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.
I view counseling as a collaborative approach in which we work together as a team to achieve the goals you set. I use a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy informed 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 love working with clients and get excited when I see positive changes they have made. I have experience with adults and adolescents who are struggling with symptoms of stress, depression, grief, and relationships struggles. I specialize in working with clients who struggle with ANXIETY and clients who identify as LGBTQA. 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. I hold the following licenses and certifications:
Intake (50min) - $150
Follow Up (50min) - $125
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.
Out of pocket cost is dependent on your policy.
Some of the insurance companies I accept:
Blue Cross PPO & HMO *Cigna *Tricare * United Health Care * Verity National Group * Value Options/Beacon
If you have another insurance carrier and your policy includes out-of-network benefits, you may be able to seek a reimbursement from your insurance company.
We can assist you in this process.
