I have been a Licensed Professional Counsel and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2001.
I work with individuals (9 years and older), couples, and families.
With children, my experience includes adjustment disorders, anger management, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Suicidal Ideation, and issues related to abuse and trauma. For adults, I focus on issues such as depression, anxiety, infidelity, marriage and family counseling, anger management, and past abuses and trauma.
My work experience includes the counseling and testing center at Tulane University, the New Orleans AIDS task force, St. Mary Behavioral Health Center as part of the South Central Louisiana Human Services Authority (presently) and private practice.
I am a retired pharmacist and have worked at DePaul Hospital dispensing and consulting with physicians in the area of psychoactive medications. My knowledge and experience in pharmaceuticals sets me apart from other therapists since I have in depth knowledge of medications.
My training also includes courses at Notre Dame Seminary in the area of Pastoral Counseling and Clinical Pastoral Education at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, TX.
