I believe that in order to truly recover from the issues that occur in life, we must find ways to cope so that we are better able to handle them in the future. In order to do that, we must do the tough work of self-discovery. Whether the issue is grief/loss, addiction, depression, anxiety, or trauma, I can help you discover a path to the better version you aspire to be.

I believe good mental health is a part of your overall health and wellness. Imagine carrying a back pack that is heavy with loss, sadness, anger, guilt, stress, depression, anxiety or any other difficult emotion in response to your life. It may seem unbearable. When problems accumulate, stress can seem insurmountable. My career as a professor of Clinical Mental Health professionals and years of experience in helping others serves to help clients manage those overwhelming issues. My personal goal is to assist you by offering therapeutic interventions that will help you lighten your back pack. Therapy can be life changing.

I have had the privilege to work in multiple clinical settings before moving into private practice. I felt that this was much like mental health bootcamp and I found it highly beneficial. Through these experiences I was able to determine the areas of mental health that I am best suited to. In my practice I focus on Complex Post Traumatic Stress due to a variety of abusive experiences such as narcissistic, sexual, emotional, mental, and physical abuse. I also work with co-occurring disorders such as addiction and; bi-polar disorder, anxiety, and depression. I work with individuals, couples, teens and families.

My primary focus is working with men, women, and couples. With that focus, I’ve had experience working with substance and process addictions, eating disorders, professionals, other compulsive or problematic behaviors, and general mental health struggles, such as anxiety or depression. My passion is working with those struggling with healthy intimacy, appropriate attachment, and relational issues. Just with those three things can come so much confusion, hurt, and sadness. With help and growth, there can be healing, hope, and strength. I believe while we often get hurt in relationships, we can also be healed in relationships.

I believe that individual issues are often linked to past or present familial dysfunction. By identifying the roots of issues, my hope is that in the future you will have a greater ability to cope with stressful situations. Trauma is often an invisible wall that keeps us from recognizing our true selves. By breaking through this wall, we can plant new beginnings and obtain a better understanding of the world in which we live. Anxiety, depression, addiction, etc are all reactions to your story. Is it time to tell yours?

What type of Ruston 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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ruston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
