Ready for positive changes in your life? I would be honored to help you on that journey! Happiness, decreased stress, and hope for a brighter future are all within your reach. My strength based and action oriented approach to counseling will help you feel empowered. I will work collaboratively with you as your counselor to give you the tools you need to accomplish your goals and live a more fulfilling life... a life full of passion, joy, energy, and sense of accomplishment.
I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and enthusiastically embrace my Cajun roots and culture. My strength based approach and focus on resilience and growth is a direct result of my New Orleans heritage and experience during Hurricane Katrina. I moved to Boston, Massachusetts where I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Northeastern University. After a few winters up north, I decided to move back south and came to Charlotte to attend my Master's program. I opened my practice in Davidson in 2014 and have enjoyed my work as a counselor serving the Lake Norman communities of Huntersville, Mooresville, Cornelius, Concord, and Davidson.
I am Board Certified and a Nationally Certified Clinician (NCC) that specializes in Adolescent & Couples Counseling. I received my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
I am proud to offer the Lake Norman area and surrounding communities with mental health counseling for teens, adults, couples, and families! I also have a specialty inpremarital counseling. I've created a comprehensive premarital workbook that is available for purchase.
I am also the Founder and Executive Director of LKN Connects, Inc., a Lake Norman non-profit organization working to bring resources to the LGBTQ community. I am one of the only counselors in the LKN area trained to work with transgender teens and adults, which I thoroughly enjoy. I have also received additional training and enjoy working with members of the LGBTQ community in both individual, couples, and family counseling. My clinical work with members of the LGBTQ community was ultimately what lead me to create LKN Connects, Inc. We are working to bring more resources, events, and ultimately a community center to Lake Norman!
I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, & Cigna and will also bill out of network for you. We work to make counseling affordable for all of our clients. I offer flexible appointment times, including late evening slots, to meet the needs of my clients!

The Fleur de Lis:
Born and raised in New Orleans, LA - the fleur de lis is a very special symbol to me. After Hurricane Katrina, the fleur de lis came to represent resiliency, optimism, strength, and the determination to rebuild despite difficult circumstances. My philosophy and approach to counseling is strength based and aligns perfectly with the values that the fleur de lis represents, which is why it is the perfect representation of my counseling practice.
