Hello and hats off to you for prioritizing your personal well-being and accessing some additional support. My hope is that you can utilize the therapeutic relationship as a safe, non-judgemental space to honestly explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in Louisiana with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor and life coach. I work with individuals, couples and families to explore a range of challenges related to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, LGBTQ issues, substance use, family conflict and parenting challenges. I take a collaborative approach to our work together and encourage you to be a full partner in your healing and growth.
I work from a person-centered perspective, meaning that I work to meet each client where they are at and integrate a strengths-based approach. I utilize theories and techniques from the Gottman Method, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, Psychoeducation, and Solution-Focused Therapy among other modalities. My practice is also informed by my experience within mindfulness coaching as I've found these tools to be helpful in assisting people to develop a wider awareness and ability to integrate healthy coping strategies.
I look forward to providing you with the ongoing support, education and resources that will allow you to make proactive changes and move forward in your life with a sense of hope, confidence and connection. I look forward to hearing from you!

Virginia is so respectful of our time, our goals, and our growth. It’s amazing the care and attention she gives to us and is so supportive. I appreciate everything that she brings to the conversation in regard to being unbiased and so neutral. She offers such a safe, non-judgmental space for you to move around in freely. I look forward to the continued work that my partner and I have to do and I feel as though she’s 100% the best person to help us.
