Let's Get Started!
Hello. I’m a Licensed Master’s Level Social Worker (LMSW) that received my Master’s degree in social work from Louisiana State University. For the past four years, I have worked as an intern under a contractor for Delaware State Correction, where I provided services for both inpatient and outpatient clients and volunteered to help those most ashamed and shamed by society. In my advanced internship, I worked with frontline healthcare workers at Our Lady of the Lake Medical Center in Baton Rouge during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. I have done group and individual therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I’m a longtime professor of English and Cultural Studies and received my PhD in Literature and Criticism in 2004.
Let's talk about sex
I am approved to provide sex therapy under supervision by the American Association of Sexuality Counselors, Educators, and Therapists (AASECT), and can implement a range of therapy for couples and persons of all ages that are having problematic behavior or feel great shame about their sexual feelings, attractions, and relationships with others. I specialize in paraphilias and have experience in sex offender treatment, high-risk behaviors, as well as those adults attracted to minors.
What to know about me
I am a gentle, attentive, and kind therapist that treats all clients as valuable human beings. I use an existential psychological approach to therapy from the works of Dr. Yalom in that people are happy and content when they find their own purpose and meaning in life.
Why I love what i do
I’ve treated those with anxiety, child abuse pasts (domestic and sexual), PTSD, compulsive behavior, eating disorders, addictions, mental illness, ADHD, and those on the spectrum. Let's get started today. Please feel free to call me at 301-246-3038 to book your first session with me.
