About My Clients
I have experience working with clients who struggle with addiction, depression & anxiety, relationship & attachment issues, grief, and trauma. I specialize in working with the Queer community, sex workers, and polyam individuals and couples.
My Background and Approach
I have worked at a number of different nonprofits around New Orleans in the past five years including Crescentcare, Family Services of GNO and Silence Is Violence, my work at these nonprofits has influenced my approach to counseling and my client-therapist relationships. Working from a trauma-informed lens, I work to facilitate a collaborative and empowering approach to counseling. My theoretical approach stems from a radical social justice paradigm with the incorporation of liberation-based healing practices, expressive arts therapy, feminist, and relational-cultural theory. Throughout the counseling process, I welcome feedback, disagreement, and authentic and honest communication. As a counselor and service provider, my role is to serve you. My counseling style is highly relational and I will be warm, authentic, transparent, and human in our work together.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I work from an anti-racist, anti-colonial, sex-positive, pro-disability justice, kink positive, fat positive, LGBTQ friendly, polyam-friendly, and strengths-based perspective. I hope to offer a space where in our work together, you will be supported in shared decision-making, choice, agency, and empowerment to determine your own unique path of healing. Social Justice and community organizing is another important part of my identity that influences my work as a counselor.
