Licensed Professional Counselor
Barrier Breaking, High Accountability,
No Bullshit Therapist
Congratulations on the start of your Mental Wellness journey. Thank you for considering me to be your guide.
Let's start at the beginning: I was born to do this! The gift of Counsel is a special one (no more special than yours) and as many people have said to me, "It takes a special kind of person to do what you do." I simply have a passion for serving those in need and have done so by being an active part of programs that feed the homeless, being a foster/adoptive parent, and providing emotional support and sincere care for many children who still call me "Mom".
I spent many teenage years listening to the concerns of my peers, as I seemed to be a magnet for those who needed an open ear and a closed mouth. I learned early that people want to be heard, validated, and understood. You advise... they could take it or leave it. I knew so much of the business that as the horoscope journalist on the newspaper staff, I used it to create awesomely accurate readings (this is NOT my gift.)
I graduated Valedictorian from Francis T. Nicholls in 1990 (Geaux Bobcats!) I chose to nurture this gift through education and I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers) and my Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.
I am currently licensed as a Professional Counselor in Louisiana as well as Texas, where I offer Mental Health therapy through TeleHealth (Virtually).
