Get to Know Me
In 1988 I became a member of the Louisiana Bar Association after my tenure at Loyola Law School. I practiced law for several years, but felt a strong desire to devote my time and energy in assisting others in the pursuit of self-knowledge, growth and the alleviation of suffering. From there I attended Tulaneʼs graduate school of social work, receiving my Masterʼs degree in Clinical Social Work in 1992, with honors in research.
After graduating, I worked for LSU Health Science Center where I served as an assistant professor teaching psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers models of treatment and family mediation, as well as serving as the director of clinical services and providing supervision of students in all three disciplines. While at LSU’s Health Science Center, I also taught many courses on psychotherapy, and family mediation.
Welcomed back to my alma mater, I have served as an adjunct faculty member at Tulaneʼs graduate school of social work, teaching courses including practice methods, group process and counseling, and family mediation. Additionally I have been a presenter at many continuing education workshops on topics including family mediation, integrating spirituality into therapy, and social work ethics.
Ten Years in Private Practice
Since 2005, I have been in private practice treating a variety of issues in work with adults. My ofﬁce is in the Uptown/University area of New Orleans, near Tulane and Loyola Universities. My practice follows my training and past experience in working with adults who have mood disorders, have a need for family mediation, or look for a therapist who is skilled at integrating their spirituality into therapy.
