In counseling, I utilize an integrative approach that combines reality therapy, person-centered, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I have 14 years experience working with adults in a 12-step program. This experience has given me tools and knowledge that can help others achieve their goals. I also have over 3000 hours of experience working with children 6-18 on issues such as ADHD, behavior, emotional and mood problems, social difficulties, and adjustment issues. With both children and adults, I focus on the "here and now" and the issue at hand utilizing the strengths and abilities of my clients.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in New Orleans. I strongly believe that a developmental perspective is important when working with clients in therapy. A young child practicing social skills and working to connect with peers, a child entering adolescence and exploring his identity, or a parent with a new baby all represent life transitions that are part of the normal developmental landscape.

Is your child or teen struggling emotionally, behaviorally, socially, or academically? Despite everything you tried to help, progress has fallen short and the situation may have even worsened? You need answers, reasons for why this is so difficult, and you know this is something you cannot do alone. Through individualized, evidence-based assessment and treatment, we will create a plan for positive change that works for your family. If teachers, pediatricians, or other service providers are an essential component, I will do my best to establish a collaboration so we can find answers to your questions.

What Is Play Therapy? “Play Therapy is based upon the fact that play is the child ’s natural medium of self-expression.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
