and relationships struggles. I have given them the tools and insight they needed to heal from the past and move forward in their lives. I specialize in working with clients of all ages who struggle with ANXIETY and clients who are LBGTQ. I have anxiety myself and have learned how to cope with it in healthy ways. I want to share my knowledge with my clients so that they too can learn to manage their anxiety.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology, and a Master of Education degree in Counselor Education both from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. I hold the following licenses and certifications:
Hello! I hold a Masters of Science (M.S.) degree in Counseling from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond LA. I am a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
I am a general PLPC I have some additional training, experience and/or knowledge in the following areas:

· LGBTQ clients and allies/future allies
I have presented at the Terrel Conference 2020, Holy Cross Ethic’s Conference 2020, and LCA 2020 on supervision.
I work with young adult, adult and older adult clients (18+). I do not currently accept any insurance. Currently I am online only due to COVID-19.
My approach to therapy is to begin with forming a trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients while working towards the client’s goals for him/her/their self. No matter what you bring to my (virtual) office, you can expect to be met with non-judgement, compassion, and authenticity.
I am also working on completing Certified Clinical Trauma Professional I and II (CCTP I & CCTP II). This bio will be updated again once I complete them.
