Education/Training:
I am a Christian Licensed Professional Counselor. I obtained a Psychology degree in 1987 from LSU, Baton Rouge (Geaux Tigers!) and a Master's Degree in Counseling from Loyola University, New Orleans in 1990. I practiced seven years as a Rehabilitation Consultant with a disability management company and became a stay-at-home mother of two for 12 years. Due to my own life journey taking an unplanned path, I recently returned to Loyola to add on graduate coursework towards renewing licensure and completed additional clinical and field work at Celebration Hope Center in Metairie, La, a dual-diagnosis substance abuse/addictions and trauma/mental health facility. I I hold several certifications, one being in sexual addictions/dysfunctions and have numerous training certificates in various areas of trauma recovery and sexual abuse recovery.

I also provide therapy for issues related to: childhood dysfunctional family issues and childhood abuse recovery, trauma and PTSD recovery, healing the child within and family of origin healing, breaking ties to past bondage, self-destructive and relationally destructive patterns, identity in Christ, self-esteem and self-worth, divorce recovery, grief/loss, pre-marital, healthy sexuality and sexual integrity, addictive and compusive behavior patterns, emotional and spiritual healing and guidance, Christian dating, purity struggles, soul ties and abortion trauma recovery, re-marriage, blending families/step-family and step-parenting issues and overall self-actualization and finding purpose, inner peace, prosperity and authenticity. I work with females and males ranging from older adolescents to adults. I primarily work with individuals but will often invite partners, spouses, and family members into certain phases of the healing journey as necessary and as deemed appropriate.

About Me

"Darkness into Light"
I was born in Baton Rouge in 1965 to Cuban, Catholic refugees who fled Communism for their freedoms, political and religious. I was raised Catholic with God, Christ and faith but did not have my own encounter with Christ until life as I knew it, ended, and I was at "rock bottom". I am now a divorced mother of two beautiful children, a son 16 and a daughter 10. I was married for fifteen years. We loved much but when two broken individuals come together thinking they can "complete" each other, that love becomes co-dependent and eventually, wounds, hurts, and unresolved issues from the repressed past show themselves and become self and relationally destructive. Unfortunately for us, we were unable to work through those deep issues and our marriage dissolved. At that darkest point in my life is where His light began to shine. It is where darkness meets light that healing begins.

"Christian/Catholic"
I call myself a "Saved Catholic", now fully enjoying the graces I receive in the house of prayer in which I feel at home but further basking in the wonder of the intimate relationship I have discovered with my formerly forgotten first love and new best friend, "JC" along with His Father and Spirit. My healing journey brought me to many different Christian authors, ministers, counselors, mentors and friends and through various experiences, I have developed a respect for all of His children, regardless of religion, and believe we are all "the body of Christ" as we are called to be His hands, feet, arms, eyes, heart to one another. I am about "relationship" not religion. I believe many who have been emotionally wounded and scarred in childhood and throughout, have also suffered from spiritual wounds resulting from "religious" people or churches giving messages of guilt, shame and condemnation and are faced with questions regarding how a Father who loves can allow such pain and tragedy in His children's lives. Spiritual healing is necessary as emotional and behavioral healing takes place.

"Broken into Beautiful"
As such, I practice as a "broken vessel/wounded healer" being used by God. I have my own life testimony and continue to be transformed by my Father and am passionate about working with those who feel broken. It is an honor and privilege to walk alongside them on their journey to becoming whole and beautiful. God is not a respecter of persons. What He has done for others and me, He can do for anyone. I sit before my clients, who have reached despair and hopelessness at times, and allow them to "borrow" my hope, faith and trust until enough is poured back into them on their own journey that they can grab their own. I witness miracles daily. Lives are transformed and healed, restored and redeemed, forgiven and used. With God, the impossible becomes possible!
