Now accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO
Individual and Couples Psychotherapy/Counseling
I am a counseling psychologist in New Orleans / Metairie. I work with individuals, couples, and groups. I have expertise working with a variety of concerns such as anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, substance use, loss, phase of life changes, and personality disorders. I also specialize in affirmative therapy for sexual orientation, gender and transgender identity, and multicultural issues.
I believe that long-term psychological and relationship healing can happen through the process of empathic and supportive counseling. I seek to understand the worldview of my clients and work within their perspective. For more about my style of therapy, please visit my "Therapy Services" page.
Psychological Testing for Academic Issues and Disability Status
I conduct academic and psychological testing for intellectual disability, ADD / ADHD, dyslexia, other learning/developmental disorders, and gifted / talented. This testing is common in social security disability evaluations and is also part of obtaining academic accommodations in schools, universities, and standardized testing. For further information about psychological testing, please follow this link: .
Work through your challenges in a group! Whether its depression, anxiety, substance use, relationship problems, shyness, trauma, coming out, or some other struggle, group therapy can be a great help. The purpose of these groups primarily centers around helping people connect with one another, communicate/express their emotions openly, and find meaning in their lives by becoming meaningful in the group. They are open to nearly anyone from every walk of life and from any culture, race, age, and religion. Especially welcome to all sexual orientations and gender identities.
I am currently seeking new members for group therapy.
