MA, LPC associate
Hey, ya'll! Let's get to know each other.
Relationship building is a two-way street in my office. So just in case you were wondering, here is a tidbit about how I got here.
My journey in the field of psychology truthfully began in my childhood. It may sound cliché to say the field chose me, but it really did. I’ve always had personality traits that lend themselves to a helping profession: introspection, sensitivity, empathy, a knack for observation, etc. In short…
My greatest strength: I love people.
My greatest challenge: I love people.
I’m also a self-proclaimed science nerd. After a brief stint studying to become a physical therapist, I switched tracks to a more emotionally focused form of rehabilitation. I received my B.S. in Pyschology and Sociology from Louisiana State University, and my M.A. in Counseling from St. Edward’s University. In between studying and my therapist career, I was also fortunate to have gained experience in the SaaS industry as an Account Executive at a software company. My first experience as a therapist was working with adults in an inpatient hospital setting experiencing high acuity disorders and crises. I have treated for suicidality, depression, panic attacks, schizophrenia, personality disorders, chronic self-harm, and substance abuse to name a few. I have also undergone formal training on trauma therapy and suicide-risk assessment.
Thanks to that background at the hospital, I feel comfortable with most anything that comes my way. However now, as a private practice therapist, I get to enjoy a bit of a slower pace and a longer treatment process, as many clients come to therapy sessions weekly over a long period of time. In my private practice, I knew I wanted to cater to a population that I really knew inside and out, to give a clinical perspective to the problems that people like myself typically struggle to solve with just our own anecdotal experience. That’s how I became a therapist to millennials! My special interests include working with those in tech careers, therapy to help clients regain control of their lives after a traumatic experience, reintroducing hope for those in a battle with depression, and therapy to relieve stress and anxiety.

When I’m not in the therapist chair, you can catch me hiking, indulging in a good ol’ nap, dabbling in the software world, booking flights to new places, kayaking on Ladybird Lake, watching LSU football (geaux tigers!), and like a true people person, spending time with the ones I love.
Thanks for reading, and I hope I get the chance to know you too!
