I am a therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and maintain a private practice in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have worked in the field of behavioral health for almost 25 years and follow a holistic approach to counseling. I completed my Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of West Alabama and an Advanced Certificate in Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University. I am a licensed counselor in the states of Louisiana and New York. I am an advocate for minimizing the use of psychotropic medication and increasing the use of mindfulness and meditation techniques for the treatment of anxiety and depression. I am a master teacher of Kemetic reiki and believe this modality integrates well with cognitive therapy to facilitate healing.
