Currently in private practice in both Louisiana and Rhode Island, I offer individual therapy and psychological assessment to adults. Whether you have a problem to solve, goals to achieve or need emotional support, therapy can offer a safe space for an individual to disclose information and receive supportive, non-judgmental feedback, while learning skills to improve yourself. I am best suited to help you with mood difficulties, such as depression; self-esteem and identity problems; stress and anxiety; substance abuse problems; employment struggles; and relationship problems.

I believe counseling is a holistic, healing and empowering process. There are many times throughout our lives when we get stuck in transitions, feelings, or in our own mind. Counseling helps us get comfortable within ourselves. It creates self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-compassion which in turn changes our perspective as we walk through our daily life.

Starting therapy can be scary. Sharing painful feelings and experiences with a stranger is pretty intimidating! My first job as a therapist is to provide a safe, supportive environment that leads to a trusting, respectful counselor-client relationship. That relationship goes both ways - I do my best to earn my clients' trust, and I deeply respect my courageous clients. When you take that first step toward healing through therapy, I absolutely believe you will be glad you did.

I believe that psychotherapy can be helpful to create growth, improve relationships, improve coping skills and understand maladaptive patterns in one's life. Often people come to me because they've reached a crisis point or just feel stuck in a situation that they feel they cannot change. Therapy creates a safe place for one to recognize and explore issues and to develop new solutions and strategies. I've worked with a wide variety of issues and mental health diagnoses and have experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

The past several years have been so difficult. It is important to recognize now more than ever that we possess the innate ability for inner peace and calm even in the face of fearing the unknown. Psychotherapy is an exploration of what is blocking people from fully realizing their fullest potential, genuine happiness and fulfillment. Anxiety, depression and other "mental health issues" are often rooted in a deeper desire to be understood, to be seen, and to accomplish one's life purpose. A strong psychotherapeutic alliance can help to unlock our natural abilities that are hidden beneath our fears and limiting beliefs.

Counseling takes an effort on behalf of the client and the therapist. This proactive approach involves establishing a productive relationship that includes trust, mutual respect, responsibility, and team work. As part of this process, present problems are explored and methods of coping are developed for an improved life.

I believe we can benefit tremendously from being encouraged to express ourselves, understand our emotions and behaviors, and develop viable ways to cope and thrive in our environment. Together we will explore who you are, not just through your past experiences but mostly through your present emotions/behaviors and future goals. I approach each therapy session with genuineness, openness and empathy. In my practice, counseling can include humor; both laughter and tears are important parts of healing and growing. While I certainly respect that serious matters are discussed in therapy, we can usually find ways to enjoy our progress!

Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed or disconnected? Some days feel more impossible than others when you consider everything on your list. You constantly battle the voice in your head that says you're never good enough. You're exhausted, yet you still put on a good face and put everyone and everything before yourself. Maybe it's the relationship, work, motherhood, or family but you often feel unseen, hopeless, insecure and unsatisfied in life. You worry that if you attempt a change you’ll for sure lose the little bit of love connection and sanity you have left. You feel out of control and need a sense of agency. I see you.

However, there are times, or seasons, in our lives where problems are compounded for various reasons.

Bolting upright in bed, your heart hammering against your sweat-soaked nightshirt, a nightmare just rattled you from sleep for the third night in a row. How much longer will that day haunt you? The chilling memories play over and over in your head. Exhausted and unable to focus, you can't get anything done at work or home. You're terrified you'll lose everything if things don't change. Places and people that spark any semblance of the event have become off-limits for you. Every day you grapple with hopelessness and loneliness. You're still in disbelief that this happened to you. There's little hope and no clear path forward.

How can I find a therapist in New Orleans?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
