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.
- Adjustment (to school/college, moving, new job, loss of a relationship, etc)

- Trauma/Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Adults Struggling with Adverse Childhood Experiences
- Adults with Parenting Challenges
- Personal Growth and Understanding
As a Psychodynamic therapist, 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 earliest memories and most meaningful and transformative relationships. I believe the client knows where we need to go, but I am not opposed to challenging, questioning, or pressing my clients when the need arises.
Once in therapy, clients often report: feeling more self-aware (and less critical of themselves), feeling more confident to set healthy boundaries, and feeling relief from the suffocating symptoms of anxiety and depression.
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. I also worked collaboratively with their parents to create health and wellness for the entire family. Click here to read how this work enhances how I work with my adult clients today.
I have also worked with adults in a domestic violence shelter, at a rape crisis center, and with kids and parents in a community mental health agency. I worked for the Grief Resource Center, providing group therapy for children who had lost a loved one. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado Boulder and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a focus on Disaster and Trauma from the University of Denver. I am a Louisiana Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC #4177) and a Registered Play Therapist (#27490195).
