I am a counselor and therapist with 20 years experience in
I have extensive experience working with trauma
survivors and with people who have chronic or
life-limiting illnesses. For many years, I worked with
domestic violence survivors and women who had experienced abuse and violence both in childhood and in adulthood. Following that, I worked in hospice and in medical settings, helping people with their illness-related challenges and end of life issues.
More recently, as my own life circumstances have been changed by motherhood, my focus has been more on family, child and relationship issues. In an effort to become a better parent myself, I went back to school to learn more about children and how to communicate with them, so I have lots of effective tips and techniques. I decided to open a private counseling practice to be better able to share this knowledge in a private and comfortable setting.
I graduated from Tulane University New Orleans in 1997 with a Master of Social Work and have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Louisiana since 2000. I am a Registered Play Therapist with specialized training in Play Therapy and in Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT), obtained at Loyola University's Center of Play Therapy Education.
I am also a Board Approved Clinical Supervisor (BACS) qualified to supervise social workers towards licensure in Louisiana.
