About My Clients
Are you struggling to heal from trauma, addiction, or making the necessary changes to better your life? Starting therapy, especially to heal trauma, can feel overwhelming & difficult. But you don’t have to do it alone. If you are looking for someone to help guide you on this journey, want a relaxed environment, but a straightforward & direct therapist who vows to treat you with respect & compassion, let’s talk. I have weekend, evening, & telehealth appointments available to best meet your needs.
My Background and Approach
I approach therapy as a partnership between you, the client, and myself. I specialize in trauma & complex mental health such as OCD & other mood disturbances. As a Level 2 Certified Clinical Trauma Professional I have undergone a variety of trauma-focused trainings such as EMDR, CPT, and IFS. I am enrolled in a Level 1 Internal Family Systems (IFS) training & am a doctorate student furthering my expertise. I'm passionate about my role as a therapist & remain engaged in continued education & personal learning to be the best for my clients. I also specialize in military/veteran issues offering free therapy sessions to this population. I'm passionate about meeting my clients where they are to help them heal the burdens that lead to daily struggle. Visit my website to learn more about me and my approach.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a firm believer in giving back & putting as much good as I can into the world. I treat all people with compassion & kindness & appreciate & embrace the uniqueness of each client. I also embrace the teaching that my clients provide to me each day. I will not pretend to know or understanding something I do not. I am also known for my work as a volunteer with organizations such as Acadiana Veteran Alliance & The American Red Cross, & our local Counseling Association. I am the owner of Clarté Counseling, LLC which partners with various non-profits & events such as Acadiana Pride Group & RescYOU Group. I enjoy providing continued education to other mental health professionals on important topics such as trauma & military/veteran issues.
