Keyonne is married and a mother to two amazing teenagers. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Ashford University and graduated from Capella University with her Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy. Her graduate work was recognized by both Chi Sigma Iota Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society; and Delta Kappa International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society.
Keyonne provides a therapeutic approach that is warm, empathetic and non-judgmental—a building block for the development of trust and disclosure within the therapeutic relationship. Keyonne also views cultural sensitivity as one of the most important tenets in therapy, which helps foster acceptance, mutual respect and understanding while recognizing, at the same time, the individuality of each client within the context of their own norms, attitudes, beliefs and experiences. Through purposeful collaboration, Keyonne explores clients’ inner experiences, their current behavioral, emotional and thinking patterns in order to facilitate change and create valued living.
She has worked with adolescents and adults struggling with mental health issues such as depression, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, co-dependency, anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, adjusting to life changes, divorce and relationships. Keyonne’s style is collaborative and solution-focused. She works with adolescents, individuals, couples and families. She is empathetic, relatable, and laid-back. She uses scientifically validated treatment approaches, which include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focus, and Mindfulness techniques.
In her spare time she loves spending time with her family and friends in her hometown of New Orleans, cruising and traveling internationally.
