I work with adolescents and adults struggling with complex trauma, depression, anxiety, LGBTQIA + identity, relationships, self-esteem and life transitions.
Are you wanting to change your life, but don't know where to start? Are you grieving a traumatic childhood or experience? Do you have difficulties with anxiety, self-worth, and relationships? Do you find it difficult to move on and find yourself? Are you seeking meaningful work to find new perspectives and engagement in life? Trauma is an epidemic impacting our families, communities, our bodies, and our minds; trauma work is my specialty. If you are seeking relief from unhealthy coping mechanisms, or if any of these questions resonated with you, we may be a great fit for the collaborative journey towards wellness together.

I have many years of experience working with folks with a history of trauma and substance abuse issues. I believe that these two things often go hand in hand - people using substances to help deal with the painful feelings associated with trauma. Most recently I have focused on working with the LGBTQ communities to address issues related to societal and familial rejection, isolation, bullying and low self worth. I have found that providing queer affirming therapy in a nonjudgmental environment can be very healing to clients.

You're tired of pretending to be someone that you're not. To stay closeted, to protect your family, to avoid the weird questions about your sex life... Because you were taught that it's not okay to be lesbian , gay , bi-sexual, transgender , or queer . It feels like there is no place in this world for you. How could they accept you now? Religion depicts you as inferior or sinful. People in the family and at work say horrible things about LGBTQ people, and sometimes you feel ashamed, isolated, or guilty. Confusion and anxiety are dominating your life, but really- you just want to be accepted for who you are.

I work from an anti-racist, anti-colonial, sex-positive, pro-disability justice, kink positive, fat positive, LGBTQ friendly, polyam-friendly, and strengths-based perspective.
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.

I have experience working with LGBTQ + clients, as well as clients off different cultural, racial, ethnic, and spiritual, and economic backgrounds.
Everyone deserves a judgement-free space to express themselves and be heard. My therapeutic style is empowering, participatory, person-centered, and trauma informed. I listen and ask thoughtful questions to encourage emotional awareness and help illuminate my client's goals, encouraging them to work at their own pace. I work from an anti-oppression lens, aware of the larger societal factors that contribute so much to stress, anxiety, and depression. If you are seeking an approachable therapist to work with that values your life experience, I may be a good fit.

I am LGBTQIA + friendly and have worked with clients with diverse racial, gender and sexual identities.
People entering therapy are often overwhelmed with distressing thoughts and emotions. Others may feel stuck repeating destructive behaviors or chasing dissatisfying relationships. Many clients are oppressed by internalized criticisms from which they are unable to free themselves.

My area of focus is on clients with a history of sexual trauma, the LGBT + population, the sex worker community, and people in open or poly relationships.
Finding a therapist in an increasingly virtual world can feel like a dating site at times; scrolling through profiles, making quick judgements about individuals based on their picture and a small bio. I would be honored to talk with you and see if we would be a good match in your process of healing. I have worked with a wide array of individuals from all different backgrounds and stages of healing. I meet clients where they are and empower them to work through their trauma. I truly believe everyone is capable of healing, and therapy can be that transformative process.

I am strongly connected with non-traditional families and lifestyles and work to cultivate a safe place for all people, most frequently working with clients in queer , non-monogamous, & kink communities.
***No In-Person Sessions*** It is my view that relationship, with both self and others, is the most powerful tool we have in life as a vehicle for reflection, healing, and transformation. I was trained in transpersonal counseling and mindfulness, and have a very interactive style that respects the unique mind, body, and spirit of each individual client and partners in relationship.

LGBTQ + clients are welcome! It can be a difficult decision to begin therapy, but once you have made the decision; you have begun the process of change. Although therapy is an investment of time, energy and resources, the rewards can be great.
