Accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO
I am a counseling psychologist in New Orleans / Metairie. 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.
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, but it is not right for everyone. If your needs are likely short-term, or if you feel that teleconference might be a good option for you, please contact me to schedule a time for an initial appointment.
If you are transgender, agender, non-binary, or gender-queer and need counseling/therapy and/or an evaluation for hormones or surgery, please follow this link for more information about how I can help:
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: .
Although I love group therapy and find it to be helpful for many of my patients, I will not be able to provide group therapy because of my upcoming out-of-state move.
