She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor and her Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University – Orlando.
Louisa was trained at Skyland Trail, a nationally recognized mental health treatment organization in Atlanta, offering psychiatric care alongside a holistic path to wellness. She has dedicated the last six years of her career to working in community mental health, serving as a Program Director and therapist in Morgan County, Alabama. As a National Health Service Corps Alumni, Louisa successfully fulfilled her commitment to serving one of America’s communities with limited access to care.
Deeply committed to her work, Louisa offers an environment that is non-judgmental and accepting. She conducts comprehensive evaluations and works with her clients to formulate individualized treatment plans tailored specifically to their goals. Louisa combines Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-focused therapy techniques to improve mood, insight, and outcomes.
Louisa specializes in treating those who suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, and has direct experience working with people at each and every stage of these illnesses. In addition, she has a special interest in working with busy, high-achieving women and the issues they face (Career & Stress Management, Perfectionism & High Expectations, Work-Family Conflict, Demanding Schedules, Food & Body Image Issues, The Imposter Phenomenon, Stigma related to Voluntary & Involuntary Childlessness, etc.) In a safe and supportive environment, she helps her clients regain a sense of adequacy, balance, and understanding, which ultimately leads to more fulfilling relationships, improved life satisfaction, and better health.
