About

“Enter into children’s play and you’ll find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet.”- V.A. A lot of the time children are not capable of expressing the emotions they are experiencing. Unprocessed emotions can show up as, but not limited to challenging behaviors, attention issues, power struggles at home, child/parent conflict, interpersonal conflict, and defiance. My goal is to create a safe environment for my clients to process, understand any and all emotions. I do this by utilizing Play Therapy as a means for the child to express their emotions, and learn about their experiences by using toys instead of direct words
I would describe myself as a compassionate, empathetic counselor that is outgoing and engaging. I earned a Master’s Degree in Counselor Education through the CACREP accredited program at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I am currently provisionally licensed through the state of Louisiana.I am actively pursuing my Registered Play Therapist license.
I aim to have a flexible therapeutic approach to meet the needs of each child. Play Therapy is my primary concentration, but I also believe in using a strength based approach to help clients feel empowered through the process. I specialize in working with a variety of concerns such as anxiety/ depression, social challenges, and challenging behavior.
