Therapy Services 

Put Experience on Your Side

As an experienced licensed clinical social worker, I see therapy as a shared journey. My role is to guide and support you in overcoming challenges, helping you develop emotional strength, and explore your core issues for a more fulfilling life. I customize treatment plans with honesty and compassion. Together, through EMDR intensive therapy, we work towards your well-being.

 

I am licensed in Louisiana and currently accepting new clients with in-person sessions in Louisiana or online via HIPPA-compliant video conferencing for clients in Louisiana and only in an intensive EMDR setting.

About My Approach

As a certified EMDR Therapist, I use the Adaptive Information Processing  (AIP) Model to inform treatment choices.  The AIP model proposes that trauma gets stored and stuck in our brains and becomes the basis for our perceptions, symptoms, and behavior. I see therapy as a way to create new perceptions and adaptive associations that will aid in healing. I help a diverse range of clients unlock their full potential and successfully move toward recovery. In our initial meeting, we'll address your concerns and assess our compatibility as client and therapist.

About Intensive Therapy

I use an innovative EMDR approach that reimagines weekly therapy, drawing from my decades of experience and from research-backed methods. EMDR Intensives offer personalized treatment plans designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for faster healing.

Have you sensed that something profound has yet to change, but you’re not sure how to shift into a new experience of yourself with your current therapist?An intensive can be complementary to ongoing individual therapy, enhancing its effectiveness
