I earned my Master’s in Social Work from LSU in 1993 and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Louisiana in 1996. I have worked with people in the midst of crisis, people with chronic mental illnesses, children and adolescents in foster care, people with a dual diagnosis of substance dependence and mental illness, and individuals, couples, and families going through a variety of struggles.
Trauma, grief, and loss disconnect us from self and others and are major causes of emotional pain and suffering. For the past 10 years in my private practice, I have been helping people with deeper healing so that they may reconnect with themselves and develop or repair meaningful relationships with others.
The therapies I offer are ones that I have personally benefited from in my own life. I participate in peer supervision and consultation groups which help me with integration and accountability in my professional practice and personal use of my skill set.
