With a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and almost a decade of experience working with children, adolescents, teens, and families in Northeast Louisiana, I am passionate about offering and providing elite therapeutic services to my community. I believe our environment and experiences shape us but do not have to define us or lock us into anxiousness, shame, confusion, or fear. I am an advocate for seeking self care through therapy services while learning to walk in the truth about ourselves and not the falsehoods of past trauma, interactions, and/or relationships.

I teach people how to be effective therapists at a local university graduate program as well as conducting workshops around the world and publishing extensively on how to help therapists be effective in helping people improve their marital, family, and business relationships. My private practice is intentionally small and individualized - My personal ethics are such that first interviews are designed for the client to have an opportunity to meet with me and decide if they think I can help them, and equally important, for me to decide if I think I can be of help. If I cannot help I will fire myself and recommend an appropriate referral. I do not accept insurance.
