Women often carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. I understand that women experience a wide range of concerns, from self-esteem and body image issues to relationship challenges, work-life balance, and the impact of societal pressures. I am here to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore these issues together.In my practice, I take an integrative and holistic approach to women's mental health. I believe that our mental and emotional well-being is interconnected with our physical health, relationships, and overall life satisfaction.

With a deep understanding of the societal and cultural factors that impact women's lives, I am committed to helping you navigate through these complexities and find your own voice. We will explore the root causes of your concerns, identify any limiting beliefs or thought patterns, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles and create positive change. 

If you are a woman seeking support and empowerment on your journey towards personal growth and self-acceptance, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I am here to provide you with the guidance, tools, and encouragement you need to overcome challenges, embrace your strength, and create a life that reflects your true potential.

Welcome, you made it here! This is a wonderful first step in your path to healing. Most of us have experienced a range of life changing events, so I understand how hard it is to process and recover from these types of moments. The beauty about being human is that we have the ability to make changes to our lives in order to heal. I practice from a trauma-informed perspective and have experience in a variety of areas, but primarily, my focus is with men’s issues, mood/stress concerns, athleticperformance/recovery, and relationships. I am passionate about promoting healing to those facing adversity, unexpected outcomes, and injustice.

 

I approach counseling based on what my client needs and I adapt to what fits them best. As your therapist, you can expect to find a collaborative approach that is inviting, direct, personable, respectful, and empathetic.

 

We go through life in such unique ways so understanding you and your experience is my highest priority. Consider me someone you can develop a unique relationship with where you can be safe to be as emotionally expressive as you would like.

“Teach me what it’s like to be you.” 

 

It can be frustrating when you feel like no one is listening to you, especially if you feel judged for what you’re experiencing. Here, you will find genuine acceptance and a safe space. I offer therapy through a client-centered lens, providing unconditional positive regard and empathy. It is my goal that together, you and I can process life’s struggles and can collaborate to discover strategies that will work best for you. 

 

It is important for me to mold myself for your specific needs and allow multiple ways of communication. I am interested in combining talk therapy with play therapy and creative arts interventions for children, adolescents, teens, and adults. I am also interested in working with the LGBTQ+ community and their concerns related to integrating identities, confidence and self-esteem, coming out, etc. I also have advanced training in group counseling and will be implementing psychoeducation and psychotherapy groups for the LGBTQ+ community.

“We are all just walking each other home.” - Ram Dass 

Life can sometimes feel like a treacherous journey. There are unexpected twists, consisting of highs and lows. As a counselor, I want to walk with you on this path and be there with you on your peaks and in your valleys. Whether dealing with anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, or anything in between, I hope to help each client find a healthy balance that fits his or her lifestyle. I use an integrative approach to counseling to help better suit the needs of each client as the unique individual he or she is. 

My hope is to build a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients to help them grow and reach the goals they set out to accomplish. I am interested in combining traditional talk therapy with play therapy to serve children, adolescents, teens, adults, and the geriatric communities of Acadiana. I am interested in helping individuals overcome some of their anxiety and process ways to better cope with it. I have advanced training in Play Therapy and look forward to implementing groups for adolescents struggling with bullying and self-esteem in the future.
