About Me

I am more than just a licensed professional counselor. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, etc. I use my personal experiences as well as clinical knowledge and wisdom gained through professional training to help my clients become the best version of themselves.

I offer a variety of services including: individual, group, teletherapy, couples,  and family therapy. I  have experience dealing with various topics, some of which are listed below. One thing I appreciate about this profession is that I am constantly learning from my clients as well, which in turn helps me to continue the cycle of helping others.

Besides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I will also use a variety of other counseling approaches  and techniques based on the needs of the individual(s) including trauma-focused therapy which can be beneficial for those who have experienced domestic violence, a traumatic pregnancy or any other recent or past traumatic event.

 

I earned my bachelors degree in Psychology and my masters degree in Counseling and Guidance from Louisiana Tech University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) approved by the Louisiana LPC Board of Examiners. I have a graduate certificate in Dynamics of Domestic Family Violence and I have volunteered with local domestic violence shelters to bring awareness to our communities since 2007. In 2018, I became the first Louisiana State Ambassador for 2020 Mom a non-profit organization based in California that works to bridge the gap between medical providers and mothers whom are dealing with maternal mental health issues. I  am also a volunteer postpartum support coordinator for north Louisiana for Postpartum Support International.

 

I provide clinical supervision for provisional licensed professional counselors seeking licensure in the state of Louisiana. I  am also available for speaking engagements and I can give speeches on a variety of subjects. In the past, I have spoken to several organizations about domestic violence and stress management. Please send an email in the contacts section to inquire about booking or if you have any questions regarding services or if you need a referral form. Looking forward to collaborating with you to renew your life from the inside out!
