Teenage years and young adulthood can be very difficult to navigate. You are trying to figure out who you are, what kind of friends you want, what to do about your family, and where you are going in life.Growing up in New Orleans as a black woman with a visual impairment, I have experienced the struggles of finding that exact taks. You want to move forward in peace and confidence. Therapy can be helpful in understanding and overcoming the obstacles that come up in everyday life. It is important to feel comfortable enough with your therapist to open up in order to heal and collaboratively find positive solutions to attain your goals

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.

Whatever brings you to therapy is valid and worthy of exploration. Perhaps you sometimes struggle to feel connected to your emotions or to your body. You're noticing patterns or recurring challenges in relationships that you want to better understand. You feel exhausted from performing aspects of your life and want to tap into your authenticity and explore your identity. You've experienced trauma and want to process it safely. You're impacted by institutionalized racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, fatphobia and are seeking empowerment and healing. You crave deeper more satisfying relationships with others and yourself.

Let's face it, life can be stressful. That stress can become even more pronounced as you navigate new transitions like becoming an adult, moving to a new city, starting a new job, or leaving a relationship. Often times we have the answer but just need help sorting things out. Sometimes family and friends can be too close to help you identify your challenges. Sometimes THEY are the challenge. Working and trying to manage day-to-day responsibilities is no simple task. This is why I a firm believer in therapy.

Untapped potential can prevent us from reaching our full potential. Do you have what it takes to succeed, but due to low self-confidence, lack of support, or mood issues can’t seem to achieve your maximum potential? Are you in a relationship that is not thriving due to communication snags? Is your child finding it difficult to perform in school due to distractibility, learning differences, or poor behavior choices? You want a skilled professional who comes highly recommended by physicians, therapists, and educators. You want individualized care. You want exceptional service. I can offer you these, and much more, with confidence.

New Orleans is a unique city with a nuanced population. this includes individuals with intersecting identities. Equity has always been important to me. Many of us are living life without the proper mental health resources and representation in the field. Our culture and experiences as trans people are not seen and validated in most mental health spaces and I wanted to provide an authentic space for people and color and those of us in the queer community. representation is important, it is an intrinsic part of who we are and it helps us to know that our stories are valid. I primarily work with youth and LGBTQ+ Adults.
