"I don't know what's wrong with me, but I don't feel like myself." Many things can happen in our lives that cause us to feel, "off," or not like we used to be. We may think that we aren't enjoying life as much as we used to, we may find that we are too caught up in our own head to enjoy things we used to enjoy. If you are feeling sad, overwhelmed, anxious, worried, nervous, or having a hard time dealing with changes, therapy can help. Most of us want a life worth living: good relationships with ourselves and others, happiness, and motivation to do things that we want to do. If you're ready to make some changes and start feeling better, call me for a free ten minute consultation to see how I can help you get back on track to feeling better.

I strive to reduce the stigma in society that often appears when discussing mental health concerns and seeking services. Sometimes just asking for help is the hardest part. Each client deserves a collaborative, accepting environment to discuss goals, growth, empowerment, change, and overall satisfaction with their day-to-day lives. I welcome the opportunity to help others forge a fulfilling future.

Hi, Brave Soul! Regardless of what transitional season you are in, you can overcome it. You experienced many hardships, challenges, and arduous seasons in your life. However, you do not have to remain there. Life is meant to be lived. You deserve to live an amazing and thriving life. But you may ask, " Where do I even start? Can I do this? or How?" Yes, you can DO THIS! It starts with YOU taking the first step in accepting help. Last, you will learn "how to" alongside me. Recognizing there is no perfect time to start. You have to take the leap of faith and start NOW. Don't let your fear stop you. One action, one day at a time.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Baton Rouge?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
