About
As a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), I’ve had the opportunity to work with adolescents and adults in both inpatient and outpatient settings on issues like grief, cancer, gender identity, ADHD, anxiety/depression, anger, perinatal issues and more. I always aim to provide a safe and supportive environment, allowing patients to explore all the feelings and challenges that come up in our daily lives. Sessions are tailored to my client’s specific needs, and include a mix of therapeutic approaches including: behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eclectic, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and Brainspotting. Currently, my focus is with clients in need of perinatal care and members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as I am passionate about supporting these groups who are often marginalized and left without a voice. To provide more specialized care, I am actively working to gain my Perinatal Mental Health Certification (PMH-C) through Postpartum Support International. Additionally, I have completed Phase 1 of Brainspotting training with intent to finish Phase 2 in 2023. My journey began in 2013 when I became a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certified. After graduating from LSU with a Master of Social Work in 2017, I continued practicing in as many settings as possible to build on my skill set. Upon my credentialing as an LCSW, I worked in a variety of environments including a radiation oncology clinic, inpatient psychiatric units, private practice and telehealth.
