Are you tired? Do you feel like life throws you one obstacle after another? Are you so overwhelmed that you sometimes feel paralyzed by stress or anxiety? If so, you're not alone. As a Black woman and New Orleans native, I understand what it means to embody resilience while weary of being known for that characteristic. But as a counselor, I understand how important emotional well-being, healthy relationships, and internal motivation are for sustaining difficult times. Therapy is a wonderful tool that can help you achieve stability and wellness. Don't let fear, worry, depression or shame keep holding you back from the life you want.

I believe that the counseling process is a journey between the therapist and client where we collectively develop a treatment plan to address areas of concern. Although each person may enter therapy for different reasons, my intent is to identify and work toward goals of the client becoming a happy, healthier and well adjusted being.

Recent events have had a major impact on us all. Social isolation, increased tensions, and financial difficulty, everyone seems to be struggling in some way. Alcohol, drugs, and pornography often seem like a good way to escape. Unfortunately, this can result in anxiety, depression, or loss of relationships. Addiction of any kind is a complex disease and NOT a a sign of failure. I offer a confidential and supportive space to talk with no judgement. I want you to discover what works for you and your journey! I want you to leave our sessions with practical tools that you can apply to everyday life.

Life is hectic, and at times, it can be downright brutal! However, our culture rewards those who "push through" regardless of their circumstances. Before long, you're five miles to empty. You have no energy, you're not sleeping well, you're irritable, depressed, anxious, and at times emotionally detached from everything and everyone. My ideal client is someone who is looking to slow down and drown out the noises stifling their inner voice. Mourning loss, cultivating self-acceptance, creating useful internal dialogue, and establishing boundaries are possible when we choose to stop running on fumes and allow ourselves to be still.

Are you currently finding it difficult exploring your emotions? Anger? Fear? Shame? Sadness? Sometimes, does it seem that wondering about these emotions causes some anxiety and stress? Do you feel family, friends, and others don't understand? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you likely can benefit from addressing those thoughts through therapy where there is Confidentiality, Support, and No Judgement.

Do you have a history of feeling guilt or shame when unable to meet the expectations of others? Always believing that you “should” do more? Maybe you have done so much for everyone else, that you begin to lose sight of your own emotional needs. Compassion fatigue in both personal and professional relationships can lead to exhaustion, anger and sadness.
