Taking the step towards exploring yourself is powerful, purposeful, and courageous. Through authentic connection and openness, I believe change, growth, and healing can occur. My goal is to provide a safe, therapeutic environment for you to delve into and process difficult life events, changes, and choices. Together, we identify areas that are impacting your thinking, behavior, and relationships, seek out and examine their origin, find meaning, and work towards achieving and practicing new, healthier ways of relating and understanding.

Together, we will work on transitioning into a space of emotional health and wellness. I find that clients already have the tools to achieve their goals and resolve their problems. With some assistance, these tools can be honed into coping skills used in inner work. I aim to help clients see that their problems don't have to consume their lives, and that sometimes our struggles can motivate us to seek better life outcomes. We will work to acknowledge your struggles and reframe them as newfound awareness and growth opportunities.

I empower individuals and couples to change their perceptions about issues that are unhealthy and assist them in facilitating positive change. I approach therapy with clients from a wellness model (having issues they need assistance managing) as opposed to a medical model (being broken and needing to be fixed). My favorite quote is from Alfred Adler in 1927, "The hardest thing for human beings to do is to know themselves and to change themselves." I enjoy helping clients gain insight that can be helpful to facilitate change in perceptions and ultimately in their lives. I have evenings and weekend availability.

"Problem talk creates problems, Solution talk creates solutions"- Steve de Shazer. Sounds simple enough...right? Sometimes it's anything but simple. That's because, when your problems seem insurmountable, finding a solution can feel almost impossible. Even when you know you are stuck, you find extreme difficulty letting go of the habits and communication styles that keep you stuck. Counseling can help. Using a variety of theories and techniques, my goal is to assist you in discovering solutions to your problems and in finding the potential in yourself and your relationships.

I believe that anyone can benefit from therapy. We all sometimes need help adjusting to changes in our lives and knowing how to best take care of ourselves. When we’re in the day-to-day it's easy to get lost in our habits and struggle with making changes or reflecting on if what we’re doing is really helping/healthy. I’m here to support you and give you a safe space to explore your choices. Therapy should be a space where you can talk and gain insight into what’s going on in your life and how you want to proceed.

Many of my clients are successful and thriving in ways that people may see on the outside, but their inner experiences of themselves and how they are in relation to the world and the people in their lives are often one of disconnection and dissatisfaction. Many of these feelings come from a variety of sources such as: anxiety, depression, a disordered relationship with food or one's body, and an estranged experience with oneself. People who want to develop a sense of self-awareness and understanding often find working with me beneficial.

Do you want a change & aren’t sure how to get there? Maybe you’re not sure exactly what you want or need, are at a crossroads, or are longing to move forward from something painful? It's never too late to create a life you’re excited about, no matter what has happened or what you're struggling with today. And you don't have to do it alone. Though I can never go through exactly what you have, I have a lot of experience facing my own & others' depression, addiction, grief, anger, and anxiety. I learned the hard way that it's so worth it to listen to yourself when something feels "off," and it's 100% possible for things to get better.

My ideal clients are those who are seeking to be the best versions of themselves. They are looking for an empowering and inspiring partner to begin their transformative journey. Each client brings their own unique experiences, gifts, issues, strengths, and goals to treatment. Clients often come to me feeling "stuck" or "stagnated, others may be grappling with career, relationship or health issues, while some are seeking a "shift" or a re-direction. No matter what their journey, I am supportive and nurturing without enabling and we will act together as a team.

I have worked at a number of different nonprofits around New Orleans in the past seven years including Crescentcare, Family Services of GNO and Silence Is Violence, my work at these nonprofits has influenced my approach to counseling and my client-therapist relationships. Working from a trauma-informed lens, I work to facilitate a collaborative and empowering approach to counseling. My theoretical approach stems from a radical social justice paradigm with the incorporation of liberation-based healing practices, expressive arts therapy, feminist, and relational-cultural theory. I work with both adults (18+ yrs old) and couples.
