practice remains a passion, a privilege, and has been my sole career. My
experience exceeds 20 years, and I've been fortunate to work in varied facets
of the profession before opening my private practice in 2008.
in Clinical Psychology through the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Loyola University in New Orleans, I have a Master of Science
Degree. Through work with adults and adolescents on the inpatient units of
DePaul-Tulane, and work with Addiction Recovery Resources of New Orleans, I became credentialed as a
Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family
Therapist (LMFT), going on to become Program Coordinator of the residential
substance abuse program.
After crisp Texas and lush Louisiana, I relocated to the beauty of North Carolina in 2006. Our mountains bring their own form of healing
and, within them, I offer psychotherapy for adult individuals and couples of all kinds. It's inspiring to be part of the natural and
community resources here, as true healing comes not merely from
"fixing" singular problems, but in creating an overall healthy
lifestyle that becomes its own source of therapy.

What is the Art of Truth?
I see you as an artist actively creating and, thus, capable of recreating your life experience. Perception is reality, and we are powerful in the choice we have over our perceptions and reactions. At one time or another, we have all allowed negative expectations, memories, or assumptions to influence us in ways that make our fear come true...a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just as we create negativity this way, we're able to focus our attention toward becoming the person we want to be. It's not magic, but awareness. And the truth is not merely a set of facts, but the application of choice in perception. I've named my practice the Art of Truth after this primary concept and as a way of calling forth the mental Michelangelo in you.
