They often say the most difficult part of therapy, “is walking through the door.” I believe there is a great deal of truth to that statement. Therapy is not only an investment in yourself, but it is an investment in your life. Effective therapy has the ability to positively impact your life and those surrounding you. I would like to help you navigate the challenges that you are facing. You are not alone and there is hope. I can guide you towards increased self awareness, positive change, and healing.
I work with all age ranges (6 and up). I work well with the following issues or diagnoses Trauma & PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Life Stressors, Family Issues, Loss, ASD Family Work, Academic Challenges, Behavioral Issues in Children, Toxic Relationship Patterns, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Codependency and more.
I am a Board Certified Clinical Social Work in the State of Louisiana. My licensure is as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and is given by the LABSWE or Louisiana Board of Social Work Examiners. In order to receive this speciality you are required to have a Masters degree in Social Work, 2-3 years of weekly Supervision following graduation by an LCSW-BACS, and to pass vigorous clinical licensing examinations. In order to maintain that license LCSW’s are required to continue to participate in continuing education yearly. LCSW’s have the ability to diagnose and treat most mental health issues.
If you come into my office, you will not see it plastered with diplomas and certificates. I hang what I am required to..and that’s it. You will rarely see me speaking in front of crowds or on TV. But what you will find, is an office that is used for therapy. And a therapist who focuses on Hope and Change. I like to think of myself as a quiet force, making change one day at a time. And if you decide to come see me, I hope you sit back and feel comfortable. Because this is a safe place.
