I would describe myself as bubbly, thoughtful, and empathetic. I enjoy helping children develop the skills to reduce their anxiety and bolster their confidence. I strive to create a space where my clients feel comfortable bringing themselves as they are to our time together. I believe that the relationship between client and counselor is of the utmost importance and that partnering with parents is essential to success. Parents are the expert of their child, and collaboration and support between the counselor and parents is essential to growth and change in the child.
I have experience working with children, teens, and their families in individual and group settings. During that time, I found a passion for helping clients and their families through concerns such as anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, attention deficit and hyperactive behaviors, social struggles, and major life transitions. My goal is to work with clients as they develop new skills up and hone their strengths as they navigate the often overwhelming and confusing experience of growing up.
I am originally from New Orleans but moved to Mobile, AL as a child due to Hurricane Katrina. I am excited to be back in my hometown and counseling the children, adolescents, and families of the Greater New Orleans area. In 2020, I graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN with a BS in Human and Organizational Development. I continued my graduate studies at Vanderbilt, earning a Master of Education degree in clinical mental health counseling in May 2023.
