I am very passionate about working with and for my clients.  I am a lifelong learner and pursue resources that assist my clients in facing challenges and in enriching their valued lives.  I grew up in south Louisiana and attended college locally, graduating from LSU in 1980 with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.


Currently, I maintain memberships in the following professional organizations:


International Centre of Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy

National Health Services Providers in Psychology

My license to practice psychology is under the Louisiana State Board of Examiners of Psychologists

My Approaches

I have trained and evolved through a number of approaches, including insight oriented therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, hypnosis, mindfulness, and solution focused therapy.  I am a more active therapist and work to be resourceful for my clients.


COUPLES AND FAMILY COUNSELING

In the last years, I have revisited training in couples counseling.  I primarily use two approaches - EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and Gottman methods, the two best researched therapies.


GROUP COUNSELING

Group counseling can be a very powerful experience. Within the safety of group, individuals can be supported to face ongoing challenges.
