How I Got Here

I was slated to begin my final semester of undergraduate studies in August of 2005. To most, that date might hold little significance, but as a native New Orleanian, it marks the onset of Hurricane Katrina. At the time I was considering law school and beginning LSAT prep. All of that changed overnight.

 

post-Katrina New Orleans, I became inspired to explore my desire to better connect and understand the needs of those around me. I began to understand that simply being able to identify and communicate what is troubling you can sometimes be half the battle.

 

Ready to sharpen my tools, I moved to California to pursue a Master of Social Work. I began my career as a therapist in a group home for parenting teens. From there, I transitioned to clinical social work at a patient-centered hospital, where I provided counseling in the areas of reproductive health, trauma, bereavement, chronic and catastrophic illness, and crisis intervention. I underwent training in human trafficking and ethical considerations.

Today, I run an inclusive and progressive private practice that offers open-minded evidence-based therapy for individuals and couples of all backgrounds.

My passion is de-stigmatizing therapy and helping others shake off the shame, guilt and negative thinking that slows down growth.

 

You're the expert on your life. My job is to listen compassionately and offer support in helping you achieve your goals.
