If you are experiencing distress in your life and you are looking for professional assistance, I can help you create positive changes and build resilience for coping with life stresses. While my primary expertise is in the area of girls' and women's mental health, I can assist you with many issues including: * Depression and anxiety * Eating Disorders *Perfectionism * Self-esteem and identity issues * Grief and bereavement * Relationship and family conflict * Marriage and couples counseling * Work/family balance concerns * Self-injury * Sexual assault and trauma
I have worked as a professor of counselor education at LSU since 2000. I have authored 5 books: Depression in Women Across the Lifespan (2020); Swimming Upstream: Parenting Girls for Resilience (2016); Adolescent Girls in Distress: A Guide to Mental Health Treatment (2013); Eating Disorders and Obesity (edited, 2013); and Girls' and Women's Wellness (2008).
