About My Clients

I work with clients in all stages of adulthood (18+) and assist them as they work hard to explore and process what ails them, uncover the depths of their life stories, and gain insight into their presenting issues. My sessions are designed to challenge and empower my clients to channel their courage, honesty and creativity to resolve their dilemmas so that they may get to a place of wellness and become the people they want to be.

My Background and Approach

I am a provisionally licensed professional counselor. I earned a Master of Science degree in Counseling from Loyola University (New Orleans) in 2019. Currently, I am a PhD candidate at Tulane University in Aging Studies. I practice therapy from an existential perspective and have experience working with a variety of issues (see below!) I specialize in issues related to death, loss, change, isolation, responsibility, meaning and choice. My clients learn how to adapt to grief, anxiety, and depression, reconcile with their traumas, develop awareness into their way of being, and take ownership of their lives so that they may find peace and be the person they want to be. With me, you can expect a warm 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 paydirt of deep work— creativity and self-discovery— and the keys to discovering the solutions to your problems.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
