For personal and professional reasons my clinical practice is currently closed for the foreseeable future. I will continue to be accessible by telephone for those wishing to contact me. In the past, I have asked people to spend a few minutes writing down what they wish to accomplish prior to engaging in an activity. Two or three goal statements are sufficient. Experience and research have shown that this method is most effective when the goals are specific and measurable. It is my hope that this will provide a clear sense of direction.

I specialize in working with people who have experienced trauma, whether that trauma is a one-time event, or built up over time. My clients are brave enough to share their experiences with me, and in turn, I create a safe space for them to share in. We work together to understand and process what has happened in the past, what coping skills they have implemented to help them survive until now, and what we can do to best grow and move forward. My clients are the experts in their healing journey, but I will never leave them without the tools necessary to navigate that process.

I am dedicated to helping my clients heal from trauma, grow in self-awareness, and find and establish their identity and value. My husband and I walked through infidelity in our relationship and I compassionately understand the devastation betrayal has on a partner, a relationship, and a family. I understand the difficult questioning that occurs after a betrayal and the excruciating work it takes to become healthy and maintain wholeness. Asking for help is often difficult, however my client-centered approach creates a safe, non-judgmental space for you to process and begin healing.

It is my hope that I and each person I work with intentionally strive toward living a more emotionally healthy life. You might be seeking better relationships with others or wish to feel better about yourself. Symptoms of anxiety or depression may affect you and your ability to "show up" for those you care about. The impact of trauma may be "taking you out" of your ability to focus and remain present to yourself and others. You may have mild to chronic symptoms that have previously been diagnosed or instead may just feel confusing or unwanted. We can explore these and develop a plan to help you build and live a meaningful life.

You need answers, reasons for why this is so difficult, and you know this is something you cannot do alone. Through individualized, evidence-based assessment and treatment, we will create a plan for positive change that works for your family. If teachers, pediatricians, or other service providers are an essential component, I will do my best to establish a collaboration so we can find answers to your questions.

When was the last time you smiled, laughed, lived without fear or felt confident and beautiful? Have you remained at the starting line because of fear and distractions? Many are in a constant state of comparison to others and those insecurities prevent the process of moving forward. If you are single, widowed, separated, divorced and feel depressed, give yourself permission to gain clarity and healing. Allow yourself to live the life you are destined to live! Failing marriages, fear of loving someone again and living with the loss of a loved one are experiences that no one should navigate alone.

Counseling provides the opportunity to step out of the routine of everyday life to focus on the bigger picture and long-term growth. I am both humbled and inspired by the opportunity to walk with people through their most challenging life situations. I believe a healthy counseling relationship is built on unconditional trust and respect. It involves authenticity and an ongoing journey of humility and self-improvement for counselor and client. I utilize a wholistic approach to counseling, believing counseling should address emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs.

What type of Baton Rouge mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Baton Rouge?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
