Accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO
I am a counseling psychologist with experience in psychotherapy/counseling (individuals, group, and relationship/couples) and psychological assessment (including ADHD and disability). I have worked with many different presenting concerns including: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, partner relationship problems, trauma, gender transition, and much more. I have particular expertise in treating LGBTQ+ individuals and couples.
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.
Please be aware that I am in the process of moving out of state in June, 2018. Despite my move, I will remain licensed in Louisiana and plan to continue serving Louisiana patients via teleconference after my move. Many patients feel that teleconference works very well for ongoing therapy. If you live anywhere in Louisiana and believe that videoconference might be a good option for you, please contact me to schedule a time for an initial appointment.
In addition to general therapy with people from many cultural backgrounds, I have a lot of experience working with many people who fall under the broad transgender umbrella. Transgender rights, access to good medical treatment, mental health care, and social justice are particular passions of mine. If you are transgender, agender, gender-queer or non-binary and need therapy and/or an evaluation for hormones or surgery, please follow this link for more information about how I can help:
