My goal is to help clients discover, GREAUX and develop into the person they are meant to be, and ultimately live the life they want and deserve. I am passionate about providing non-judgmental, nurturing, and effective therapy in a safe and accepting environment.

As a Psychodynamic therapist and an EMDR clinician, I believe the therapy relationship is a window into my client’s inner world; in other words, therapy becomes a place where lifelong patterns can be recognized and understood, and new ones created. In addition to using our relationship to glean information and create meaningful changes, I evaluate my client’s past experiences starting with his/her/their earliest memories and most meaningful and transformative relationships. Together we identify: limiting beliefs, triggers, and past experiences that need soothing and attention. We agree on treatment goals and work together to meet them.
Once in therapy, clients often report feeling: more self-aware (and less critical of themselves), more confident to set healthy boundaries, and relief from the suffocating symptoms of anxiety and depression.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) an evidence-based trauma therapy. This therapy is used to address attachment and relational trauma; as well as, for getting to the root causes of anxiety and depression. I am currently “EMDR Therapy Trained” and am working toward my EMDR Certification. I am beyond thrilled to offer EMDR Intensive therapy to people who don’t have the ability to make weekly appointments and/or need relief sooner rather than later.
I am Certified in Telemental Health which means I can provide therapy services to my clients via a secure online video conferencing system.
As a cisgendered, straight white woman, I am dedicated to making sure that my practice is LGBTQIA+ allied and affirming. I welcome all ages, cultures, races, genders and sexual orientations. I continually attempt to learn and bring into awareness how my own biases, privileges, experiences, and perspectives shape and influence how I interact with the world, and with my clients.
Prior to opening As We Greaux Counseling Services, I worked for nearly a decade at Children’s Hospital New Orleans with children who were struggling with behavioral, mood, and emotional disturbances.
