I am a self- motivated and organized Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I earned my Masters of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Southern University of Baton Rouge. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Dillard University in New Orleans, LA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Currently, I am a Doctoral Student at Walden University in the Counselor Education and Supervision Program.
I have provided counseling services to clients dealing with a wide range of concerns, both physical
and mental. I am an active listener that has the ability to adapt to various environments and clients with different life circumstances. I enjoy working with teens, young adults, and adults. I have experience working with
clients on a wide variety of issues. Examples include: depression, anxiety, trauma, professional burnout,
stress management, self-esteem, career counseling, couples counseling, marriage and family issues,
and grief and loss.
I have 8 years of experience as a Rehabilitation Counselor for Public Sector Vocational Rehabilitation

Moreover, I have experience working in a Domestic Violence Shelter and a Women Rehabilitation Center.
I believe that counseling can be a vital stepping stone during certain seasons of our lives.
