**Conveniently located in Prairieville** I have the belief that all people are striving for health and happiness despite life's uncontrollable curve balls and having some self-defeating behaviors. I have a true desire to help others and have been a Social Worker for 16 years. Many situations in life can be difficult, cause stress and will challenge us emotionally. My approach is to assist clients in identifying their strengths and grow new skills to achieve overall wellness. I provide support and education for individuals as they encounter the "next thing" to challenge them.
I specialize in working with children, adolescents and women enduring life's struggles. My experience includes counseling toddlers through seniors to improve mental wellness. I can help you to combat anxiety, establish healthy boundaries, improve communication, grow parenting skills, process bereavement, recover from substance use, and more.
I offer a comfortable, safe and compassionate environment to promote self-awareness through personal exploration and healthy growth. My goal is to empower clients to build healthy foundations with a positive rippling effect. I believe in a collaborative approach and look forward to us working together to restore your wellness.
