About

I am a licensed clinical social worker, and a licensed addiction counselor with over 20 years experience. Life can present many challenges, and how we handle these adversities is the key to who we become and our success. Seeking professional help is the first step to change. Through the years, I have worked with both male and female clients ranging in age from 16 to 85. I have extensive training in substance abuse and co-dependency and over the last ten years enjoyed working with the elderly and their families addressing end of life issues along with dementia.
I provide individual, couple, family, and group therapy in a non-judgemental, supportive environment. I utilize a variety of interventions individualized to the clients needs. Through this process mutual respect, understanding, and acceptance is achieved resulting in goals being met.
I have a tremendous amount of experience with the chronically mentally ill. My office is located in the heart of Metairie on Severn Ave.
