Hello I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a passion for working with children, adolescents, and individuals struggling with trauma either current or past. I work collaboratively with clients to explore their emotions, avoidances, recurring patterns, and past and present experiences and relationships. I strive to provide a listening and empathic presence, encourage interpretation and insight to work through presenting problems to achieve your desired goal(s). My hope is that my creative, caring, and straight forward approach to therapy provides a therapeutic relationship that allows you to feel welcomed, supported, and heard.

I see counseling as a process in which you and I, having come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore present concerns, define goals for an improved life, and work toward realizing those goals. It is my role to support and assist you in exploring your past and present life experiences while helping you identify patterns in thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that can both inhibit and support your growth.

This is a beginning; change is difficult. It's strength, not weakness, to seek help and make changes. Learning how to see our behaviors from a different perspective is valuable. Healing often comes through verbalizing our feelings. You will feel heard, respected, validated, receive constructive feedback and gain greater insight and understanding in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I focus on your strengths as a means to help facilitate change and promote independence. I am a very down-to-earth person and I am often told by my clients that it's easy to talk and relate to me.

Working toward a fulfilling life, while facing obstacles, can be hard. We all, at some point, find ourselves lost and stuck. I work collaboratively with clients to help them get through those stuck moments, to choose a direction, and to take steps toward the lives they really want. My methods are grounded in the proven Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which incorporates mindfulness and behavior-change strategies. ACT focuses on learning to live fully, even when painful things threaten to slow us down. I am also trained in several trauma-based approaches, including EMDR.

I enjoy following your lead to the topics and concerns that are most pressing for you. I also teach breathing exercises, meditation techniques, visualizations and communication strategies. I use both structured methods like CBT and EMDR and my own intuitive understanding to help you heal. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, trauma and grief. For me, therapy is a way of gently holding up a mirror to see our inherent clarity and wisdom that is like the blue sky above the clouds.

Beginning therapy can be one of the most challenging, and rewarding, quality of life decisions a person can make. I believe the rapport between therapist and client to be the foundation for promoting awareness, insight and personal growth for present struggles and identifying the role long standing patterns play. Using client’s existing strengths, my clients and I develop coping strategies through a collaborative approach, and work toward achieving greater balance and healthier patterns. I work with a wide range of couples, adults and young adults.

Have you ever said "Music is my therapy"? Through music therapy, we can work together to discover, develop, and define ways in which the use of music can directly facilitate achieving your personal goals. With every client, my immediate goal is to meet that person where they are. It is my ethical obligation and privilege to acknowledge, explore and learn about each person’s culture and context in order to authentically meet them where they are. Every human being is dynamic and evolving, so person-specific goals will emerge through the relationships that form through through the use of music.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I provide individual holistic psychotherapy and mind-body skills training (guided imagery, meditation, relaxation, mindfulness, etc). In addition to providing counseling using a wellness approach (rather than the medical model), I also use mind-body skills training to help clients move towards personal growth and stress reduction and to better cope with transition and developmental processes. My theoretical approach to counseling is somewhat eclectic, but largely humanistic, existential, and integrative. I work with clients on examining and building upon the whole person holistically.

Are you struggling to recognize yourself or the world around you? Perhaps experiences from your past are keeping you tethered in place and you are having trouble moving forward. Maybe you are starting a new chapter in your life after a big transition or life-changing event. Counseling is an excellent place to deep-dive inward, and offers the relief and safety of connection, intention, and a way back to yourself—the free, integrated self you’ve imagined. Counseling can also offer ways to close the uncomfortable gap between your anxious, stressed, current-reality and developing the wholehearted life you desire. Glad you're here!

Life as Art Studio was conceived to help individuals, families, groups and organizations find their truth, find their voice. The mission is to work together to unearth talents and unblock creativity. To do so I use primarily action methods through my extensive training in psychodrama. The belief is that most of us need to increase our spontaneity in order become more authentic, true to who we really are. We may suffer because we have lost or never found who that true self is. Maybe we have been taught to think we must be some one else's idea of who and how we should be in the world.

I am a native New Orleanian who has experienced the power of resilience and rebirth in our people and our city. I believe all persons have this same capacity within themselves. Much of my work has been with underserved populations, and it has shown me that no matter where a person comes from or what they have been through, we all face many of the same challenges. Sometimes our thoughts, fears, hurt, anger, past traumas, and experiences keep us from moving on and changing. We begin to feel stuck. I’m not sure we can ever completely free ourselves from ourselves, but we do have the power to become happier and more fulfilled.
