As a Registered Play Therapist, I help children deal with a variety of concerns including anxiety, social skills, behavioral issues (home and school) and low self-esteem.
CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. As a therapist, it is my belief that everyone deserves to have a safe empathic, non- judgmental environment to which they can begin to better understand themselves and others. Therapy provides the opportunity for growth and change and eventually, a better understanding of one's self. This process is a collaboration to discover the desired lifestyle and happiness we all want. I offer a non judgmental warm supportive environment to help my clients process and express themselves.

I utilize Play Therapy with children because Play therapy is to children what counseling is to adults.
I would describe myself as an intuitive, and nurturing therapist. I provide non-judgmental counseling filled with unconditional positive regard, and I focus on my clients' overall personal growth and wellness, not just the identified problem. I believe in incorporating the healing power of play and laughter into counseling regardless of client age. I also concentrate on helping my clients to acknowledge their daily progress and to challenge their beliefs about their need for perfection. I am a dedicated therapist and I believe that all of my clients and their needs are unique and worthy of respect and individualized treatment.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in New Orleans. I strongly believe that a developmental perspective is important when working with clients in therapy. A young child practicing social skills and working to connect with peers, a child entering adolescence and exploring his identity, or a parent with a new baby all represent life transitions that are part of the normal developmental landscape.

Whether you're struggling with relationship issues, anxiety or depressive symptoms, or your child is exhibiting worrisome behaviors, there are many ways help you or your loved ones .
Are you currently going through struggles in life or hitting some obstacles? Well it's normal and it happens to all of us from childhood through adulthood. The important question is, how are you coping? Sometimes without being aware of it, we develop destructive coping mechanisms by masking or shoving things down. As a therapist of 24 years, I can help guide you, your child , teen or family in learning new, healthier tools to live a more functional, enhanced and fulfilling life. And improve relationships too! If you are looking for effective help and support through a troubling situation, allow yourself to reach out.

Come in for an initial parent session and I’ll conduct a thorough interview of your child ’s history.
I specialize in play therapy and working with families through big changes and big feelings. You've been through big life changes recently, too, and you're not feeling your best. You are having difficulty coping yourself, and you don't know how to talk to your kid(s) about their feelings. You just want your kids to be ok, but you’re not sure what is the best way to address the problem.

If your child has behavioral problems, I can help. A native of Lafayette, La., I joined the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of New Orleans directly following my clinical internship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where I trained in child and family therapy at the world-renowned Kennedy Krieger Institute. I completed my doctoral work at LSU, where I studied resilience and personal growth in young people following Hurricane Katrina. I use these skills to help children and families develop positive interactions and better relationship skills. I can also help people of all ages overcome depression and other personal issues.

I work with children and adults using Person-Centered, Solution-Focused, Reality Therapy, and other evidenced-based techniques as they fit clients' needs.
Struggling with finding your true voice? Hesitant in making the best decisions for yourself? Spending too much time worrying about what others think or what they'd expect of you? Take a deep breath... Life is complicated. Balancing work, family, relationships, living life for others can overshadow living for oneself. It's not selfish, it's selfcare. It's important to take the time to address your personal needs and often caring for others can get in the way of doing so. Through a Therapeutic Alliance, Counseling creates a space where sorting through life's challenges and establishing balance becomes possible.

I also specialize in working with younger children /adolescents and empowering parents for better family dynamics.
Therapy involves collaborating together to identify your strengths and to develop effective solutions to the issues, patterns, thoughts and actions you are experiencing in your life. I strive to provide clarification, encouragement, interpretation and information to facilitate you working toward your desired goals. Our emphasis will be on here-and-now choices to re-orient yourself to the present rather than just exploring the past. We all have an underlying drive to reach our maximum potential; I see therapy as a tool for uncovering that drive and finding self-actualization and my role is to encourage you in that exploration.
