I have ten years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I also train master's and doctoral level student therapists at a local university to help clients confront any life challenges. Throughout my career, I have never met a truly "broken" person incapable of making positive changes, and I work collaboratively with my clients to resolve their unique issues. I intentionally keep a small practice to provide clients with dedicated and individualized attention. I return voicemail messages within 24 hours.

Making a human connection is what many people usually search for, and making that connection with a client is a beautiful highlight in the therapy experience. Usually, they need to be able to connect to someone with whom they can establish a collaborative relationship, and they typically seek to find improved insight into their current concerns.

Growing up watching my grandmother struggle daily with mental illness, I naturally grew to have a heart for helping other people. I have spent the last decade of my life in the helping community and I believe that it is my life’s purpose to help people actualize the life they wish to have. I explain my position as a therapist by saying this to my clients, “It’s not my job to fix you because you are not broken. It’s my job to help you see things in a different way that will help you to function better” I welcome you as clients to embark on this journey of healing. It’s not always easy but the results with be so rewarding.

It's difficult to reach out for help when we feel like we are at our lowest. I believe that it's important for you to realize that it's okay to feel the way you do. Although it might not feel like it, you are doing the best that you can.Everyone deserves to feel loved, worthy, and validated in their experiences. Whether you are an individual, couple, or family we must ensure that you feel these ways.

I work with those suffering from alcoholism and addiction who seek to be free from the personal hell created from it. The goal is to be free from that addictive relationship and form new healthy relationships. Professional literature demonstrates most successful results in treating addiction/alcoholism comes from working in groups with other alcoholics/addicts. However, many struggle with anxiety in group settings and need individual attention before feeling comfortable in a group. I can help.

Are you living the best version of "you"? Is what you are doing each day working to build a better life? What's holding you back from changing? These are questions I might ask during our first session. I approach therapy from a collaborative viewpoint. Together the client and therapist will build a therapeutic relationship that will produce positive solutions. I also encourage the client to become mentally and physically empowered by recognizing and changing their unconscious thoughts and ideas.

Seeking help can be a difficult decision especially when you are unsure of what that may look like for you. It is my belief that you are expert of your life but I can be here to assist you through a time of healing and growth. Therapy looks different for every person.

What type of Ouachita Parish mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
