Hello! I work with adults, teens and couples. I help people heal past trauma, improve their relationships and change problematic behaviors.
Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in New Orleans, LA
Supervised by Matthew Watson, LPC-S
I offer a non-judgmental, harm reduction approach to addiction counseling that honors your goals and beliefs. I have worked in treatment centers, at the drug court, and in private practice helping people improve their relationship to alcohol, drugs, food, and other substances and processes. There are many different approaches to addiction and recovery, and I use a collaborative process to find the best fit for you.
I do parts work to help clients to heal past traumas and understand the parts of themselves they struggle with. There are no bad parts! Parts work can help strengthen the self and reduce harmful behaviors and beliefs. We can explore your parts at your comfort level, integrating IFS with other approaches when you prefer.
I work with monogamous couples, poly couples, straight and LGBTQ couples. I also work with high conflict couples and individuals who are struggling with abusive relationships or healing from past abuse. I help couples learn to self-regulate so that they can work through conflict without doing harm to each other or the relationship. I use somatic exercises to help couples learn self regulation, enabling better communication and conflict resolution.
