About My Clients

Whether you are haunted by your past, feeling anxious about aging or death, or taking stock of your life and want to make a change, you are in the right place. My sessions promote self-discovery through which my clients gain clarity into and resolve what ails them. It is so special for me to witness my clients as they channel their courage, creativity, and responsibility to lead fulfilling lives and enjoy meaningful relationships.

My Background and Approach

I have a MS in counseling from Loyola University (New Orleans) and a PhD(c) in gerontology from Tulane University. I specialize in troubles related to aging, death, loss, change, isolation, responsibility, meaning, and choice. I help my clients process guilt or regret, tolerate life's uncertainties, and gain confidence in their choices. My clinical priorities are to aid individuals adapt to life’s realities, develop awareness into their choices and relationships, and take ownership of their lives so that they may unlock a sense of purpose, well-being, and life-satisfaction. With me, you can expect a warm, transparent, and encouraging therapeutic environment and sessions that are constructed to suit your specific needs. In our time together, we will follow your lead and I will provide structure and clinical guidance so that our time together can be as productive as possible.

My Values as a Therapist

Thomas Hardy said, “If a way to the Better there be it exacts a full look at the Worst”. Until we confront our problems, fears, and the parts of ourselves we don't like or are ashamed of, there is no chance for a better life. Psychotherapy is hard work. It takes a lot of courage and grit to review ourselves and our choices. However, through the painstaking process of self-examination comes the reward of deep work— creativity and self-discovery— and the keys to discovering the solutions to your problems. You can do this.
