Has substance use begun to affect your life negatively? Do you make some progress and then lose control and end up right where you started? The vicious cycle of substance abuse is difficult for most people to overcome on their own. It can destroy your confidence and self-worth. You are not alone, and with the right support you can overcome this problem and reach your potential. Let me help you break free from the fear, anxiety, and shame of the addictive cycle.

As a specialist in substance use disorders, I can help you understand your situation and how to overcome it. We will work together, one-on-one to develop the tools and strategies you need to be successful.

I work collaboratively with clients to help them discover a path forward that aligns with their values and goals. I don’t provide a “one size fits all” program but an individualized experience that addresses your specific needs.

I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) in Louisiana, a Substance Use Disorder Registered Counselor (SUDRC) in California, hold a Master's degree in Criminal Justice, a Master's degree in Forensic Psychology, and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in Addiction Studies and Treatment. I have over 5 years and 8,000 hours of counseling experience. I have experience treating and advocating for members of the LGBTQ community, struggling mothers, pregnant women with addiction, and other underrepresented or marginalized populations.


All of my services are provided confidentially through phone or video sessions. Call or email me today to set up your free 30-minute consultation. Get started this week, convenient evening and weekend appointments are available.
